I have a sony Vega 55" kdf-e55a20, It is 3 years old, and now the picture and sound fade away for 10-15 sec every hour or so and comes back! Anyone knows what the problem is?

Lamp is getting weak and TV shuts off and turns on itself because of weak lamp in TV that you see picture and sound fades away for some time until TV reboots.
Replace lamp in TV to solve this issue. Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual and its an easy work.
Please buy Sony original lamp for your Tv safety.

VS 5001R sounds like its gonna turn on but doesnt

This chassis model line had issues with the vertical output IC shorting causing shut down.
It also had issues with intermittent solder connections in the Horizontal Circuit. I would not try to fix it your self unless you are very familiar with Projection circuitry and electronics background.
Hope this helps,

Kp51ws500 color flickering

I'm afraid I don't have good news. This is known as the "Flicker Issue." As a Sony authorized servicer, the shop I worked for was directed to replace all three of the CRT's in the limited number of sets that experienced this issue. The cost per tube is typically around $200. If you decide to take this on, it is best to replace one CRT at a time, power up the set and do the yoke adjustments and electrical alignments to get the new color to line up with the existing ones.

Picture comes on then fades to blue

Check the info from this website to see if you are able to fix your TV. You should turn the blue screen control down slightly counterclockwise. If that did not work, then more likely you have a video amplifier IC defective or a blue CRT.

PCN5425R Fading in and out

No It is not the picture tube.
First, I would suspect a bad solder connection (cold solder connection) to find this problem hit the side cassing to see if the picuture goes away or comes back.
Another way is take the back cover off and tap gently on the boards with something not conductive or your hair would look like mine. The most commond section is power supply and neer the Horizontal flyback transformor.
The horizontal transformor look at it, it's a big greyish darty little thing about 3" x 4" and stand up about 4" with a big red wire going out of it. Don't touch it, it has very high voltages, just look what it done to my hair I'm telling you don't touch it along with it's red lead's. Just look to see if it is arking if so replace it.

When you have convegence problem , it is mis aligment of the colours in the genmentry aligments.
I would suspect more in the power supply section.
