Turn on very briefly and make sure the large red wire that entered the block is well away from any metal---if hear a frying sound and blink sequence is gone the block is bad( I used to put the wire into a old soda bottle as it has over 20 thousand volts coming out of it, much like the spark plug wires in a car---high voltage with low current.

SOURCE: Sony KP57WS510 Blinking 8 times

You have a strt up problem. I found, in a similiar Sony Big Screen a couple of fixes. First thing to try is unplug the set from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in and retry the set. If this corrects the problem, I suggest you purchase a good ( Not a 5 dollar piece of junk) surge protector. ( One rated at 500-1500 joules. A good surge protector may prevent future processor lock ups. If this doesn't correct the problem, the problem lies in the circuit boards of the set. I found one problem in a Sony like you describe had a bad convergence chip and a burned resistor in the same board. Good Luck

SOURCE: convergence chip

Convergence ICs cost around 15-25 each there are only two of them. I would go ahead and replace both of them because if one goes the other one will follow shortly. I would make sure that it is just the convergence IC not something else, and if its over five years old dont pay more than $500.

SOURCE: Sony wide screen projection tv model kp-57wv600.

I found this solution from SONY's website.

The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.


I hope this helps.

TV turns red,shuts off, stand-by light blinking 8Times


Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

If the flyback is bad, the 135 volts will reach about 70 or 80 volts and the set will shut down, and the LED will blink twice. Usually, for 8 blinks, the high voltage capacitor inisde the splitter is shorted, and an easy test for this is to disconnect the thin gray ground wire, move it away from everything else and turn the set on. The set will now run but the ground wire will hiss like crazy. If you replaced the splitter but the set will not run, try disconnecting the 3 high voltage wires to the CRT's and see if the set runs. If it does, reconnect the high voltage wires one by one until you find which CRT is loading down the high voltage. Let me know how you make out.
