Also posted in the "Official Owner's" thread:
My 60XBR2 has recently developed color problems that I can't seem to fix. This is happening not long after installing my second lamp, and it seems that a lot of owners are experiencing Optical Block problems beginning around lamp replacement.
The basic problem is that quite a bit (but not all) program material on all inputs in use looks golden or yellow. What's curious is that it doesn't seem to be consistent - there seems to be movies and scenes that seem to look exactly as they should, but maybe that's just an illusion. I would think that a problem with the optical block would affect everything all the time, but perhaps color issues caused by the OB is not linear...?
The basic question that I have is this: how do I know, or how can I test to make sure the Optical Block is going bad? Is there definitive method to determine this?
Thanks for any help!
