Hi. Basically I bought my TV new about 3 years ago from Best Buy in LA. Everything has been fine until the other day when the standby timer light blinks as soon as I turn the tv power remote on, and the picture goes in and out in 10 second intervals. The sound does not change, it's only the picture. I did hear a few loud clicks coming from the tv, over the last few weeks. Is there anything that I can do? Thank you.

It sounds like the on-off switch that my son destroyed at age 3 by constant on off. It was a Trinitron. It was still running at least 13 years later after I replaced the switch. But it also sounds like a voltage leak due to a high moisture environment. The high voltage leak pulls a higher load and causes a protection device to open the circuit etc until everything has dried out. If I had to guess, it is a flyback transformer causing the problem.
Hi, In this situation many possibilities could be there like:but one thing is sure that the area of problem is "Vertical Section" 1-PF could be short/open 2- Collector volts are not present due to open/short 3- Capacitor could be popped. If you are tech person then check the Vertical Section and you will find the caused component. And if you are not an expert then i suggest you to contact any expert because fault finding is a bit difficult and can only perform by an expert. Thanks for using fixya.
I had the same issue earlier this week. 4 year old sony trinitron wega 32 in. I was told by Sony to call technician to repair and have called tech....could be anywhere from $200-$300 repair. I did research the blinks (google "sony blinking codes" to find out what each means) Ours was 6-7 blinks which meant power surge to tv. I advised to Sony that i saw many of the same issues with many of the newer tv's and suggested a recall issue--they denied and where no help. I will buy a new tv now--definitly not a Sony.
