NOT GOOD NEWS... IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR BLUE CRT IS SHORTED. THE ORIGINAL PART IS N.L.A.(NO LONGER AVAILABLE) THEY DO MAKE A GENERIC REPLACEMENT, BUT I DON'T THINK THEY ARE AS GOOD AS O.E.M.
YOU CAN TAKE OFF FRONT OF T.V. AND ADJUST THE SCREEN DOWN ON THE FOCUS BLOCK. IT IS THE BLACK BOX WITH 6 ADJ. ON IT 3 ARE FOCUS. 3 ARE SCREEN . TURN THE BLUE ALL THE WAY DOWN , THEN WITH THE BACK OF A PLASTIC OR RUBBER SCREWDRIVER HANDEL YOU CAN TAP ON THE NECK OF THE CRT, NOT TO HARD. SOME TIMES YOU CAN CLEAR THE SHORT OUT OF THE CTR. IF THIS WORKS LET THE SET WARM UP FOR 10-20 MIN. THEN TURN THE COLOR ALL THE WAR OFF, THEN SET THE BLUE LEVER UNTIL YOU HAVE A GOOD BLACK AND WHITE PICTURE. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TURN IT UP YOU CAN DAMAGE THE CTR IF THE LEVEL IS TO HIGH. ERROR 8 IS A.K.B. ERROR THAT MEANS THE CRT'S ARE DRAWING TO MUCH CURRENT.

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old


Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each color...one is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

Kp-51ws510 picture issues


Bob, remove the front speaker panel and you will see a small access panel remove that also and you will see a small block with 6 dials on it. three on top and three on the bottom. Look closely at the dials and you will see focus for 3 of the dials and Screen for the other 3. The dials marked screen control the drive amount for each tube and are laid out like the tubes green dial in the middle and blue dial on the same side as the blue tube. try turning the blue tube down a little. If that deosnt help you will no doubt need a new blue tube, which is a fairly common problem with that model Sony. If you require more assistance please let me know.

Screen is too blue


You will have to take the front cover off, usually 3-6 screws holding from the back, when it does come off there will be wires to the control panel attached still. you will also have another panel to undo. after that there will be a block with 3 focus controls and 3 screen controls marked b g and r for the three colors. The blue screen control is the one you are looking for, be very careful the slightesr turn has huge response including shuting the tv off when you turn it the wrong direction to far

Blue spot


the model number KP-51WS510 deosnt use a bulb or lamp. and touching the face of the lamp will not cause color problems in the picture. if your tv is an LCD projection then i would suspect the optical engine as the culprit. to check when you turn the tv off do you still see the blue distortion? if so then you have a bad optical engine.......as long as it is an LCD projection.
