Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV

Yellow brush marking on Screen

My Father has a Sony rear projection TV KDF-60x5955. It is about 2 years old and on the top right side of the screen is a yellow mark. It looks like someone took a yellow paint brush and marked the screen in an area about 1" x .5". What is going on? I shut the TV off for a day. No change. It had been like this for about 3 months with no change. Can you help me? Otherwise the color on the TV is great. Robert

Your problem is with the blue color,maybe some dirt is sitting on the face of the blue crt and is being projected bigger to the screen,you should try cleaning the face of all 3 tubes,if you familiar with tv service this should help,be careful when removing the back and make sure the set is unplug when you do the cleaning.Let us know how it goes.

Blue patch on right side of screen. strange dark pattern also.also has lots of yellow on the otherside of screen tv is about 5 years old.

If it looks like a cloud of colour, the optical block needs replacing. It is the heart of the LCD. We had ours replaced twice, under warranty.

DEVOLPING YELLOW LINE ON SCREEN

The yellowing of Sony’s KDF-60WF655 rear projection is a problem with the SXRD optical engine. This turned out to be a big problem on many of the SXRD TV's. Sony actually had a class action lawsuit that covered the optical engine for 5 years. My unit was replaced in June of last year (2009) about 1 month before the coverage ended. My unit had a bad yellow streak on the right hand side. Sony no longer covers the cost of replacement, as the class action suit has now expired. Sorry for the bad news. Its not clear if a new optical engine will suffer the same fate after a few years. Sony’s rear projection TV's are amazing and the picture rivals many of today’s LCD's and Plasma's. Any authorized Sony Tv repair shop will no exactly your problem and will be able to give you a fixed price to repair.
Hope this helps

Yellow-green spot in center of screen

Defective light engine. Contact Sony support. They warrantied a lot of these sets even after the warranty had expired because of so many going bad after 3-4 yrs. Have the complete model and serial number ready when you call them.
