Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
It then shuts off automatically within seconds. what is my issue?
This is one of a group of sets that had BAD picture tubes--all of them.
At one point the tubes were all being replaced under warranty for the first two years. Now the tubes are only available on a rebuild basis and very expensive--defective one has to be removed and sent out for this.
If the set goes bright red in your case it is the red tube and the set is shutting down as the set detects way too much current is being drawn by this.
There is a way to TRY to adjust to compensate for this that requires no replacing of any parts. Essentially what it involves is getting at the point of adjustment from the front of the set.
If you are interested in the instructions reply to this posting and I will be happy to post them here for you----no soldering or replacement of parts is involved and you will know in fifteen minutes if it will help you or not.
I have been fixing sets for well over 30 years and have done this adjustment several times---it may if it works just buy you some more life out of the set as ALL three tubes eventually have this trouble.
Let me know if you want the instructions and I will provide them here.
