Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

TV quit working and power light flashes.

The TV started (about 3 months ago) having trouble holding color. If it was turned off and on several times it would finally hold color. Over time this took longer and longer to work. Finally this no longer helped and now when it is turned on the picture fades to blue after about 30-45 seconds, it turns off and the power light flashes 8 times.

On that TV 8 times means, Diagnosis: High voltage error. Possible cause: T8005 is faulty. (D board)

Use Sony's website help you find the nearest certified sony repair dealers and you can call and ask how much they will charge tell them model number and flash code. Nothing safe about doing that yourself you can hurt yourself or damage the TV further. Hope this answered your question as to what the problem is and a solution.

I have read another solution which may indicate the light engine has failed and will likely need replacing. The cost is quite expensive. $1500 range and apparently the part is no longer available from LG. Best you might do is get an estimate to repair just to be sure.

Mitsubishi WD-62525 TV will not turn on


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it for a samsung ,it works like your mitusibishi:http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php The ballast has a sensor that detects when it's not able to power the lamp or if lamp is not responding,it will flash red when that sensor detects that.When you say: "it began to roll like the vertical and horizontal hold did not work then the sound went out" Do you mean you where getting horizontal lines? If you did that could be the Dmd.his is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Usually when there's a green light it could indicate a problem with the power supply,sometimes some capacitors do go bad. Check all of this and comment on this answer to see how it went.

I hope you have a service plan for this set. Most likely--the CRT"s are going bad. This was a VERY common problem for Sony sets of this age. the CRT tubes SHOULD last a long time...BUT Sony had a BUNCH of the tubes that had 'contamination" on the cathodes of the guns...and after a few years..this 'flakes off" and shorts out the tubes. There WAS a recall on these a couple of years ago, but I am not sure about it now. You will need ALL 3 tubes to fix this problem. If it was me...I would try and find out if there is any way to get Sony to cover it..., if the set is not more than about 8years old.

Nonstop blinking is likely a DM or format board - format board most likely. I have rebuilt several of these by simply replacing all the caps, about 70 of them, and takes about two hours start to finish... But this set does need to boot. It takes about 70 seconds of flashing green light before you're able to press the power button - even when everthing is working as it should..
Hope this helps!

Samsung HLP 4663W DLP TV


If you have already replaced the lamp and ballast, to no avail, then it is time to take it in to a certified repair center.  Most will charge a nominal diagnostic fee.  My 61" did the same thing and it turned out to be the Light Engine (of which the DMD Board is a part).
If the problem were the color wheel, the lamp would come on for a bit until the color wheel sync couldn't be achieved and then it would turn off.  The all-3-flashing-lights problem is the lamp.  Here is a page from the service manual on the 3 blinking lights problem.  
The Light Engine controls the ballast via a separate signal than the 320 Volts.  The voltage reading means that the Power Board is working properly.

We have the same DLP set and had the same problem. The Color Wheel, P/N BP96-00250A, a $200 part needs replacement to eliminate your problem.
