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.)
