Sony Projection TV KDF-60XS955- glowing blue in corner of screen

About 1 month ago the corner of my screen (Sony KDF-60XS955) started glowing bright blue. It expands off and on like the northern lights to fill about 1/4 of the screen. I just replaced the lamp with one I received directly from Sony, and the glowing remains. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have the same problem with my sony, about 2 months ago I changed the lamp in it and 4 weeks later there is a blue blob on the right side of the screen and its getting bigger by the day, I did some research on internet and there was a recall about this problem on this model but the time limit ran out on Dec, 08, so sony wont do anything for you, the problem is the optical block and it is very expensive to fix, so I went and bought a new tv, not a sony since they left me out to dry. But if anybody Knows where I can replace the optical block for a reasonable price please let me know.

SOURCE: 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.

With all due respect, you're asking the wrong people. Only Sony can tell you if you're too late but my experience has been that they're normally pretty fair with considering out of warranty goodwill repairs.
Ask Sony and if they can't help then come back and ask about your problem on FixYa.

G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further
