Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television
This is a model prone to all three tubes failing in this way. When the sets were less than a year old there was a program from Sony to replace all three tubes--it seems the wrong tubes were installed.
The tubes are now only available on a rebuild basis--take out old one and send out for rebuild and very expensive.
An alternative exists, it involves (in your case red) getting at the RED SCREEN CONTROL AND TURNING IT DOWN UNTIL THE SET DOES NOT SHUT DOWN and then adjusting it further. No parts will be involved and should take less than 20 minutes.
Set will shut down if screen turns bright red, green or blue as it detects too much current is being drawn.
If you want to know how to attempt this, rate this solution as very helpful and I will assist you.
