I am getting my TV serviced because it has developed an orange spot in the upper left hand corner after two years of great service. I bought the extended warranty for the peace of mind (I know, I know, waste of money usually) so I made a call and scheduled a visit. My question is, what should I have fixed while the guy is out here? My TV has uneven brightness when it is a completely dark screen, is that fixable? Also, when I turn the TV on, there are noticeable flashes in the screen, is this normal? I don't remember this happening when I first bought the set. Any other flaws with this set that I should have looked at? Anything I should check for? I tried a search last night, but I couldn't find any threads dealing with problems with the Sony XBR450. Thanks for the help.
