It is a software problem sony was fixing for free untill 03/01/08
You can unplug your set from the outlet for 30 seconds and it will work fine untill several hours of use acrue again. Found this out on the sony website. hope it helps.

Check the options of contrast or tint, if your adjust them to your preferences then maybe it will work, or maybe it is just old. Glad if I helped.

Picture went out and red light on the front by power button is blinking. When I turn TV on I can hear sound but no picture,, then TV turns off automatically after a few seconds.

It seems problem with low screen voltage to three picture tubes in this rear projection tv.
If standby light blinks 5 times after three seconds long pause then adjust screen volts of each picture tube to solve this issue.
Screen volt adjustment requires expertise and job of professional so please call local tv repairman to help you.

Hi dogbert007,

Luckily, shielding your TV from the magnetic field produced by audio components is necessary due to the technology in a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) display. If you have an LCD television, you should not have to worry about placing them within a few feet as you plan.

Thank you,

Try turning the tv off, then unplug the tv from the wall for at least 60secs. Plug it back in. Turn it on and see if the blinking has been reset to normal.
