Yellow and pink line accross top of screen.

I have a Sony KDF-E42A10. Had it for about 16 months now and am getting two 1 inch bars accross the top of the screen accross all inputs. The top one is pink and then right below it is yellow. Any thoughts on what might cause this or how to resolve it?

    My Sony 46 inch lcd projection screen has a yellow and pink line running across the top of it. This starting happening after a long power outage following hurricane Gustav.

    Finally got around to calling a service tech about this and just wanted to let anyone know of the results. It turned out that this is a pretty common issue because when I called the guy he knew the part to order right away. Came by with the new part (I believe he said it was the light engine or optics engine) and replaced it in about 30 min. Quick and easy. Problem solved. Asked him what could cause this and he explained that there likely wasn't anything that I was doing and that it's just one of those parts that can last years or go out in a few hours. Thank goodness for warranty coverage!

I get a red and yellow bar at the top of the screen


this problem has to do with te optics in the tv...not the lamp. I had the same problem, even after replacing the lamp. I called sony & they are replacing the tv with a 2010 Sony Bravia 40'. Free! For a fee of $325 I could have got a 46" or for $725 a 55". I went with the 40". Try working it out with sony. It worked for me and only took a 5 minute phone call. Good Luck

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.

Horizontal (dashed) line across screen


On the KDFE55A20 this sounds like a bad Q-Box. I would get an estimate from a Sony authorized servicer as this part may be quite expensive. On the 55A10 model this may be the B-Block and is also quite expensive. Getting an on-sit estimate would be the first step I suggest. Again go with an authorized Sony servicer. Call Sony or go to Sony.com for customer service. Good Luck
