Sounds like a bad solder connection. When you lose video, does the on screen display still work, and if so how about your picture in picture? If no OSD or PIP works then you may be loosing your High Voltage to the picture tubes. Some circuit board assemblies are no longer available from Sony for this model so you may be out of luck if the problem is more than a bad connection.

Colors are separated, double vision in lower right corner.

Oh, yea - another misaligned projection TV. All rear projection TV's seem to eventually get this disease.
Fix: perform a "convergence," which will converge all 3 color projectors to the same point.

How do I stop from getting double pictures on my KP-53XBR200 53 in? And Stop the color green from going of center with the rest of the other colors?

Could be a convergence adjustment from your remote under MENU. (This can be done by you)
Could be a problem in the convergence circuitry. (This can be done a TV tech only)

Five blinks is a video abnormality detection and I am all too familiar with this repair... One or more of the crt's in this unit has a bad set or failing guns in it... You can have a local tech bring out a crt tester and rejuvenate the tube for a temporary stay but it will eventually fail for good and in a short period of time it will be one or the other - - VERY expensive to repair or off to the dump...
Please don't kill the messenger!

SONY rear projection TV - Whites have started looking "snowy"

This is your Picture tubes getting very weak.( low in emission ) You have three in there and I guarantee they are no longer available so I would start thinking about investing in a new set, but use that one until you can't stand it anymore.

if you get a good picture through cable input then

component inputs (should be good)?

5 blinks means AKB detected. Try turning down all 3 screen adjustments slightly.

My tv too had a blue screen problem. Then it started to shut down after staying on for less than a minute. I thought that I would with a huge repair bill but I followed the directions at this link: and now my tv works perfectly.

Long time to power up video

My Sony KP-53XBR200 will not display any video (even from the tuner) except the internal display until it sees a video input on one of the video jacks on the back after a power hit.

I solved this by putting a video cable from Monitor out to Video 4 in (unused for other video). Voilla! Instant video on. This may not be your issue, but it fixed my set!
