Good evening, VYBEHENAC:

I could do a whole lot more with this problem if you will give me a make, model, model year, etc. Tell me what you are seeing!

Remember, I am sitting at a computer in the Great State of Tennessee. You are in California. Pretend I cannot see the problem one-on-one.

Now, take a deep breath, and let's start over again.

BLINKING TV

I'M SO VERY SORRY SMOKEY!
BUT I DONT HAVE THAT INFORMATION. ALL I KNOW
IS WHAT I TOLD YOU. ITS A 1985 COLORTYME TV. I CHECKED THAT BACK FOR MODEL NUMBERS AND EVERYTHING
ELES, BUT ALL THE LABLES AND TAGS ARE WORN OFF.
BUT THE TV IS BLINKING OFF AND ON, I CAN STILL SEE THE PICTURE, I JUST CANT KEEP THE PICTURE STILL. ITS NOT ROLLING OR ANYTHING JUST BLINKING.
I WISH I COULD TELL YOU MORE ABOUT MY TV. BUT
I KNOW ITS OLDER THAN MY TWO KIDS(14 & 16).

Good Evening, VYBEHENAC:

Well, you are to be congratulated for checking. Unfortunately, I cannot give you anything except general help.

Here is a website that may give you your answers. It is a complete troubleshooting guide for TV problems (and a good one to keep in your Favorites file).

I have a feeling that Chapter 25 covers your problem.
