Sony tv kds-r60xbr1 has yellow tint


Sorry to hear this, but your optical block has failed. Sony replaced a ton of these under warranty and then extended the warranty on these SXRD sets so they could replace many more. They even replaced the sets with LCD sets after a class action law suite. This was a "black eye" for Sony TVs and they stopped making the SXRD sets. Your set is vintage 2006 and there is no longer a warranty. You could replace the optical block with a rebuilt one, but the cost would be about the same as getting a new 60" LCD. I would suggest you do the latter.

My sony grand wega 50" screen has started to go green, no adjustments are working. The bulb is new since may. any suggestions.


Hello. Sorry for bringing bad news but your optics block is getting bad. It is very common issue with Sony LCD projection TV and even recall was issued. You can call Sony Customer Service to figure out if your model still covered by Sony warranty. It is very expensive repair, major optical assembly in your TV have to be replaced and total cost is not less than $600.
If you not covered by warranty anymore - there are not many options but to look for new TV.
Green tint on your screen will get progressively worse.
There is nothing you can do by yourself, unfortunately.
Good luck!
Russ.

Green picture


This is a bad optics block or sometimes called a light engine. The part will need to be replaced by a qualified technician. Look at the following Sony website as the cost of replacing the optics block should be of no cost to you..

Sony KDF 3LCD Screen has a horizontal orange tint stripe at top


This problem is caused by a defect in the optical block. It causes about 1 - 1.5" tint usually green, orange, or yellow at the top of the screen. The part is very expensive, retails around $600-800 usually. You cannot fix it without replacing the optical block. They did have an extended warranties for this particular issue because of a class action lawsuit on certain models. Call Sony to see if your model is one of the ones they extended the warranties.

Green tint on entire screen of Sony KDS-55A2020.


When I was reading the instructions for this tv, It was saying if the projection bulb is reaching the end of its life you will get strange color changes. You can also reset your settings in the setting section. Go to your menu and go to settings and them picture. You can reset your picture to factory settings in this menu. Now you can reset in different modes also. You have to be in these modes to set factory settings. These are Vivid, Standard and Custom. Take a look. You can go to sony and it tells you haw to do all of this. You punch in your TV type and you can go into the instructions. I learned how to change my projection lamp.

Blue cloud on the bottom center of the screen Sony xbr 70


If this is a KDSR50XBR1 or a KDSR60XBR1,
It is a bad Optical Block and you need to call Sony at 1-800-222-SONY asap to get a exstended warrenty repair. If it is not, and it is out of warrenty I would still call to see what they will do. In either case, it is a Optical Block causing the problem.
Hope this Helps,

Yellow tint


The LCD green or blue inside the optical block is defective now. the optical block is the core of the tv (is the projector inside the unit "expensive"). make sure calling to Sony company and try to see in your particular serial # is covered under an extended warranty for this particular set. or at least ask them where you can get a good autorized workshop close to your area.

Sony KDS-50A2000 screen is in green tint


My Sony KDS 50 A2000 is 17 months old. Its the 50 Inch SXRD projection model. About two weeks ago the screen developed a green tint with cannot be tuned out, then a few days later the message began to appear on the screen that the bulb was nearing the end of its life and must be replaced.
Fortunately I have the Circuit City extended warranty.
I called and within just a few days a serviceman came out and replaced the projection bulb.
The Result: No change in the picture, the green tint remains on all channels, so I'm awating the next service call. Under the service warranty they have the option to repair or replace this set. If indeed this is the light engine (optical block) which I suspect and its going to cost $1,000 or more I may be looking at a new set.
When it works this is a great TV, but I have had three Sonys now including two other standard CRT models and now this one joins them in the junk heap, the other two also bit the dust after just about two years. Is it time to give up on Sony?
I know they have a class action suit on a similar model for this same problem. Caveat emptor
