Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Sony dp-51ws510 made 11-03

Yesterday when I turned my tv on - the unit turned on with no picture but had audio. The set only remained on for approx 5-10 seconds before turning off on its own. It was showwing a fault code of 4 blinks then a pause then 4 more blinks. This continued for 2 hours. I unplugged the unit multiple times to try resetting it but had no luck. Today when I got home from work I turned the set on and the sound and picture came on and remained on but the picture was distorted and had shades of green and red throught the screen.

Can anyone tell me what problem I might have and if it is worth fixing this tv or not. Please help - Best Buy told me the bulb must be burnt out today but that idea went out the window with me today when I received a picture.

If your tv is Sony KP-51WS510, then it has problem in convergence ICs or Board and needs to be replaced.
Best Buy has no idea about Bulb, this TV is 3 CRTs rear projection system and has no Bulb or Lamp inside.
Need further help, let me know.

I just turn my tv on and it it has red and green outlines around everything and the picture is a bite wavy. work find yesterday


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Tv turns on for 5 seconds no picture and shuts off.. red light blinks 8 times


hello. problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

Our Sony Grand Wega suddenly has a green-yellow tint.


IF IT IS HOOKED UP WITH COMPONENT CABLES (GREEN, RED, AND BLUE) FOR PICTURE AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO, MOST LIKELY THE RED ONE IS NOT SEATED PROPERLY, CHECK BOTH ENDS THE ONE CONNECTED TO THE TV AND THE ONE CONNECTED TO WHATEVER THE SOURCE IS ( SATELLITE BOX, CABLE BOX ETC.

Sony e55a20 tries to turn on then flashes pwr light in sets of 6


Really sorry to say but you need a tv repair man. This unit has something wrong internally. Also there is usually a reset button on the back of the tv. This is your only other option. try resetting the tv, if there is not button on the back hold the power button for at least 1 minute.

Sony KP-51HW40


I had the same problem with mine 2 years ago (TV was 1.5 years old at that time) I had extended warranty on TV and it was fixed by Sony at no cost to me. Now yesterday I have another problem with it. All of a sudden screen went BLUE. No Sound either. It could be the CRT (That's what I read here) Out of luck this time. Will call local Repair shop (70 miles away) and see how much it will cost to fix it. Good luck.
