Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The television turns off by itself. Sometimes just the picture disappears but you still have the audio. The error code is 5 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.
It sounds like the TV may have a shorted CRT, picture tube, but let's trouble shoot:
1. Unplug TV from wall.
2. Remove speaker grill, two on bottom, the screws are covered with plastic caps, right and left side on bottom next to floor.
3. Remove inner panel.
4. The blue tube is the one the right side, remove socket, with phillips driver, make sure it's not touching anything.
5. Plug and turn TV back on, if picture appears with no blue it's the tube.
6. If still shuts down, bad blue CRT driver IC.
CAUTION: Call a factory authorized service dealer to give you an estimate, if this sounds too hard.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
