Question about Sony KDF-42WE655 Television

Blue streaks and faint blue blotches on screen

The original projection lamp went out. Prior to its going out I noticed some blue lines/streaks/blotches starting to appear on the screen. I replaced the lamp; picture is okay except there are blue lines at the bottom of the screen and faint blue blotches on the screen in various places. I tried adjusting the hue, color, picture, etc, but to no avail.The blue blotches appear mostly when the background color on the screen is a lighter color.

Hitatchi 52" rear projection TV has blue spot in middle of screen


Hello :
I suggest u retrace you the steps u took to replace your lamp make sure no foriegn objects got on the prism where the light shines throung the optics engine, if you remove the lamp compartment througly. If you had a perfect picture prior to replacing the lamp, then retracing your steps you might find something that does not belone. One final note: Did you purchase the right lamp 120watts anything higher than this wattage could damage your optics engine. I suggest never vacuuming the compartment because particals fly around from the suction and could get on the glass of the color wheel asembly.

Blue spots on the screen.


Assuming that an alignment tool is not your problem, if the blue spots are regularly arranged in rows and
columns, I would have to say that the blue filter of your three tube (red blue green) array needs service.

Burn-ins?


It sounds like your light engine is on it way out. I would have this verified by a service center. Very costly to replace. They will probably try a new lamp first.
