    Sometimes it appears to start to act up after we play a DVD. We played a DVD on Saturday, and the tv kept shuting down all day Sunday. Monday night it seemed to be okay. Now it may be okay for three weeks and then suddenly it will flash and shut down. We can turn it right back on, but it will continue shutting down, and we turn it back on.

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

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!

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,

My Sony TV shuts down after you get a bright flash of light from the screen. After it shuts down, the red LED light on the front flashes 8 times. What's the problem?


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.

Seems like your RED CRT is shorting out or failing. Do you notice any other colors besides just red having problems? The blinking of the red light eight times is a High voltage error. It could be your D board but I'm thinking it is more likely the red crt is probably shorting out.

51ws500 sony shuts down and standby light flashes 8 times


Eight blinks points to an audio output problem. The unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. 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.

Hope that helps.

I have a Sony kp-51ws500 I had the tubes fixed 3 years ago!! Now the blue screen flashes & shuts down the tv!! Also the red timer lite is blinking at the same time!!! I dont have the timer set!! Please...


The Blue CRT has shorted and shutting the set down. You can verify this by simply sliding the Blue CRT drive board off the neck without unplugging any of its wires, Just let it hang suspended and then try powering up the set. If the set stays on you will know the Blue CRT needs replacement.

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Sony KP-51WS500 will not turn on


I believe the problem is either in the G board ( power supply) or the D Board ( high voltage) as the 3 blinks indicate the G board, and 7 indicates the D board and 6 indicates the +5 line a and b boards. So with that many codes its most likely the G board (power supply) You can get a new replacement G board at the following link which comes with free tech support to help you plug the baord in which is very easy. Its listed under the Sony parts category and its the A-1316-566-A sony G board, Here is the link.
