Multi color stripes on 60 inch sony wega, no picture
When I turned to tv on there was sound but no picture. The entire screen is very thin multi color verticle stripes. The tv is a rear projection 60 inch Sony Wega. It's a couple of years old. The screen does not change even when I switch input to DVDs.

some pro's and contra's...
Trinitron tubes are the best ever built picture tubes - long life, best contrast and sharpness, brilliant colors, etc thou u never get with any modern lcd screen. otherwise the big form factor is uncompareable with todays thin screens. also the brand itself and in your case the wega model is a name on its own high standard. anyway i would recommend you to let your tv check by a local service cause it sounds like a electronical problem - let them tell you how much aproximately fixing will count - before they repair it - so you still can decide is it worth or not. hope to helped a bit.
How old is the tv? For the problem like this with the Sony Wega, you can do a power reset. Power off the TV and unplug the power cord from the electrical
socket. Wait for like 1 minute, plug it back then turn it on.
doesn't work, then your Digital Mirror Device on the tv failed. You can call sony customer service at 1800 222 7669 to verify this hardware problem.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
after changing the lamp, I still had the same problem as you. I contacted sony and they offered me a brand new 40 inch bravia flat screen tv replacement...at no cost! If I chose a 46" or 55" there would be a charge between $325
It sounds like to me you have a bad Optical Block. It is a expensive repair and you may want to call Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if the would assist you in repairs. Due to the age of it, they would probably only cover a partial amount of the repair.
Hope this helps,
I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
