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

SOURCE: Green flashes then tv turns off
OMG! My TV has been sitting in a closet for the last three years because I couldn't afford to have it fixed. I have googled now and then trying to find a cure for its green affliction but never found the right advice until tonight. I can't thank J19666566666 enough!! I just followed the instructions and presto! Working TV again! And just in time for the Oscars (which is like the Super Bowl for me).
The editor in me tweaked the instructions a little...
Its is real easy to fix. There are 2 screws holding the front speaker cover on near the bottom corners (there are plastic plugs covering the screws that need to come out first). Unscrew and remove the speaker cover (pull it out from the bottom a little then sort of down and out to get it loose but be careful because there are wires attached). Next remove the 4 screws holding the particle board panel in place. There will be a cluster of 6 adjustment nobs with a drop of white paint on each one (2 rows of 3 - do not touch the top row). The green is controlled by the bottom middle screw, Using a screwdriver turn it counter clockwise (to the left) ever so slightly (1-3mm) and there you have your TV back. Use the bottom right screw to adjust the red and bottom left screw for blue.
Thanks again so much!

High voltage in TV got problem and thats why TV gives 10 time blink error code.
Qualified TV tech will fix it as its bit complicated fix.

Off hand I would con dim the Red and Blue CRT"s. If you were to replace two of them I would also do the Green CRT as well. The cost of just doing two of them is way too expensive in my opinion and you would be better served to replace the set instead of investing the amount of money needed in a 6-8 yr. old set.
Hope this helps,

On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.
