    I have had my Sony KP-51 WS500 RPTV for almost a year now and I am starting to notice a flicker in the picture and it is very annoying. The flicker is not drastic but I fear it could get worse. I heard about certain serial numbers of this TV having problems so I made sure the one I bought did not fall in between those certain serial numbers. But now it is flickering and I was wondering what could be causing it and if its fixable. Who would I contact to get it fixed? The one year warranty is almost up. any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    The certain serial numbers don't mean a thing anymore. It can happen to any of them and it sounds like yours is doing it. Just call Sony SAYS and they 'should' take care of you if it is indeed the flicker issue. Good luck [​IMG]

    My Sony KP65WS500 had this same problem, I had a tech come and he replaced some parts and he even ISF calibrated it (he is completing his course so did it for free). It has not flickered since and never looked better. I am happy this was all warranty.

    Get this checked soon.

    I have had a KP51WS500 for one year now and had the flickering problem addressed. Mine was fixed, but the flicker returned, not as bad but still there. Apparently, there are new service notices and I may have to have one of the color guns replaced. I'd get this looked at ASAP by whoever does warrenty work for Sony in your area. I love mine, even with the problem it's a beautiful TV.
