BTW my vertical center is slightly off, even with maximum V_CENT adjusted in the service manual. Any other way to lower the picture? It was like this before I just didn't bother with it. Now that a perfect OB is in I want to make it perfect.

I have been away from the forums since I got my Plasma in 2012. Amazingly I still miss my 70 inch XBR2, that TV was awesome (when it worked) and if you're not into 3D I think they are worth repairing. (I even started looking for one again, the plasma just did not do it for me.)

If you're contemplating repairing your XBR OB go for it (but go with Robert M. for the repair).

not mine!

last night while watching TV we heard a loud POP and the tV went out. This is the original bulb from 2004-2005 (I think). Glad I bought a spare! tossed it in and back in business

no never.....I think Ive said it before in this post sometime back also. The message has been on for at least 4 years saying "bulb life is near its end". This TV has been one of my best purchases ever.....10 years

Only reason it was a best purchase for me was I got to use it for 3 years (although 6 OB replacements) and Sony ended up refunding me Full Purchase Price, Shipping Charges and Extended Warranty Cost.
