Blinking of the lamp light indicates that the lamp has to be replaced. However, the blue spots may be due to the optical block issue. To confirm this try connecting a different video source and check.

Difficult to address the black screen problem without diagnosis but the blue discoloration is definitely a bad optical engine. Sony extended warranty coverage for this until June of 2010 but no more. Cost of the part is around $900 so I wouldn't pursue any further repair.

Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team at 1-239-768-7547 and ask for the recall issue Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues previously. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Blue haze and dull yellow patches on screen


The light engine in your set has gone belly up. It is a very expensive repair. Good news is that on a whole bunch of models like yours Sony has extended the waranty on the light engine. Check with a local authorized Sony service center and give them the model & serial number and you might get a free ride. If I were a betting man I'd take odds on 'you're in luck'. LOL
