    I spoke with Sony yesterday and they said they are no longer covering the optical block.They said they only covered it untill December, I'm late by 29 days!!! They said I have to cover the cost myself. It seems that this is a wide spread problem with all of Sony's tv's. They used a defective part during production and sold it to the public.They even lost a class action law suit over this part being bad. I'm going to try to fight it out with corporate office.

    I have the exact same damn blue cloud...started about 3 weeks ago.....it is now covering nearly 1/3 of the screen mostly on the left side. We paid $3500.00 for this TV and it 4 years old.....and Sony is not going to step up the to plate....complete BS! I have been a LOYAL Sony comsumer all my life, I am very disappointed with this TV.

    Model KDF-55XS955 has a blue cloud left center starting to show. I bought the B BY extended warranty, think it will cover? deoppressoliber@comcast.net for information is welcome.

    Small blue cloud at bottom center showed up this evening. Five-year old Wega KF-42WE610. Will look for a Sony-authorized tech tomorrow.

    About 3 weeks ago, my screen started to show a blue cloud along the left side, and has now progressed to the top center of the screen. Thankfully, I took out the extended warranty on this, and the service person will be coming by to have a look this week. I do have the replacement insurance on it. Much like most of you, I bought the tv in Jan., 2005 (4 years ago) and I paid $2700 + tax. As soon as I have more information, I will share with all of you. My model is the KF42WE620.

    Blue Cloud in middle of screen and blue "bar" along the entire bottom of screen.  New bulb was worse than one it replaced.

    Blue LCD in light-engine (optical block) is started to be bad and blue cloud will be more in picture day by day.
    Check Sony Service Center if they can replace blue lcd and filter instead of complete light-engine.
    Complete light engine (optical block) is high cost fix.
