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

3 Answers

Cleaning Optical Block

I have a Sony Grand Wega 42" LCD projection (KDF-42WE655) from a couple of years ago that has the pink spots that many people are reporting on this website. As opposed to paying a large sum of money to have a tech come out, take it apart and replace the block, I would like to clean this myself. Could someone please give me proper instructions for disassembling the front panel from the TV? I have removed the scews around the panel, however it still seems firmly attached to the base. Thank you.

Mike

Sorry to be teh bearer of bad news, but the optical block (light engine) can not be dis-asembled outside of a cleanroom. You can remove the rear cover of the set and clean the mirrors and glass. That may help, but usually these typesd of symptoms are an indication that the light engine is starting to fail. The light engine can be replaced by you if you feel comfortable. The part is still available.

Keep us posted.
