The Power/High Voltage board is the main cause of this. Most of these boards must be sent to Sony to be refurbished because Sony no longer manufactures the board.
I hope this helps,

The tv won't turn on because the light for the stand by timer is on. When we try to turn it on, it makes a loud click sound then turns off right away without displaying anything. What can we do?

Please try to switch the TV on with the help of Remote control when the stand by timer is on. Also get the On/Off switch checked up. It may not be making contact because of loose spring. You may have to get it replaced. Since your stand by timer is getting lit that means the power is coming to the set and the safety fuse is OK. The switch is not making the contact.
