    Same problem. I thought it was due to overheating too. Turn off TV and back on again then it works for another 10-15 minutes then goes out again (assuming again from overheating). When first turned on, it goes for as long as two or three hours, but then cuts out and gets gradually worse (faster) cutting out each time.

    Would love to know how to solve this one.

There is a small fan in every tv (like a computer) that cools the circuitboard in your tv. if your tv is dusty around the vented areas then air might not be getting in it to allow it to cool. if this fan is not working then your circuit board is not getting cooled at all and just will continue to over heat until it shuts off. at some point it will shutoff for good. so if it is a heat issue getit looked at by a tv repair shop. its a simple and cheap fix. but it could also just be a loose fuse in ur tv that pops out due to shaking around the house or high volume. in this case depending on wat kind of tv you have you can fix it urself or take it to a tv repair shop or send it back to the manufacturer(hopefully you sent in the warranty).

The TV has power but no picture, but on video mode it's fine.

Set is on then, are you using a box of any sort for signal? If so unplug the set and it for several minutes and power back--a box can do this.

Westinghouse LCD TV SK-32H540S, 1 year old. When I turn it on, the screen works for about 5 seconds, then goes dark; power is on - sound still works but no picture

1 swollen Capacitors / Replace
2 blown Diodes on inverter board / on some # 508 or 908
3 bad transistors in inverter bad will appear overheated powdery coat
4 replace inverter if you cannot locate problem on it
there is a safety built into the high power back light supply and that is if too much current is drawn or light is shorted it will not burn up
or hazard high volt shock to user.
capacitors and diodes driven with power transistors
look for darkened spots on the board to identify hot transistors
puffy tops and leaky bottoms of capacitors

when you turn it on does the bottom or top of the screen show image a Milli second before the other it should be evenly the lag
is the one requiring more amperage

Vizio 32" lcd picture inverted

it would appear that your tv has a "Thermal" fault.i.e when a component gets hot it breaks down or a component is overheating. These tv,s are normally in "modular" form and as such the faulty module needs to be replaced by a qualified person.
