momkennedy13,

You have the fatal Sony KDF optical engine issue. Sony has had most if not all these models fail prematurely. The solution is to replace the optical engine. The problem is they are not available as a new unit only a repaired unit so the problem will no doubt reappear in the future. Many people have had success with contacting the Sony customer service representatives and can usually get them to sell you a new unit for a couple hundred dollars. For my money that would be the best way for you to go. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r7851924-sony_projector_yellow_or_blue_dots which explains the problem and offers solutions.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I have a permanent blue light encroaching the picture on the lower left corner of our sony kdf-60xs955 60". Replaced the bulb recently.


The Optical Block is probably the cause of the problem. I am not sure if it is still a Recall issue but due to the cost of the repair, I recommend you call Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if they can assist
in the cost of repairs and also to help locate a Service Facility to confirm the symptom.
I hope this helps,

KDF-60XS955 Blue dots all over screen. Lower left corner of screen has a small blue cone shape. Will a new bulb fix this? If yes how do I replace the bulb?


It is problem of light engine (optical block) in TV and Lamp replacement does not solve it.
TV needs replacement of light engine, that is costly part.

Please help-question about sony optical blocks


Talk to Sony about the blue blob issue, they may still replace the optical block for free.

If not, fix the blinking light TV.

Blink Codes
3X - Lamp cover not installed correctly, usually after lamp change, or cover detect switch is bad.
4X - Check fans (one or more failed to pass RPM test during power on diagnostics)
5X - Lamp ballast (power supply)
6X - Usually the thermal fuse - usually from inadequate air flow (fans dusty)

All other codes usually require a trained technician to diagnose and repair.
