Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Green Screen!!! I guess i'm not alone... My sony does the same thing. Turn it on, the screen turns green with lines across, gets brighter, brighter, brighter then shuts off. Does the stand-by light blink codes? If so mine blinks 8 times. Any help would be cool.

It could be the picture tube but it could also be the drive circuit foir the green tube, and I have fixed many a sony TV sets for this problem.. The best way to see if its the tube falure, is to take off the green crt socket and take off one of the tubes to the left or the right of the green as the green one is in the middle. If that turns green again and shuts down, then you know its the tube. If it does not turn green then you know that is in the green drive circuit. Most likly a bad driver transistor or the video jungle IC is bad. Oh and NEVER bang hit drop or slap your set to fix a problem. Thats the most stupid thing I have ever heard. The tube if its intermittant most of the time can be cleaned internally with a CRT rejuvenator. Who ever suggested driopping it is a fly by night repairer or unskilled or does not have the proper equipment to repair the set properly. you should know, anytime you have to hit or slap a set silly to make it work, most of the time there is a bad solder connection in sidfe on the printed circuit board and should be addressed or repaied asap as not to cause more damage to the set. Im still LOL about picking up the set and dropping it to fix it..LOLOLOL

I'm not a tech and I don't have a solution, but I have a repair manual. The 8 blinks indicates a High-voltage error, T8005 is faulty (D Board) Sorry, I don't know what a T8005 is, probably some IC. http://www.eserviceinfo.com/download.php?fileid=20644

I hate to tell you but the green picture tube is arking and that is why the set shutsdown,lift it off the ground and drop it about 3 inches only,sometimes it corrects the problem a long while,is worth the try.Dont over do it.Good luck.
