Thanks for the quick answer, i wasn't expecting a response until next week. The E6 or the C6 is what I was looking into.


Thanks

Friend is E6's image difference is much better as pointed out in marketing? Or not much has changed compared to 65x900a. Thank you

For HD, if you like inky blacks and infinite contrast, why yes, the image is much better. if you watch any UHD, the 65x900a doesn't do HDR or WCG, so that's a major upgrade over the 65x900a (if you buy movies using the fmp x1 or x10 then maybe you get some WCG, but not HDR).

Over the last 6 months I've noticed a separation in the upper right hand corner of my screen around half an inch or so, originally one and over time developed in two areas. Ironically I had a problem with this set years back and had it replaced by Sony and bought a 4 year Warranty at the time that should have expired this Dec., but read what the Sony rep. writes:

Thank you for contacting Sony. You original TV XBR65X900A was purchased in 5/7/2013 and the 4 year Service Plan for TVs was purchased in 12/14/2013. Your original TV was replaced with the same model XBR65X900A in 12/26/2013 which you received 1/13/2014 and for which the TV has a 2 years warranty instead of only 1 year or the remainder of the original warranty. Please be advised that the 4 year Service Plan for TVs runs in concurrent with warranty of the original TV. It started from the date of the purchase of the original unit. The Service plan was transferred to your replacement TV but that does not mean that coverage of the service plan will also move. It will just continue the coverage from the original TV to the replacement TV even if that has a 2 years warranty so technically, the service plan expired on 5/7/2017 which put the unit already put of the manufactures warranty and out of the Service Plan. Thank you.

So when they replaced the defective unit on 12/13 and I bought a 4 year warranty at that time to cover the new set on 12/13 but didn't actually receive that set until 1/14 they don't honor the warranty for that set but post date it back to the original set that was defective. Of course when they recommend you buy the warranty for $299 they don't mention that it will already be technically 8 months expired when you get the set. How awful is that customer service!!!

65/900A - My First Little Problem

The oldest of my Sony 4K sets (65X900A) hit a glitch last night. The screen is now divided in two, by a perfectly centered horizontal effect. The bottom half of the entire panel is slightly darker than the top half. The 50 yard line runs from the dead center of the tweeters on each side of the television. More apparent on solid colors, like reds and blues, and most noticeable during darker scenes.

I tried unplugging, then full reset (wow there were a lot of settings to change back) but it's still happening.

The service company for the 5+1 extended warranty is due to call me this week for an in-home claim.

From what I recall, there are IC boards for the top and bottom half of the panel.

The TV is just 4 years old, June 2013, with the X-1 player's HDMI board being installed on July 15, 2013. (Just thinking, I hope the fact that the TV was "modified" doesn't create a problem with this third party service company.)

Regards all.

My 900A Must Not Want to Leave Home

Naturally, this morning, after 7 days of exhibiting this problem (the bottom half of the screen is darker than the top half, separated by a distinct line) that issue is gone.

Service company was waiting for me to call to schedule the appointment to look at the set, but at the moment, that isn't going to happen.

I have a feeling this half-and-half brightness will crop up again. Rarely do these things heal themselves.

I've been struggling with getting my XBR65x900a to work w/ my Roku 4.

My TV has input 4 next to 1 and 3. So I have HDCP 2.2, and the Roku 4 confirms that. I can get the Roku to output 4k @ 60hz, but I can't get it to output 10bit.

Looking for any tips on getting it to work properly.
