I used to be an electronics engineer, but rarely worked on TV's.

I have a Thomson 28WF45U CRT TV that has a very slow startup i.e. 5 minutes or more before I get a picture. As it's warming up it constantly flashes out 'error 26' on it's green/amber LED .

When it has warmed up, it works for about 10 seconds before shutting down and flashing error 25 on the red standby LED.

It's almost impossible to get it into diagnostic mode to read out any stored error codes as it shuts down so fast.

Do you think both faults are related, and would it be a relatively inexpensive repair?
The first fault (error 26) has been happening for about a year, the second (error 25) just a few days.
