Wink Sheldons hands???

Watched some of Big Bang last night (rerun) and noticed Sheldon's hands were pink but Leonard's & Howard's hands were normal - bet that dude has a special lotion applied. He needs to stop that ****!!! LOL

Just sayin' dudes!!

Well, I've had my 70R550A for about a year now, and I am growing extremely displeased with it.. The "ghosting" seems to be getting worse.. In the middle of my screen it's starting to look like a wavy mesh or something.. I bought an extended warranty with it so I may try for a replacement of some sort..

Is it possible for ghosting or whatever this wavy bubbly look is to get worse over time? These Sony series aren't very good are they?

Add to this I am starting to see bright dots on a white background.. Which is odd, if these are stuck pixels wouldn't they show on a black background. They only seem visible mostly on brighter backgrounds.. And there are a few appearing too... Bottom hemisphere.. Man this TV is going downhill..

I am approaching 1 year with the 60" version - no issues except the occasional clouding which seems to improve with cleaning with microfiber towell.
Can't wait!!!

Question screen artifacts

Now I have a consistent screen artifact - a football shaped lighter area with two vertical darker bars with widening near the bottom. Persistent with every input. I minimized the effect by setting eco to max and lowering brightness levels. Knowing it is there I see it all the time but by trying not to look for it I can tone it out. Weird!!

Clouding comes and goes and not a significant issue at the moment. I read the manual and it mentions the clouding early on.

Wonder what the future holds for this set but if I can get 7 years use I'll be happy.

Can you take a picture of it with eco off (etc.)? It sounds a little like what happens when the panel contacts have been affected.

Just out of curiosity: Did you spray any liquid directly on the screen?

Send this to all your friends! When will this stupidity end? So hysterical: Vertical Video Syndrome --- a PSA.
