Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television
Picture turns blue, then TV shuts off. Standby light flashes 8 times. I removed back panel and maintained room temperature @ 70 degrees. TV stays on longer.
I too, took off the back of my Sony TV after I started getting red and green shadows (called retrace lines) around words and people; and blew out all the dust inside hoping that would help. Ironically, I discovered that most problems with rear projection TVs are due to a malfunction located in the bottom FRONT panel, accessed by taking off the front speaker panel and then a wooden panel after that to access the circuitry, specifically this little black box with 6 screws on it. Go to www.SomeLifeBlog.com and this site has photos how to take off the front of the tv and instructions how to fix some common problems that repair people will charge you $300-500 to fix. This man, his instructions, photos, and website were a godsend. Good luck.
