optical block

  • Summary: I purchased a Sony KDF-42WE655 in either 2004-2005. I now have blue dots on the screen. I was told by Sony that this may be a problem with the optical block. Apparently after doing some research Sony has a problem with some of their TV's having this problem.

You might get a few good years out of it.

A. Arrocha, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: I paid A LOT of money for this tv 4 years ago, so I expected it to last. Last it is not. The screen is slowing being covered in blue. The cause is unknown to us and to Sony and cannot be fixed, so the only suggestion Sony will give is to replace it.
