    Yes, My Sony WEGA XBR is coming on on 4 years old. The picture went out, red light blinking 7 times then repeats... I was told service would cost between $350 and $400.

    When trying to turn on the TV, you can here the relays. Sometimes it does come on, but normally it just flashes the service light 7 times and does not come on.

    I am now having the same issue. We can't really find anything that explains these codes in language that we can understand.

Standby LED blinking 6 or 7 times and TV won't turn on

That is an error code that tells the tech where the problem lies. It is probably somewhere in the power supply stage. Your best bet is to take it to a TV repair shoppe and let them deal with it. They have all the documentation in order to repair the unit, and they can tell you what the problem is before they work on it.

2 year old turned tv on/off several times - TV doesn't turn on

The main power supply is in the protect mode. Usually this is caused by the high voltage section, scan amplifiers, and or the main power supply failing. Many times, when there are failures in the scan amplifier output sections, the main power supply can also be damaged.

On rare occastions, the CRT electron-gun can have a short, and cause this type of failure condition.

An experienced TV tech should be able to service this for you.

36 inch sony wega trinitron

I had the same issue earlier this week. 4 year old sony trinitron wega 32 in. I was told by Sony to call technician to repair and have called tech....could be anywhere from $200-$300 repair. I did research the blinks (google "sony blinking codes" to find out what each means) Ours was 6-7 blinks which meant power surge to tv. I advised to Sony that i saw many of the same issues with many of the newer tv's and suggested a recall issue--they denied and where no help.
I will buy a new tv now--definitly not a Sony.

Blinking what - how many times before it pauses and then blinks the next set?? Sonys have an error code of blinking to help isolate the problem... (count the number of times it blinks before pausing and let me know).
