Question about LG RU-44SZ51D 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Blue dots my tv is now 26 months old...after 18 months of faultless operation several blue, pin-head sized dots appeared in a cluster on the bottom of the screen. It soon grew to a 30 plus cluster over the next two months. it's now grown to three clusters of over 100 dots along the bottom of the screen with several scattered smaller clusters (approx 10 -20 dots) around the rest of the screen. through the dots we can see that the remainer of the picture is a sharp as it ever was. we occasionally get a pale blue "water mark" on the screen. nothing consistant in either size, shape or position on the screen...while not ideal we can live with this if we have too

You have a bad blue LCD in the light engine. Replacement of the light engine is the only fix and it usually will continue to get worse over time

Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team at 1-239-768-7547 and ask for the recall issue Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues previously. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Blue dots and streaks


Blue streaks might have been just your video connection and problem with signaling. But, blue dots is faulty light engine, aka "optical block". The engine in this could be a defective LCD array. Very expensive, a optical block is about $850. Hope it's still under warranty. You could get a rebuilt one, possibly. Need service adjustment too. Bad problem that Sony has with these kinds of sets.

This was caused by a defect in the optical block of the TV. It will only get worse with time and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive (over $1000 usually) and time consuming (you need to take the whole TV apart). However, since it was a defect, there was a class action lawsuit that caused Sony to extended the warranties for certain models on the optical block for parts and labor. Call Sony to see if your model was one of the ones they extended the warranty for.

Blue dots in KDF-60WF655


Yes, your optical block ( light engine) is bad. Heat generated by the lamp circuit with its poorly designed ventilation system, cause the LCD panels inside the light engine to fail. They are the size of a postage stamp. There are 3 LCDs, for red, blue, and green. The heat causes them to warp and de-laminate.

Sony has systematically downed played the scope of this issue. It appears however that virtually every LCD projector they make can develop damage in the light engine which is extremely expensive to fix.

I suggest contacting Sony and your state's attorney general's office of consumer complaints asking for action on this.

HDTV is getting blue dots and the right side has turned blue


These issues are problems in the light engine (optics block)
the dots are called "starfield" and the geometric is "roadmap"
replacing the light engine will fix the issue. for awhile, sony was extending the warrany on the engine for these issues only, but that may have expired.

Your problem is simple. The problem is your pannel. You need a new one. If it is under warranty, have it fixed. If not buy a new tv.

On the KDFE55A20 this sounds like a bad Q-Box. I would get an estimate from a Sony authorized servicer as this part may be quite expensive. On the 55A10 model this may be the B-Block and is also quite expensive. Getting an on-sit estimate would be the first step I suggest. Again go with an authorized Sony servicer. Call Sony or go to Sony.com for customer service. Good Luck
