Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

HDR on Consoles and WINDOWS 10 ,  You need to adjust the contrast turn it up to 100 most of the time this solves the issue with washed out images.

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

Its not a picture setting that needs adjustd. it is hdr not working correctly. it is a widely known issue after the creators edition updated for win 10. im still skeptical my tv is working correctly as the different hdmi ports all not work in different ways. nvidia is supposedly working on it. But it has been about 2 months unresolved.

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

Did anyone ever solve this? Still having the same exact issue as described in this MASIVE thread on my XBR-49X800D. PS4 Pro and Netflix fail to display proper HDR whereas a flash drive plugged in displays gorgeous color. I am on version 7.0 of the firmware.Changing picture setting makes no difference. COLOR SHOULD NEVER LOOK BETTER WITH HDR OFF! Period. Some people in this thread are nuts. Regarding the issue, I've been on and off the phone with both Sony and Playstation support and neither of them will admit this is even an issue, Playstation even told me to "just wait for an update, I guess?"

It's really infuriating! I specifically bought this TV for HDR, and, 800 dollars later, have nothing to show for it...

Lol tell me about it I have the XBR 75X940D in addition to dull washed out HDR i get massive motion trials behind everything moving but it's ok cause Sony "engineers" said it's normal for a high proformance pannel... phew... an $8,000 TV MSRP when it first came out so good to know. NEVER buy a Sony TV again trust me. I've had more exchanges for failed Sony TVs than anyone i know - they all KRAP! Even their flagship model. Super excited to get into a Samsung and never loot back. Sony is absolute ****** and Carolyn Hayes is a huge fUucking ******.

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

Have you guys experimented with other HDR tv's? I have and I can tell you that Sony isn't that bad. I'm not a Sony fanboy but I'm just sharing what I've seen. After viewing HDR on some other television sets I feel like my HDR is pretty good (once i adjusted setting to my liking). I'm not saying it's perfect, by any means, but I don't believe it to be as terrible as some make it out to be. I think though that this technology is going to be very subjective in the eye of the user.

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

Slammed- I returned my Sony and ended up with 2 Samsungs and the sammys are far better. My advice to anyone still reading this board after buying a Sony tv is if you ended up here you know there is a problem, it isn't getting fixed and if you have an HDR tv that you find looks better with HDR off there are many better choices for far less than what you paid. RETURN IT AND DONT LOOK BACK.
