    I've had 2 KV36HS500's delivered this week and the delivery man told me that the greenish tint in the bottom left hand corner of the screen is normal and will go away in about a week. He said it was something to do with shipping the tv's with speakers? Strange that both tvs had exactly the same issue. Is this greenish tint common and will it go away? Any advise/suggestions?

    Your problem sounds similar to what I experienced. Are you referring to the internal speakers in the set? I found the green area to grow larger the longer the set stayed on. Crutchfield immediately told me they would replace the set after calling them. I expect my replacement the early part of next week. See my earlier post.

    Paulaceto,

    A green tint anywhere is indicative of residual magnetization in that part of the screen. It CAN come from proximity to a permanent magnet, such as that in a speaker, BUT, the degaussing circuit in the set should remove it within --at most-- a week's time. If not, the degausser is not working properly. It's what makes the disturbing (GUNNNNGGG) sound when you first turn on the set. You should always hear this when turning on the set cold... it doesn't usually operate if you turn the set off and back on when it's been running for any period of time.

    I had my new KV32HS500 replaced once for the problem of a degaussing circuit not working properly, leaving green tints in all of the corners.

    How did you get your set replaced? My 36HS500 is not right.

    The dealer I bought the set from replaced it under the initial 90-day Sony warranty.
