You have a bad Optical Block. Because of the cost involved with the part, ( around 800.00), I would contact Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if the could help in the cost of the repair. This model series has had many issues with this symptom and Sony has been willing to help but I do not know how long they will continue to do it.
I hope this helps,

Can a blue dot on a tv screen get worse or stay the same.


One little blue dot is not enough to warranty the television. If you read all the documents on the set, it will tell you that some imperfections in the display are allowed. The good news is that it wont get any worse

White arcs across screen when the screen is dark or black.


Replace a color gun in your KP51HW40. Then adjust the picture brightness to eliminate these rings by turning a little button behind the front (cloth like) panel (the one covering the front bottom half of the set). You may have to to dim the lights to be able to do that properly. The little dial button as is in the middle.

Blue section (corner) and blue dots


This set has no internal manual adjustments for color. The Tracking or B&W balance is accessed via the service menu. I don't suggest you attempt to adjust without instrumentation. the trouble with your set is not an adjustment. Most likely the Optics are at fault. This model has had issues with filters in the optics being destroyed over time by the lamp. The blue haze will get worse and continue to grow over the whole picture. The only option is to remove the Optics (light engine) and sent it out to be rebuilt.

The is a very small blue dot on my Canon xti screen


It can be regarded as normal, yes. All LCD screens will have a percentage of dead pixels, and no manufacturer will guarantee you get a dead-pixel screen on their products.

As you say it does not affect your photos and you can be assured it is not something that is going to get worse - it is a tiny manufacturing defect that is all, but within what they call acceptable limits.

If the camera is brand new you could always take it back and ask for another one, but they are within their rights (I believe) to say no for a single dead pixel.

HDTV is getting blue dots and the right side has turned blue


These issues are problems in the light engine (optics block)
the dots are called "starfield" and the geometric is "roadmap"
replacing the light engine will fix the issue. for awhile, sony was extending the warrany on the engine for these issues only, but that may have expired.

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 : )

Blue dots


You have a bad blue LCD in the light engine. Replacement of the light engine is the only fix and it usually will continue to get worse over time
