Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television
When tv is turned on, screen turns green and then shuts itself off. Light on front of tv blinks 8 times.
I did a last minute search to do the repair myself before I called somebody. I found this and figured "This will never work!"
I followed his suggestion and now my TV looks better than it has in months!!! I'M SO RELIEVED!!!! Although I really want to upgrade to a flat screen LCD or PLASMA but I'm not ready for the expensive. I have had this SONY for about 6 years!!

I'm 58 years old. Have had red lines forever. Tonight turned tv on and it faded to blue.Kept on shutting off Red led light flashed 8 times Read your info. Decided I had nothing to lose. I actually fixed it myself. Probably just a quick short time fix but I'm happy tonight. I guess I'll start looking for new TV. Don't know if I'll go with another Sony. I've this one for 5 years. Should last longer than that (I think)

Its unbelievably easy to fix. there are 2 screws holding the front speaker cover on (there are plugs covering the screws that you take out first).Unscrew and reove speaker cover(you got to give it a bit of a tug to get it off ) then remove the piece of wood cover held by 4 screws .. Once you have taken that off when you look down you will see 6 screw like adjusters with a white painted mark on them (do not touch top row ) the green is controlled by the bottom middle screw ,, witha screwdriver turn it counter clockwise (to the left) ever so slightly (1-3mm)and there you have your TV back .. when the screen turns red use the bottom right screw and blue bottom left screw.. I hope this helps
