Raffie Quler: Hi Norcal715, I have a problem with the green cast starting to show slowly on all sides of the screen. Does it pay off long-term to repair it or it's better to throw it out when it becomes annoying enough?
Glen Zabriskie: You should be wearing white gloves
WizardsMagic007: I have a Sony KF-42WE610 with blue vertical lines across the entire screen. Do you know what causes that?
Leandro Daniel Cezare: Do you have a polarizer KIT for Sony Kf60we610? Thanks
Tyler: Will this fix also work for the KDS-R70XBR2?
Anita Ajoku: I changed the panel on my TV and now my TV won't turn on. what do I need to do?
Jean-François Vary: Hi norcal715. Thanks your for this video. I have a KDF-60XS955 which I've successfully repaired following your instructions. It's been a 2 years project done in spare time since the tv was in storage at my mother's place. Bought a set of LCD on tri-state module (#LCX043Axxx) and followed your procedure. My TV now works flawlessly! Cheers!
Note : The problem was the blue LCD. Polarizer was in good conditioni.
Tipit0008: I checked your parts store suggestion (Jimmy), but there are no LCD panels like the one you replace in this video. Any idea where else we can get one ???
Karl Farmer: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS, GETTING THE PANELS TO ALIGN BY HAND IS IMPOSSIBLE!! I figured replacing the panels would be easy enough, which it was thanks to the video, but the problem comes when you have to align the panels, which is a near impossible feat unless you have proper equipment. After wasting over 2 hours trying to align them, I called a repair shop and they told me that alignment cannot be done by hand, that you HAVE to have a jig in order to align the panels properly, and that THEY don't even attempt to do it by hand, and they're professionals. Everything is put together and running fine, NO BLUE DOTS, but now all of my colors are misaligned and I have no idea what to do next. The repair shop told me I might have to just send the entire optical drive to Sony since they have the right jig to do the alignment, but I don't even want to know how much that will cost. :(
Richard Farris: I can not access the color adjustment mode on my sony KDF-50we655.I see the word voidio and blue is out of line
Rashid albania: thank you sir , you explane very nicly .
Paul pulliam: Hello Norcal , thanks for the video! I am doing the lcd panel and filter swap on a kdf-60 wf655 and am ready to do the alignment but I cant get the unit to stay powered up. The lamp lights up for 10-15 seconds and then the TV shuts off and repeats this over and over....any idea what could be wrong?...ballast?
m roscoe: to have this procedure done what would you estimate parts and labor, thanks mike
Doug Hensley: Would you know the dimensions of the reflecting mirror on the back of the tv? I have model # KDF-42WE655.
mamma710: BEWARE!!! This guy is just another con artist in disguise with his Mr. Rogers its so simple BS video. He makes it look like its a fifteen minute installation when in fact it's like a three hour install and he leaves out a bunch of crucial instructions that are imperative to successfully installing this part. You can tell just by his little memos that he posts on the screen so now whoever tries to do it themselves they have to keep watching his video so he gets more views and guess what he makes more money and in the meantime suckers like me have a tv all shredded to pieces in my living room that's going right into the trash. My advice have a pro do it.
Bob ONeil: The bulb in the Sony I am repairing is not sealed, but allows air flow to cool the active light element, which unfortunately results in dust debris on the rear reflector. Is it possible to clear this reflector by for example, flushing the reflector with alcohol, applying it from the opening at the top of the bulb, and allowing it to flow out the bottom with the bulb removed. Presumably the alcohol will evaporate, but I don't know if any residuals from the alcohol have a negative effect on the bulb active assemblies. Anyone ever clean the interior of a non-sealed bulb?
Bob ONeil: Excellent video, better than the service manual I have read. I have my set disassembled and ready for the convergence adjustment. When you perform the tapping operation during convergence, what are you specifically tapping? Are you tapping the entire removal optical assembly, or just the replaced LCD panel. It would seem to me that you would need to have the optical block screwed in for this operation to prevent any play in the entire optical block as you make the fine adjustments to the replaced LCD panel. Please advise.
Twilight Sparkle: Traded mine in for a DLP. The inside of DLPs are so simple, parts are readily available (3rd party) and they pull out just like nintendo cartridges :P I attempted a 4k panel, just didn't like it.. DLP was lower res for sure, but the image is so uniform and smooth. I don't think the world was quite ready for Mitsubishi to die...
leorizzosipod: I just had to clean dust off all the lenses and put everything back together. Now my picture has a blue haze. What could I have done wrong? Also, do you know how to enter the service mode so I can reset all the settings?
Paul Schober: When you were replacing the blue polarizer, (that's the problem piece in my TV) you mentioned it was "matched to the red LCD panel, but it's going to work just fine". Do you mean that the polarizers are interchangeable?
