The model you mentioned is covered till March 31, 2009 for warping to the lamp access door and any other damage that may have occured do to the excess heat. See http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/new...10&news_id=261
. You could check for door warping and claim the blue spots are caused by the same problem. Excess heat.
Maybe worth a try
[QU322]I have a 60wE610 that as a blue blob problem. Unfortunately I noticed it about two months after the 6/30/2008 extended warranty expired. And it seems to be getting worse.
Thanks to other threads on this topic I became aware this issue was not unique to me. I made a couple of phone calls to Sony Support and eventually wrote a letter to the Executive Review Committee per the Sony process. Sony made me a trade in offer on a new set. The offer amounts to a 20% discount and you keep the bad set. Unfortunately I really want a 60" screen and Sony only has a 70" for a ridiculous price of $20K, or a 55" for $7K before discount. No way am I giving Sony that much money after this bad experience. Even after the discount you can get the top of the line Samsung LN55A950 for less.
I could get a smaller set and save a couple hundred bucks, but I would also be sacrificing any future potential compensation should a class action law suit be filed. So I'm probably not going to do that either. And again I'd rather be done with Sony as this isn't my only bad experience concerning the reliability of their products.
It seems my choices are to fix the set or go with another brand. Does anyone know if replacing the optical block is a permanent fix, or will the problem reoccur in a few years? I am also tempted to write another letter voicing my displeasure, since there really is no viable 60" replacement right now.
For now I guess I'll study the threads on replacement of the optical block and see what the parts cost is and if I want to take this on myself.[/quote]
