First off...the little red light is blinking 5 times, all the time. Second, the symptoms. When the screen would normally go black between commercials, it's more greenish and we've noticed the left hand side of the screen is blurry. Before we spend the bucks on a technician, we'd like to know what it is we're probably looking at for a repair.
Thanks for any assistance.

Re: Picture is going fuzzy and blinking red light...
This is the classic symptom of a CRT (picture tube)that is starting do get weak. The picture takes longer and longer to come on, it appears greenish and blurry, and it blinks on and off in different scenes, and when it is off the timer LED blinks 5 times. Sony has a circuit called "IK Blanking" which monitors and adjusts the colors in the picture tube, and shuts the picture off when the tube is getting too weak. The good news is that the Sony tubes always respond beautifully to a CRT rejuvination (recharge), and the picture returns to perfect. Since the set is 36 inches and VERY heavy, it should be serviced in-house and an appropriate charge for a service call for your set should be around $150.

Altho you do not say which light is flashing red , you have a light on the front that is for the lamp ONLY...
If you do not have the user manual , get it here & start on page 11.:=>... http://www.retrevo.com/...myTrevo.jsp?page=man
How many times does the red light come on ? It should blink a number of times, then go off for a little while, and start blinking again. The number of blinks within each cycle will help you find out what is wrong:
Number of 1-second red LED blinks followed by 2-second pause, then repeats:
2-processor thermal protection activated
3-processor not installed
4-power supply failure
7-PCA failure (ROM detected failure prior to video)
8-invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode
Hi, Symptom shows Lamp is weak in result and causing restart of TV again and again. Your TV requires new lamp as per following part number... A1085447A* LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.
Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.
Based on service manual info, it cant blinks 7 times as per symptoms, please count again blinks. It can be 5 times.
If its 7 times blink, Horizontal Deflection stopped in this case. If you want to repair it at your own, please let me know to guide you further but it is necessary you should have knowledge of electronics.
i also have the same problem with the flashing green light for a while then a different red light starts blinking on and off around 5 times....and i replaced my burnt bulb with a new one...still no picture.
