I don't think they can just replace part of the panel since they'd presumably have to cut away the affected section which would probably be more trouble than just replacing the whole thing. The warranty probably won't cover it since the damage to the screen is fairly prominent. Maybe you can see if there are DIY TV screen repair videos on Youtube and maybe try to find a panel? Not sure how much it would cost to have it repaired.

Yeah I don't think its worth the hassle tbh. The only thing I can think of is if a credit card used would cover accidental damage but unfortunately it was my wife's BB card and they don't cover it. So I am now looking to purchase the X90J.

Sony has rolled out its new firmware 6.1228 for the X900H/XH90 in China which includes,

Android 10
VRR
ALLM

No date on when UK, US etc.. will deploy.

My best guess is maybe when Sony’s PS5 Console will receive it’s next firmware update which will unlock support for VRR & 8K Native Output.

I havenít downloaded it or updated my 900H yet.

I did look at a video on YouTube showing what happens when you select VRR from the External inputs.

From what I gather, Local Dimming is greyed out as one of the TVís features. It even shows in HDMI signal formats description that some display features will be missing with VRR.

What makes the 900H so appealing (Great HDR) is its Auto Local Dimming with X-tended Dynamic Range.

VRR apparently turns both off.

I have heard ďRumoursĒ that Sony is working on a VRR 2.0 slated for this Winter.

Did some tests on the “Vertical Resolution being Cut in Half” when running the PS5 in 120hz Mode.

Turns out that is partly correct.

While in-game, I noticed the X900H is displaying a full fat 2160p@120hz but when I looked at the PS5 UI, the vertical Resolution is displaying 1080p/vertical.

Very strange. I’m still running the firmware that came out before VRR.

I keep hearing from others & on YouTube videos about tech that X900H has this issue. Their tests are obviously done with PC or Xbox. We know Xbox has a 40GB/s CAP on bandwidth through HDMI 2.1 & PS5 has a 32GB CAP on HDMI 2.1 Bandwidth.

Maybe the folks at Sony PlayStation’s 1st Party Studios have coded their way around this issue but I seriously doubt that they would go to all that trouble for 1 TV.

Worth noting back in PS5’s launch, Call of Duty as well as every 120hz title I’ve tested didn’t have any issues resolving 2160/120. The only title that released that I can say for sure had 120hz issues is “Dirt 5” @ 120 on the X900H.

I am curious if the bandwidth CAP on Sony’s console is causing the UI to not Display Full Fat 2160p/120hz?

Basically ignore my above post. Since my findings later on revealed 3840x1080p@120hz

Hmm I only got the VRR update yesterday. Wonder why it took so long for it to show up. It will take some time for me to get used to the new settings menu.

I haven’t updated my X900H yet because of the video above.

The X900H is a 60hz Panel & should be treated as such.

Sony needs to be held accountable for lying or false advertising this TV.
The first test in Vincent’s video clearly shows when in VRR, the panel is a Native 60hz Panel.

That's really unfortunate. Do you think Sony would do anything to fix it if that's even possible or offer any compensation?

No.

Sony is instead hiding the fact that the TV can barely do 120hz by removing its specs from Sony.com

Just recently they changed the specs on their official website for the X900H regarding,

HDMI Signal Formats supported

No longer will you see 3840x2160 120hz.

You will only see 3840x2160 24hz, 30hz, 60hz

I have a question about my Sony x900f (2019 model, I know).

Is the x900f models known for having signal drops when showing HDR content?

Sony’s arrogance just straight up breaks laws in an Region. I think the tipping point in their QA dropped somewhere between the XBR models launched in 2014 & then the announcement that they said they wouldn’t make any TVs in 2015 & then did a 180 the following year.

Heck my TVs I’ve owned going from recent to old were pretty much all Sony.

All 65” except RPTV which was 60”

Sony X900H
Sony XBR900B + XBR850B (2014)
Sony 1080p LCD (forget model #)
Sony 1080p RPTV (forget model #)
Sony 720p/1080i LCD (forget model #)

So basically the last time I owned a TV that wasn’t Sony was sometime around 2005 when TVs we’re still trying to figure out 1080i or 1080p.

As much as I hate what they did with this X900h Im not going to cry over it. Reason being 1. it was the first TV on the market that could do what it did with the necessary software updates which Sony did in a timley fashion. 2. Even with the BS the TV still has a gorgeous picture, ive since moved my X90h to my Sons switch, and ive moved my Ps5 to my X95.

Where it matters in the eyes of my son he cant tell the difference as hes 6 he loves the X90h. Kid thinks hes a king for having a 55" play TV lol.

I dislike Samsung now a days I cant be assed to buy there equipment. LG has a great pic but the audio out of the TV is angled down and back not to the front.

The Sony is the best TV on the market and ive loved every one ive bought.

The PQ is absolutely fine if you are happy with 60hz content & no VRR. The TV has incredible blacks & the HDR is also excellent.

Where it falls apart is when you want a 4K/120hz image with VRR. Then itís all downhill.

For me, itís not something Iím willing to accept as Iím a gamer & I want 2.1 features but not at the expense of half Resolution or VRR at 60hz only with no local Dimming.
