~Maureen77: My parents recently passed away and I inherited their **" Sony Bravia XMB. I have been trying to locate all of the paperwork for the TV (User's manual, receipt, etc...) so that I would have it in the event I need it in the future. All I wanted to know was the purchase date. I know my parents registered the TV when they purchased it because I found the *nd half of the perforated registration card. I called Sony Customer Service and spoke with "Carlos" to ask if he could look up the date of purchase in their computer after I provided him with the Model* and Serial*. Carlos said the only way he could provide me with that information was if my parents had previously called them or if they could give permission to speak with me which would be extremely difficult since they are both deceased which I told him at the beginning of the call and several more times throughout the call! I wasn't asking for any personal or classified information* just the date of purchase so I could have it for
