Question about Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television

TV Color Distortion

Dear TV Experts:

Hi, I have a Sony FWD-50PX2 TV that has distorted colors. The colors are not normal, but there are colors. I can tell some of the warm colors are missing. The images are more grainy. The TV is NOT black and white. All the connections are fine -- cable, DVD, audio sound system, etc. I have tried all different display options on the menu.

Please help! Is there something broken inside the TV?

Thank you,
Sherry Lee

Sony projection TV Color distortion

check your lamp, this tends to happen when the lamps start to fail, the best indication is lack of detail in bright ares. turn the brightness down, if the detail returns at low level then this confirms lamp failure.

Color distortion

Move any speakers or electrical devices away from the set. It could also be anything electronic or magnetic. Anything near the set that generates a magnetic or electromagnetic field could be causing the distortion.
