You have a shorted blue CRT (picture tube)
The problem is that these TVs are known to have defective CRTs but Sony can no longer supply them. There is a company in Texas that rebuilds them, but its an expensive repair.
Its a shame that Sony has not been forced to take care of their customers. I've replaced hundreds of these CRTs and seen hundreds more after the supply ran out.
Sony knew about this issue way back in 2002 but only resolved complaints for a limited time and did nothing to notify owners whom they could easily indentify by serial number.
Let's hope we don't give up our auto industry or we'll soon see the same behavior there.

Thanks you so much for this info.
I had the same problem with my Sony KW-57wv600. Blue screen turns black after a few seconds, and then standby light flashes seven times.
I called a local TV technician, and described problem. I was told it would not be cost effective to fix. After reviewing the "simple" instructions given on www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html I figured I had nothing to lose.
10 minutes to remove front panel, a "very slight" turn of a screw, and TV worked again perfectly. I could not believe it!
Thank you so much for your help!
SHAME ON SONY FOR NOT POSTING THIS FIX ON THEIR WEBSITE! SHAME ON THE TECHNICIAN AT SONY WHICH INSISTED A SERVICE TECHNICIAN WAS REQUIRED.
I have always been a fan of Sony, swearing by Sony products exclusively. After this experience, I am now forced to consider some other options when purchasing electronics in the future.

I found this solution from SONY's website.
The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: sony kp-57wv600 tv turns on
1. remove 5 screws from behind each speaker
2. grasp center panel at the bottom and "pop" forward. Swing upward, set front panel aside.
3. Remove center wooden panel.
4. Look for "black box" with six screws at the front of set. There is torque paint on screws.
5. (my set would go green before going black) I turned the center bottom screw (green) appx. 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise.
Plugged in the TV and it works great now!
Happy TV Viewing!!!!
