    You said tv shuts off does it try to come on then shut off? It is also very possible you have a defective Tube R/G/B i have replaced a few. You also have a little blue capacitor located right behind hori output Transistor look to see if it is burnt,or has small hole on side of it.1200pf 2Kvs

Hi,
8 times flashes shows error in D board and T8005 Fly-back Transformer, Horizontal Output Transistors, and many more critical parts can be defective / suspected. If you need D board part number, please let me know.

The flyback transformer is defective when the LED flashes 8 times. The FBT is located on the main board(D board).
Location of the part is T8005 and the Sony part number is 1-453-285-41
This part is available from this website.
This type of repair might not be a DIY due to the danger of working with devices that generate high voltages.

I have a 2002 Sony KP-57WS500 that occasionly (randomly?) flashes red lines and then goes to a full screen red while giving an electrical "cracking" sound before shutting down. Once shut down,...


Seems like your RED CRT is shorting out or failing. Do you notice any other colors besides just red having problems? The blinking of the red light eight times is a High voltage error. It could be your D board but I'm thinking it is more likely the red crt is probably shorting out.

Sony kp-57ws500 flashes blue, green, red then turns off


Re-insering the flyback wire is usually very easy. Push in and give a slght turn and check to see if grabbed. It sounds as if there is more issues than flyback wire. TV should turn on without one crt connected
