What do I need to do to have this fixed? It is slowly getting worse and more dead pixels are appearing.

Its the Optical Block. It will cost more to fix than the tv is worth. Mine OB just went out and if you do the research its all over the internet. Sony is getting sued over this issue, so right now if you call Sony they are offering replacement tv's with huge discounts (2010 models) in order to get you off the class action lawsuit. Just call them and let them know the issue and right off the bat they will tell you its the OB. Then they will make you an offer no matter if you are out of warranty. Check out the link below there is a huge facebook page about the issue.

You might also want to swing past the 60xs955/55xs955 avs forum. There's a guy in there who claims to be able to rebuilt the OBs.

He may, or may not, be able to do yours if you decide that the tv is worth saving.

Caveat time. I don't own my 60xs anymore, never had any issues and have not used this service.

Edit: This guy, in this thread:

Those 72" XBR sets came with a HEFTY early adopter tax, it may be worth repairing. Still nice sets.
