The light engine (the projector part of tv) is failing. A common problem, but very expensive as you have to replace the entire engine, can't be repaired. Check with Sony to see if this model is still under their extended warranty or not. If so they'll fix it for free, if not be prepared to pay several hundred dollars at the least. At that point you'd probably be better off buying a new TV.

White dots in plasma tv


The only thing you can try is to adjust the tiny control on the Y board, if you want to try do this. Open the set , set it up so you can watch it with the back off. now looking at the back on the left side you will see a circuit board larger connected to a smalled one or two that go to the screen edge . on the larger board look for a few small controls, mark their positions with a dark sharpy then turn each a little while looking at the dots to see if one makes them better or worse. If one control effects the dots try to center it for the least amount of dots, if no effect is observed when a control is turned return it the original position that you mark before starting. if the dots do not clear either the Y board is bad or the whole scfreen is defective.

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.
