New owner- white cloud effect from bright backlight

I just purchased a Sony XBR55X700D 4K tv. 

When there's a scene with a lot of backlight, for example, an actor in front of a bright window, there is a cloud of white light washing over the character.

is there a particular setting that might prevent this?


The tv has a lot of viewing options (sports, home, etc.), might one of these help?

Re: New owner- white cloud effect from bright backlight

Hi Larryd517,


Welcome and thank you for considering the SONY Communuty!


Regarding your concern about the backlight and a cloud of white light, this effect is actually working within the TV specifications. However, if you find this affects your enjoyment, here are a few adjustments that can be made to minimize this condition.


  • Reduce the Back light Level in the Picture Settings Menu.
  • Turn the Light Sensor setting to On in the Setup Menu.
  • Change the Power Saving setting to Low or High in the Setup Menu.
  • Set the Picture Mode to Standard in the Settings Menu.
