The tv went onto standby and I cannot get it to work. It is approx 6 years old and I remember when I bought it I was told that the bulb would go after a few years. Is that it, and can it be replaced and what cost?

Google the model number to locate it with "lamp" and You Tube has video instructions for replacing in most models--lamp has a 2,000 hour or 2 year average life and is meant to be replaceable by the customer who owns the set.

Hi,
Your TV requires service and cleaning of screen, mirror and 3 lenses (of CRTs) as looks dusty.
Below is an exploded view how to take off front beznet assembly of this TV to clean inside with moist cotton cloth.
Unplug TV before taking off front of TV.

SOURCE: sony kp-51ws510 tv blinking light 6 flashes on timer/standby

6 blinks on your model means the +5V line is either overloaded or shorted on the A or B board. You can get replacement boards at the following link and they will assist you in determining which board of the two you actually may need.

SOURCE: Sony kp-46wt520 rear projection tv: standby light flashes

Two things here.

1) This is a CRT based set so there is no "lamp" involved.
2) The standby light should be blinking a repeated count of blinks with a 2 second pause between counts. Please report the exact count here. This will indicate the circiut in which a problem was detected.

With the above information, we can provide you with a more detailed description of the problem as well as the likely solutions and cost.

Thanks,
Dan

yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.

You can't upgrade a panel tv, plasma or LCD.You may have had a plasma panel failure,I sell LG tv's and for the panel to go bad is rare but I have had it happen approx.6 times in the past 5 years.I highly recommend contacting LG"s customer service they will stand behind the panel and get you going again.Good luck!

Red light blinks 3 times


When the senior service tech changed our bulb, I watched very carefully, and he said there is an electrical contact towards the rear of where the bulb goes in that bends very easily and that care is required not to damage or bend that connector. His assistant tech then bent the thing, and the senior tech had to straighten it out properly. All the while, he talked about how delicate this connector is. Hope this is helpful to you. It sounds like what he was talking about.
