Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television
I originally had red lines on my screen(A sony kp51ws500) and used the adjustment at the base of the TV to correct this problem. Now there is no red color at all in the image and my power light flashes 5 times ever few seconds, but when I power off, I can see the red flicker as the screen goes dim. Is the red projection gun gone out or is this a high voltage problem and can this be fixed? Thanks, DB ... Bryan, Tx.
The adjsutment that you turned down was the G2 voltage to the red tube which is just a temporary fix for a CRT which has a short developing in it. Try turning up the red adjustment again only slightly to see if the red CRT ( tube) will light up
if it does and then the set shuts down its most likely the red CRT which is bad . If it lights up but you get retrace lines but doesnt shut down it possible that its the CR board ( Red CRT Drive Board) which is at the very bottom of the red tube.
