Fly back Transformer is working that's why you get picture for 30 seconds etc. If its bad, TV wont show you any light on screen. (glow of 3 CRTs)
Let me know about Blue screen symptoms, when TV got high blue picture, is there few retrace lines appear on screen? If yes, then replaced blue gun is bad.( cathode got shorted with TV ground )

MC,

8 blinks mean that the T8005 is defective more than likely the transformer, which is located on board D. This is a High Voltage device unless you are experienced and comfortable with dealing with High voltage I would recommend you have a technician assist you. As a shock from this could potentially be fatal.

That being said, I would check in the scrap TV you got on craigs list and see if the board "D" in that unit is in good shape. If so try swapping them. If not you can purchase a new one at the site listed below. just click the link.

Try to check first for any damge capacitor o the board. also check for any bad soldered on that area..

check the continuity before you replace that flyback.

How do I fix the convergance on a sony 57" rear projection tv. Just started to look 3D the other day when turned on.flash focus does not help.


Get an ESR capicitor meter and check for dry or blown caps on the convergence board - replace the 2 convergence ICs (but ONLY do this if you are electronics qualified - or get a tech to do it). Clean the lenses of the tubes - these come completely apart and you can change the fluid too - usually this is a $250 per tube job (there are 3 tubes) for a tech but you can do this and replace the fluid yourself which will clean up the fuzzyness. Then reconverge and do the flash focus for all zooms (you may have to do this several times).

Here is a link too for the service manual which details how to converge your set - http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/Ws500/

Ghost and red


Sounds like the TV needs major convergence alignment and possibly a a full color scale adjustment. Projection TV's have the most alignment issues. Since I don't know manufacturer I can only give you general ideas. Most projection TV's have either auto or manual alignments which can be accesed through the menu. However the adjustments may be tricky to get to. Once convergence is done if video is still red you will need to get in the TV and set up biasing levels on each tube. Hopefully the tubes are just slightly degraded and can be readjusted for a nice quality image.
I suggest finding a local guy and asking him to possibly do a quick a;ignment for a fixed price.
Good luck

BLUE SCREEN


I got this Sony KP-57WS500 57 in TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
