When the cable and tv are put on the TV light sometimes does not come on. It takes sometimes fifteen minutes for it to warm up to get the picture. What can be done to fix this, does this require a technician to the home?

Unfortunetly that sounds more like a visit to the repair depot to get it fixed. You have failed components or just about failed components probably in the power section of the main board. It probably will either require replaceig parts or the board to fix. The problem is actually the cost of the repair. It may come to about the same cost as a new replacement tv.

So what you need to do is go to the manufactuers website and find the support numbers or if they show directly the phone numbers for the local repair depots or authourized service center. You will also want to call any local tv repair shops as well. What you do is get an estimate only. Do not send it in quite yet. Then what you need to do is have a look around for what a replacment tv is worth. This sounds obvious but the repair could be $400 and a new repacement tv might sell for $299 on sale. when you have those numbers then you know if it is worth fixing or to just get a replacement.

Picture is gone! :*(

the picture tube (what makes the TV picture work) has blown out. Just call you nearest tv reapair shop and purchase a new one. (these are kind of expensive!)

(Also, if it's fifteen years old, i think it's time to get a new T.V. hint. hint.)

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.

Delay to see the picture

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

Picture Blinks for Four Minutes

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your tuner sounds like its intermittant. Only way to fix it is to replace the tuner or send it out for an overhaul.. Now this is onlty if when you say the set blinks the picture stays but turns snowy and wavy or does the set blank off and on like its turning on and off. If thats the case could be a picture tube problem or a HV shutdown because of a vert fault or a driver problem in the Horizontal curcuit.
