You have a bad optical block. Sony has extended the warranty on your TV so the block will be replaced for free. Go here for more information:

Better call a repairman. Ours did that (and so did my sister's) and it turned out it was the optical block which SONY warranted. They must have had trouble with it because they kept extending the warranty on that particular part. Might want to check to see if they still honor it.

One yellow, one pink, and one blue spots appeared on my tv screen.


The set if projection which model here is, has arced and now each of the three picture tubes used has a tiny permanent burn mark on its screen.

That is what you are seeing, the set uses three picture tubes with screens like the old tv sets===the coating has been burnt in each, want to prove it, remove rear cover and cover any one of the three lens and that mark on one tube will go a way.

Not fixable.

Can you still see the spot when the TV is off? In any event, the screen may have something on it or the mirror that reflects the image from the projector where the bulb is. Make sure the projector bulbs are clean. Good luck, thanks for using FixYa.

Blue dots center and yellow stain right hand corner on 60'' sonytv


Yes, I do. It needs a new light engine. Very costly repair. However, Sony has extended the warranty on many of these LED projector sets. You need to call a local Sony authorized service center and see if your model is covered. Otherwise this repair could run over a thousand bucks.

Large yellow spot in center of tv screen


Sorry, but there is no cheap method of repair for this unless it is in warranty.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty.

Good luck.....

Yellow spots


I have no suggestions but I am having the exact problem, yellow haze in the top right corner of the screen with a yellow line running down to the bottom of the screen. I guess we need to call tech support.
