I moved the television from my bedroom to the living room. All of a sudden all of my picture settings are messed up! First: My picture, in standby video mode, flickers. The "black" is flickering! Second: I get a doubling with on screen type, I can not correct it with sharpness. Third: I can't set my tv to a THX optimizer, because the brightness won't stabalize, see "First" above. Last:The tv was not on since the day before when I moved it, I didn't drop it or tilt it for that matter either. It works this way with either satellite dish hooked up to it through coax or my dvd player to it with the S-video.

If you have got a good aerial, the high gain type- see image, it should run all the TV's you say. Make certain you have decent cable coming off the aerial (the stuff they use for satalite dishes). Then buy some high quality splitters, to feed the TV's. Don't split the cable outdoors!
You will need to split the signal with a 900mgz splitter between the living room and other room. if your pic is fuzzy you have a bad splitter or bad cable, try replacing these one at a time and it should clear up. If your getting a sat pic but ti is fuzzy its for sure in the line somewhere fro teh splitter.
I have had the same problem I have two bell receivers one in the bedroom and one in the living room, in low light the remote in the living room would work much like yours, but if I took the same remote into the bedroom it worked fine in low light, the second remote responded exactly the same, the problem in my situation was the TV had a light sensor that adjusts the picture depending on the light in the room, with this option turned off. The remote works just fine in low light situation.
Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard. After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again? The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation. Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.
your tv may have ben magnetized by the lightning strike.
tv's have an automatic degaussing circuit that demagnetizes
the pix tube when the set is turned on. this degaussing circuit
may not be working or magnetism may have been too strong for
the internal degaussing to correct.
contact local tv repair shop in your area see if they can manually degauss your set , it should be a min. service charge around $25.
