KP-51WS500 when on it blinked 4 times and has redscreen

Typically if you have a all Red Screen it is caused by either the Red CRT being shorted or The Red CRT Driver Board being bad.

Red horizontal curvy lines

You need to turn the voltage on the red tube down slightly, also you would need to adjust focus to compensate for the lower voltage to the red tube. On the left and right bottom side of speaker cover are two round covers, take them out and there are 2 1/4" hex screws take them out carefully take cover off, there is another service cover same hex screws remove. You will see the focus block on the right side, tubes are labled on block. 2 knobs for each tube. Make voltage adjustments while tv is on a black screen, then for focus, turn color all the way off in the menu, and adjust focus until it looks right in black and white. These adjustments should only be very small; if alot of adjustment is needed, you may have other issues.

Why my screen turning red after minute of use

If the screen looks like the one in the link I posted, then you might want to try fixing it with what is suggested on the site. Keep in mind that this is a band aid fix which compensates for weakening components, however it "should" buy you some time. Don't do these adjustments if this is not the same problem you are having. If the TV shuts itself down, check to see if the blinking code is the same as the one in the web site.

Hope this helps.

Faint red curved lines on Sony KP 51ws500.Converged = no work???

Hi There!
This sounds like a typical problem related to a older CRT.
If you remove the front cover of the tv, you can then remove a wood panel. Behind this panel you will see a block (high voltage splitter) it will have 6 "knobs" on it, 3 will say focus, 3 will say screen.
They will also be labeled R - G - B  
Put the tv on a blank input so you can see the lines clearly on a black screen  - Find the knob for red, and SLIGHTLY turn it down until the red lines disappear.
