Your set might not be producing the high voltage it needs to light up the screen , it might be missing the supply voltage the supply volts to the output transistor ,if this voltage is missing is because the transistor is likely bad(shorted) and it has opened a fuse or a safety resistor.If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but you are not too familiar be safe and call a professional,high volts circuits are dangerous.

Phillips 52pfl5704d turns on screen blinks, no video

The replacement board could be defective. Your TV worked fine until there was a power loss so its time to troubleshoot to find out how the power loss affected the original board in theTV. There could have been a power surge.

Mitsubishi WD-62526 turns on-n-off

I would bet the illumination lamp has reached the end of it's life (~$40 online). Should be easy to replace. Also possible the ventilation vents need cleaning, which could cause the lamp to overheat and turn off.

Sound like the power supply board has gone out .Unplug the tv for 2 or 3 minutes and plug it in again and try to turn on. Some times they will come on .But It sounds like the PSB is going out .

Sony trinitron tv

If you have sound but no picture it means that your power supply and tuner are working correctly. The number of times the timer LED blinks is the code for the problem with the picture. The computer will stop the picture and blink the timer LED if the vertical circuit stops working, if the picture tube is too weak or if the horizontal sweep has stopped. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Sony sets.
