Sony 27XBR45 picture blue at first and then later goes to color
I suspect a power supply problem since the tube still goes to full color after a while, but is blue for a long time at first and is taking longer and longer to go to full color. And now when it does it still goes blue from time to time for a few seconds. A, I correct and if so do you know where I can get a power supply

Five blinks is the error code for an AKB (auto kine bias) error. What this means is that the set isn't able to balance the three color guns (red, green and blue) of the picture tube properly, and it's blanking out the screen.
To get the proper colors, the signals for the three colors need to be balanced, and Sony sets have circuitry to do this automatically. Other brands don't, and when they go out of balance you see a picture that starts to show tinting or colors that are off. As the picture tube ages, it gets harder to adjust the balance until finally the AKB circuit can't anymore, and poof, the picture goes away. With a 17-year-old tube, it's not surprising.
There isn't anything that can be done to fix the picture tube, it would need to be replaced. But the cost of the tube and the work required to get it set up after installation makes it completely uneconomical to repair this TV. A new picture tube is nearly $200. Then special tools are required to
set the tube up (a process called convergence), so you'd need to find
someone to put it in, and possibly pay to have the old one disposed of. A new 32-inch LCD set is around $350 now. Treat yourself to a new one.
This is blue CRT problem in tv as it is rear projection tv that has three CRTs red-green-blue inside to project color picture on front screen. Blue CRT (tube) will be replaced to fix the issue and it is job of Pro because lots of adjustments are required after replacement of tube. Local tv repair shop will help you for that. Thanks
To get the right colors, especially a plain white, requires the right mix of red, green and blue from the picture tube. Sony TV sets have a circuit called AKB that automatically keeps the picture tube balanced by adjusting the signals to it. If that balance can't be achieved it shuts off the picture. This may due to tube aging so one of the color guns is too weak to adjust, or failure of parts in the AKB circuit itself. If the sound stays on and the power light starts blinking when the picture goes off, this is likely why.
On the other hand, if the set is turning off completely with no picture, sound or power light, the set may have power supply problems or defective parts in the picture tube high voltage circuits.
Since there are several possible causes, this set needs to be checked by a technician who can diagnose the problem and decide what needs to be done. It's not a simple thing I can point to and say "change this part". If the picture tube is the cause, it's better to replace the set. Otherwise get an estimate, then decide whether to fix or replace.
if it is a KP65ws500 it is one of a group of sets made by Sony where all the picture Tubes(set has a RED, Green, and Blue Tube.) ARE BAD. Most of these sets had all three tubes replaced during a program Sony had. The tubes are NO LONGER AVAILABLE---the only way to get one is remove the tube and send it out for rebuild---most of these cost about 250-300 just for the tube.
The set is shutting down because when the screen goes bright blue it detects one of the CRT's(tubes) is pulling way to much current.
The problem with Replacing your Blue Tube is cost and----sooner or later the other two(red and green) are going to fail also.
best advice is maybe not to fix it.
I replaced dozens of the tubes in these sets when Sony had a recall and provided the tubes for free and paid for the labor etc.
I know I am not giving you good news but I do this here for free and if this has been helpful give me a vote here. Thanks!
I had the same problem with my TV, but the hue was blue. I was told that not only did I have to replace the picture tube that wasn't staying on, but I would have to replace them all because they would not mix properly. After much investigation, I found that there is an adjustment for a variable power supply to each tube that can brighten and lighten each tube. I adjusted the RED pot and my picture color issue was resolved! To access this adjustment you must remove the front panel on the TV. At the bottom corners there are two small screw covers that you must remove. Then un-screw the screws under the covers. Then pull the front panel off of the TV, (it hooks under the top near the screen so it will swing out from the bottom). Now remove the wooden panel in the center, (four screws). The pot adjustments are at the bottom of the TV. They are marked for Red, Blue, and Green. They are extremely sensitive, don't turn them much! If you over adjust you will get red, green, or blue lines on your screen. Adjust back down to remove these, (this is also the remedy for removing these lines that can appear over time). Good Luck and God Bless!
Unfortunately, this sounds familiar. Many of these sony projections had bad crt's.(picture tubes). Now here is a secret I learned along the way. The short in the picture tubes is in the filament, causing that color to overpower all others and sometimes causing pix to disappear until set is shut off and back on. If you are very careful and use an insulated screwdriver, you can sometimes tap on neck of picture tube and knock debris from filament causing extended tube life. This is dangerous and must be performed with set turned on. From front of set gently tap on neck of tube(s) in question using insulated handle of screwdriver to make contact with picture tube neck. Picture will probably flash whichever color tube is contacted. Eventually, if picture stops flashing that color as much, you can sometimes get several more months out of your set without any problems. Only alternative is to try a crt rejuvinator or replace tubes at a cost of 200.00 each if avail. plus labor. Good luck, Russmann.
The on and off conditions is repairable and is not the tube,you should have it check out for loose conections and try not to use it or it will go bad for good and the repair will become expensive,Check power supply,horizontal driver transformer and crt board,If you are not familiar with tv service be safe and call for help.
It isn't clear if the picture just loses color or the screen goes blank. If you are just losing color (picture goes to B/W) there is a problem in the color circuit and from your description it could easily be a bad solder connection on the board which decodes the color portion of the picture. If you are capable with a soldering iron and know TV HV safety, unplug the set, and remove the circuit boards and inspect (with a high powered magnifier)and resolder all suspect looking connections on the boards. You could also resolder all the connections which is more work but assures that solder joints are not the problem. If your problem is not solved at this point you are probably going to need a technician to look at it as it could be just about anything and probably would be beyond your expertise. Good luck and be safe.
