Question about Televison & Video
This TV (2004 bought) when i turned it on from the sets button (because remote became difficult to use), used to blink 3-4 times for some years and then run perfectly. Now it blinks continuously and after a minute or so it goes to stand by. I turn it on again and blinks again until another stand by. I dont think there is interferense or something else outside the box. Has it happen to more people and what can be the problem?
Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

You have a common problem in the DM (Digital Module), more specifically the DM power supply. There are four electrolytic caps in that supply 16v/1000uf that are bad and likely buldged from heat stress. Replacing these caps and the E2P module, a small stand-up board further back on the main DM board should restore normal operation...
You might be lucky enough to have a tech come out and simply replace those caps in-home. It's not a really big job for a qualified tech.
Hope this helps!

STOP THE PRESS!! I FIXED MY TV for a whopping $26.
I took a wild shot and purchased two STK392-110 convergence amplifiers from http://www.electronix.com/. They ship fast, placed my order on Tuesday evening after coming here and placing my comment. To my suprise the parts were in my mailbox on Friday. The parts were actually $12 but I also picked up a iron and a solder sucker.
So rarewish4us, If you're in the South Florida area I'd be more than happy to take that "JUNK" off your hands. LOL
If I were you, I'd give it a shot before you junk it.

SOURCE: why is my TV blinking?
The power supply or there is a fault in the display drive circuit areas.
The set would have to be troubleshooted by an experienced tech who is familiar with your set, and has the service manuals for it.
Most likely the tech will end up doing some board changes to fix the set.
Considering the age of the set and the fact of investing money in to it, I would retire the set and seriously start shopping for a new one.
