Can anyone tell me the size of the machine screws for the back of the VESA holes? M4? M5? M6?

Thanks WhiteSands - I think I've got Motionflow set to 'Standard' now, but I'll double-check when I get home.

I went with full motion on my mount. The slight additional cost was worth it to me for the flexibility.

In photography it's called vignetting and was happening on some of sets that first came out in last october and november. Many chose to use their TV's and the problem cleared up as heat when through the panel over a few months of TV viewing.
The manually done frozen cloth treatments gets rid of about 90% of the vignetting. Then playing the set will clear up the rest. I will post those 4 pictures again here so to see how the vignetting has cleared up on my screen.

click the first picture then the right arrow to see the other three.

Thanks, WS. Actually, I asked how you performed this frozen towel method to your w850a?

For what I read on the XBOX, you wrap the hardware with the towel and let it heat up for 10-15 minutes. Something to do with reheating the solders and make the connections. The exact procedre involves monitoring some lights on the XBOX. They call this the towel trick, not sure about the word "Frozen".

I seem to remember WhiteSands saying something abut putting ice in the towel and working the affected areas. I haven't needed to try it - but I think I remember WhiteSands saying it worked on his. Maybe WhiteSands can explain the procedure again - WhiteSands??? smile.gif

Also here's 2 new pics. The 1st you can't even see the backlight, the 2nd you can see it slightly.


How high do you have the backlight? Mine does the same, but not as bad and I have mine set to 3 since I watch in a dark room

Although your asking ibanezjp, I have my backlight set to max on the Standard and Custom picture-modes. On Vivid I set the backlight to 7. So far I have never seen any light bleed problems on my set.

I rather test my set using a good HD signal source.

Yes the frozen cloth rubbing on the heated sides of the screen clears the problem up. I sent mis3 the instructions I have.

+1 with any normal source playing, I don't have any light bleeding anywhere or even clouding during low lit scenes, even when there is something bright in a dark scene, at least not to the extent of being noticeable.

That sound good, you got a good set and adjusted to where it makes a good picture as this set is known for.

Gee I don''t know, their is just something about this TV with it's great picture and brilliant colors that makes me want to promote it.

Thanks Fairfax-Franko and Steve1971 for enjoying my screen shots and my attention to helping other members with this set. Being retired it keeps me busy and as you know I love new technology and electronics.

Here is another rather nice screen shot from my set.

Gee I guess I was wrong, it's not the triluminos filters but like he say's a polarized film behind the screen could be causing the vignetting. Next time I will remember to use a frozen slab of bacon to do a better job. This video is slightly different than the one on youtube back in last October telling how to rub the screen the same way.

Thanks for the this video information.

Looking around in youtube I found this to be interesting about Sony's fast X-Reality Pro processor engine. You add this to a colorful Triluminos picture and you then got one fantastic TV.

Are you referring to the table top stand? There are for screws on the back that hold it into place

No harm in promoting the 850 WS. The tv like the W900 is one of Sony's very best made so you should be proud of it. I know I am damn proud of my W900 and I tell everyone about it and show it off to friends and family whenever I can. So keep it up and keep the great Pic's coming my friend. smile.gif

Yep I agree. Triluminous, Quantum Dots and X-Reality Pro make an unbeatable combo. To bad Sony made a dumb ass decision to drop Quantum Dot which is "Color IQ" for their 2014 sets and went with their own ideas. mad.gif

Not the stand, but the 2 little wedges at the bottom of the TV that holds the stand. I'd like to know how to remove those.

Do any of you guys with this TV have a uniform screen when solid colors are displayed? Mine is dark around all the edges, and it's apparent when watching all content, but easier to see with a solid colored image. Sony told me I should replace it, but I don't want to waste my time if they will all be like this.

Your full yellow screen shot don't look that bad to me. If you continue to play the set especially using the vivid picture-mode, what your seeing will go way after a few months or would be much improved. After 4 months is should be gone due to the heat in the panel. I recently sent you my frozen cloth treatment. Have you tried it that yet and if so it should has it improved the slight dark sides on your TV screen. I doubt if you swapped the sets if it would look any better with the all yellow screen. Actually it's much easier to fix the present set using the cloth treatment rather then swapping for another set.
