It sounds like something internal is off. It is sensing that it's still over heated which its not which is why it continues to stay on well after the cool down period. That can happen to the older generations of this model since it was not yet fixed. There is a huge possibility that it might have a firm ware upgrade to fix that problem for free. You can contact the manufacturer regarding that information either they can send it to you, mail a CD with it on there, or you can click onto it off of their website if it's available on there immediately.

Have you unplugged it for a while then plugged it back into the wall? Some times that can fix the problem. Chances are, if it continues to stay on that it's something internal that can not be fixed since it might be a really small internal chip or board.

Let us know how it goes. You can always contact the manufacturers auth. service centers since they are familiar with the technology you currently own. Most places will look at it, and if its totally non fixable allow you to just discard it otherwise charge you nothing. If it needs to be repaired it depends on where you bring it, it could be per hour or potentially a flat rate plus costs of parts.

Let me know how it goes. I'm eager to hear if the unplugging it might reset it. That can help some times in the product.

Also, any other weird issues going on with it? Vertical lines on the set or blots here and there on the screen that appears to be internal? That can really tell that it might be the mother board slowly going out.

Hello

If the power light blinks slowly,

you've tried to turn on the TV during

the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait

approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.

If light blinks, pauses for about a

minute, and blinks again: the lamp is

trying to turn on (TV will turn on

when successful). If TV doesn't turn

on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.

To order lamp call 1-800-338-0376.

Have your TV serial number

and lamp type available (you'll

find this information on the

sticker that's on the right side of
the TV).
OK.

I have a HP PL4245N plasma HD TV. sometimes while watching it just shuts itself off screen goes black and will not turn back on unless I unplug it wait 20 seconds and plug back. Then it works fine. it...


Hello
I thinks you may be right. All plasma and LCD panel tVs will have cooling fans at the top side. Plasma screens will heat up much more, and if cooling fans stops work, of has damaged, the set will overheat, and awill automatically shut down; because there is a overheat sensor fitted inside it, will sense the heat, and if the set overheats, it will send a signal to the main system control fo the TV; which in turn shut down the whole system. look fans for proper working. If not replace them. OK.

I have a LG 37LBDA lcd tv should fan run with tv off


Hello

The fans are turned on and off by a thermostat that tells the tv the boards are hot inside. I helps prolong the life of the tv and the system while not perfect does work well. As long as the tv is plugged in to the wall it is possible for the fans to run.

If you turn the tv off (put it in standby mode) the cards are still warm from working and many brand tv's will continue to run the fans ... So if yours run a bit, I would not worry. If they run for HOURS then you better dig further. It doesnt hurt to vaccum back there from time to time... Free up the holes...

Hope this helps
