My KP-51HW40 clicks off after running for a period. The red power light blinks when it goes off but screen stays dark. When TV is shut off for a while it restarts and runs fine. The "On"...

KP-51HW40 shuts off due to incorrect white balance and blue arch lines is an evidence of that incorrect white balance. I hope tv standby red light would flashing 5 times then 3 seconds pause and again 5 times when tv shuts down.
This is rear projection tv that has three picture tubes (red-green-blue) inside to generate picture that projected at front screen. These three picture tubes must be drive with correct drive voltage to produce good picture of each color.
Solution for your tv problem is Screen Voltage adjustment that can be done easily if you are handy with electronics stuff repair.
Let me know your expertise level to guide you more and if you feel unconformable by tv repair then local tv repairman will help you to adjust white balance in tv.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional questions.

Thin red line, green line and yellow line going across the screen

the problem is vertical collapse,i am not so sure you can trouble shoot this on your own but you can send the board to eithor pts electronics or tristate module for repair
to get a price get the number off the sticker--left hand board(looking from the back) it will start CTC195---- write down entire number before you call them

The red picture tube is bad, you must replace before it cause damage to the boards.

Thin vertical lines

Those lines are called retrace lines. They are there all the time on projection TVs but you should be able to see them. When you do see them, that's an indication that the kine screen settings are too high or the supply voltage to the kine driver circuit is low or missing. There is a small, black control unit located behind the speaker grill assy in the front of the TV that has 2 sets of 3 controls. A red, blue, and green focus and screen controls. See if you can make the lines dissappear by turning the screen controls counterclockwise. If you can't you'll need to have service come out to troubleshoot it.

Sony turns on and off again

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.

Your red CRT socket may be loose or have cracked solder if not, try turning down the red gun screen control inside the set just a little. Youre experienceing what is known as retrace lines

What is this?

Likely to have a bad high voltage transformer: white square thing with large red wire coming out and possible horizontal output transistor maybe C5148: on metal heat sink behind transformer. Must use original transformer Average cost $300.00 according to which repairman. Be sure picture was good before it went out!
