    That's highly likely to be the bulb. Yes it certainly does dim over time. I sold mine to my aunt about three years ago and the bulb went like that before it eventually popped. Got the replacement bulb off Ebay and it was easy enough to replace. Lamp For Sony TV XL-2400 KDF-E50A12U Bulb KDFE50A12U | eBay

    The set is still going strong after 6+ years now. :smashin:
