Question about Sony KP-61HS10 61" Rear Projection Television
Screen and sound went blank. timer light flashes 6 times every 3 to5 seconds. it had blue lines running through it when we walked and the floor vibrated
Mine blinks like 5 or 6 times - picture goes out, but sound stays. It has been at the repair shop for 1.5 months and the tech finally sees the problem. He says 3 new tubes will fix it, but the blue is discontinued. Can anyone confirm?

Hello - I had the same problem. If you call a tech they will say that
the picture tube is broken and that it will cost $350 + labor to fix it
because Sony does not make the part! Do not believe that cock and bull
All you need to do it to remove the front lower panel where the speakers are located. Behind it there is a cardboard / plywood board fixed on to the TV with 4 screws. Remove this board. you will then find a switch that contains 6 bolts/screws that can be adjusted:- 3 (upper) and 3 (lower) sets of adjustment knobs or large screws that are probably marked as G(for green), R(for red) and B(for blue). You will probably have to adjust them very slightly while the TV is on. Be careful so that you dont shock your self! And Voila, the problem will be fixed!!
I am not an electrical engineer, but work as an IT professional. It saved me a bunch of money, not to say a happy family/household!

No, not screwed, but you will need it repaired...
Sounds like convergence issue and possibly ring-cracks on the amps themselves until the heat and vibration did them in..
Now the shutdown circuit won't let you power-up the set...
This unit uses two STK392-020 Sanyo built amps. Those, together with testing and replacing some low ohm resistors should have this unit up and running again in short order...
