These sets have a history of bad picture tubes, the blue is most common, there is a way to without replacement of any parts to attempt to correct this.

you have to remove the entire grill on the front below the screen; it is usually held in either by two screws at the front (under little plastic caps) and or screws on the back on either side.

The grill will pull out and is engaged with large plastic tabs at the top; with it out since the front keyboard is mounted into it you lift and tilt it to the left. Remove the inspection plate behind it: look for the screen/focus block (see attached photo) and note the six controls: three are screen and three are focus----do not touch the focus ones.

They are usually marked (may be hard to see: r,g,blue) You want to locate the BLUE SCREEN CONTROL and with the set on on a unused video input turn the screen control SLOWLY (usually to the left) until you see no blue in the background; if you do it correctly all you should see is the Video 1 etc.


The idea here is to lower the blue screen setting just slightly-if it works you may only be buying some time as these sets are prone to problems like this.

I have done this several times and many see a few more years of use before they have to be replaced.

Let me know before you attempt this if any questions.

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.

Blue screen


The blue picture tube has gone bad. Sadly they are no longer availible for that unit. But the blue tube assembly can be sent back to a company called Video Display. They rebuild the tube for a very reasonable price. The hitch is that it takes a professional tv tech to reinstall and align the rebuilt tube. Most respectable shops will do this work but the repair is spendy. Usually around $450 to $500 or more.
