Question about Televison & Video
TV can't be turned on.Stand-by light blinks 6 times,pauses then repeats. What problem is that conveying and is there anything that I could check or do on my own to alleviate the problem ? I haven't had any problems with the set in the 8 years that I have had it.Thanks.
Blinking of standby light with Sony TVs are fault indications. Sony blinking codes and faults are described in detail by this site. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" or "Flipcard" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. There are more than 1100 posts to different brand TVs now. Pull up older posts there.

SOURCE: picture won't come on
1. See the ugly red color bands on the television set? These can also occur in blue and green. We're going to fix these!
2. Front shot of the television. Their are two screw holes on the front of the unit near the edge of each side right next to the speaker grille.
3. Close up shot of the screw hold. It is covered by a plastic cover that has two tabs holding it in. Carefully pry them out with your flat head screwdriver. Do not apply too much pressure or you can break the tabs off. Once the covers are removed, unscrew the two screws with a Philips screwdriver.
4. To remove the cover, pull from the bottom of the front case and rotate towards you. Once you rotate it out, the top will disconnect and come loose. Do not pull it off, as there are cords attached. (see picture) Loosen the cables attached with the twist ties and set the front cover to the left side.
5. With the speaker grille and cover removed, you now need to remove the wood panel to expose the inner electronics on your Sony HD TV. To do this, remove the four Philips head screws from the panel. Then, pulling from the right, rotate the panel off and the electronics will be exposed.
6. This is a picture of the inner electronics of your Sony Rear-Projection High Definition television. The little black box towards the front of the unit is where we will concentrate our time as it is the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment.
7. When focused in on the controls, you want to concentrate on the bottom row for the voltage / ray gun projection adjustment. The colors are labeled below and from left to right are blue, green, and red. Choose the one that needs to be adjusted and turn ever so slightly with your Philips screwdriver to remove the lines. In my case, the red just needed to be turned 1/8 of a rotation to be back in adjustment. Do not turn to quickly or abruptly or you could possibly damage your TV by varying the voltage too quickly.

I have the same set, and same problem.
After many hours/days of reading about this issue (which seems to be a popular one for this series and others) I have found a few sites that have detailed info on what can be done.
This link is for a different set but the same issue.
This problem seems rampant on many Sony sets. There really should be a class action suite against them for the replacement cost of the parts which can be $400(USD) or more unless you are handy with a soldering iron.
I have a service tech coming by to look at the set soon ($75) so he can tell me what is actuall wrong with it. Once I know if it is the D-board or the usual 3 ICs that die. I will most likely have a friend of mine solder on some sockets to replace the ICs if the happen to die again.
