Given the vintage of set it might be hard to even get parts for it. And being a Sony, it is traditionally very expensive to repair and not really cost effective. Best bet is to give set a decent burial and shop for a new set.

STANDBY TIMER IS A CONSTANT FLASHING
This older model the light should blink at turn on for 10-15 seconds before picture appears.
The set is checking for certain voltages and other things---if any are missing it will not come up.
This is like saying car will not start--the Battery? Or?
Someone would have to go inside and check voltages first and then check to see if horz or vertical drive etc.
May be too old a set as some parts for it no longer available.

Standby button flashes tv not
The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Something smoked and smelled in
Your convergence board has shorted out. I have seen this problem in my TV repair. I have not repaired this TV in quite some time. But I assure you I have answered your question. The convergence board is located in the back of the TV. It should be located on the right rear side. It will take some real effort to remove. If I remember..there are two sets of fuses and they will be burned. You will know you have removed the correct board.Then you may send this board off to PTS electronics for a rebuild. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Sounds like the convergence ICs may need to be resoldered. Often the pins on the ICs can develop small cracks at the pins which will cause them to drop out then come back randomly
