Optical block . . .

My KDS-55A2000 SXRD developed a yellow cast to all pictures. Purchased in 2006 I also purchased an extended warranty through Mac Camera. I contacted Mac Camera and described the problem. They sent me to Sony Support. After describing the problem they surmised it as an optical block problem. The tech also said that Sony had extended its warranty on this device.
I got a phone call a few days later from a Sony repair center to verify the problem. They ordered the part and it will be replaced this week.
My experience? No hassle. My extended warranty is not used as Sony is covering the repair.
