  • Anonymous Nov 16, 2008

    My parents sony KDF-55XS955 developed a blue spot in the bottom left hand corner and a line projected out along the bottom to the middle of the screen. My father thaought it might be a lamp issue. I started researching this on the internet and saw all these people with the same issue. They said it was an optical block issue. This set is about 2 1/2 years old and did not get the extended warrantee. Some said sony would fix this issue until dec 2008. I imediately called sony direct on the weekend and explained the issue. They gave me a case number. My father followed up on monday. ithin a week a service tech came out and replaced it at NO cost. Sony is a big company and took care of us. Thats surprising in these times!

You have the blue dot or star pattern on screen issue

Sony will fix it for free until December 28, 2008. I would contact Sony and they will send a repair person out to confirm and fix it.

Agoraquest has the information in the url below and the procedures to fix it.

Probably the optics block. It needs to be replaced.

However, it looks like you're in luck. Sony will reimburse you.

Problem with sony 60" rear projection TV

I'm afraid, it is problem of optical block unit (light engine) that produce picture by 3 lcds inbuilt, the blue lcd and its related uv filters become defective and causing this kind of blue hue on screen.
Complete optical unit block (light engine) will be replaced by qualified tech to get tv fixed, light engine is costly part so ask an estimate before sending tv in.

This blue dot and hue problem is due to bad lcd in your tv as its Sony dlp tv that has optics block, that is also called light engine, it consists of 3 lcds, filters and lamp to produce an image that projects on front screen.
In this tv, blue lcd became defective and complete light engine will be replaced to get it fixed.
As other expert talking about blue CRT (cathode ray tube) that does not exist in this tv and my fellow expert has no idea about this kind of tv, sorry for that.
Hope this info will help you, let me know if you have additional question.

Blue dots on screen plus ghosting on screen

The optical block is defective. Contact Sony support. Sometimes they will warranty these even after the 1yr warranty has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.

Kf-42610 blue hue and blue dots on screen

Hi Guys

The Blue dots or discolouration you are seeing is due too the Blue LCD screen having cracked from excessive heat. This normally happens when you have a power failure while the Television was on. This obviously because the Blue LCD sits next to the lamp - the main cause of heat. The correct part number on the 60" is A-1086-952-A. It is very, very ,expensive.

Sorry to have been the bearer of bad news. Good luck : )
