I have the same problem with my KDF-60XS955,but I just replaced the 3 year old original Jan, 2010. Then the optical block starting going bad(Blue blobs)about 3 months after that.I called Sony support and was informed that my tv build date of October 2005 put me out of warranty,and since I didn't register my Sony product even the extended warranty that Sony put on their problematic 3LCD tv's was of NO use. All I wanted was an optical block repair or replace solution. I then bought a used light engine from a private seller.I have the factory service manual on my model and it was very informative,so I installed the optical block myself and was like new. I did notice that it didn't turn on as quick as it used to,and the first time I turned it on after the optical block install the error code flashed for lamp.I removed the lamp itself so I thought that I had not shut the lamp access door tightly or the bulb was loose,both were good I checked. I turned it back on and it worked ever since,but took what I deemed to be way to long too turn on.Sometimes would flash a lamp error code I would shut the tv off then turn it back on after the fans stopped,and it would start working.Until this morning,I turned it on and NO picture,NO sound at all!! The green power light flashes as it would at normal startup but does this for about 60 sec, then the power led goes to a constant red,and the lamp led flashes constantly with NO pauses.It will do this until it is shut off. Is my 6 month old lamp already bad? Picture quality has been top notch,wouldn't there be a fore warning of bulb failure? I am a full time student,and I don't have the funds to replace.I would like to keep it going for another 3 years until I graduate. Any feedback would be appreciated to NO end!! Thanks beforehand, Charlie
