Question about Televison & Video
Sorry, No. It is usually a turn on circuit. Check to see if it has a reset button on the back somewhere, you might get lucky and it had a power surge and automatically took it off line to protect the boards. If it does, just reset it.

Most TVs of that caliber have a life expectancy of about ten years.. In 2009 we'll be passing into the HD era and that Tv won't work without a little help from an HD converter. What you're describing sounds like some transistor problems on the crt board and possibly voltage regulation. Not too expensive for a reputable shop, but my best advice would be to get an estimate first. If you need help finding a reputable shop contact NESDA, (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) they should be able to direct you to a member's shop in your area. Its like going to the AMA to find a doctor. If the cost is more than half the cost of buying new - get a new one... Good Luck Bill

The problem with sets of this vintage is parts. There are a number of possible reasons for the loss of color. Some are simple and parts are still available, others are not. Considering the labor cost for any TV repair these days, I'd say that you got your money's worth out of this set and invest in a new one. If you'd like, post the model number and maybe I can get you the probable defective parts along with their replacement costs.

5 blinks indicates that your system has detected fault on Chroma board (Chroma board is the only board connected at the rear part of CRT). Often there are loose connection on IC terminals. Re-soldering of ic terminals can fix your problem.

If you are sure that the tv and its source are not set to Wide or 16:9 then this is a hardware defect - the vertical deflection circuit is failing and it will have to be replaced. And no, there is no danger in keeping the tv in this status - it can even function with the circuit completely out without causing any problem elsewhere.
The fix isn't complicated or very expensive (a new circuit will cost less than $25), just that a new circuit will be difficult to unsolder and very difficult to find as a spare part. Because of that you will have to call a repairman and that is going to cost you about $200 - get a quote from several ones and select the cheapest.. You should decide if the tv is worth that bill.
