Question about Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Projection HDTV

Screen has yellow in background

About 3 weeks ago a yellow rainbow appeared on the screen in the background. Its most noticable when the picture on the TV is light , daylight vs night. It had now spread so the it covers more than half of the screen. It is there on all channels and on CDs. Called Sony but TV one month out of warranty. It seems to me such an expensive TV should not be having this problem.

Um... this sounds like it could be the optical block inside the unit. sony actually has a class action law suit against them for this problem u can view here: http://esupport.sony.com/sxrdsettlement ...
this same thing happend to our TV and we have an extended warranty so the guy came out to repair at no cost to us. depending on the purchase date of your tv, you may be covered in the suit as well, and you can be reimbursed for any expense to repair the issue... you've likely already solved this problem, but for anyone else, i hope this is helpful.

Two possibilitys here: Either the screen drivers are going bad or there is a problem with the decoder board. Testing the decoder board is only replacing it. You can take a towel and gently apply pressure around the edges of the screen and if it dissappears for even a split second, theres something wrong with the screen itself. Let us know :-)

it you have a repair skills you need to open the TV and make sure all the ribon connectors around the circuit boards are proper connected
and if all seems to be ok, the DG board will need to be replaced.

If you dont have any repair skills I would recommend you to take you TV to a repair shop since this is complex repair

Video distortion

You need to take your tv in and have the picture deflector re-aligned.  This doesn't cost much, My dad had to do that to his a few months ago and it cost 30 bucks.

Red spot on LCD

Hi,
1) That red spot means that a pixel is stuck, actually it's very common on LCDs.
2 and 3) It usually occurs for a manufacturing issue.
4) The most of the time it doesn't mean that the whole screen is going to fail, but in my case I would take advantage of the warranty if the laptop is brand new and the warranty is still there.
Good Luck!!!

Blue Vertical Line

It is sounding like when the laptop is turned on and heats up a bit, the line appears? Sounds like one of the panels is going bad or atleast has developed a problem. below are some tricks you can try to lessen the annoyance of the line. Dual-Scan STN displays are composed of 2 panels behind a single protective panel or screen. Because you are looking through the protective screen the display appears to be one large panel even though it is not. There is a physical separation line (gap) at the point where the two panels meet. When the computer is on and being viewed it is not unusual to see the visible separation line with the Dual-Scan STN displays. The line, actually the fine gap between the display panels, appears because the color and light pixels cannot run along the very outside edges of the panels. This line (gap) between the panels can be seen as a fine gray line and is most noticeable when viewing on a screen with a white or light background. Note the line may not be as noticeable when the screen is displaying certain colors or darker backgrounds. SUGGESTIONS: It is not possible to completely eliminate the line but there are some things you can try to reduce it's visibility. 1) Lower the display brightness/contrast. The brighter the backlight the more noticeable the line. 2) Use Wallpapers and Screen savers that use darker colors. 3) In the Control Panel/Display applet under appearance try different combinations of color schemes for your Window and Background choice Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
