TV was working fine this morning, then all of a sudden it switched itself to standby and will not switch on with the remote and if i switch is off at the button and then back on again, the red standby light comes on but it wont "fire up" inside the set - Is it worth repairing as its about 4 years old
Why shouldn't it be worth fixing? It's only 4 years old, my own TV is 15yo, I fixed it twice but it's still kick'n! You have a problem in the power supply, do you have electronic's know how? And test equipment? Soldering equipment? If so we could walk you through it, If not A repair man should only cost 80 to 100 to fix it.

Blinking of standby light in Sony sets are fault indication. You just count the exact number of blinks occur at on instance, say, after you switch On and OFF by its front panel power switch, not by remote control hanset. Just count it atleast 4 times, count it keenly and inform it to me, and let me reach to the nearest falult point; or sometimes to the exact point. OK.
In time as the Sony Trinitron ages it begins to have power issues. While this can be true of most tube televisions it's the rate and severity at which this happens to Trinitrons that makes it particularly of note. Many Trinitron owners have complained of the Trinitron set turning itself off randomly and frequently. Some sets have failed to stay on for longer than a few minutes at a time. Eventually some sets will not turn on at all. These problems grow more severe with age.
Check the power cable running from the Sony Trinitron 32. Make sure the cable is completely inserted into the power connection on the rear of the TV as well as the local power outlet.
Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet, then plug it into a different connection. It is possible to electrical outlet has died, forcing you to obtain a power current from a different source.
Check the cable connection running from the cable/satellite receiver or VCR. If the TV is on but no picture is on the screen, the problem is most likely due to a connection issue.
Power off the cable/satellite receiver, then press the "Video" button on the remote control to switch the Trinitron 32 to the video input signal. Turn on the cable/satellite receiver and the programming now loads onto the television screen.
Try unplugging the TV for about 10 minutes and then tunung it on again. Try a factory
To reset the TV to factory settings
1 Turn the TV on.
2 Hold down on the remote control.
3 Press and release the POWER button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itself off,
then back on.
4 Release .
I'm assuming step 2 means hold down the power button.
I think the problem with the remote control it malfunction take the remote control away from the tv
and test the tv
I had the same problem and one time the tv came on by itself

if your remote is ok then this is due to power supply failure in your tv.
either it is loose in oscillator ckt in switching section or it has failed.
if not tech person call tech to fix it.
not a major problem.
