Yellowish tinge Shortly after replacing a burned out projection bulb in my Sony KDS50XBR, the entire viewing screen acquired a yellowish tinge. No amount of adjustment was able to bring back the proper colors. To make sure it wasn't the incoming signal, I attached another tv to the cable and everything was fine. The picture and audio are fine, expect for the yellowish haze which makes everybody look like they've got jaundice!

This normaly has to be the colour temperature of the lamp that you put in.

When you bought the new lamp, was it an original, or did you substitute it for a lower cost or different replacement that electricaly and mechanicaly fits?

Check out if the lamp is the original type. If so, you can try to call the manufacture tech support to get their opinion.

It is possible, but in your case I am not strong to think so, there may be the slight possiblity that there is a defect in the drive circuits for the video processing.

Yellowish cloud in the middle


Replacing the Optical Block will cure the problem. Due to the cost of the repair i would call Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if they could assist you in the cost of repairs. You would need to get a Authorized Service Facility out to confirm the problem and give you a estimate to in turn give to Sony. The amount they they will pay for is of course up to them but it is better than paying the entire cost yourself.
Hope this helps,

Lamp nearing end of life


Your best bet is to get a good TV Repair guy out to your house, that has the Sony Service Code Manual for your set. The TV Tech can access your Service Codes and clear that message out, and possibly make some adjustments that can eliminate the yellowish hue.

The yellowish hue could also come from smoking in the house or burning candles. I have 2 friends that still smoke and had the same problem with their Rear Projection Sony set. When the tech took their set apart he found the brown tar & the soot from the candles had covered the lens and much of the lamp area. They ended up getting a new set because of what it would have cost them to fix & clean the old one up.

There are at least 2 or 3 fans that pull air into every Rear Projection set. The air is pushed out the back of the set to keep it cool, so if they are sucking in dirty air, it will cover the electronics very quickly and greatly shorten the life of the set.

This is not as much of a problem for the newer "Flat Panel" (non-projection) sets because they usually do not need fans. They just let the heat rise throu the vents in the top of the cabinet.

Greenish/Yellowish


No easy fix for a TV. If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. As long as there's no burning smell, and the set is okay even when hot, after running for awhile, it's possibly bad connections on the convergence board. If you have some decent soldering skills and a familiarity with the insides of a TV, you may even save yourself a repair bill by getting some bad solder connections cleaned up. If its not the connections it could be the STK chips, or the board itself. Take care
