You have all three projection tubes that are failing. This was a common issue for this year. Depending on serial number 2 of the 3 CRT's (green and blue) are no longer available. They will have to be pulled and rebuilt.

SOURCE: sony tv red flashes

LED flashes of 8 times are indicative of a "High Voltage Error" which means something along the lines of "T8005 is faulty. (D board)" according to the service manual. Most likely it will need a professional to look at it. A link to the service manual is here: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

tvrepairguy,

I am not sure what you are asking by a blue video image. For the past yearish there had been a blue tint to the picture when viewing. Recently it got worse--as I stated in the problem, after 10 seconds, the screen starts tinting blue and by 20 seconds or so, the entire screen is blue (no visible picture at this point).

After this happened, I did take the back rectangular panel off to watch the projectors during this 20 second phenomena. When the tv is first turn on the green, red, and blue were on. After 10 seconds the red and green faded out leaving only the blue on (the red and green went dark). IE. the same time that the picture of course turns completely blue.

SOURCE: Sony KP-51WS500 Rear Projection TV colors are distorted.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

I have a Sony kp-51ws500 that shuts off and blinks 8 times, I'v read that some other people have had the same thing and it was the flyback transformer. Now my tv has just a green screen with no pi


No, the set is prone among other things to issues with the three picture tubes, go to unused video input----screen should be black with only the input label displayed-----in your case with Green screen and or slight diagonal trace lines (if there) the Green screen control itself needs to be adjusted slightly down.

I can tell you if you want how to do that---requires only a screwdriver and 10 minutes.

I have a Sony rear projection tv model KP-51WS500. It has had some fine green lines across the screen, but today it has started to fade to green after being on for a few seconds, then truns off. Any...


It sounds like the focus pack needs to be replaced (p/n 122392535) and re-adjusted. The re-adjusting could be the tricky part if you haven't done these before.

Screen turns red then shuts off


Sounds like a bad red projection tube, disconnect red tube socket and try again if tv stays on reconnect tube soket and adjust screen controls on front of tv under the front panel which you will have to remove to do any of this. There are six adjustment controls 3 are for focus for each color and 3 screen controls for each color. Look close at the black plastic control module should be labled R G B for focus and R G B for screens. Good Luck!

Sony KP-51WS500 projection tv. Screen is green with curved lines


The green picture tube has an internal short. Happened a lot with that model. The tubes are no longer availible. But a reputable company called Video Display will rebuild the tube completely. But the tube must be pulled and shipped to them. Most repair shops would charge around $400 to $500 for the complete job.
