    Default My Sony XBR 27" is failing

    The color looks awful, reddish and fuzzy. I bought it back in 1993 from Silo (remember that chain? perhaps it was more of a West Coast chain). Am I about to chuck out a TV or a tube replacement still make sense (cost-wise)?

    Is it the end of it or a failing component issue? what is the typical life for a Sony trinitron tube such as this?

    Thanks, folks!
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    I think it's almost a forgone conclusion.

    SXRD, here I come (once the coin jar is full)...

    that would be like dropping it off from the 27th floor? :)

    it would definitely be lethal, since you know all XBRs weigh double its counterpart..

    Defiantly time to upgrade! I am waiting for my XBR to fail so I can get a new one approved by the financial controller. However it's only 5 years old so I have about 8 years to go. :(
