Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The television shut off by itself and won't turn back on. The error code is 8 flashes repeated. When the power button is pushed to on, the screen turns blue,there are ghost images on the screen for only a few seconds then the unit shuts off. Any help will be very much appreciated.
Had a repair man come out to fix it and it turned out to be a bad projector and another one going out. He showed me by hitting the tubes and they both would flash. The third one was ok. i gave him the good one and he waived his service charge. i went out and bought a 61 inch samsung dlp. he said it would be 900 to replace one tube because of labor. he said he could only get the tube but not the rest surrounding the original tube. so he would have to remove all the old stuff from the old one and install it on the new one. cheaper to buy a new tv.

The flyback is bad when you get 8 blinks on the diagnostic led error code. If you need more assistance let me know
