I have a Vega Trinitron XBR KV-36XBR250 30 inch

I have a Vega Trinitron XBR KV-36XBR250 36 inch that is 10 years old. We have had no problem with it until now. The picture flashes on and off and the display (4) appears - then this repeats. The sound is fine. It seems fine for a while until we change a station or forward the DVR. The red light stays on with no blinking. We had the cable guy come out thinking it was the DVR connection, but to no avail. Do we need a new remote for the TV??

Its a Good Chance your CRT is shorting out,You can try replacing CRT board on Neck of picture tube, sometimes you get lucky and its CRT socket pinns on crt board, but I would replace crt board first and If it is Picture Tube, Its Not Worth fixing! Most of the time Hori output will short along with FBT being bad then if you replace them then you find out TUBE is bad and that was what caused other parts to go out!

But first if you can solder, resolder all poor connection Look for any swollen or puffed up capacitors if you see any like that they are Bad, then its up to you about getting crt board.

    Solder is what you have to do on Boards to repair or remove Bad Parts.

No picture or sound when powered up. Red Standby light flashes continually. My Sony KV 36 XBR250 Wega Trinitron XBR is about 10 years old and has worked perfectly up to this point. What could be the...

Did you get your set fixed or did you replace it? My same set did the same thing. Turned it off for 2-3hrs after watching it and when I tried to power it up- nothing but the sound it would normally make just before the major power up, sort of a relay click sound. No picture or sound but the red light blinks non-stop.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?

The 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem in the horizontal circuit. Since the TV recovered once, the problem is most likely to be a bad solder connection in that area. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this and we'll look elsewhere for defective parts.
