Called Sony today to get the optical box replaced and fix another issue dealing with image cycling and they made the same offer:  fix my current KDF60XS955 or upgrade to a KDL52W4100 for $843.  That's an INSANELY low price.  Seems to me that want the KDF60XS955 our of circulation.  They've had a lot of issues with them.  If you have this TV and have the optical box issue, call them they will probably make the same offer.

thats a common symptom for that model which is usually related to the optical block. Very exspensive repair. Check with a sony authorized repair center as Sony has recognized the problem and offer assistance with certain models yours may be one of the ones affected.

The optical block is defective. Sony sometimes warranties these even after the 1yr warranty has expired. Contact Sony support and have you full model and serial number handy.
