Pink screen no celcus tv

It is likely the main board has failed. The cost to repair is close to the cost to replace. Even if you attempt a repair what about the rest of the components that likely near the end of their life span?

Sony kdf-e42a10 green light blinking, followed by solid red lamp light - tv will not respond to power button

Follow instructions in owner manual and remove and inspect lamp to see if shattered inside.

Most of these sets have a 2,000 hour life span on the lamp which is customer replaceable.

Have a Sony Bravia KDF-50E2010 rear projection tv. Will not switch on, blank screen, flashing red light. What is wrong and will it be expensive to rectify. thanks.

Unfortunately from the description it sounds like the bulb has died. The red light is the customary indicator of a dead bulb. Usually you will get a warning from the TV but that is only a timer based warning and doesn't reflect the actual bulb life.
These are not cheap bulbs but you can find some excellent deals on-line if you search the model number of your TV in your search engine. I would caution you against anything that is "remanufactured" or "rebuilt" as these have questionable reliability and generally a shorter life span which will negate the cost savings.

Screen turns off and on Sony KDF E55A20

It is symptom of dying lamp and tv requires new lamp.
Existing lamp in tv has reached to end of its life span and causing that problem. If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years, just put new lamp in tv to get it back in business.

Phillips 42'' TV. Two year old an needs an inverter. Would this be classed as an inherent problem?

The backlights inverter boards and the power supply are the most common failure in ANY LCD TV, average life is about 3 years. Thses two parts run hot and caused short life span.
Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.
