Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Picture getting dimmer (?)

I have a 3-year old Grand Wega (KDF-50WE655) and the picture, while still watchable, seems to have gotten noticeably dimmer lately. I have also noticed that the picture is brighter when the TV initially turns on, then gets noticeably dimmer after about 2-3 minutes. It's watchable, but the TV is already set at max brightness. Is it basically new bulb-time? Thanks!
