This is a bad high voltage power supply. The blinks mean your horizontal deflection circuit has failed. This is not a user repairable item. It requires a service call from a tech. My personal recommendation is to not repair the TV as a 46" CRT RPTV is not worth putting money into. you can buy a new flat TV for less than the repair costs most of the time. However it is still worth talking to a local repair shop. IF they can fix it for less than $200 it would be worth it.
Hi, if you guys don't have experience or the right tools to fix board you will mess up your board. so go to ebay and search for repair service listing #230735864835 and sen your board to this guy for convergence repair. let a professional do the job for you and for cheap,why buying repair kits when you can buy the repair service?
Replacing the bulb won't fix this problem. This is a defect in the optical block, which is apparently fairly common.
The best way to get in contact with the team that can fix this problem is by facebook. While on facebook, type "I have a defective Sony TV" in the search bar. This will bring up a page that is moderated by the SonyListens Team.
Post a comment about your TV, be sure to list your model number and a description of what's wrong with it. Someone within a few days will give you more information as to what steps to take next. It will seem like a lot of hoops to jump through, but in the end will be worth the time it took, as Sony will offer you huge discounts on a newer TV (I recently went through this, and got a new 3D ready TV for about a quarter of it's suggested retail value). If you are not on facebook, they list a contact email address as SonyListens@am.sony.com
Also worth noting: if you have receipts for recent repairs or replacement bulbs, you can submit them along with the other info, and Sony should adjust the offer price to compensate.
One word of warning though, once you have started this process and have received an offer from Sony, you will only have a week to claim the offer, so make sure you have the funds to put down on a new TV before you start.
Hope this helps! :-)
