Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television
Intermitently, TV screen turns blue, then TV shuts off. Also, screen starting to go red now too. I've been told there could be a "short" that needs to be repaired on blue tube and other tubes...not sure I'm phrasing this correctly.Does this sound right? Is the TV worth fixing or should I just get a new one? TV is model Sony KP-57HW40 and is about 5 yrs old. Thanks! Mary Jane SAME SITUATION HERE...HAVE TV BY SONY MODEL KP51WS500 FOR 5 YEARS SCREEN TURNS BLUE AND IMMEDIATELY TURNS OFF...OTHER TIMES JUST STAYS ON ...IS THIS TV WORTH REPAIRING?
Here's a shortcut to what the blinking codes mean.
Strange how some people have 5 blinks. Most with this problem have 8 blinks (like myself)
I still have the blue-flash-then-shutting-off problem.. (8 blinks meaning voltage error) but I did fix the blue lines.. The lines across the screen can be very easily fixed whether they're blue green or red. . No, I mean REALLY easy. Took me longer to get the cover off. Once the front cover is off it takes 10 seconds. This link was also posted recently in one of the posts below as a solution..
(My lines didn't look like the ones in the picture mine were several evenly spaced blue arcs)
After some research I believe the flash/shutting off problem means the CRT is going. I've also read that it might be the D-board and I'm not even sure that that is... But If it is indeed the CRT then I'll let you know it's very difficult to find a replacement blue CRT as this part has been discontinued.. but I did eventually find an alternate to an alternate part (yes that's the 3rd alternate !)) online for $256.

If you're bold enough to attempt that then good luck and please let us know if it worked.
Or another alternative is there's a whole lot of Boxing Day sales goin' on right now.

SOURCE: Blue Screen and TV shuts off
I had the same problem but now I have another this tv is garbage. Anyway your problem is free and easy. Pop off the two screw covers at the front bottom and unscrew. unscrew the next cover. There are six adjustments you need to turn the blue down a little bit. It is one of the bottom ones. Make sure you mark all original positions.
