Red light blinking sony kv32s40

    I have a kv32s40 Sony TV that was purchased in late 1998. I was
    watching TV recently and it just suddenly turned off. The red light in
    front of the TV now keeps blinking and it wont respond to any other

    I googled for this problem and came across various posts, but nothing
    that satisfactorily had an answer. Some ppl found out that the TV came
    back on after a day, some people banged their TV to get it to work etc.
    I have tried the above briefly, to no avail so far, but was wondering
    if someone who has faced this probelm had a more concrete answer?

    Has anyone fixed this? Is it do-able w/basic knowledge of circuits?
    Is it worth the repair to take it to sony (if anyone has gotten it
    done, what was the cost?)

    Help is much appreciated.

    The blink code is a diagnostic, the number of blinks point a trained service
    technician to a specific circuit area to be investigated. The data for that
    information is in the service manual for your set.

    Can you pointme to where thisinformation would be in the service
    manual? I was looking at the manual and didn't find any more
    information on it.

    All it says is,

    Problem: A red light keeps flashing on the TV for more than a few
    What it could be: Your TV may need service
    What you can do: Call your local Sony service center

    Do you have the service manual or owners manual?

    Sony didn't start using diagnostic blink codes in the low end stuff
    until/around the year 2000.

    Standard troubleshooting is required for the OPs problem.
