    I've had my KP46WT500 for about 4 months. I was watching a DVD a few nights ago and started noticing a greenish flicker on the flesh tones. I pulled my player out earlier to get to the plug and thought that one of the cables might had got lose. I checked all cables and watched several DVD's and digital cable and am convinced I've got the Sony flicker. It's very noticeable on a darker scene where there are large areas of one color. when you pause a DVD it is very noticeable. Guess I will be getting a hold of Sony Costumer service soon. anyone else have this problem? Was Sony helpful and quick with service?

    Thanks

    Update:

    I disassembled my cabinet and pulled the tv out to get the information off the back

    Serial # 9008576 RA-6
    manufacture date November 2002

    I believe mine will be covered under the flicker issue warranty

    will be calling Sony tomorrow when I have the time to wait on hold.

    Thanks
    Greg
