We had the free repair from SONY for the blue dots and splotches. It works great now but you need to hurry and contact them as the offer expires I believe in December.

Yes, your optical block ( light engine) is bad. Heat generated by the lamp circuit with its poorly designed ventilation system, cause the LCD panels inside the light engine to fail. They are the size of a postage stamp. There are 3 LCDs, for red, blue, and green. The heat causes them to warp and de-laminate.
Sony has systematically downed played the scope of this issue. It appears however that virtually every LCD projector they make can develop damage in the light engine which is extremely expensive to fix.
I suggest contacting Sony and your state's attorney general's office of consumer complaints asking for action on this.

Light engine and the optical block are I beleive the same thing. This is an expensive repair.
I also own a 60" Sony rear projection (2 years old and so far so good).
Best of luck to you.
