I had the same problem with my 4 yr old Sony KDF60WF655 rear projection set, and I was fortunate to buy a 4 year extended warranty - because it was the $1300. (not incl labor), Optic Block that was replaced to fix the problem. That part contains all new LCDs, & Lens & some electronics. I had already got a new bulb (under warranty) a few weeks earlier, that I had not yet installed so the service guy did replace that as well. (This happened 3 weeks before my warranty ended)

He told me that he replaces hundreds of Sony Optic Blocks every year and that many Sony Rear Projection sets have FACTORY extended warranties because of some known problems with the blue LCD panels.

The tech checked my Service Codes & showed me the TV had been running for 10051 hours in about 4 years - on the Original bulb! He was quite surprised because he said the bulbs usually last about 5000 - 7000 hours. He also said it's good to replace them BEFORE they go bad, because they can sometimes burn out the amplifier that powers the bulb, (which is a seperate piece that attaches to the outside of the Optic Block). My TV is like new now.

If it is blue in a corner , then the blue light filter is probably partially melted.

momkennedy13,

You have the fatal Sony KDF optical engine issue. Sony has had most if not all these models fail prematurely. The solution is to replace the optical engine. The problem is they are not available as a new unit only a repaired unit so the problem will no doubt reappear in the future. Many people have had success with contacting the Sony customer service representatives and can usually get them to sell you a new unit for a couple hundred dollars. For my money that would be the best way for you to go. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r7851924-sony_projector_yellow_or_blue_dots which explains the problem and offers solutions.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Your blue LCD panel is failing. It is within the Optical Block and the entire block must be replaced in order to repair this. Over time (usually a short amount of time) this problem while progress until the picture is bad enough that you will want it fix immediately. So, it's good that you are looking into this now :) Here is a PN for the Optical Block... PN: A-1084-668-A I hope this helps.

KDF-60XS955 Blue dots all over screen. Lower left corner of screen has a small blue cone shape. Will a new bulb fix this? If yes how do I replace the bulb?


It is problem of light engine (optical block) in TV and Lamp replacement does not solve it.
TV needs replacement of light engine, that is costly part.

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.
