Tv won't power up. Keep clicking with red timer light flashing off and on with every click. What could be problem? Fixable or is TV toast?

I Get a similar problem with my Philips TV, which I believe is a relay playing up. I find pulling the power and leaving it ten minutes usually discharged the capacitor holding the relay open and when I plug it in again, all is well. Had the issue for 3 years, it always works for me

Turn the tv on picture come on all red and fuzzy and then couple seconds later tv turns off and then turns back on with no picture just red screen then turns off and wont turn back on for ten min

It indicates a short at the Red picture tube--set has three picture tubes and each has a socket which processes signal to each tube--each has a single IC chip---in your case either the chip on the red board or the red tube.

If a bright red screen the set will detect something is pulling way too much current and shut the set down for protection---called a shutdown circuit.......

you have to shut your main power down at the breaker box. It can be off for about ten min.

I hope this works for you.
