Re: Sony KP57WS510 Blinking 8 times

You have a strt up problem. I found, in a similiar Sony Big Screen a couple of fixes. First thing to try is unplug the set from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in and retry the set. If this corrects the problem, I suggest you purchase a good ( Not a 5 dollar piece of junk) surge protector. ( One rated at 500-1500 joules. A good surge protector may prevent future processor lock ups. If this doesn't correct the problem, the problem lies in the circuit boards of the set. I found one problem in a Sony like you describe had a bad convergence chip and a burned resistor in the same board. Good Luck

TV turns red,shuts off, stand-by light blinking 8Times

Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

If the Lamp red light is blinking then replace lamp, replacement procedure is written in user manual and its easy.
If standby/ power red light is blinking then please count its blinking and post here. It is an error code that has info about problem in specific section of tv.
You will see 3 seconds long pause between blinks so count pause to pause.

My Sony KP-46WT500 screen shows the tv image in blue only for a few seconds, then it goes completely blank (as if it were off). Do I need to replace the bulbs?

It is rear projection TV that use 3 picture tubes of red-green-blue to show color picture on tv front screen.
Do you see standby red light blinking when TV shuts off after showing blue image for a while?
If red standby light is blinking, please count it how many times it blinks, there would be 3 seconds pause between blinks so count pause to pause and post it here to find out possible solution.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.

Let me know when TV warms up does it go to standby?
