Customer reply replied 8 years ago
yes .

since 30 mins now we are talking the red light was flickering and the tv didinot switch on again
i have just unplug anthing again and left it unplugged now
TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
This is a 3 crt rear projection
the most common failure is a shorted conv drive IC

I dont know if that is what you got
but
it would require hands on troubleshooting to go further
do you have a DVM ?
and electronics repair expereince>?
otherwise you want to refer service to a servicer
it will run around 300.00 -400.00 if the ic's are bad or if the crt is bad even more
