Most likely a weak picture tube. The good news is that the Sony picture tubes react beautifully to a CRT rejuvinator and that will give you more time with your set. Have the set serviced and the CRT rejuvinated by a qualified tech.

I have a Sony Bravia kdl-40xbr9, when I turn it on it shows no picture or sound , the green light and Sony logo turn on normally. When I take the power cord out and put it back again , the Bravia sign and...

It sounds very much like a main digital board problem. Who advised you to replace the power[G] board and T'Con board; I don't know. I've went through this fault; a few months back with my carrier, but failed make it right because, the main board was not available either at the open electronic spare part market, or by the authorized service centre for Sony here, in my country. The people at the service centre asked me the set to be to their custody for repair; and I refused. They won't sell the main board outside; they say. What to do? It is still in my workshop.
So I advice you to contact the authorized service centre; in this case. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Can dust cause Sony Trinitron 34" tv to go black and make popping sounds?

Dust rarely affects this kind of set---this model had high voltage problems---and if popping I would unplug it.

To be honest this set weighs a ton and is expensive to fix, average repair can be well over 200 dollars.

A lot of them now are being retired and replaced with LCD sets etc.

Sony kdf e50a12u New bulb but until tv has warmed up (10 min.) it intermittenly loses sound but not picture

The lamp of course will or should not affect the sound---next time it is cold try it on a rear input---a DVD player etc to see if same issue--this could narrow down where the problem is.

Sony wega 28 inch colours wrong, circle on screen

It sounds that there is some magnet near by TV that is affecting picture tube. Please remove any extra speaker or any thing that has strong magnet inside, unplug TV for 20-30 minutes, replug back in, turn it ON, hope that will solve your TV problem.

SONY Projection TV keeps turning off.

Our Sony TV kept going on and off too. Repairman replaced the lamp, even though red light was never on. Problem solved.

Sony support insisted it was not the lamp if red lamp light was not on. Don't believe it. Picture and sound would go on for 30 seconds, then off for 30 seconds. The new lamp did fix the problem.

Picture has green tint on startup

Jar-Head, bad news, the picture tube has a mild short in the green cathode, tech can come out and try to restore it but it`s usually a futile attempt on sony tubes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, BMW Rider

No sound or picture now

The set may have shorted the horizontal out put transistor since it kept coming on sometimes. This could be cause by the driver transformer arcing causing a "spike" in voltage going to you horizoltal out put transistor. Stargazer
