Help with sony trinitron problem

We have a Sony Trinitron about 12 years old. When we turn it on, you hear sound but the picture takes about 5-10 minutes to come on. And the picture will flash on and off for several minutes before finally staying on.

Re: help with sony trinitron problem

Are you serious? You have used that television... in particular that CRT well beyond its predictable lifetime.  Congratulations.  Those are early symptoms of CRT failure.  Your screen may turn green very soon also.  It will occur any moment now.  It is not cost-effective to repair.  Welcome to the next generation.  You will be amazed and delighted with LCD, plasma or DLP technology.

Sony Trinitron TV now taking around 5 minutes for picture to appear (sound comes on instantly) Is it worth repair or should I cut losses and replace set?

How old is the TV?
Sony Trinitron sounds like it may be from the 1980's?
Some TV engineers can use a piece of equipment to do a "tube boost" but this is sometimes risky and can completely ruin the tube, but it's a risk you would have to take.
If the TV is over 15 years old, and has been used regularly, (like 4 hours every day or more) it seems likely that the tube has reached the end of life.
TV cathode ray tubes are like light bulbs...they do not last forever!

Comes on and later goes blank

How much later? The Sony sets have a setting in the menu that turnes the TV off if there isnt' any input, Sometimes this feature gets messed up, and the feature has to be turned off, Check that out and see if that takes care of the problem.

No picture appears on screen

without seeing the set this is a hard one to fix if the button is slack when you press it then the button is going to be the problem otherwise it could be a transformer that has gone in the set, 12 years is a good age for a tv so i would suggest replacing it with a new lcd or plasma.

Sony Trinitron

Take it to an authorised repair agent. Sonys can be very complicated for both amateur and professional alike. I have spent hours on some of them.Most probably a failed voltage regulator though very common for Sonys and expensive.

Tired with this sony tv

Sony doesn't want anyone to see a poor picture on a Sony tv so they have a circuit that blanks the video if there is a weak picture or any other problem concerning picture quality. My Sony factory Instructor told me this many many years ago. I'm feeling old...but anyway you need a technician. Sorry.
