Hi there and welcome to Just Answer. Thanks for asking your question. I'm sorry to hear about your TV.

To help you I need two important pieces of info:


1. Full model number of TV (look on the back).


2. The number of times the red light blinks before pausing and repeating.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

model KV24FS100 made in2002, seial #4135324. dhassis BA6


red light blinks 2 times every 3 seconds

Ok. Thanks.


Two blinks on a BA6 indicates a short - it is usually the HOT (horizontal output transistor) which is a common failure point on CRT televisions.


On this set, the HOT is 'Q502' on the board.


It could also be a couple of other things but I would go straight to the HOT and it's associated pump up diode and circuitry close by.


Repair cost - probably $100-$200 if you take it in. Keep in mind a new 24" TV is probably under $250.


I'm sorry it isn't the best news.
