I have blue dots on the screen. I cleaned the glass on the projection bulb and the prizm but still have blue dots.


Your tv is an LCD projection one - in which the image is generated by 3 small LCD screens. The blue dots are pixels from the blue LCD that are dead - always fully open.The only fix is to replace the LCD panel and that is going to cost you around $300.

Blue dots and streaks


Blue streaks might have been just your video connection and problem with signaling. But, blue dots is faulty light engine, aka "optical block". The engine in this could be a defective LCD array. Very expensive, a optical block is about $850. Hope it's still under warranty. You could get a rebuilt one, possibly. Need service adjustment too. Bad problem that Sony has with these kinds of sets.

Need a new lamp but screen is becoming filled with blue dots. Tv is 3 yrs old; ave - use. Told it will be useless in 1 yr. Sony projected many yrs of use for this expensive tv. Are they still making this...


No they are not, in fact that type of tv is being phased out. Basically this technology was more bang for your buck ( bigger screens for cheaper), unfortunately they work off of either halogen or led light bulbs which halogens dont last very long. Maybe 5000-7000 hours of use. New bulbs cost around $250, but need special care replacing it in the tv, alignment is crucial to tv clarity.

Blue ghost image on left side of screen


The Optical Block Assy would have to be replaced, same part that causes Blue Dots, not considered to be user replaceable.
