SOURCE: sony tv wont start up???
It seems the high voltage flyback
autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved
to each other). Do you hear any clicking sounds?
Or else it could be that the CRT tube is faulty and will need to be repaired/replaced.
Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,
It may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise.
Hope that helps!

Contact the company that makes your tv and find out what the "code" (# of times the red light flashes) means. Then call a repair place and check prices on the part. It might be worth having them fix it for you! My tv is a phillips 50" plasma and the light was flashing 6 times witch ment "power board" the part was 318 and the labor was 195....for a tv I paid 2,000 for 23 months ago. I hope it doesnt go out in another 2 years....nice that they know it will go out and even program a "code" in it for you!!!

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.
Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1Theinternal circuits are jammed because of electrostaticcharges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage readby the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started theprotection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrongvoltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in, starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
