Yesterday, my Sony screen started to show a bright Fushia Pink color on the entire screen. Called tech support and they suggested it needed servicing and red LED light is blinking. Has anybody encountered this issue with their Sony or tv?
The HD image is not functional and the colors (e.g. red) tend to bleed. Is it time to shop for a new TV?
Help PLEASE - ASAP.
I had mine sent in for repairs and it was picture tube/screen and it would have needed replacement for a cost of 750, per BestBuy, and it is sitting in the store waiting to be picked up. I had already purchased a replacement TV, a Samsung LCD 40" that I love. Good luck.

Hello. When a backlit LCD screen becomes pink or red in color (I've seen other color variations too), it is the backlight lamp itself. A fault it the bulb causes the wave length of light that we see to change, and our eyes perceive the change as a change in color. Replace the backlamp or have a reputable tech service it for you. :)
This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets. Its called a convergence failure. Here are some common symptoms.
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around objects on the screen.
You can see some example photos and find a solution here on Fixya.
A pink or red screen which may gradually turn back to it's appropriate color indicates the lcd is going out. It could last quite some time in tht condition, but it's going. replacement isn't too bad though.
