I have seen this several times. usually its a sighn of the lamp getting weak. replace the lamp and should be good to go. as far as the bluish purplish hue, most likely the optical assy.

Above is your user manual, below is your service and repair manual.

This may very well be a lamp problem, or it may be the "Driver" for the lamp, or indeed the Power Supply to that lamp, unfortunately one must troubleshoot these issues to isolate the actual problem, Please use these manuals, and you should soon be able to isolate and effect a repair.

Blue tint on bottom of screen

I have the same KDF60XS955 sony and have the same problem. I called sony customer support and was told there was a recall on the optical block for this tv. But the recall ended in Dec. of 2008. I was upset that they did not call or send out a notice to me. They should of had my information because I had a different issue that they sent someone out to fix a few years ago. They said it was an expensive fix, like over 1000 dollars. Instead of fixing it they offered me a deal on a smaller tv, a 52 inch sony. I could buy that one at a discount which is about 1100 dollars. I told them that I thought that was the worst deal I have ever heard of. Why would I spend about 4000 dollars for a tv 4 years ago only to be told that I could buy a smaller one today for 1100 dollars more. I said if I bought that 52 inch tv today, what would happen 4 years from today, am I going to be offered an even smaller one for more money again? I thought I was buying a top of the line tv back then, I only wished it would have lasted longer than this. Not happy!

Tv turns off and on

The first time my lamp needed replaced, the red light came on as well. This time my tv did the same thing, but after talking to my tv repair man he thought it was the lamp. He said that if you use your tv often then the lamp probaly needs to be changed after two or three years. I replacedmy bulb and it corrected the problem and I MUCH BETTER PICTURE.
