Warmer/redder at top during credits and "Color temp flash" issue
Hi. I recently bought a lightly used 8000u, and it seemed to be in great shape externally, good image, no convergence issue when looking at a pattern, great picture, no blobs, clean, etc. However, I have noticed something with the color that is kind of bizarre. There are two issues, that I think are related:
1) There is a red shift of color either at the top or the bottom (it just depends what is on screen). It is particularly noticeable when there are white end credits rolling up the screen. The top will often be a red-tinged white (warm) and the bottom more of a white-blue (cool). Sometimes it is reversed oddly enough.
2) Also, every so often, the color on most of the screen will sort-of do a quick switch from warm to cold (or vice-versa) ... like a brief flash of green-tone in faces, etc. It doesn't last long and doesn't happen often, but often enough to become really annoying, because then it seems like that's all you can think about. It does seem to happen less when I turn off the auto-iris, but it still happens.
I used to have the flicker/flash issue with me AE900u, and while this is not exactly the same, it is very reminiscent of that issue, which I had hoped I would finally be free of at this point.
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
