DAMN YoungHeat! Your setup is damn impressive if I may say so! Nice and clean. And yes the W850A along with its little brother the W900A is two of the best tv's ever made by Sony still today. In fact I would take both tv's over todays hyped up sets. But thats just me.

I couldn't agree more steve1971.......I have owned my amazing 65W850A almost two years now. It has been an outstanding set!

Poking around craigslist a few days ago, I spied a lightly used 55W900A for sale in Denver.....from a smoke free, pet free home! .... Bazinga!!
I brought it home last night.........it now resides in my bedroom! :-)

First impression is...... I believe it has an image that is even more spectacular than our beloved W850A's....................score!!

Steve 1971-
As a 65W850A owner and forum member, I have had excellent results on that set with the VERY popular settings created and often shared by long standing forum member "WhiteSands"......😎

Do you know if these settings are also good for the 55W900A? Or are there other settings you can recommend for the W900A?

To be honest I dont know if WhiteSands settings would work on the W9 due to the fact that the panels used in the 2 tv's are slightly different. Such as the W9 uses a black panel and QD's and the W850A does not. But you could certainly try them, it wouldnt hurt. The settings I use on my W9 are the ones Tom Norton over at SoundAndVision.com used when he reviewed the W9. I used his settings along with a few tweaks of my own. I had a pro Calibrator look at my set and he said not to touch the settings I have dialed in because those are the settings he would have used as well. But give WS's settings a try and see if you like it because as I said before it wouldnt hurt. If you dont like those settings then try Tom Nortons because he's pretty much spot on.

I have had my 65W850A from November 1, 2014, and everything was fine until a few days ago. Unfortunately, the screen appeared the vertical red dotted line. I am very sad, the set was excellent. Does anyone know if this can be repaired or the set must be replaced?

Sadly that looks to be a panel issue and if thats the case its unfixable. Do you have a warranty on it? If so give Sony a call ASAP!

I don't know Pero77. That could be a issue with the TFT board. (which usually causes a distorted picture) The TFT not that big of board located in the upper center looking in the back of the set. I think this is the board that feeds the picture to the front panel.

This could also be a ribbon cable with one pin not making good contact to the display screen. I would hope for a easy fix as it's major if the panel is the culprit and would need replacing.

You might look for a local Sony Certified Shop should know the fix right off. If not the shop or tech can call a top-tier Sony Tech for advice. You can also call Sony and ask what local shop to use in your area that's Sony approved.

Is it any easy way to enter text from YouZtube or Netflix?

I bought a wireless keyboard (Logitech K400 Plus) and it did not work with this TV.

I tried to enable Bluetooth and paired with my iPad, no luck.

Hi,

First Sorry for my english, but i'm not a native speaker, but i try my best.

Why i write you all:

We move to our new house at march and i was able to find a lightly used w850 in 65" as replacement for my good old Panasonic TX-P50GT30 in the Livingroom.

I choosed this one, because it should be one of the best "Plasma Replacement TVs" made by Sony (After the W900).

Now i searched for the best Settings an found a lot of posts here.

So i would like to ask, if someone could send me the legendary Settings from WhiteSands?

I would be very pleased about that.

Unfortunately i'm not able to write WhiteSands directly, because i haven't 15 Posts yet.

Greetings
Robert
