sony lcd oddity ?

05-14-2009, 01:32 PM
Have had a Sony KDL-40V4100 (40 inch lcd) for about 6 months... Ever since I bought it, I noticed it takes about 15 minutes to "warm up". I use it mostly to play videogames and it is very noticeable. For the first 15 minutes after turning on the tv, the pixels blur when there is movement. After the 15 minutes (or so) it stops and the picture will be normal. Is it some setting I have turned off / on, or an anomaly of this tv? It's not a deal breaker by any means, but it is annoying for a fact.

Call Sony IMMEDIATELY and have it repaired under warranty!

That is NOT normal at all and something is wrong.

What I don't understand is when people keep the malfunctioning item thinking the issue will just go away.

To some this is very new and add to that a lack of knowlege about what should and shouldn't happen with their new TV easily leads to people just thinking that something is normal when it isn't.
