There are many things in the set that can cause this. Some components have become thermo sensitive with age, and are drifting back in to specs as their temperature increases from having power applied.

To troubleshoot for this type of fault can take a fair number of hours of work for an experienced tech. Then there will be the cost of the parts involved.

Eventually there will be a total failure. With age the CRT also becomes weak, and this contributes to the problem.

There is a point where the set will have to be changed. Your set will be sort of expensive to service.

I've had this TV for several years. Lately it started to show ''invalid input'' whenever I turn the TV on. It would go away after a few minutes but not before switching inputs on its own. Same kind of...


Unplug it ,take the back off, look at the fuse,if open,replace it with same amperage,check the IC,s. To do this you will need a ohm meter, depending on the age of the tv, I might look into geting a replacement,also check all capacitors for swolen or puffed up,leaking parts,when replaceing certain parts,take note of how they came out - + hope this helps...

2003 saturn ion will not start somtimes


The security interlock on the ignition switch goes bad. The ignition switch needs replaced. (about $35 from the dealer) It takes about 30 minutes to replace and another 30 minutes to "learn" your key. The car locks out for 10 minutes when it fails so if you look in th emanual there is a procedure to override the lockout but it won't work for 10 minutes. Google the problem there are procedures for the switch replacement and learning the key with the new ignition switch.

Power on problem


Many of the later model Sony TV?s have a built in self-diagnosis function. AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks 5 times for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. In other words, the IC chips on the Cboard are burned out. This repair is not one that should be attempted by the end user. This repair will need special test equipment. You will need to take it in for repair. It shouldn't cost more than $170-$200. This is cheaper than a new TV set.
