It's more than likely the optical blocks needs a replacement, about $1,100 to include labor... ouch. i have the same problem, luckily Sony is fixing this problem for free. Go to the following link and it will tell you. http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?mdl=KDF60WF655&news_id=20

basically when i call sony, they just asked me questions like, have you tried disconnecting it and resetting it. do you use cable or antenna. when did you buy and where. then they get your name, number and adress and find you the local authorize repair person. they will analized and verify that it is that problem and they'll give you instructions on how to get sony to fix it. I haven't call the authorized repair man yet, i'll do that tomorrow (2/11/2008). Good luck, i hope this helped.

How do i tell when the lamp needs replacement? I have little blue dots all over the center of the screen like a constellation that keeps getting more dense. would this go away if i replace the bulb?


I haven’t actually worked on this model, but I can tell you that the problem is NOT the lamp. You asked how you can tell when the lamp needs replacement, on the front there is a indictor labeled “lamp.” It will be flashing when the lamp does need replacement.

Being a LCD (quite like the LCD on your computer) over time you can develop bad Pixels. I am sorry I don’t have a fix for you, but I do hope you invested in the extended service plan on this one.
Best of luck to you!

Some of the ICs on the power supply block are damaged. This can possibly due to high voltage or defective IC. What you can do now is to get a new PS block. If you can get me the part number i can help you find it..

Sony kf-60we610 stand by blinks 5 times


Hey there,
I've had my Sony KF-50WE610 for approx. 4years now and have just experienced the prob you described (though I didn't think to count the number of red blinks). I called Sony TV technical support (888-772-7669, #3 for TV/digital cameras, #1 for TV, then #1 again I think). They said that if the power/standby light blinks 5x, that means there's something wrong with the lamp driver and service will be required. Needless to say, I better go home and count my red blinks! Good luck, I hope this helps a bit. Have a happy and safe holiday!

This sounds like an issue with the optical block assembly. Sony had a problem with this part in a lot of the KF-series television.

They extended the warranty of optical blocks in the KF-42WE620, which doesn't help you but from what your saying this sounds like the issue.

KF 42WE610 turns on for two seconds, then goes black


no, had the same problem. Its the lamp ballast also called the lamp power block. It supplies power to the lamp, any how some repair shop wanted $450 to fix it, so i ordered the part from sony, part #146879816 ($116.25), trust me this is the part I double checked with many different places. Any how fixed it my self took about 15 minutes, just take the back cover off and the part is right there just kind of follow the screws and the 3 wires, super easy job, I suggest you replace the bulb at the same time, dont by a cheap bulb just get it from sony

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 : )

Purple scribbly lines it left hand corner of tv screen


if the lines on your screen looks anything like the image below, you do have a problem with the lcd, problem is you need to replace what is called the light engin. unfortunatly the price of this part is just about as much as a new replacement tv. Get a sceond opinion fron a sony service center near you, as i cannot see your picute. good luck
