Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony Grand Wega 42"

My Dad has a 42" Wega he is getting rid of, Sony basically did not want to fix it so they replaced it and told him to do whatever with the old one. I do not know the exact model number, the first problem was a blue hue across the bottom of the screen, Sony fixed this and now the TV takes anywhere from 5 - 20 minutes to turn on, works fine when it gets up and running just very slow getting there. So I am considering tinkering with it, A) its free and B) if I break it, it was free :)

So a couple of questions:

What is the possible probelm?
Is this a quick fix and any idea of an estimate for parts?

My concern is that since Sony replaced the TV instead of fixing it that this may be a lost cause.

Thanks for the input

My tv is green. I replaced the bulb and it is still green.


It is the screen no the bulb. Honestly I would return the bulb and get rid of the TV. The repair is not worth it in the end.

Sony Grand WEGA LCD with no picture


If this is the model I am thinking of, don't bother fixing it. Call up sony and they will should offer you an new sony bravia lcd tv. You can either get the free one or upgrade from the free one to a bigger one. I guess that there is some recall with the light engine and sony is giving out this offer. This happened to my grandma to her 42" grand wega. The ending result was that she got a 46" 120hz sony bravia tv for, if I remember right, $250. I hope that this helps. Good luck and happy new years!!!

Not knowing what type of TV you have dosen't help, but if it is LCD or plasma, the problem is pixel failure. There is no repair, only replacement
