    While I was reading some other post about this problem, one guy said to try using a hairdryer on the right side of the TV for a few minutes to dry out humidity, becuse the trinitron has some kind of feature that causes it to 'protect itself' when too much humidity is in the air.
    Hmmmmm sounded silly, but we had nothing to lose and tried it.

    Lo and behold, our TV is back on.

My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, they are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.

Wall timer makes lights blink


Timer is wired incorrectly.
Single pole wiring does not use the red wire. Red wire is capped off.
Copy following link to see specific wiring illustrations for ST01C timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#wire

Related but not same problem:
In some 3-way wiring installations, if the power goes out, or if the bulb burns out, the timer can click. The lights do not blink because power is out or bulb is bad. Simply flip the 3-way switch to stop clicking sound. Then change light bulb, or wait for power to resume.

Hi,did you close the door cover?Make sure itsproperly shut other wise it won't tv light up. Reset the lamp
timer? you can do this by unpluging the set for 5 min
and plug it back(works for most sets). Was the fan
running ok? You can clean it w an air pressure
can. If you heard clicking or like wanting to turn on the problem could be with the board that powers the lamp.The board it's called the ballast.If its not able
to provide the power to the lamp it will not turn it on
and the red light will blink.Also did you get the original Philips lamp if you got a generic that
could be your problem.God Bless you!

Sound but no picture -red ''Timer/Stand by'' light keeps blinking


In all honestly, it could be a problem on one of three boards, and or one of the CRT's being bad. I would call a professional to be sure which it is. As far as cost, it could run into a good amount of money depending on what the exact problem part and labor to replace it.
Hope this helps,
