I have a 60" SXRD Oct '05 mfd about two weeks now and after warm up, no real complaints. Yesterday I got home early and decided to put my Aria disc in to just view the calibrations of the set.
When the set is first powered up there is a streak of a light blue (purplish) running diagonally from 11 o'clock to 4 o'clock position about 15" wide or so and a mild green cast at the 7-8 o'clock position, but 90% of this disappiates after about 30-40 minutes and a blank gray screen looks rather uniform.
Running through chapter 7 of the Aria disc showed the set had excellent convergence and geometry calibration and all the solid colored screens showed no discoloration.
The total white screen was very uniform with just a very slight purple haze at the 11 o'clock position, but I had to look for it.
Now is the strange part...
I had moved my old 35" CRT TV out of the way against the wall to my left and forward of my couch by 2 feet or so. I had reach over to my left to grab the sony remote and on the CRT's face I viewed the new sony's reflection...it had
purple and green discoloration where it is when the set is first turned on !!!
I looked back at the sony and saw none of these splotches!!! ???
I put cable back on to HD programming and the picture was uniform with no obvious discolorations , but looked back at the CRT's reflection of the sony and there were splotches present. !!!??
That night I watched the program 'LOST' and when a beach scene was displayed the sand was uniform, no discoloration at all (beautiful picture)
but the CRT's sony reflection shows slpotches.
My wife pointed out to me that it was also discolored in the glass table's reflection that sits just in front of the couch.
Can anyone explain what is going on here?
