RE: Faulty KDL55HX923

well there's a bunch of us out here with about £3K burning a hole in our respective pockets waiting for a decent HX923....i've had two bad ones and as they say third times the charm. If I got for a 3rd set i will definitely view the actual set i'm about to buy instore rather than have any more hassle setting it up at home and messing up the lounge.

What is going on with you now Andy, are you still waiting for a new one?  Or have you now given up and are going to buy another one instead?

Just be in to the Sony Shop in Bournemouth where they have both the 46" and the 55" on display. Neither of them show any signs of this fault. Dance 4 So hopefully a clean batch is starting to make its way into the stores.

RE: Faulty KDL55HX923

I'm over in the US and I also had the crease issue - although after watching this whole thing play out I feel like I originally had a pretty extreme case of the crease issue.

That said I had the screen replaced at Sony's suggestion and the replacement screen still has the crease. It's not as noticeable but now I'm having issues with the backlight, where it flickers when the screen goes from dark to bright on certain content - in addition to my blacks being not nearly as deep as they were on my original set.

Hoping that Sony will just replace the TV at this point and I'll live with whatever crease I get. Not ideal but I'd rather have the original crease than these new issues with the replacement panel.
