Question about Televison & Video
Randomly goes to standby, I turn it back on light flashes bout 6x then get picture, then could be on for half hour or 2mins and will do again. No timers are set and are turned off. Tried unplugging it and the usual tricks..... At a loss!
I have your service manual but I can't find any reference to 9 flashes, are you sure it is 9 with out a pause?
see below from manual.....

1. Place set on flat solid surface (garage floor or driveway).
2. Bang into it with SUV 3 or 4 times.
3. If set fails to respond, crush against garage wall or drive over it

The relay is in the power supply area. I am sure that the fault is not the relay.
It is very common that there are various components starting to go off spec from age. Most of the failures are in the scan amplifiers and power supply areas.
It is also possible that the CRT emission is too low from age. What happens is that it is on the minimum edge and this explains why the set may turn on some of the time.
When the main uPC in the set sees any potential fault conditions it will go in to a protection mode to prevent damage and to be safe. Your set is probably borderline to operate.
Considering the age of your set, I would be shopping for a new TV set.
