Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV
Power on/standby indicator blinks red 4 times, pauses, then repeats 4 red blinks...I turn TV on, after warming up the screen appears for an instant and then goes dark...Then the 4 red blinks occur...Any suggestions?

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The 4 red blinks is similar to an error code. It represents what's wrong with the TV to a service tech who knows how to repair it. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.
If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need a power supply module. If the problem is one of the video circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
