Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS100 32" TV
I have a SONY WEGA Trinitron model KV-32FS100 and the "Initial Setup" auto program screen keeps flashing on and off intermittantly, more and more frequently (no matter what you try to do to stop it), until the remote is disabled. Pushing buttons on TV itself only temporarily helps problem.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.
If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Heh. I just gave my set the "Fonzie treatment" after I was convinced the initial setup notice was messing with me. The problem cleared right up. No joke.

WARNING- VOLTAGES STORED INSIDE YOUR TV CAN KILL YOU EVEN AFTER ITS BEEN UNPLUGGED FOR DAYS..your problem is in the zero cross detect circuit . youu should take it to a repair facility. -Or replace diode D647 . Or on remote in this order press "display -5- vol down - pwr ." and then you could watch it right now ..kinda
