Sony KP-65WS500 TV shuts off by it self....after I turn it back on, a minute later it goes off again.

The 8 blinks means its a High Voltage error which mean ur D- board is bad it'll be T8005.

The flyback transformer is defective when the LED flashes 8 times. The FBT is located on the main board(D board).
Location of the part is T8005 and the Sony part number is 1-453-285-41
This part is available from this website.
This type of repair might not be a DIY due to the danger of working with devices that generate high voltages.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I have the same model Sony with the same problem it was just returned from the repair shop (not to mention a $95.00 diagnosis charge) I was told that it will cost $700 to repair. The bulb in the back is gone and Sony no longer makes it so it would have to be re-built from scratch. I'm done.....

Tv shuts off by itself then flashes a code 8 blinks

Eight blinks means, "High voltage error". The probable cause location listed is "T8005 is faulty (D board). T8005 is the fly-back transformer (FBT). or you can replace the full d-board
You may purchase the D board complete for $185.10

or send in for repair here

if one of the crt is shorted it can also cause this problem.

This can be caused by a problem within the "D" board or a bad CRT. If the D board can be fixed, that would be the least expensive repair. Even so, this will require a service tech. Depending on the cost of an estimate, you could call a service tech and explain that the TV may need a "D board" and try to get it serviced. If the D board replacement does not fix the problem, the CRT would be next. Maybe the service tech would allow you to pay a small fee for the experiment and a fixed service cost if it is the D board.
