It sound like you have abad picture tube. Iknow this is not the answer that you want to hear. Sony's have video blanking circuit built into the video processor(in the jungle IC) when the emission of all three gun fall out of an acceptaable range. the screen blinks and when you turn the screen control on the IHVT all you see is re-trace. Some times there is a current limiting resistor in series with on lead of the heater on the crt board. By changing this resistor from 2.2 ohm to >.1 ohm @1/2 watt you can sometimes increse the filament voltage to the point that the blanking stops. This is only a temporary cure not a fix. The picture tube is probably bad. Scrivitron

When i turn on my tv the sound comes on and about the time the picture would come on the whole tv shuts off and then the standby light blinks 5 time between pauses

5 blinks error means that there has been a white balance error triggered either due to faulty video ICs on either of the CRT boards or the CRT drive IC on the A-board is faulty. I do have the service manual and can help you fix it if you know how to use a multimeter and solder. I should also tell you that this is high voltage electronic device(especially the near the CRT boards). The CRTs act as giant capacitors and hold voltages of upto 30,000V for several days after the set has been unplugged. I did not mean to scare you but I just wanted to give you a headsup!

My TV screen went black and now the bottom light that is usually green, now blinks red 5 times in a row. Can you please tell me what is wrong w/ it?

5 times red standby light blinking shows problem with ballast supply board in Sony KDF-E50A10 model tv, ballast supply board provides high voltage to lamp to produce high bright light.
Please check/ replace ballast supply board in tv by local tv repairman.

TV shuts itself light blinks 7 times.

The 7 blinks usually indicates a high voltage shutdown situation. Without the specific model, I can;t give you details about parts etc. The options are a defective flyback transformer or problem with the voltage regulation circuits. Please update this with the model number and I'll post additional details as soon as I can.

TV will not come on.

The 7 blinks indicate a high voltage shutdown (high voltage exceeded 33,000V). This is usually caused by a defective regulator. Could you please post the exact model number (KVxxx) and I'll look up the part you will likely need?

No picture

The power supply or sweep power supply blew up, or the Horizontal/high voltage circuit went bad. If you have no tV repair experience, call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
