Sony wega 36" blinking problem

I have had this set for almost 7 years and recently I noticed a blinking red light at the bottom of the set. I blinks 5 times and then stops...it does this all the time the set is on...the color has gone south also..the whites are not pink and the picture is darkening...I tried to adjust the color, brightness, etc but nothing seems to work..the manual said that the blinking light is a signal to call a tech for service..please advise...fran

    had a repair person come in to see the set and he said that the picture tube is weak and not worth fixing it...is this correct?

I have a 36" TV that won't work - Red LED light blinks 5 times

The 5 blinks indicates a White Balance Failure. This involves checking voltages and components tied directly to the CRT. I would not suggest any attempt for self repair. The cost for this repair should not be significant. Figure a parts cost in the $30-$50 range at worst.

My 32'' sony wega blinks 5 times

The 5 blinks means a problem in the set's AKB (auto kine-bias) circuit. Sony TV's monitor the operation of the picture tube. When some kind of trouble has been detected, the TV blanks the screen and flashes the 5 blink error code. This may be due to problems in the video circuit, a bad picture tube, or adjustments that have changed due to aging of parts. There isn't anything I can suggest you try on your own to fix it. Because several things may cause the problem, and the proper tools and service information needed to troubleshoot, you should refer this repair to a professional.

SONY WEGA KV-36HS420 will not come on

The blinking is an indication that the set detected a problem. The code usually indicates a bad regulator circuit. If yu can solder, you can probably fix this your self. Please let me know if you wish to attempt the repair. If not, expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range plus the local labor rate for the repair.

Color variation and blinking red light on bottom of tv

The light flashing 5 times is normal at turn on as the set is monitoring current drain on the pictures tube cathodes. Any speakers near the set that have un-shielded magnets could possibly cause color issues.
