Blue dots in screen . does that mean the lamp is going ?


Hello

I dont know of a good way to tell people bad news. The problem with the blue dots is expensive. A part called the optical block is failing. In general, the optical block takes the red green and blue pictures from the little lcd screens and puts everything togther perfectly. This requires several mirrors, filters, lcds, and parts that I dont even know the names of.

Buying a brand new optical block is a 1000 to 3000 dollar thing. To have the block rebuilt is about 350 dollars.

Sony has been trying to make the customers who purchased these tv's happy by providing extended warrentys, or giving them a special deal on a similar sized new LCD tv.

I would try to complain to sony and see what you can get accomplished. If you do opt to repair the optical block the odds are that it will happen again in a few years. Ebay and the chicago craigs list are where I have seen the guys who are capable of rebuilding those blocks.

I am sorry for the bad news.

Is the sony tv kf-50we610 is a slim panel from the back?


Your TV is a LCD projection TV. It does not have a panel, it uses a optical block in order to project the image onto a mirror and to the screen of the TV.

Blue in lower left corner and blue dots all over screen , Started with one dot and has been steadily progressing to more and more dots.


This is a common failure in Sony Projection LCDs that is known as an optical block problem. The optical block repair is very costly (about $1000-1500 depending on the shop) which is about the cost of a brand new comparable TV as current prices. This issue usually occurs in the TV about 1-4 years after purchase of the TV depending on usage.

Sony has been slowly extending the warranties on certain models but the model you have listed above was not one of the ones that had the warranty extended. I would first call Sony to see if they will at least pay for part of the repair. If not and you still would like to get the TV repaired, you could replace it yourself and save a couple hundred bucks in labor but it is going to be very time consuming because you need to take the whole TV apart to get to the optical block.

If you decide to replace it yourself, the link below has detailed pictures and a guide for optical block replacement along with a overview of the issue you are having with the TV.

Blue points in the screen


This is a recurring problem with this model, along with the 50 and 60 inch models. The problem lies in the Optical block needing replacing. I've heard that Sony, depending on the serial number (or manuf. date), will cover the repair, in some cases, so I would certainly check an authorized Sony service center 1st.
Good luck

Check the optical block repair at sony's warranty website...
Could be the problem they have been covering it under a recall of sorts. $1250 for the optical block and they are only doing it until the end of the year so don't waste any time
