But it's so far out of warranty and even beyond the usual 5 year mark that I doubt the maker will do more than offer a coupon of some dollars off a new set.
Be sure to call this in since I don't see the Sony Ambassador show up often.
Dear Customer Service
I have the Sony Model # KDL52XBR6 / Serial #8028236 / manufacture date 10/2008 and my screen has been turning white starting in the upper corners and drooping down in the center and has been getting worse over the past several months. I have taken the TV to a repair shop and the technician said the panel was bad and nothing they could do. He gave me a phone # for Sony and said there was a recall for the forty inch TV's but was not sure about mine. My wife and i paid over $1200 for this TV five years ago and are hoping this is not all she wrote for us. We also have the 40 inch Bravia and love it.
Please help us resolve this and fix our TV.
