Drawing blue lines around body parts

I have a 27 inch sanyo tv that is several years old. Today it started drawing blue lines around heads and down arms. As well it is causing horrible face distortion from different angles. They look like the "living dead!!!

TV: Sanyo 21 inch tube (about 10 years old) When TV powered on. When I try to manually or using remote bring picture on (i.e. by prg up or down), the power on indicator light starts flashing and nothing...

You have a power supply problem.
The microprocessor has its own supply and is not receiving a "hand shake" from the line output stage that in turn is not receiving and power from the power supply.
The chopper transistor will possibly be short circuit taking the feed resistor with it.
Check for dry joints everywhere and MAKE CERTAIN THE HT CAPACITOR HAS DISCHARGED!!!!!
Hope this helps.

Screan turned a shade of purple

I believe you have lost the green channel leaving only the red and blue. It could be an internal connection like a solder joint or connector, or it could be component failure from the CRT to an adjustment pot. Being the set is ten years old it wouldn't be worth spending a lot of money on it. You can buy a 27 inch TV now for almost what a repair would cost. If the picture was very good before this probem you may try to get it fixed cheap. Otherwise it probably wouldn't be worth it.
My 27 inch TV's (A Sony and a Sharp) are pretty old and I would fix them myself if the picture tube was very good.
This may be a very good time to buy considering the discounts being offered. ;-)).

Standard TV-Auto shut down

TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss.
Figure on replacing the flyback transformer.
However, my experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board from an outfit like PTS Electronics at
Hope ya fix it!

27 inch tube tv won't stay on

You have a problem is in your horizontal section which also is part of your power supply. The high pitched whine is from the Intergrated High voltage transformer (also called the flyback transformer). This sound occurs when the freuency of the transformer changes and or the voltage gets too high. The click occurs as a result of the drawing of excessive current by the HOT Horizontal output transistor. This is repairable, but requires the correct equipment and a schematic.
