[quote=Greendale;11269313]Well, I bought my 50in KDS-50A2000 last November and I am starting to get my first green stain. My factory 1yr warranty runs out November 30th and I have been planning on extending my warranty a couple of years through Sonystyle. The stain is very small but it is starting to bother me.
So, what options do I have?[/QUOTE/]
I bought the same TV in September last year. For a few months now I started to see a green stain just right of center. It was oval in shape and almost reached top to bottom.
It was noticeable the most when the TV was first turned on, an on a light back ground. Even after warm up I could still see it. If the stain would have never got any worse, I could have lived with it. But how was I to know?
I call Sony and the tech had me go to the white balance and try to tune out the green bias. Didn't work. Then he gave me the number to the local Sony warrenty dealer.
I ended up sending an email with a few pictures. The tech contacted Sony and they decided that I needed an optical block.
Believe it or not, the next day he calls and ask if I am going to be home, he was 15 minutes away. I was, and he was in and out in less than an hour and the green stain/blob is gone! The TV has never looked better! Makes me wonder if the new optical block is more advanced than the old.
What ever evil Sony has done, I have to believe they are trying harder now. Thanks Sony!
Don't delay, call Sony and tell them your problem. Get it fixed now.
Look, you bought the TV in good faith, Sony needs to make it right for you. Keep us posted.
