Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have a similar problem... can you help me?
I really need some help with my 4 year old KP-51WS510... The TV was working fine until for about 6 months ago.. The the following started to happen.
1) for the past 6 months, when I turn on the TV, the picture does not fill in for several minutes. Only 1/2 the picture screen fills in (showing the full image, but on 1/2 the screen gradually filling into the whole screen). The picture is a bit distorted. Looked like a smile towards the bottom of the screen. After 5 minutes or so, the picture filled in completely and everything was OK until today’s changes.
2) Now, in addition to what I described above, the picture just became extremely magenta-ish in color. I can see the image completely and the TV is viewable, however it has an extreme magenta-ish hue. Also, it flickers quite a bit and there are greenish lines going across the tv. The picture is completely viewable with no distortion issues once the TV is warmed up. The indicator light above the power light on the TV blinks 5 times.
Any ideas on what might be wrong and how to fix it? I’m pretty handy, please let me know what components need to be replaced on how the repair should be completed. Also – Please provide me sources for the parts. I would appreciate any info regarding service manuals etc.

You need a green CRT thats whay you have the white kind of concave lines with the green screen. You can try adjusting the green screen control but you need anew CRT ( tube) the speaker cover has two plastic plugs that get removed on the lower edge os the grille which covers the two screws that hold the grille on. If you need more assistancr or where to get a green CRT let me know as I have a link that has some green and red Tubes for your model.
