I got a SONY KD-32DX100 delivered on Friday. It looked "new". (no scratch, no dust on screen at all. And manual & remote were sealed in a plastic bag.) Well.... the unit had a bit of geometry problem. (I tested with AVIA.) So I went into service mode to to fix the geometry. The timer was at 114 hours. If this timer counts testing/setting/optimising in a factory, I wouldn't worry about it. If I didn't see the timer, I wouldn't doubt for a second at all. The unit looks that new. Oh, BTW I fixed the geometry problem. It isn't 100% perfect, but very good for CRT. I can't expect 100% perfection from CRT anyway. Anyway... could anyone comment/advise on the timer please ? I'm not sure if I should exchange it.
