Sony kp 51hw40 rear projector turn off problem .

T8005 etc is NOT the issue.

This set was prone to bad picture tubes (has 3) and can flash bright blue (most common) and set when this happens detects too much current being drawn and shuts down.

There is a fairly easy way to try to deal with this and return set operation to fairly normal.

Not technical and no parts are needed.

Let me know if you want to know with a comment here and I will explain.

Blue screen

Very common problem on your model. you have a bad blue tube. in order to repair it you will need to replace the blue tube and then aligned it to the others. you will need to know a little about what you are doing. if you are interested in doing this yourself i will need a serial number off the back of the set to get you the right part number for the tube. This tube is going to cost you somewhere between $200-$300. To get this tube in there and looking right is a little of a fine art, I can walk you through this though. Let me know what you want to do!

Can I repair this problem myself?

You could do it but you would need the service manual to be able to do the tube and lens alighnment. You have to align the tube and lens before you can adjust convergence, and if you dont alighn properly you will kill your convergence ICs trying to compensate. If you would like me to post a link where you can get the manual let me know.

Sony KP-51WS500 fades into a blue screen

You have a bad Blue picture tube. with Sony, they suggest you replace all 3 tubes at the same time. If you have warranty coverage good, if not forget about it. Get yourself another TV.

Magnavox 8P6051C101 Projection TV Problem

Changing the tubes isn't that hard. However your blue tube is whats causing the green and red to over power your screen. Magnavox blue tubes frequently need the Crt Coolant changed especially in the blue CRT. It has a tendency to gel up like oatmeal and it will actually make it next to impossible for the tube to function properly. You can easily check this. Be careful but look inside the blue tube while its playing you will notice right away if the tube looks real cloudy compared to the green and red tubes. This is a repair that most "handy" people can handle with proper instructions. Hope this helps let me know if I can assist you further.

No picture blinking stand by light

I hve worked on a number of these units , your description is typical of a shorted blue picture tube. The protection circuits in the tv detect that there is a problem thus shutting the unit down to prevent further damage. Sony had a bad run of picture tubes in this series. The replacement cost of the tube is about $250 plus labor. My estimate would be for the repair about $400-500 depending on where you live and how honest your local technican is. I will caution you however, that you could replace this tube and the red or green could go. These would not be covered by the technicians warranty. When these sets are working, they have a superb picture and it is easy to get lured into fixing them. Scrivitron
