Anyone know where you can find one of these sets brand new?
post #3332 of 3429
why Are people resetting their Sony? the owners here and on the nx929 thread or whatever the model is, is it related to the set turning off for no reason then turning itself back on 4 seconds later?

mine does that once in a while...not sure if it is a flaw or if it is doing something on purpose

The Sony receiver I have has only 1 HDMI port. I takes everything from the TV (HDMI 1) on an Audio Return Channel :/

Anyone successfully connected their laptop and TV together via WiDi? The TV always reports "There are no items to display." Perhaps I'm not sharing content from my laptop properly. Any advice?

Thanks,

Good Morning All,

I had an unfortunate event with my KDL-60NX720 that I bought as an open box floor item from aafes. When I bought the tv, it had a slight nick in the bottom left of the glass. Thought nothing of it, bought the extended waranty etc etc etc. Last week I moved and I opted to move this tv along with one of my larger tv's to my new home. Even after wrapping it well with furniture pads and careful driving, I went to install the tv last night and found that I have three spider lines going from the bottom left (where it was nicked) to the top of the screen. They are so light that even turning on the tv, you really have to look for them, but I know where they are and it will drive me nuts. I am almost certain that no damage was done to the LED panel.

So the question I have is.. Does anyone know if that glass is fused to the LED panel and if it isn't, does anyone know if the glass is easily replaced. It looks as if the glass is held on by the screws around the back, but I didn't explore that last night since I felt like hurling when I found the damage.

Thanks for your input!

Marc

Geeksquad just left and the bad news is the set is gone. He said that would have to replace entire panel (which is no longer available) since the T-con board is no longer available for this set.
post #3341 of 3429
Yeah, I got the update yesterday.

Sony is so slow updating their website with the changes. frown.gif

Oh well, guess all we can do is wait.

The front gorilla glass can be replaced, it's just glued at the edges, nothing complicated.

Thanks for the info. How would I go about obtaining that glass. Is that something that has to go through a Sony dealer??

The new FW version hit the european market today: PKG4.017EUA - according to Sony, "This software includes improvements for the performance and stability of the Internet TV features." I'd also like to know more of the details for this upgrade? Thanks.

I'm able to view photos and videos off my computer in another room via the wifi router. It's a really cool feature.
post #3346 of 3429
Must be a bug in the software.

The proximity sensor warning goes off on this with nobody even in the room. I'd think I have a ghost in the house but I have the friggin proximity sensor turned off in the options. I guess the ghost is in the machine. mad.gif
post #3347 of 3429
mine is turned off and has shut itself off several times

it isnt called that though, it is called something else
post #3348 of 3429
You are not alone, mine also turns itself off and back on. Usually happens within the 1st 5 minutes of the set being turned on.
post #3349 of 3429
I think that turning off and on is a software update happening. What happens to me is different. I start hearing beeping coming from the family room. I go in there and it's the friggin TV with the proximity sensor thing but I have that turned off in the options. Am I the only one having this issue?

I have had this happen once or twice in the last year. I had the set on and left the room. When I came back the proximity sensor was activated. It is not a regular occurrence, but I have also seen this happen.

Do you also have that proximity feature turned OFF in the options?

My dad has a 60NX720. He just called me to say the TV turned itself off and on about 3 times, then the last time it stayed off. Could it be a software update? Don't you have to tell the TV you want to do the update? Is something failing?
post #3354 of 3429
It has activated on its own on my set also!eek.gif
post #3355 of 3429
I haven't had this issue happen to me yet. I also haven't upgraded to the latest firmware.
post #3356 of 3429
I bought my 60nx720 last December and last week had to unplug the component cable. The metal caps and wires came off of the video/component adapter as I unplugged the cable. I contacted Sony but they refused to replace the adapter because it was 6 days out if warranty. I have to buy one and a Google search reveals nothing. Where can I buy one of these?
post #3357 of 3429
so i am set to receive a replacement model for the nx720 because the gorilla glass was seperating from the panel....they could not tell me what model i would be getting but they did say it would be comparable or better than the nx720 but would they really send me a hx850 as it is the next closest model with gorilla glass?
post #3358 of 3429
I did the hard reset and the problem random on-off stooped.
post #3359 of 3429
Question Guys: My 55 NX720 started buzzing loudly. Had a tech out, he changed out power boards and it still buzzes. He wrote his report (that said it buzzes loudly) and sent it back to Sony. I get a call from Sony saying "The TV is operating normally". I DON'T THINK SO. I own other Sony LEDs and they don't Buzz at all!

I have an open reference number. Who can I call to escalate this issue to at Sony? Is there an advanced service team that speaks English and cN actually make decisions? I am dealing with super low level people.

Or do I spam their Twitter and Facebook pages? Thanks for any help you can provide!
post #3360 of 3429
Is your buzzing thru the speakers or from internals??
