Usually a flashing power light on a rear projection TV means a bad bulb, try replacing the bulb. Also try unplugging it for 10-15 minutes, then come back and plug it in and try again. Also if its been a long time since its been serviced it could be dust buildup causing overheating, do you hear the cooling fan running? It could also be a failed cooling fan. Generally the first thing i do with projection TV's is clean them, clean all the vents, pull the bulb out, clean out the cooling fan and bulb housing, and then try a new bulb. If that doesn't fix it then its a bigger internal problem and there is no quick fix but have it serviced.

Sony kp 51ws510 upgrade to HD - how to do this

There are inputs on the back of the set. If your tv is Sony 51ws510 then it is capable of HD, but you have to have component or DVI cables to connect the tv to the HD device (HD cable box or DVD player).

On your set the component inputs on the back of the tv are video5 and video6 in the middle located in a vertical line (red, green, blue rca video connections with red and white rca audio connections).

You also have a DVI input toward at the top of the input panel (white connector with red and white rca audio connectors).

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 long as it is an LCD projection.
