help with Sony T.V....blinking VIDEO on screen

i've searched the forums & cannot find anyone who has listed the same problem...

my Sony TV-27in. Trinitron-OLDER model is blinking. The screen blinks when it is powered on. I just noticed that it has started doing this when it has been on for a while now. BUT now when it blinks(after being on a while) at the top left of the screen VIDEO is displayed. it continues to blink and then stops on its own. Its getting really annoying so any help with this would be greatly appreciated..thanks

Sounds like a typical Sony problem. People spent alot of money on these sets back in the day and I tried to warn them about their failure rates back when I worked at Circuit City.....oh well.

This problem can not be properly diagnosed over a internet forum because it requires taking electrical reading on certain components in your set.

Does it blink black?

It could be your high voltage & horizontal output transistor but a qualified tech should look at it.

It may be cheap to fix, or you might as well through this dinosaur in the garbage.

Simple fix

Your Sony Tv has a circuit that takes into account the AGE of your PICTURE TUBE.
Your picture tube is weak and the fix is to turn up the screen control on the FLYBACK tranformer just a tad. It will stop the blinking and you can get a few more years out of your SONY which probably up into now never had a problem. Some SONYS have given great service for over 15years like the older sets your parents had that lasted that long.
