Kp-51ws510 picture issues

Hello
I have had this Sony tv for about 4 years and it has been wonderful however, yesterday I turned it on and the picture suddenly flashed to a blue shade. Now everything is a shade of blue. You can still see the picture it's just all in shades of blue. I took the back off to see if any lights were burned out and then are all working. Just the blue one is way brighter. I have tried to do the auto adjustments with no resolve. Any suggestions that you could give would be much appreciated.

Bob, remove the front speaker panel and you will see a small access panel remove that also and you will see a small block with 6 dials on it. three on top and three on the bottom. Look closely at the dials and you will see focus for 3 of the dials and Screen for the other 3. The dials marked screen control the drive amount for each tube and are laid out like the tubes green dial in the middle and blue dial on the same side as the blue tube. try turning the blue tube down a little. If that deosnt help you will no doubt need a new blue tube, which is a fairly common problem with that model Sony. If you require more assistance please let me know.

Hi,
For some reason different models are coming out of the extended warranty at different times. If you have been told by Sony that it is no longer covered that's pretty much it unfortunately.

Sony KP-51WS510 51 in. Dark picture


I finally heard from Sony tech assist. You have a bad high voltage transformer. As the set warms, the high voltage decreases and this is causing the problem. At this point, I would refer service to a local Sony authorized center.
