These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Check its main power regulator section circuit for any loose solder terminals. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals, by applying a little more solder to each terminals. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair! Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center!

On many Sony CRTs, the Screen (G2) voltage pot is located on the neck board instead of on the flyback transformer.

from description you are on the right track--screen con inside will either be on the crt circuit board or on the high voltage transformer, on or the other--lots of the older Sony sets when the picture tube gets weaker need this done.

You probably took out the Horizontal Output. A repair like this is between 150-195 dollars.

This fault sounds like failure of the LINE OUTPUT TRANSFORMER.
It can be fixed, but may cost you around $120, possibly more if you have to call out an engineer.
Best NOT to use the TV as it is, because it could possibly damage the system.
If you do use it, this line will become permanent and if you get the TV fixed later, there will always be a burnt section of the screen where the line was - so I suggest you either pay to get it fixed right away, or consider buying a replacement.

Hope this helps!

I believe the "Caption Vision" is selected. By pressing the "Display" button on the remote it should toggle through the choices until "Display Off" appears. That should be all.

your audio jacks are crossed reverse them around.

Hi,
I've suspect that you're high voltage is arcing. This fault is quite technical so I've advice you to look for a qualified technician to fix the problem. Arcing from the flyback is fatal.
Hope it may help you.
Thanks for using Fixya. JDVillanueva

Hi,
Your vertical sync has gone bad. This is a very technical trouble on your unit.
The possible causes is the faulty ceramic capacitor on the jungle IC or the jungle IC itself.
Finding the faulty parts on that area required the diagram.
I've advice you to send your unit to your local Sony Service Center to fix the problem.
Also consider if your unit is still under warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day! JDVillanueva

Hello there,

Sounds like some software or hard ware problem in the TV it self , so connections and Resetting can not help you with this problem.
I would try a full default of the TV SET use the user manual to find out how to default the TV Set if you want a step by step Defaulting let me know .

Thank you don't forget to rate

You must resolder the vertical IC. And check and replace any capacitors that are near and next to the vertical IC. Very common problem for this TV. And...while you are at it inspect any and all grounds on the main board and the power supply board.Resolder as necessary.Thanks for asking and good luck. Show a few hands of support.

You must resolder the vertical IC on this unit. You will find the pins are separated from the TV board. Look very close, and you will find rings around the Vertical IC pins. A very common problem with this model! Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.
