    I have tried that allready. I took out the cable card in the back of the tv. I then turned it on and the picture and sound stayed on for about 8 seconds. The screen then goes black, the power button flashes blue for about 4 seconds then the picture comes on again and starts all over again. I replaced the cable card, but same results.

    A tv repair shop said they thought it was the brain. $450-$600 to replace over the phone estimate. The tv seems to be searching for a signal.

    I have checked that also. I even plugged another tv into the cable, and it works fine.

    You cant even get the menu to come up on the tv.

  • meike May 29, 2008

    I tried to use the remote on the tv. When you push menu, the menu screen will flash on for about 3 seconds until the power light starts to blink, then goes to black until the power light stops flashing then you can try it all over again. Small window of time to do anything until the power light starts flashing again and recycles all over again.

My Sony KP-53S35 turns on, shows a blue screen, turns off


It sounds like the blue CRT (picture tube) is failing. The part number for this is 8-733-575-25 but you will need a technician to replace it for you as there is mechanical and electrical alignment to with with it. At that point it probably isn't cost effective to repair the TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

My sony tv stars blinking 5 times in a row, then the picture goes black for a second comes back then goes black again and it keeps doing it non stop


tv has a blanking picture mute circuit. adjust the screen controls which are located behind the speaker grill in front of set. there will be a access panel to unscrew in center and then you will see a black 4 inch square box with 6 physical knobs. 3 control screen the other 3 controls focus for red, green, blue. turn them down and slowly start turning them up. fixed.

MY problem with Sony KP-53S35 53 in. Rear Projection Television. When the TV powers on, the red light blinks until the picture comes on, then the red light blinks go off. I had to wait more than 5 minutes...


the number of flashes of the red indicator lamp points to the possible cause of the delay of the raster or picture, but usually it's an indicator of an emission unbalance between crt(picture tube) guns. the picture will take longer to show up as the emission on either of the picture tubes goes down.

Tv screen will not stop blinking


It sounds definitely like a faulty power connection via the video cable from the inside. If it blinks a while then turns black then shows the picture, it would have to be that it's not screwed on properly, thus taking more time for it to get a full charge and then properly function. If you still have the warranty, any electric repair/retailer shop can fix it for you.
