Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-70XBR950 70" Rear Projection HDTV
SOURCE: blue shadow
You have a bad light engine or in Sony TV sets, it is called an Optic Unit Block Assembly. This is a very expensive part and should not be attempted to be replaced by a novice. Call an authorized Sony repair place to have this repaired. Good Luck

You need a new projection lamp.......(XL-2100 replacement DLP
lamp)..... go to this web site to get the lamp you need for your TV
model KDF-70XBR950 70inch----
------ This web site shows you how to install it yourself. ----
http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/sony/XL-2100U.php --------- I strongly suggest that you get a SONY manufactured replacement lamp NOT a cheaper lamp from another manufacturer... it costs about $200.

Unfortunately the Optical Engine will need to be replaced to fix the problem. It is a very costly repair. Most of these Optical Blocks run around 800.00 for the part it self and labor will vary between 180.00 and 270.00.
You could try to call Sony at 1800-222-SONY
and see if they could help out with the cost.
I hope this helps,

Hi,what you are experimenting it's a faulty light engine problem,this is a common failure on Sony tvs.What's happening Is that your tv carries 3 chips blue,green and red, those chips are in charge of creating the colors on your tv .When these chips start to melt you will get color discoloration.Repair cost will be very highly around $400-$600 The part you need it's called the light engine or optical block ,some people are getting sony to repair their tv at no cost,I suggest to contact them to see if you qualify.God bless you!
