Sorry to take so long to get to you. Most sony Tuve TV's are pretty good performers for colour. If you are into that sort of thing, so can be worthwhile fixing. If it has power supply problems, may cost you up to $200 to fix. Rule of thumb, if repairs are more than half the replacement cost, it is uneconomic to repair.
The beeping sound is most likely the high voltage generator needing replacement. This is a fairly easy job if you have some tech support to discharge the picture tube. You can go to the following link and leave them an email with your model number and your symptom and they will email you back with the part you need and they provide free tech support with instant messageing so you can do the repair yourself. the HV generator takes about a half hr to replace and takes only the basic soldering ability. heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
Jar-Head, bad news, the picture tube has a mild short in the green cathode, tech can come out and try to restore it but it`s usually a futile attempt on sony tubes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, BMW Rider
