    The dots are white, it looks like a connect the dots into squares game. It happens many times but it is unpredictable. Occasionally it can be a good picture but mostly it is with the dots.

    Thanks for your response!!

    This is a Common Problem with Sony Bravia.You need to Replace DMD Module. The DMD is available for about $150 cost, about $200 retail.The hard part is going to be a shop that will repair and replace only the DMD module, not the entire Optical Engine.Usually most of the Shops would replace Optical Engine which is Really Costly and not Advisable. If unable to Find DMD Module, contact SONY and complain regarding the Optical Engine Problem.You could search on google and check, if there is an Recall for the same.This has been an issue with most of the Sony Sets.I always advise the Customers to Go for Extended Warranty, if Possible as these Parts are not Serviceable and needs Replacement which could cost many bucks.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I am getting a blue line on my scans when utilizing the feeder

The feeder sends the original across a small piece of glass. The scanner stays in one position as the paper runs across it rather than the scanner moving and paper staying still. The little piece of glass is probably a 1/2 inch by 12 inch glass. just clean that strip of glass. use alcohol. there is probably some whiteout on the glass. It will appear as a dot. When the paper runs across it, the dot is run across the whole page causing the line. if you cant find the strip of glass, run a scan and try to see where the scan light sits while it's running. Clean everywhere where the light sits.

Columns of tiny red dots fill my screen

sorry to tell you, I do repairs on LCD screens. And the issue your having is with the lcd part of the whole monitor itself, or the image processor is failing. More often than not, its impossible to find a replacement part to change out in this case. And should you take it to a repair shop, it will cost more to diagnose, order part, and labor repais than if you just got a new one. Hope

I have been having the same problem. It started as constant white dots obscuring the menu but as you hardly use the menu I left it. Then I had a row of white dots 5 dots high all the way across the screen about two thirds of the way up. This only happened on Ext1 and Ext 2. I tried 3 different Scart and A/V cables in ALL the possible connections in the back and still I got the dots. This has gradually got worse and I now have a screen full of flashing dots. With it being out of Warranty (18 month old) I have been referred to a company to repair it.
Estimated cost £263.37 inc VAT  Diagnosis: Needs a new PCB board Time to fix: 1 week
I shall update once I know more/final cost, on Wednesday.
In future I shall be taking the extended warranty out. :o(
