Sony model kp-51ws500

We have a Sony model kp-51ws500 it is a 2002 model. We have had no problems before but turned the set on this morning and the picture was light green that turned into a light blue and the power shuts off.

    Yes...here's what happens...



    TV turns on and is "normal" for only a few brief moments.

    Then it flickers several times as it turns into blank blue screen and powers off by itself.



    Had this problem a few months ago. It seemed to "correct itself" for awhile and is now back.



    Any ideas how costly this repair is?

    My screen gets a green tint when watching all programs. Sometimes it goes away but does come back. Sometimes it will get a green flash, then turn itself off. Please help!

You have all three projection tubes that are failing. This was a common issue for this year. Depending on serial number 2 of the 3 CRT's (green and blue) are no longer available. They will have to be pulled and rebuilt.

If all you CRTs are failing, I would definitely recommend replacing the old TV with a new LCD or LED TV. you can buy them in that 51"+ size economically today. That money would be better spent on a new TV rather than a 13 year old TV that has many of its parts NO Longer Available.

Sony faded colours and double lines


You probably need to replace the convergence IC's and do a good cleaning of the internal mirror and lens. This repair will involve soldering and un-soldering on the printed circuit board. If you have no printed circuit board repair experience, play it safe, and have a pro do this repair for you as that price sounds reasonable for this type of repair. Good luck!
