Question about Sony KV-35S26 35" TV
I have audio but no video, when powering up, the system stays in standby mode and the red light blinks and re relay will not cut over for the tube to come on. Tried tapping on the cct board and sometimes the video will come on for a bit.
I have had a similar problem for three years with my KV-35S66 (purchased 12/99). With my TV, I get no picture and the red LED flashes, but it doesn't cut out -- it will keep on blinking. Sound comes through fine.
My fix is to put a space heater right in front of the TV for an hour or two, then turn the TV on (or off and then on again).
It appears to be something in the electronics that needs to be warm to work properly. Once the TV is on , the TV stays warm enough to keep the picture (i.e., you can remove the space heater). I just leave the TV on constantly (it is in the basement and doesn't bother me, and my satellite displays a screen saver). TV is otherwise fine and the electric cost is much less than buying a new TV.
You could turn off and then heat up when needed, I suppose, but that takes some planning ahead.

Is your picture somewhat weak ? This could be a problem with the picture tube . One thing you can try is to turn the screen control up just alittle at a time to see if the picture comes in . Once it does turn off and back on to see it it comes back on again . It might take 10 to 20 seconds but if it does your picture tube is weak . The control is on the flyback transformer it is the bottom control . Or it may be on the crt board on the picture tube . One thing to check once the picture comes is the video input . If you go to this mode and see faint white lines might want to try to turn the control down a little more to see if you can get them out and the picture stays on , if not thats how going to have to watch it . These picture tubes are expensive $500.00 to 700.00 depending on which one you have . One possible other thing if you tell me the picture was a great picture almost like brand new check the horizontal section for a loose connection as this will cause this problem . Don't get shocked and be carefull , Good luck
