You guys have the same problem.
Unfortunately bad CRT. You can get a tech to regenerate it and it'll work for another year or 5-8 month after that... garbage.

Small screen inside of screen

I think you might be referring to what's called, 'picture in picture (PIP). Its a feature of the TV that allows one to see what is on other channels while your current channel stays on the screen. Refer to your manual of how to disable, or if no manual, play with the remote to see what button eliminates it.

Remove other picture

With the Sony Remote (brand indicated here) select the PIP button to turn that feature off.

The PIP is on the screen and I can not figure out how to get it off.

When I had a Trinitron, I had to push the PIP button more than once to cycle it through all of the PIP options and then it would go away. Cancel or menu doesn't work...has to be pushing the PIP button. Hope this helps.

Just started flickering and then black screens - still hear audio, just not picture. Turning it off for awhile lets it come back up..for awhile.

Ur high voltage is dying,it the FBT,the flyback transformer is cold solder or dying.The big black block of plastic with a red wire with a cap that hook to the CRT(tv tube).That the cause.

Screen flickers upon power up

Looks like your picture tube is dying, or there is a bust capacitor(s) inside...I'd recommend taking it to a service shop to get it repaired.

WEGA 36" : Screen is low contrast and green

Sorry to say, it sounds like a bad picture tube, But could be also the capacitor that filters the screen voltage on the crt drivers. In all my years though, your complaint has been the picture tube. Good Luck.
