Question about Televison & Video
I'd appreciate some advice for an irritating problem I have with my Philips 26PFL5522D/05 LCD TV.
Most times (I'd say 4 out 5) after the TV has been on for about 5 seconds, it goes into standby for a few seconds and the powers back up. The remote doesn't work until the TV has powered itself back up.
Also very occassionally it goes into an "auto update mode" and tries to download a firmware update. I've left it in this mode for hours but it doesn't manage to download an update. The only solution I've found is to turn the TV off at the socket, leave for a minute or so and then turn back on.
Don't know if the 2 issues are connected so thought I'd describe both problems in the same post.
The Philips website offers no advice!
Any pearls of wisdom?

Yes it is a temp problem as you found out for your self Great call on that BUD.. the best thing to do is contact sharp to see if they have had simular problems and if there are any recalls on this model . If not they will instruct you where to send the monitor into to be fixed.

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos turns itself off
How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).
1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board
You can buy the parts online and fix if yourself!!
