Hello everyone - I am new owner of KDS-55A2000. The set has about 11.500 hours and partial yellow tint, so I am going to change blue panel in near future + cleaning. For now I changed blue gain in service menu to 190 and yellow is almost invisible in custom video mode.

My eyes can't stand plasma or LCD TV's so that is my only option to have big monitor for gaming and casual watching of video (except mine Epson EH-TW5200 projector for real movie experience ). Great TV for small money!

not sure what "no price talk" means in forum title. my kds-60A2000 is dying and i dont want to fool around with repairs. hard to move on for a hoarder like me, but....

does anybody have a good idea what to do with a set they are not going to keep? image is not yellow or blobby, just washed out and weird. all else (and cosmetically) is good. maybe there's a market for parts? it's not quite big enough to turn it into a secret door to a safe room.

any ideas appreciated, thx, kyle

The set must be cleaned periodically inside as stated in user manual. Remove front panel (pictures in service manual) and clean mirror, projector lens and fresnel lens. It's rather easy but some time consumable process. I made it lately in my KDS 55A2000 which had blurred picture.
After cleaning looks like new.

I'm about to install a new Philips lamp in my 50A2000. This TV is on its third optical block, and has slight green blob issues on this OB as well.

Every time I turn on my KDS-55a2000 it clicks on like getting power, then I hear a grinding noise near the lamp area. Power light flashes green and it grinds 3 different times then the lamp light blinks red. The lamp is new and looks fine. Not sure what the issue is here but I would love to fix it eventually. Could be ballast or something strange. All fans are running.Anyone run into this problem? Thanks for any advice.

New Bulb 2015

Anyone have a line on new Phillips bulbs for these sets? I think this will be the fourth bulb in the set since 2005, but would like an OEM bulb from a reliable source. Other than that, it is plugging along... Also could use a new remote, but am only finding used ones out there...Thanks for any help.

Should I get go for an upgrade?

Bought my kds60a2000 new. Except for one bulb change early on, this TV has been and still is perfect. Never misses a beat. But, getting restless for an upgrade. Have a Sony sound bar and Bluray so want to stay with Sony. Do not want a 4k yet as I just don't think there is enough content out there but could get one if pic is that much better.
What about the KDL70w850? Would the picture be that much of an improvement or should I wait a couple of years for 4k?

My 60-A2000 finally succumbed to optical block failure this morning and I had replaced the original bulb not too long ago to the tune of a few hundred bucks. Is Sony still offering discounts on replacement HDTV sets?

It's worth a shot, but I think you're about 3 years too late. Considering the pro-rated depreciation that they use, even if you still can get a discount, it won't be much.

FWIW, back when Sony replaced my set, years ago, they sent me a new 55" LCD for $200 delivered. Glad mine failed when it did.

The really creepy thing is that the other day, I had visited Best Buy and I was talking to a Magnolia AV salesman about getting a new TV soon because I had an old SXRD set. It worked perfectly fine then. Now, not so much. I guess the universe listens....

Okay, now my unit is back to normal. I don't know what happened, but the picture is as it should be right now.

Many places are claiming to sell the OEM bulb, but it isn't being manufactured any more and could never be directly ordered from Philips, so far as I know. Only the Osram/Sylvania bulbs are available apart from whatever OEM bulbs were stockpiled while the original Philips bulb was manufactured.
