Screen flashes green and tv shuts off

I've got a 1997 (very old) 32 inch Sony that has begun to flash a green screen and then shuts off. It takes a minute or two and then I can power it back on. Sometimes it stays on and other times it just shuts down again with the same green flash. I thought maybe it was the Direct tv/tivo box so I disconnected that and it still happened. Just wondering... I'm sure I know what the answer is. Thank you.

The average life of a picture tube now days is only 6 to 7 years,base on the symptom and the age of the set I hate to tell you but your picture tube is bad and it has to be replaced but a new picture tube for this set would cost more than a brand new television,I would suggest not to spend any money and invest in a new set.Sorry

Sony Bravia KDL-60EX700 BAL Board / Flashing Green Amber

It sounds to be a firmware trouble. Will be best to contact the authorized service center for Sony, rather than trying to do it by yourself, as it is a very skilled work, need both concentration and previous experience. google.com/+GopakumarGopalan

Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.
