Question about Flat Panel Televisions

2 Answers

My Go Video 32" flat screen HDTV will stay on for 5 to 10 seconds then shuts off!

At first my tv would cut off a few times after being on for about 5-10 secs then I get up and turn it on using the tv's on/off switch. (remote controls power button didn't work for this problem) after maybe 5 go rounds it would stay on but eventually it got to the point where it would not stay on for more than 10 secs at all. (Even after 20+ attempts) It seems like its trying to get warm in order to stay on but it won't stay on long enough to get warmed up. (I'm guessing)
Its a fairly new tv that we got from a rental place and for the first 6 months it worked fine and then slowly started developing this problem. I noticed in the begging when I would turn it on and off quickly the tv would stay on, don't know if that helps diagnose the problem but anything you suggest would help.

    I have the same problem with our 32 inch Hyundai LCD. In order to get it on again I have to keep hitting the reset button on the back of the TV and hope eventually, after many, many attempts, it stays on. It's simply a matter of 'hit or miss' since I have no idea what's causing the problem, nor do I know what to do to stop it. So, any help resolving this would be very much appreciated at this time.

Why does my vizio tv only stay on for a few seconds before the picture goes fuzzy and the tv makes a very loud screeching noise and shuts itself off

Sounds like the power supply board has gone out. It can probably be replaced, but only by someone qualified to do so.

The failure with this LCD might be due to a failing power supply or backlight inverter board. Since your TV is less then a year old, I would suggest to call the manufacturer to get it fix under warranty.
Good Luck.

Element hdtv flx3210 shuts video off after a few seconds.

Send the set back for service.

The power supply most likely failed, or another circuit board has failed and the set is in the protect mode.

I would consider to see if the dealer would exchange the set for a well known quality brand name set and pay the difference.
