We complained to Sony so much about the optical block thing and they actually replaced for free. The cost roughly $1000.00 to repair and that's why we complained to Sony because we had not had our tv maybe 3 years and when you spend that kind of money on a tv like that you expect it to work and not replace things after 3 years. Write Sony and keep at them.

Probably too expensive to repair.

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

How do you manually set the convergence on a Sony KDF-60XS955


lcd projection sets don't need a flash focus ...there is no convergence alignment. replacing the optical block should be all you need to do. the block contains the lcd panels with the picture already aligned.

Blue dots and blue area on my screen


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.

Blue tint at the bottom of the screen


Your optical block (light engine) is going bad. A very expensive part. Sony has a history of trouble with a lot of these. Sont will also sometimes warranty them for customers. Contact them with your model, serial, and date of purchase. Good luck.

Please help-question about sony optical blocks


Talk to Sony about the blue blob issue, they may still replace the optical block for free.

If not, fix the blinking light TV.

Blink Codes
3X - Lamp cover not installed correctly, usually after lamp change, or cover detect switch is bad.
4X - Check fans (one or more failed to pass RPM test during power on diagnostics)
5X - Lamp ballast (power supply)
6X - Usually the thermal fuse - usually from inadequate air flow (fans dusty)

All other codes usually require a trained technician to diagnose and repair.
