Re: Turns on but not picture or sound. Power LED blinks

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.

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.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

PT-53WX52F Power LED blinking 2 times

I think your problem requires a call to the manufacturer. My sony tv was blinging 4x and I noticed that I was losing picture. I thought perhaps a short or cable problem, but when I called sony the number of blinks indicated a picture tube that was going to blow. I did not wait I said good bye to a good television and purchased a new one as the repair would cost more than a new TV. You might be luckier 2 blinks could indicate something else. Good Luck!
