This blue dots problem is due to defective blue lcd and related uv filters/ polarizers in optic block (light engine) and optic block will be replace to fis that issue.
It would be costly fix and an experienced tech is needed to do the job. You can expect $1000 repair cost.
Thanks.

    I have the same POS TV from Sony. Mine is getting the blue dots also. I paid $2,200.00 for that top of the line TV that Sony claimed would last forever with bulb changes every few years. I will never buy another Sony product. These people are thieves! I HATE SONY!!!!

The optical block is most likely causing the problem. It will continue to get worse. Sony may help with the repair since they have had a lot of problems over the years with their optical blocks across many models. On the older sets they usually only help with the parts cost. The average repair cost for a optical block replacement is $1200.00 to $1500.00. So if they help with the parts cost it really brings the cost down. Their customer service number is 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,

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.

Blue dots in KDF-60WF655


Yes, your optical block ( light engine) is bad. Heat generated by the lamp circuit with its poorly designed ventilation system, cause the LCD panels inside the light engine to fail. They are the size of a postage stamp. There are 3 LCDs, for red, blue, and green. The heat causes them to warp and de-laminate.

Sony has systematically downed played the scope of this issue. It appears however that virtually every LCD projector they make can develop damage in the light engine which is extremely expensive to fix.

I suggest contacting Sony and your state's attorney general's office of consumer complaints asking for action on this.
