My tv turned off and won't turn back on. There is an orange light still on

It sounds like the power supply board has failed. On TVs that are this age this is a very common problem. Contact the extended warranty company and have them send a tech out.

I get sound but no picture then the tv shuts off after 5min. It is a Mitsubishi wd-73837

Popping noises are not a good sign; I suspect the sound came from the catastrophic death of an electrolytic capacitor or worse, the death a a power semiconductor.
Open the lower cabinet and using a good light, look for a smaller, separate board with fairly large parts on it; some cylindrical in shape, others block-like that may have copper wire showing.
If, as common, this board is plugged with connectors into other parts of the system, you may be able to swap the failed board out for a replacement bought from a Mitsubishi service center.Expect to pay $100-$150 US if the set is no longer under warranty.

My 40' vivo tv has turned off and won't turn back on but the red stand by light is on??

If the standby light is on and it does not respond, it is most likely to be a problem with the power supply . First try this, unplug and leave the set like that for a few hours. Then plug it back in to see if the tv attempts to turn on when you try to power it up. See if you hear a "click" even if it goes back to standby. Let me know what you found so that I can help you test the power supply board to confirm, if necessary.

Television will not fully power up to standby mode. Standby power indicator light repeatedly blinks in a weakish manner as if trying to fully turn on, along with simultaneously sync-ed popping noise, when...

It seems that your unit has some sort of Video side, PSU fault, or a problem to the Video section that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. It is the sound that gives it away. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. It is probably the PSU.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Sony KDF-E55A20 No picture or sound

The little flashing light down on front of your TV will tell you the problem by the color of the light or the blinking intervals, this is the reason you can not turn it off is telling you something. The manual should have a section dedicated to this part, most likely is the bulb, the bulb is easy to access generally hold by one or tow screws you can pull it out to verify the integrity of the bulb. Then again check the LED light before anything then you go from there.
