Blue dots on LCD screen

The blue dots started as a small circle of dots in the middle of the screen. Withing days, there were more dots and now they are spread out all over, but concentrated on the middle of the screen. What can we do?? Our TV is only about 3 years old and we do not wish to buy a new one,as we spent over $2500 for this one. We replaced the lamp about 4 months ago. This dot thing just started about 3-4 weeks ago. please help!

    I called Sony and they said it is the Optical block that went bad. They are willing to extend my warranty and cover the cost of repair ($1000) at no cost to me. They also offered to replace the TV with a choice of 3 new ones at reduced costs. they ranged from 42-46" all flat screen, LCD, HD latest Sony technology at a cost from $300 to $523. These new TV's do not have a lamp to replace, nor do they have an optical block to go bad. We opted to purchase a new 46" TV (retails $2500) for $523., with free shipping. Deal was too good to pass up. If we choose to repair our old one, the costs are on us because we took the new TV deal.

You will most likely need to replace the panel. You will have to contact Sony and they will send a Factory Trained Technician to your home to replace it. Since you are not on Factory Warranty this repair will cost you. You may find it cheaper just to replace the television.

Can a blue dot on a tv screen get worse or stay the same.


One little blue dot is not enough to warranty the television. If you read all the documents on the set, it will tell you that some imperfections in the display are allowed. The good news is that it wont get any worse

Blue spots on screen


Most likely the LCD panel is failing. These are "stuck pixels". Common with early LCD displays used on DLP TVs.

Blue dots on LCD screen, Sony tv.


You probably need a new optic block. The part alone is approx. $900.00. Sony has had this issue with most of their rear projection LCD televisions. Sony was offering to either repair the tv or give you a substantial credit [$1100.00 or so] towards the purchase of a new Sony LCD flat screen but I believe this program ended in December of 2008. You may still be able to call Sony customer service and plead your case. Good luck!!

BLOWN PIXELS


Usually not but in some cases gently massageing the dot(tv turned on or off try both) with your finger may work (dont push too hard)

or put on a channel with static and try

your chances are slim though this is usually a defect in the lcd technology and most manufactures only warranty it for 5-7 stuck pixels

Blue Streak


I had the same problem w/ the same TV about 6 months ago. You need a new optical engine. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Once that was replaced, the tv looks great.
