Re: Sony KV-32FV27 Picture Discoloration
It appears that the greenish discolored area could be cause by the Yoke or it could also be some magnetization on the screen as well.
If it's the yoke that moved slightly out of position, it can be adjusted, but i would suggest to let a repair tech do it due a high voltage around the area.
Try unplugging the TV for some time and plug it back in and hopefully the demagnetizer circuitry might be able to clear the greenish spot.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi,if its a an LCD RPTV it sounds like a light engine problem.Basically your tv uses 3 LCD chips that create the image .Each chip is like a tiny screen that blend together to get the colors and picture right.They are green,red and blue.When they start to fail you will start to get color discoloration or that red band you are getting.May the Lord Jesus bless you!
it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper effect...it immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at email@example.com as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam
I have replaced alot of these light engines for this problem.
Yesterday I received a letter from Sony saying they are going to give an additional warranty to have the optics replaced.
I just checked, your model is one of them and Sony is replacing the optic block under an extended warranty, regardless of the purchase date, until the end of October 2008.
Contact Sony for an Authorized Service Center in your area or go to this site to read about it:
Have this repair done on your set and it should save you about $1300.00 to $1500.00 on the repair.
Hope this helps.
