Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDP-65XBR2 65" Rear Projection Television
Hi- I have a SONY KDP 65XBR2 TV - a wonderful unit that I have had for about 4 years. About 6 months ago, it started to display curved diagonal lines - very visible in dark scenes, not at all in bright ones. The it started to radomly flash bright grren - sometimes this was followed by the TV shutting down - we would either have to turn it back on or, more and more often - unplug it and plug it in again. Although this has not happened for a few days, thelines are still there. Someone told me that the green gun is probably going. The problem is, I live in NYC - no one will servive it here - the want totake it to the shop - which costs $175 just to come and get it. We were given ablu ray player for Xmas - the SOny of course has no HDMI input. We have limited $$ to spend, and, as we see it, have three options. 1. Get it fixed 2. Try to sell it and buy a new TV with HDMI inputs 3. Donate it to a charity and take a tax write-off of $2000 or so. The new HD TV we were thinking of was the Toshiba 65HM167 65" DLP Projection TV - not as good as the Sony we know - but we aren't as solvent as we were in 2002. Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks! Carl ([email protected])
I would guess your problem is more likely the green drive bd (the circuit bd mounted to the neck of the green tube) it might be the tube but it doesn't have to be and I have seen many drive problems on sonys. I think the usually call it the CG board if you want to locate it and put it on it probably is relatively inexpensive. By the way my opinion for what it is worth the Toshiba is much better than the Sony.
