Question about Televison & Video
Turn power button on and screen remains blacks and cuts off in a few seconds. When you try to turn it back on, we have to wait a couple of minutes before we are able to turn it back on.
The set literally has a 3 strikes and you are out where it will try three times and go to shutdown.
The common issues this set has are bad solder connections under and around the high voltage transformer and also in some cases the High voltage splitter block (located way up front behind lower grill below screen unit and behind a removable inspection plate).
The transformer rarely fails but can--photo of what is general appearance of this type of part is attached.

I have the same problem. I had someone come look at it and he showed me the problem but a terrible price, so i didnt have it fixed. The reason the light blinks is there is a problem and the safety mech is kicked in which shuts the TV off. If you take the back of the TV off, about 15 screws, you will see right in the front on the left side a part shaped like the letter "C". The number on top of mine is S5 19 2. That is the part that needs to be replaced. Now to find the part on the internet and figure out how to change it out. any suggestions?

Replace CP150 on the deflection board and that should take care of the problem since it starts once in a wnile if it didnt start ever then you would need the 259296 flyback and the CP150 Capacitor.

Your TV is overheating.. easiest remedy is to point a fan at the back of the TV or... clean the inside of the TV, Im sure its full of dust and stuff... this prevents air circulation inside the TV thus creating more heat...
