I bought a Sony KDS60A2000 about 2.5 years ago from a neighbor friend that was getting ready to move. Other than having to replace the bulb earlier this year, I've had no problems with the TV and have been very satisfied.
Over Thanksgiving, I started noticing the green hue. No blobs or halo effects, but people started having a strange 'alien' look and the cable box firmware, that was once blue, now looks green and can't be fixed in the TV's setup.
I searched for the green hue problem online and noticed the Class Action lawsuit over the light engine. I also noticed that extended coverage to get the problem fixed ended August 31, 2010 for my model. Since I'm not the original owner, I never knew about the problem until it started 2ish weeks ago.
I feel like I just got slapped in the face with Murphys Law!
Anyone have anything remotely similar, ideas, suggestions before I get on the phone and start crying to Sony support?
Sorry to bump an old thread..but I'm sitting here thinking, "You have GOT to be kidding!..August 31, 2010!" I doubt my wife will accept shelling out $1000 to get the TV fixed as her Christmas present this year.
