Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV
This TV is a 2005 and is working fine until recently. I noticed a light blue line from the left side to the middle of the screen. Sometime it is very noticeable. Is there a fix or adjustment?
This is a convergence problem. You will need the stk's changed and a pico fuse or 2. also from looking at the pic you might want to clean the lenses and mirror after the repair to bring back some of the vibrant colors the set once had when it was new. This repair should run you anywhere from $300-$500 depending on your area and the tech that comes out. If you need more information or would like to try to fix it on your own please let me know.

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.

SOURCE: We have a sony wega KFWS60.
Do you mean KF60WE655. I don't recognize the model you show. I'm sure your talking about an LCD rear projection Sony. Your trouble is in the Optics ( light engine). Over time the Lamp has destroyed an internal filter ( glass element ) . This Blue haze or film will probably continue to get worse and grow across the entire screen. The only fix is to pull out the Optics and send off to Sony or another re builder.
Up until June 30, 2008 some of these models were being fixed at no cost by Sony.

Had this problem bout 2,3 years ago...it was fixed in about 5 minutes with the help of this article
Tonight I have to do this fix again..the blue lines came back about a week.
I strongly urge you to save the web page locally on your hard drive or print it out and place with the tv manual....

The EEPROM needs to be reprogrammed. You should contact Panasonic customer care as they may fix this at no charge to you.
