1999 Sony Trinitron Color TV Model #KV-35S40

Last week I was watching tv late at night and the tv worked fine- the
next morning it would not turn on -we get no picture or sound and 
when you turn it onthe red light keeps flashing - a repair man will
come to home for a $45.00 service charge to just look at it - and then
charge additional for any repair - have already decided not to spend a
lot on it - any suggestions-Thanks

A Continuous blink once a

A Continuous blink once a second, no pausing means no reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.  most likely a short in the power supply and sorry to say, this is not a job for a handy person.  Please play it safe Sue55 and call in a trained servicer to repair this set for you.  Good Luck and please keep us informed.

Hi I have 37 inch sony

Hi I have 37 inch sony trinitron color tv model kv-35s26 that when I turn it on the standby light blinks on and off for like 2 to 3 minutes after the 2 to 3 min go on the screen turns on. When the screen turns on it starts to blink on and off but the sound works fine. In the back of the tv is the tube and theres a little knob that you can turn when I turn it the blinking goes slower but keeps blinking and if you countinue to turn it the screen goes black and some lines that go horizontal in blue green and red appear. If you know what wrong with it can you explain it to me and also can you tell me how to fix the problem. Thank you for your help

Sounds like there is a

Sounds like there is a problem in the video 1K circuit, or the picture tube is bad.  Without you knowing how a circuit works, I cannot explain exactly how you can fix something. You will need to get and know how to use a multimeter, have a service manual and know how to read it.  Have an ESR capacitor meter and know how to use it.  This is not rocket science but it is not as easy as changing tubes like in the old days.  If you understand drive circuit, you can check the picture tube with a restorer /analizer.  You will need an ociliscope to look at the video if there is a problem there.  it is just way to muck guesswork on problems like this.  A TV set is not the place to be experimenting around inside of. Play it safe and call in a trained tech to assist you in this repair.  Good Luck, and let us know how you made out with this repair.

My Sony Trinitron KV-32S40

My Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 has the following problem:
Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
How do I fix it? I called 3 different TV service places and they want a minimum $150 just to come take a look. They all said Sony dosen't make parts for a TV over 5years old. Is my TV's problem fixable or is it time to replace it...UGH!?

I have a 32' Sony Trinitron

I have a 32' Sony Trinitron tube from 14 years ago. These days the picture takes a long time to appear after I turn on the power and it sometimes disappears when I watch it forcing me to turn the power off and start the TV again.

Why does this happen, is it just on its way out?
