This is a convergence problem that is either bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins, if that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

My 10 yr old Sony KP-51WS520 rear projection tv come on for about 10 seconds and then shuts off.

Sadly yes. that is repairable but a 55" flatscreen TV is pretty reasonably priced these days. It will use a lot less electricity as well.

Picture on my rear projection tv

This set needs alignment and convergence adjustment. If the set is quite old, it may be showing its age and can't be fixed.

Need a new lamp but screen is becoming filled with blue dots. Tv is 3 yrs old; ave - use. Told it will be useless in 1 yr. Sony projected many yrs of use for this expensive tv. Are they still making this...

No they are not, in fact that type of tv is being phased out. Basically this technology was more bang for your buck ( bigger screens for cheaper), unfortunately they work off of either halogen or led light bulbs which halogens dont last very long. Maybe 5000-7000 hours of use. New bulbs cost around $250, but need special care replacing it in the tv, alignment is crucial to tv clarity.

3 images in different colors-42 in Sony projection

So this is a rear projection TV.

Chances are the tubes are out of alignment. When cleaning or anything never move the tubes as it will be hell to get em back properly.

In the back you can take off the rear panel and move the tubes to partially re-align the picture.

This is generally followed by a model specific procedure using the remote to bring up alignment grids to finalize the picture alignment.

The reason for the 3 colours in the picture are that the rear projection units use Red, Green and Blue tubes to create the one colour picture.

All in all... When I messed mine up it took about 2 hours to set it straight again.

Now I just have to fix my flashing screen problem and i'm set.

Try cleaning your air filter sounds like its a thermal problem, often its due to an obstruction in the air filter.
