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.

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

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.

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