KBR-55HX950 horizontal black line

just got off the phone with customer service. My KBR-55HX950 has a horizontal black line going through the middle and they basically told good luck find someone to fix it...Mind you its the only TV left that works because my other Sony TV not even a year old 65X930D 4K HDR just decided not to turn on and their Tech couldnt fix it so they are sending a new one..I guess Sony is not the company it was.  The respose from the CS rep, take it to a authorized repair store that is over 1.5 hour away..


Thank you, Sony for the great service. 30 years of sony products office and home and that os what you get from Sony.


I wonder is Samsung treats their customers the same...You cant make this up.....

My local gym has about 8 Sony TVS around the wall and 5 of them are doing exactly the same as your TV.

I looked behind one of them and sadly its the same model number as yours. (X950).

Looks like yet another Sony fail.
