I had not used the TV for about a year. It was unplugged. When I turned it on it has a picture but it is quite faint and there are thin white horizontal lines about an inch apart on the screen from top to bottom

There is a known common problem with that model and as per Sony bulletin you need to replace L6903 with P/N 1-406-662-11 and add a small ceramic cap to location #C6931 P/N 1-115-156-11...
Any shop will understand what I've just said so take it with you when you drop the set off for repairs...
It's an inexpensive fix and well worth it.
Hope this helps.
I think you have a short somewhere inyour set most likely the horizontal output transistor which may have shorted by the high voltage transformer going bad.
The faint ticking sound that you hear is the power supply trying to start but the shorted load won't let it.
Flyback lines? Is the picture all white with no brightness control with faint horizontal faint lines? If this is what you are saying, the screen voltage could be bad, and if thats the case, the picture tube or the flyback itself could be bad. You could also have a bad connection on the crt socket
Since the TV is only 2 months pld, it must be covered under Warranty. Just take it to the Service Centre and get it fixed.
Froim your description it seems that the Horizontal Oscillator or Output section has a short circuit.
