TV SHuts OFF, 8 flashes, Blue screen

Can see and hear picture, then the screen fades to Blues and shuts off, a couple of times the sound stayed on. I still get 8 flashes from the standby button. Cant get the set to stay on long enough to list codes. (not sure im getting it right either). Audio Amp IC406, please expand on this component, what should I check for, I need a schematic or picture.

Your help is greatly appreciated, just ordered cable and the TV is going out!! ahhhhhh!

TV screen Flashes blue and then shuts off.

When it flashes blue, are the flashes bright blue lines going across the screen with the picture in the background, if so, It sounds like the Blue tube or blue driver circuit is breaking down after a short period of time. If this is the case, the uPC that controls the set is detecting a large current drain on and is shutting the set off for protection, An engineers expert eye is required I`m afraid. Ian.

Flashes blue and then the tv shuts down

The tech is correct about the internal short inside the blue CRT. There is a way to remove that short by applying a small amount of current to burn the short but that might damage the CRT even more. At this point the CRT needs to be replace.
I will post the instructions on how to remove that short but you will need to have a good regulated power supply and limit the amount of current to 1 to 2 amps.
