We have good news and bad news ;)
The bad news is that the 10 blinks you see usually indicate a failure of the circuit boards and you will need a diagnostic visit from a technician to figure out exactly which IC or board has gone bad. It's probably something on the board that controls the magnets that control one of the CRT "guns".
The good news is that, if parts are still available for your unit, it's certainly cheaper to repair than to buy a new LCD LED TV, especially one as big as yours.

You should call Sony for the name of repair companies in your area. A diagnostic visit from their rep will usually run about $150 in the US. They'll take that amount off of the total bill if you go forward with the repair. Replacement of the video IC boards run about $250 each in parts, plus the initial $150 labor charge, for a total of $400 for a typical repair. If they can't fix it, you're only out the initial fee.
Beautiful TV, BTW. Good luck!

The standby light flashes red ten times


You need to have it repaired by the TV manufacture. The circuit board inside the TV is burned and needs to be replaced.

I turn on the tv , sound but no picture and after a few seconds it turns off and flashlight blinks on front panel 10 times and after a pause repeats blinking


Had the exact same problem on a KDP-65WS550.
I replaced IC8002 (MCZ3001DA) and IC8005 (TL1431CZ) on the "D" board and this resolved the problem. Total cost including parts and shipping was around $35.00.

You have to count how many times it blinks. It is a service code. The main thing that goes on these is the convergence chips. If you had the back off doing any type of repair, recheck your plugs. Odds are, you crossed one.

MODEL: KDP51WS550, KDP57WS550, KDP65WS550, KP46WT500, KP46WT510, KP46WT520, KP51WS500, KP51WS510, KP57WS500, KP57WS510, KP57WS520, KP65WS500, KP65WS510
SUBJECT: Picture gets bright then shuts down. After repairs tech noticed a mark was created on all 3 CRT's.
CAUSE: Found Video Output was defective causing the failure of the 200v line. 200 volt line has two fuse resistors R7301 (10 ohm 1/4w) on the CB Board. R8225 (1 ohm 1/2w) on the D board. R8208 (0.47 ohm 1/2w) also on the D Board. All three resistors are in series. One or all 3 could be open. After replacing 2 resistors and Video Output IC set returned to normal operation. CRTs will need to be changed due to phosphor damage. On Models KDP-51WS550, KDP-57WS550, KDP-65WS550 CB Board resistor is R9335 10 ohm 1/4w. D Board resistor is R6509. NOTE: This resistor may be a jump wire according to the schematic. Models: KP-51WS520, KP-57WS520 These models have a fuse resistor on all 3 CRT Boards. CB R9335 10 ohm 1/4w CR R9110 10 ohm 1/4w CG R9211 10 ohm 1/4w On the D Board R6509 is a jumper wire according to the schematic.
