Pamjenkins72,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you have an optical engine going bad, and when it happens in a Sony it is very expensive to replace. Your units optical block part number is A-1084-658-A and the cost is $620.00 US.

If you want to go ahead with the repair anyway, I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4251975-replace_dlp_light_engine which explains the problem, where to get the parts at the best price and how to perform the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Can a blue dot on a tv screen get worse or stay the same.


One little blue dot is not enough to warranty the television. If you read all the documents on the set, it will tell you that some imperfections in the display are allowed. The good news is that it wont get any worse

Hello, Sounds like an LVDS Cable or T-con Board.
Usually this will slowly get worse until it is repaired. It is caused by a failing T-con (Control) Board or connecting cable. T-Con Will Need replacement. This picture show's more extreme T-con board failures

How to put up a tent- ozark trails 16x12


I have this tent and have successfully put it up a few times. It's a big tent but it's frustrating to put up sometimes. Plan on having several people to help you. I find that it greatly helps if there are a total of 3-4 of you.
The poles are color coded. The center support are red rods. The two side supports are blue with the graphite looking rod that goes through the tent.
Spread the tent out on the ground and try to square it up and make it even. Run the center pole through the top and connect to the curved pieces which then connect to red dot poles on the side. Hoist the whole thing up. Have two people hold those poles for a while.
Get the bue poles into the black couplings and put the graphite looking rod through the tent. It will be a little tight. Hoist the blue poles into position. The bottom of the blue dot poles should be about two feet from the center. They extend outwards at about a 30 degree angle. Keep your center people holding the center poles and let the two blue dot pole section extend outwards. You'll start to see a tent shape. Your center holder people may need to keep and eye on the poles.
Now, start trying to get some stakes in. Work the corners. Once those are in and things start getting tight, it should start to hold on its own. Work all the stakes in and make adjustments to all the poles as necessary.
Extend the red dot poles up until the roof is at the proper height. I tend to do this last.
The fly basic basically clips on into holes on the blue dot poles.
It's kind of a pain to set up but its a big tent and works well once it is up. Good luck.
I took a ton of pictures after I got it up the first time. As I took it down, I shot the pictures. Then, I reverse the order and printed them to a book and now sort of use that as my manual.
Have fun.

Blue section (corner) and blue dots


This set has no internal manual adjustments for color. The Tracking or B&W balance is accessed via the service menu. I don't suggest you attempt to adjust without instrumentation. the trouble with your set is not an adjustment. Most likely the Optics are at fault. This model has had issues with filters in the optics being destroyed over time by the lamp. The blue haze will get worse and continue to grow over the whole picture. The only option is to remove the Optics (light engine) and sent it out to be rebuilt.

Kf-42610 blue hue and blue dots on screen


Hi Guys

The Blue dots or discolouration you are seeing is due too the Blue LCD screen having cracked from excessive heat. This normally happens when you have a power failure while the Television was on. This obviously because the Blue LCD sits next to the lamp - the main cause of heat. The correct part number on the 60" is A-1086-952-A. It is very, very ,expensive.

Sorry to have been the bearer of bad news. Good luck : )

Blue dots


You have a bad blue LCD in the light engine. Replacement of the light engine is the only fix and it usually will continue to get worse over time
