This TV that came in for repair was found to have a Horizontal Output Transistor D1878 (on board location Q522) with a short between the collector to emitter. When the defective transistor was pulled out of circuit there was still a short measured from the B+ line to ground. The deflection yoke was unplugged from the TV's main board but still the short was present.
Tracing back towards the power supply it was found out that a shorted RU3A diode on board location D921 is shorting the B+ line to ground.
Replacing the transistor D1878 and diode RU3A restored power and normal operation to the set.
