Sony Kp51ws500 Jumping Colors

I have a sony kp51ws500 and it is giving me an error code 5, and the picture is 'jumping' It displays images and jumps even when not hooked up to a video source. The Red is most pronounced, but I think the others are doing the same. The color is off by a measure and jumping back and forth like color static. I didn't see other posts similiar to this. I was wondering if it could be either the Convergence amp, ICS, or if I should replace the whole board.

Thanks in advance!

Sony fd trinitron wega kv34hs510

The set may have a self check mode or error buffer--most of these that do with the set turned off: Display, 5, vol. down and then power.

If it has the buffer a box will appear in middle of screen with several items listed-----------all should have a 0 to the right of them---a number indicates a error detected and noted.

If no error found or no display for that contact Sony for the reset code which usually is gained by going into tech menu (different from error menu) and with remote pressing 7 and enter---this does a hard reset and returns set to all factory defaults--if that did not cure it you have a interesting trouble...........

Have sony kp51ws500 won't turn on, it clicks then shuts down and i get 7 blinks on front--had green, blue, and red line issues before

Hi wright
To answer your question;
The 7 blinks code(sony error codes) means that the horizontal deflection has stopped.
The common cause for this are transistors Q8035,Q8038 and the horizontal output Q8024 all located on "D" board.
Hope this help and let me know if you need further assistance.
