Sony XH90 - dark cloudy shadows around edge - how to fix?


Novice Member
Hi all,

I’ve been searching the internet for a solution for this, but so far, to no avail.

Just wondered if anyone here could shed some light? (Literally)

I recently bought the above model (august 2021) and all seemed fine. I’m not sure if I’ve only just noticed or if it is something that has developed over the past few months, but there are these dark clouds around the edge of the TV (I’m sure they weren’t there when I bought it).

Only really noticeable when pure colours are displayed like on simple animation (simpsons etc…), but still noticeable on other content (playstation, Xbox, Netflix… everything really) anyway, on display in the picture below is just a pure white YouTube video to demonstrate the dark areas.

Any suggestions to fix or at least improve this would be greatly appreciated.

hope it's the warranty and get it replaced.
