Ok.

this problem is usually related to the power to the blue gun. (this is a little complicated, even for a TV tech). it provides the blue overlay for the image.

you can also try to unplugg the cable for at least 4 hours, then it will (usually) reset all the voltages.

the last thing you can do is call a repair technitian to check the solder joints if they are "cold soldered", the circuit boards are defective or if there is a short. This should only be attempted if you are EXPERIENCED in electronics. the average cost to have a tech come and fix it is $400+ AND even then he/she will recommend sending the TV to a repair center, which then adds transportation cost. That may not be an option, considering there are new TVs out that cost double of the repair.

These are the logical solutions to your problem. If these do not appeal to you, Sony can also help you at 1-800-222-7669 or 1-888-772-7669 or https://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/contact-email.pl?


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.

My Sony TV shuts down after you get a bright flash of light from the screen. After it shuts down, the red LED light on the front flashes 8 times. What's the problem?

51ws500 sony shuts down and standby light flashes 8 times


Eight blinks points to an audio output problem. The 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.

Hope that helps.

Red stand by light blinks 8 or 9 times and no picture or sound


hello 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.Nine blinks - Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not resolder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).

Sony kp51 ws500 red screen, 8 blinks


The 8 blinks is pointing to a bad flyback transformer and may be common with this set. (We have one too.)


High voltage error -- blinks 8 times • T8005 is faulty. (D board)
