It sounds as if the set is losing & recovering sync; these are the signals that tell the set when to start painting a line of horizontal and a frame of vertical. Try to catch the thing doing this while holding the cable from your game system to the TV and whether moving/flexing the cable causes it to go to black or return from it.

What can I do to fix my Sanyo tv off and on issues? It keeps blinking or flicking off and on screen but it works good and stable when playing video games I would appreciate any tips or help thanks


These 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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Screen randomly flashes black


First and foremost you need to change one of two things. Either your video output settings on your xbox 360, or use an hdmi cable as opposed to component cables. Component cables are only designed to output video up to 1080i, not 1080p(big difference). So if you try to run a output signal of 1080p with cables only made to send 1080i, you will have picture issues.
