You have the classic sign of the failed Sony CRT. This was a VERY common issue with tese series of TV's. Just replacing the blue CRT alone isn't easy as they are no longer available and have to be pulled to be rebuilt. If you do that I highly suggest replacing the green and the red as they will follow. Maybe not now but trust me they will. You are looking over 1000.00 in repairs.

Screen turns blue on my sony KP-51WS500


Common issue on this set--locate the master screen / focus block and lower the BLUE screen control until the blue cast is gone, only a slight adjustment will be needed.
