Is it a Sony Trinitron KV-32V75 or something like it?
Made about 11/98? (manufacture date on back of set.) My brother-in-law had the same EXACT problem, last fall. Had to replace it. It was only six years old too. Had to buy a new set before X-mas. Repairs would have cost him more money than he paid for it!
just wondering if anyone would know what would be wrong with my tv. it is 6 years old and now whenever i turn it on, the picture continues to flash black the whole time i am watching it. sometimes it does it slowly sometimes quickly. i may go a few minutes b/f it starts up again but it will not go away. the sound remains on, just the picture flashes. i believe the picture tube is going out but just wondering if anyone else had any other suggestions?
