It made its usual light 'thud' noise and sound was present b4 any picture came on, then it made a short crackle noise & went off altogether. Now the standby button is pulsing, 2 flashes & a pause & repeating. Tried switching oo/off manually but nothing is happening. Anyone out there got any ideas on whats wrong or if its terminally gone. I bought the set brand new about 4 years ago thinking that buying a Sony I could expect a good few years out of it without any problems,tho this is the first time its gone wrong I'm a bit miffed
