O.K. Sony one Wega repair down only 175,000 more defect Optical Blocks left to go. It is odd that Sony jumped through hoops for you while they have turned a deaf ear to every other Wega owner. You have to wonder why you, when they are fighting 3 class action lawsuit on the same part in order not to replace them and paid $1.6 million in one law firms legal fees. Do you have some secret number that the rest of us Sony owners have missed? As someone who has two 55" Defective Sony Wega sets, I wonder why Sony loves you more?
My KDS-55A2000 SXRD developed a yellow cast to all pictures. Purchased in 2006 I also purchased an extended warranty through Mac Camera. I contacted Mac Camera and described the problem. They sent me to Sony Support. After describing the problem they surmised it as an optical block problem. The tech also said that Sony had extended its warranty on this device.
I got a phone call a few days later from a Sony repair center to verify the problem. They ordered the part and it will be replaced this week.
My experience? No hassle. My extended warranty is not used as Sony is covering the repair.
