Question about Sony KV-36FS16 36" TV

1 Answer

Tv blinks on and off ever 5-10 seconds and display will not turn off

It first started that when I turned my TV on that it would blink in and out a few times and then go back to a normal picture;however, now the tv continually blinks on and off every 5-10 seconds. The display shows up in the corner of the screen and when i use my remote to take display off, the tv will be fine for about a minute and then the display will show up again in the corner, and the blinking returns. Any help on this problem would be great!
