If everything including sony menu is unclear, yeah cleaning may help. dirt can get inside the engine too. look at a white screen, this is your answer (or a black in some cases). any dirt on mirror or lense will be uncolored distortions. colored distortions are inside the light engine.

When I try turning on the TV the power/standby light flashes green until I turn the TV off, no picture appears.


Hi,
If Sony KF-60WE610 does not show any Red blinking light then it is Lamp that need to be replaced because existing lamp has reached to end of its life but still not dead nor broken and causing problem.
If lamp got dead or broken, tv will show you Lamp light blinking.
Replace lamp in tv to solve its problem.
Hope these info will help you.
Please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have any question.
Thanks.

How do I change the optical block in a sony tv


Disconnecting wiring from power supply block

This step may be optional, if power supply block must be transferred to purchased replacement optical block. Undo the blue plastic-coated wire holders to release the two wire bundles. Disconnect the connectors shown with the dotted lines in the photo below. One, which presumably provides power, is disconnected directly from the power supply block, and the other is a regular wire connector.a837b7e.jpg

Disconnect the optical block fan wire connector:

Disconnecting the wiring from the optical block circuit board (C Board)

Carefully pull up on the three wire connectors directly connected to the top of the C Board:

Final wire disconnection from C Board

Remove the screw and gently pull the blue ribbon ribbon cable out of the side of the C Board:

Your optical block should now be entirely free of the TV and ready to ship. I recommend adding specific protection for the projection lens, then sealing the whole unit in a bag to prevent infiltration of dust or packing materials, then carefully packaging it with substantial padding.

Removing the projection lamp (in cases where you are installing a purchased replacement optical block)

Loosen the hex screw next to the projection lamp housing, and pull the lamp and housing outward from the metal clips.

Here is a picture of a replacement optical block for the KF-60WE610. Note that some parts of the old optical block need to be removed and installed on the replacement block.
