Most likely bad solder connections around the flyback area of the circuit board, that model is famous for bad solder around the flyback and bad flybacks them selves. But if the led doesnt flash 3 times then go out, its most likely a solder issue.

    Yes if your set flashes 3 times then power light goes out its the flyback. You can get a replacement flyback at the following link and they will provide free instant messageing with a support tech so you can change the flyback yourself. Its a very easy an inexspensive repair. You need flyback number 265409 for your model. Here is the link.

After Perusing the internet, I found this to be a common problem, took slinteriors advice and order the flyback. 2 1/2 hours later. I had actually repaired my television, alone, with the help of the online tech support. Female, no experience, never soldered a thing before in my life. And my TV worked. have one small issue to deal with, but that same site had the part and I am awaiting it.
I recommend that anyone who has this particular tv try the repair themselves before trying to haul it into a shop or pay for a house call.

Hi Cheribug...I've been having the same problem! Thank you for your update on fixing it. You have inspired me to do the same! I was doing some research and found a whole group of people that are trying to get this tv recalled. However, if I can fix this myself...then I hope to do so. I just want a working tv asap! I will take a look at the links and figure out how to fix the flyback. Any other suggestions you have would be wonderful. Thanks again.

Does an old PHD cause faded colors?

the PHD transfers the image to the printed page and when it starts to go bad the images can become dull or faded and even blurry or totally missing. Id recommend the PHD be replaced and it should resolve your issues.

Magenta cartridge not working despite being full

This happens due to Laser sCANNER Contamination.

Light Output that typically starts fading along the outside edges of the media. The first noticable color would be Magenta.

Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.

You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach eazily.

Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.

Kp51ws500 color flickering

I'm afraid I don't have good news. This is known as the "Flicker Issue." As a Sony authorized servicer, the shop I worked for was directed to replace all three of the CRT's in the limited number of sets that experienced this issue. The cost per tube is typically around $200. If you decide to take this on, it is best to replace one CRT at a time, power up the set and do the yoke adjustments and electrical alignments to get the new color to line up with the existing ones.
