Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old

Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

Tv has little blue dots

Once again, this is a problem with the optical block or light engine assy. The LCD panels have been damaged by excessive heat from the lamp. Sony has been directed by the New York state attorney general's office to extend warranties on these sets for models going back 4 years. Call Sony at 1-800-222-SONY for assistance.

3LCD Projection TV 2.5 years old displaying blue hue/blobs

I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.
