You have an impending power supply failure.
I would not leave the set on and unattended. There are mulitple protective measures against bursting into flame but I trust none of them completely.

I just answered a few other complaints similar to yours and pasted some of my response below-
-----
I'm afraid you are right suspecting the power supply; most modern sets use switching power supplies and they often fail when the source AC is screwy.
It might not have been the low-normal-low-normal swings but an unseen, short term surge that killed it.
The cycling is occurring to prevent a potential fire or more severe damage; a component has been whacked and the supply is detecting a fault condition, probably excessive current from some circuit.
I'm afraid you are stuck with a repair, if it was mine, I'd look inside first but some basic instruments are needed and technical background.

I highly recommend to homeowners that they install a 'whole house" surge protector. Especially in lightning prone areas.
With installation, around $200-300 US although an intelligent person can do it, it will require shutting down the home.

The surge protectors range from ~$110-200; most have a long warranty and many include insurance to cover items damaged despite the protection.

Powermac G5 screen shaking


This sounds possibly like a power related issue. If you are using a simple power strip to plug into, consider replacing it with an Uninterruptible Power Supply (aka Battery Backup, UPS). AC power related issues can cause screen waviness or shaking. Be sure to obtain the proper capacity unit for your needs. These units are rated in Volt AMPS and come in sizes from 300VA to 1500VA in the consumer product line. APC, Belkin, Triplite, CyberPower are some popular brands. The VA capacity to choose should be considered over price alone. Buying the cheapest one vs the right capacity can result in not having a unit capable of protecting your devices plugged into it. Understand these have 2 primary functions,
1. surge-protection
2. battery backup during a power related problem
There are 2 different banks of receptacles on these units.
1. Some for surge protection AND battery backup
2. Some for surge protection ONLY
Your computer would be plugged into the surge AND battery backup receptacles. When a power related incident occurs, the unit quickly switches the devices plugged into these receptacles off of AC power to the batteries, until the power issue is resolved. The time on battery is limited based on the VA capacity mentioned earlier in this solution. So buying the largest VA capacity unit you can afford will simply give you more available time on battery before the batteries are exhausted and must be recharged. On the other hand buying the smallest VA unit could result in an immediate and unexpected shut down of the computer if a power related issue occurs and the battery backup cannot handle the devices plugged into it. NEVER use these units for battery backup of Laser Printers or other high curent devices. These can destroy the battery backup.
I hope this helps with your screen issue.

My linksys router WRT120N is having power light stable but no other lights are neither blinking nor stable!!! need your help


At power up the device runs a self test, it take a minute or so. What is it connected to, what is sending the signal, a cable modem, DSL, etc.? If you have cables runing from the Cable modem or whatever, to the linksys, try another cable, OR, reboot the cable modem, unplug, remove battery, if applicable, remove power from the WRT120N, Insert battery into the modem, plug in, wait for the self test, plug in the Linksys, wait for self test. Connect a ethernet cable from the linksys to the computer. Does it connect? Try to connect wirelessly, Does it connect? Is the Linksys secured with a passcode? If you push the reset button , and hold for a minute, in the rear of the device, it will reset the Linksys to default settings. Try to connect. Did the Linksys work at one time? Did you set it up? Is it on a surge protector? Have you had any Electrical storms? Surges? It may be bad, hard to say until you verify all the steps. Who is your internet provider? Have you verified that they are sending a signal? Comcast will verify ,by phone, that the signal is good and run check on the cable modem.

Flat screen tv power surged


Is it just the cable? Do you have a DVD player or game system connected? If so, how do they look? Ofter a momentary power loss can cause cableboxes to loss picture, loss sound, and even cause the picture to be distorted. Try unpluggind the AC power from the cablebox and TV. Wait about 5 minutes and reconnect both. Leave the cablebox alone for about another 5 minute after you reconnect it so that it can fully boot up. Then see if you still have the problem.

Picture goes off and on every couple of seconds


If you are hooked up to a HD source if the signal is too high will cause this to happen. Normally this will happen due to signal interuptions such as signal being low will cause freeze, too high will cause it to go out and cause the TV to show default blue.
Good luck to you.

N o picture just static noise


The symptom sounds like a dead tuner and the screen blanking may be due to missing video synchronization signals which may cause either blanking or 'blue screen' on some sets.
This could also still be because of a failing power supply although they will generally just cause no turn-on at all.
I would first substitute another TV just to be sure your signal source (cable or satellite) isn't causign the loss of signal.

I have a HDMI cable hooked between my Direct tv DVR receiver and my Samsung flat screen HD plasma tv. When I turn to Direct tv channels 100 or 200 the screen begins to flicker. My tv is 1080i. This is what...


If the TV just Flickers for a few Seconds then the Picture is Good and Stable, That is just the HDMI re-syncing often due to different signals from 480i to 1080i being broadcasted. If it continues to Flicker then check the options for Video set-up in your DTV menu. Make sure all available resolutions are checked to display or select AUTO if possible. TIP: NEVER Unplug or Plug in HDMI cables with the Power ON. This can Short out the HDMI Input leading to a Repair. Turn off All Units then plug in your cables, When ALL are in then hit the Powers.

Blinking red light


If your Sony TV is hooked up to a good signal and is set up correctly, but only clicks and has no picture or sound, and even the menu will not show up on the screen, then it means that the main power supply has stopped working. I usually find that a small crack in the solder joint of the horizontal drive transformer or a shorted flyback will cause the large horizontal output transistor to short out, and this shorts out the switching transistors in the main power supply which then causes the Sony 0.1 ohm fuse resistor to open up. I have also seen power surges or power failures (brown-outs) cause the switching transistors to short out. In any case, the set absolutely should be serviced by someone experienced in repairing Sony TV's.
