Electronics Pete : Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!I am Pete, a TV expert, and I'm happy to assist with your question today.
Electronics Pete : When you have a timer set, the timer light will stay lit.
Electronics Pete : When the standby/timer light is blinking, this indicates that there is a fault with the TV.
Electronics Pete : The most likely cause of this problem is a fault with the power supply circuitry, however it will require diagnostic testing by a TV technician to confirm this.
Electronics Pete : As your TV is not a flatscreen, I am guessing it is at least a few years old, and the cost of repairing this set may end up being almost as much as a new flatscreen set.
Electronics Pete : You will need to consider whether it is worth having it repaired, or if it is time to replace it.
Customer: So it is the tv - looks like I need a new one?
Electronics Pete : Yes .
