Question about Sony KV-36FS16 36" TV
It first started that when I turned my TV on that it would blink in and out a few times and then go back to a normal picture;however, now the tv continually blinks on and off every 5-10 seconds. The display shows up in the corner of the screen and when i use my remote to take display off, the tv will be fine for about a minute and then the display will show up again in the corner, and the blinking returns. Any help on this problem would be great!
Sounds like the sets motor boating from the power supply like a bad regulator IC or a bad capacitor.

Tips for a great answer:
If the power light blinks slowly,
you've tried to turn on the TV during
the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait
approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.
If light blinks, pauses for about a
minute, and blinks again: the lamp is
trying to turn on (TV will turn on
when successful). If TV doesn't turn
on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.
