Your description can be a failing projection CRT. On some rare occasions it can be the drive circuits to the CRT's. This has to be properly varified by a tech who is experienced at working on this model type of set.

I have a Sony kp-51ws500 that shuts off and blinks 8 times, I'v read that some other people have had the same thing and it was the flyback transformer. Now my tv has just a green screen with no pi

No, the set is prone among other things to issues with the three picture tubes, go to unused video input----screen should be black with only the input label displayed-----in your case with Green screen and or slight diagonal trace lines (if there) the Green screen control itself needs to be adjusted slightly down.

I can tell you if you want how to do that---requires only a screwdriver and 10 minutes.

Check your CRT boards on the end of the tubes for burn spots, and burnt components, check the resistors to make sure they are not shorted, burnt, and they read the correct resistance. Check the diodes to make sure they conduct in one direction only and are not shorted or open.
