someone needs to open it but it sounds like a part arcing which was not uncommon in those sets====you would have to decide if you want to attempt to have it repaired----some shops will not repair a set that old and unless you really want it done---I would replace it.
From the way you describe the problem, it seems you have a high voltage
leak. To check this, make the room dark and look into the back of the
TV while turning it on. If you see something like lighting jumping
around you have this high voltage problem. The TV will eventually
destroy itself under this condition. I would suggest not using it until
you get it repaired. The repair cost will be much lower if the TV is
still working when you take it in. The high voltage leak will destroy
more parts and cause the TV to stop working. Then it will blow a fuse.
