Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television
My Sony, KP-51HW40, flashes green blips and then shuts down. The little red light on the front of the TV goes on and off eight times after the tv shuts down. IS there a part associated with this red flash code or is there something I can do to solve this?
OMG! My TV has been sitting in a closet for the last three years because I couldn't afford to have it fixed. I have googled now and then trying to find a cure for its green affliction but never found the right advice until tonight. I can't thank J19666566666 enough!! I just followed the instructions and presto! Working TV again! And just in time for the Oscars (which is like the Super Bowl for me).
The editor in me tweaked the instructions a little...
Its is real easy to fix. There are 2 screws holding the front speaker cover on near the bottom corners (there are plastic plugs covering the screws that need to come out first). Unscrew and remove the speaker cover (pull it out from the bottom a little then sort of down and out to get it loose but be careful because there are wires attached). Next remove the 4 screws holding the particle board panel in place. There will be a cluster of 6 adjustment nobs with a drop of white paint on each one (2 rows of 3 - do not touch the top row). The green is controlled by the bottom middle screw, Using a screwdriver turn it counter clockwise (to the left) ever so slightly (1-3mm) and there you have your TV back. Use the bottom right screw to adjust the red and bottom left screw for blue.
Thanks again so much!

There are 2 screws holding the front speaker cover on (there are plugs covering the screws that you take out first).Unscrew and reove speaker cover(you got to give it a bit of a tug to get it off ) then remove the piece of wood cover held by 4 screws .. Once you have taken that off when you look down you will see 6 screw like adjusters with a white painted mark on them (do not touch top row ) the green is controlled by the bottom middle screw ,, witha screwdriver turn it counter clockwise (to the left) ever so slightly (1-3mm)and there you have your TV back .. when the screen turns red use the bottom right screw and blue bottom left screw.. I hope this helps

Solution by J19666566666 clarified again by CrunkMomma corrected this issue for me. This TV was given to me by a friend who was going to throw it out, all it took was a few adjustments as described above (red flash for me versus green) and works like new again. Thanks a ton for the help!

My research indicates a possible faulty T8005. it is locate on the "D" board. t8005 is the flyback transformer. i do not know of a way to test this part other than by replacement. sony part # 1-453-285-21 sony's price about $150.00. you may also have another bad part. sometimes the horizontal o/p can go when the flyback goes. i recomend you call your nearest service center to get their opinon. good luck.
