Discoloration on Sony LCD Rear Projection TV

by Michael on November 15, 2009 · 3 comments

When it rains it pours… A few weeks after having our 36 inch Sony CRT TV refuse to power on (we’ve since decided to replace it), we’re having discoloration issues with our 46 inch Sony LCD rear projection TV.


In terms of symptoms, the top inch inch or so of the screen is discolored with a yellow/red/pink tint. While we’re overdue for a bulb change, I don’t think that’s the band of discoloration here. Rather, it seems that the optical block is going bad.

The good news is that Sony has extended the warranty on this issue through June 20, 2010. The extended warranty covers both parts and labor, so we should be able to get the optical block replaced for free.

For reference, our TV is a Sony model KDF-46E2000. We also have a 42 inch Sony LCD rear projection TV (model KDF-E42A10) in the house. While ours hasn’t had any problems (yet), this model is apparently part of a class action lawsuit.

Well, I just replaced my bulb and I am having the same problem, but it seems that I waited too long for the warranty. So what do I do now? How much will this cost to fix. My Tv is a Sony KDF-55E2000.

I have a Sony Wega model number KDF60XS955. The power has gone out on my TV and my optical block is going out and my warranty has been terminated. What can I do? Is this model number under lawsuit?
