Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV
I replaced the lamp with no problem. Turned on TV and the top has a slightly redish tint evenly displayed across the screen, the middle is fine, then slightly blue on the bottom. I have reseated the lamp just incase it might have been crooked, but same result. I went through the TV menu for some type of calibration, but didn't see one (i hope i'm not blind). Is it the lamp? Is it possibly seated incorrectly? Thanks in advance to any responses.
Dont know if this is the same problem your having or not.

As technology evolves, Sony continually looks to stand behind the reliability of its televisions. It has come to our attention that a very limited number of televisions manufactured between 2003-2005, after a period of time exhibit a stationary scribble / random line pattern on the screen.
