Probaly a solder connection on your chassis. look closely around the fly back, horizontal driver transformer and the verticle and horizontal yoke connections

I have a 10 yr old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA 32" Flat

Hello jorge and welcome to FixYa. With your particular model of television six blinks mean a Horizontal Drive Failure has occurred. If you have any television repair experience you could try checking the jungle for loose or possibly bad soldering. In some case the jungle IC was found to be defective on this model as well. You should also inspect the horizontal drive transformer windings if at all possible. If you are unable to repair this yourself I would personally say to you no it is not worth the cost to repair it as purchasing a new television would probaly be a more prudent decision. I hope you found this helpful and thank you for visiting FixYa.

My Sony trinitron tube Tv 36" seems to be going (its 10 years old

no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony...
it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone
then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..

Sony FD Trinitron Wega degasses and goes to standby, blinking 6 times. Worth reparing this almost seven yr old set?

Rather get a quote first , then you can decide whether you need a new set or not ?
After SONY sets work like dogs especially if you use them alot. Think about a replacement cost ?
I would say get a quote before you decide.

Sony FD Trinitron Wega model KV-34BR800

Sony Wega Triniton KV-32FS100 TV

For the last week my TV has been going to a black screen for 10 seconds or so then the picture returns. It has been continual. Last night it stopped going to black screen, but now the standby light flashes 5 consecutive times and the color went haywire. A lot of red and everything that is suppose to be black is green.

I did a soft and hard reset with no success. What's wrong and is it worth fixing? Bought new in November 2002.

Sony Trinitron KV32S42 Picture Blinks on and off 60 times per minute

You can find the date of manufacture in the back label,if the set is a 1990 maybe then is not worth repairing but is only a 2002 set is only 4 yeras old and the set has most likely a good picture tube,the symptom you are giving us does not indicate a bad picture tube,you should get a second opinion ,it might something as simple as a loose conection in the horizontal drive transformer.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
