If you unplug the set and plug it back and turn it on and it repeats this look to see if the light is either constantly blinking or blinking a specific number of blinks---specific number would be an error code.
Check the remote carefully for a stuck button. You may have pressed a button and it went a bit crooked getting stuck. Also, remove the batteries of the remote and try operating the TV manually. If the remote is the cause, the TV will work correctly once you remove the batteries. Another way to check is by using a digital camera, like the one in a cell phone. Turn on the camera and point it at the remote. If you see a white light coming from the transmitter, the remote is sending a signal. Look for a stuck button.
sounds like somebody set the timer. normally this only makes the set enter standby mode and pressing the power button or a channel button usually wakes the set normally.
Just a longshot but have you tried pressing 09 while the light is blinking?
I have a Sony SRS BBE Trinitron (WEGA). The last few days when I tried to turn it on using the remote the Red Light would go on but the TV did not turn on. I would have to press the power button again to turn it on.. I tought the remote battery was just low.
Today when I tried to turn it on nothing is happening and the Red Light is blinking 9 times ??? I tried to unplug it and try it again, still does the same thing ???
You can try this on the remote in standby mode, meaning tv plugged in but set off. Press Display,5,vol+,power on remote.Press each button within a 1 sec interv. Next the CRT display the item being adjusted. Press 1or4 on remote to select item. 3or6 to change the data. Press Muting then Enter to write into memory. Service Reset muting green enter red. Press 8 then enter on remote to initialize. turn set off to exit. wait least 10 sec. before turning back on.
The first thing to check is the horizontal output transistor,it might have shorted out and opened the fuse or safety resistor that gives him power to operate,sometimes it goes bad by itself and sometimes the output transformer goes bad and takes him out too.If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not to familiar be safe and seek the help of a servicer.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
