Re: tv turns off after about 5 minutes

I looked for that model but it isent in my data banks?? You should try to get a service schematic on the set first. Next look in the power supply and find the power supply main regulator IC. Hook up a meter to the output pin and turn the set on. If the voltage is slightly exceding the value of the IC wait and see what happens . Now right before the set shuts down, does the voltage swing high?? If it does its the IC. It should be a 125 to a 135 volt regulator and if it goes higher then 130 to 140 its bad as I said. If this voltage dosent change then the problem is in the High voltage section. Find the sweep Ic and locate the x-ray protection pin. Monitor the voltage on that and see if the voltage swings high when the set shuts down. I it does your gonna need to check out parts in the horizontal sweep circuit and if you got a scope use it. But remeber always use an isolation transformer when trouble shooting these sets or the meter or scope could blow out the power supply . Good Luck and Be carefull

Issue with Samsung LE32B450. After the TV has been on for about 5 minutes, when you change channel the screen goes blank and the sound goes off. However, the TV is still on as pressing the power but

Just do a hard reset to this set and check. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 10 minutes or so. This must make it a hard reset.

Tv turns off after 15 minutes of use

For bobby11 and luis, it is the power supply. Part Number EAY34797001 in the 42" and EAY34796801 in the 32". This is a known problem, and somebody should start a Class Action against LG over this one. Part is available online and easy to swap out for anyone with the most basic knowledge.
