Question TV blinks

I have a Sony tv that, not every day, blinks. It goes black for a second and comes back to the show. Sometimes it only does it for a few minutes, other times for over 1/2 hr. Sometimes it repeats over and over and then other times it just blinks once or twice and stops. I have checked all cables, outlets, etc. and nothing is loose. Also it is not just one channel, it's all. I have cable in other rooms and nothing wrong there. The tv is about 18 years old. Any thoughts. All answers appreciated. Thank you.

Blinking Tv

Your Sony is starting to go south. CRT is getting weak and when this happens the AKB circuits that monitor the CRT current blank the picture when emission gets low. If you were to turn up the screen control you might prolong getting a new tube or Tv. Turn the screen control up just very slightly.
