Question about Televison & Video
Turn on very briefly and make sure the large red wire that entered the block is well away from any metal---if hear a frying sound and blink sequence is gone the block is bad( I used to put the wire into a old soda bottle as it has over 20 thousand volts coming out of it, much like the spark plug wires in a car---high voltage with low current.

You have a strt up problem. I found, in a similiar Sony Big Screen a couple of fixes. First thing to try is unplug the set from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in and retry the set. If this corrects the problem, I suggest you purchase a good ( Not a 5 dollar piece of junk) surge protector. ( One rated at 500-1500 joules. A good surge protector may prevent future processor lock ups. If this doesn't correct the problem, the problem lies in the circuit boards of the set. I found one problem in a Sony like you describe had a bad convergence chip and a burned resistor in the same board. Good Luck

SOURCE: convergence chip
Convergence ICs cost around 15-25 each there are only two of them. I would go ahead and replace both of them because if one goes the other one will follow shortly. I would make sure that it is just the convergence IC not something else, and if its over five years old dont pay more than $500.

I found this solution from SONY's website.
The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
I hope this helps.
