I would recoment you take this to a service center. From you short description I suspect the optical assy is bad, if you are lucky it could just be dust. The optical assy. is the most expensive part in the tv. good luck.

I am the owner of a Sony KDF 50WE655. I have pink dots on the screen that are very obvious in light backgrounds. Exactly what needs to be replaced in the television? Thanks


It seems that the light engine is going bad. This is common problem for 3LCD projection television.You need to replace the light engine, it's quite expensive and nearly to the price of new unit..

optical block bad please mark post as fixya!

2003-2004 Model Year Grand WEGA Televisions:

Models: KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610, KDF-70XBR950, KDF-60XBR950, KDF-42WE655, KDF-50WE655, KDF-55WF655, KDF-60WF655, KDF-55XS955, KDF-60XS955, KF-42WE620, and KF-50WE620.

As technology evolves, Sony continually looks to stand behind the reliability of its televisions. It has come to our attention that a very limited number of televisions manufactured between 2003-2005, after a period of time exhibit a stationary scribble / random line pattern on the screen. Click here to see photos of this symptom.

As part of our commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that for any owner of this model television who paid out-of pocket expenses on or before May 26, 2006 for an estimate or repair service to replace the optical block for this specific issue, Sony will reimburse the customer by mail for his/her parts and labor expenses. To receive reimbursement, please follow completely the directions and terms on the claim form for reimbursement; all claims must be postmarked by May 31, 2007.

In addition, for any customer who later experiences this issue on one of the affected models, Sony will cover the cost of the optical block repair at no charge through September 30, 2007. All other terms of the Sony limited warranty continue to apply.
