Question about Televison & Video
This is a Sony Trinitron 32" analog TV that we have had since 2001. It has the old-style screen (not flat). When I press the power button, a little red light at the bottom of the TV set constantly flashes, but the TV screen won't come on (although, we can hear audio). This first happened several months ago, but after a few days, the TV started working again then. It has been working fine since then up until Saturday morning, when it started having this same problem again. Over the weekend, we have tried pressing almost every button on the remote and the TV itself and even unplugging it for awhile, but nothing helps. This is the third day that it has been like this. Can you tell me what is wrong and how to fix it, if possible? (Do all of these types of TVs have this problem?)
(BTW, we do not have a Sony service center anywhere near us and the only local TV repairman is very expensive.)
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

your problem is a more technical problem you will need a tech to look at your set if you are not a tech you wont be able to do it your self. contact a tech to repair your set the problem is in the power supply or related circuit.good luck.

Id you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and take the set into an authorized Sony repair place to estimate the cost to repair. Yes I know it would be nice to repair, but how much do you know about component level printed circuit board repair? You will need to first get a service manual, know how to read a circuit diagram, thats a schematic, and know how every circuit works with each other to make the TV set operate. I do appriciate the fact you would like to repair this yourself, but there is no magic fix in most cases when it comes to electronics. There is circuit diagnosise involved. Best advice would be to call in a pro to assist you in these types of repairs. Good Luck

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.
