WEGA 36" : Screen is low contrast and green

Hi, Our seven-year-old Sony Wega recently started having problems. Typical behavior on power-up is a black screen for 5-10 minutes, followed by flickering (the screen turning off and on every two to three seconds). As time went on, the flickering went on for a longer period. Now the screen cycles off and on during any scenes with high brightness. At the same time, the color balance has gone way out of whack. The image is now green monochrome and very low contrast. The blacks are medium green. I went into the service menu to see if any adjustments could be made, but attempts to change the red and blue settings did very little. Any thoughts? Thanks, Dave

Sorry to say, it sounds like a bad picture tube, But could be also the capacitor that filters the screen voltage on the crt drivers. In all my years though, your complaint has been the picture tube. Good Luck.

Check the options of contrast or tint, if your adjust them to your preferences then maybe it will work, or maybe it is just old. Glad if I helped.

Picture will come on and then go off after a couple minutes

This usually means the Lamp is failing. Replacing the Lamp usually fixes it. I would only use a Sony Replacement.
You can order one from Sony at 1800-222-SONY or you may be able to pick one up from a local Sony Retailer.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,

5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

Sony 36 Wega XBR Flat Screen - sudden death.

This could be a scan amplifier failure, and there is a loss of high voltage to the CRT. Part of the power supply may have also failed. In these sets, if the CRT emission goes low in emission, or the CRT goes defective, the bias supply to the CRT will go in to protect.

An experienced TV service tech can troubleshoot the set and give you an estimate for service. Considering the age of the set, the cost of service may not be worth it.
