    I have the same problem - I usually have to turn it off and then on again several times before it "takes". Spoke to repairman and he is puzzled also.

    Same problem. Five times on and off @ ten minute intervals. Then it will play all night.

If it's a DLP, I've noticed the air vents for ventilation in the bulb housing were not opened all the way when I replaced my bulb. The vents closed too much will cause the bulb to get hot and shut down the system. Try removing the bulb housing and opening the vents as much as possible to allow appropriate air flow. This solved my problem.

Magnavox television won't stay on


I know this is going to sound strange but I have something to check. If you have LED lights in your house turn them all off. When they are off turn on your TV and see if your TV stays on. Yes, there could be many problems but this one is cropping up quite a bit. If this does not work then you need to take a look at the power supply board.

My Panasonic led tv just shuts off , wait 10 mins


It could be the room temperature or the TV is placed in a box type cabinet, thus restricting the air circulation at the back of the TV. Flat screen TV's generate a lot of heat and without proper air circulation, they usually shut down to prevent damage to its components. Are you in the middle of a cold spell? Usually when it's cold, you have the heaters on hi heat, yes? Try and reduce the heat or place the TV on a cabinet with ample air circulation and then see the difference.

Turn tv on watch it for 20 mins. screen shuts off but green power light is still on. turn it off manualy wait a few mins. turn back on watch for anouther 20 mins or so then screen shuts off again


The reasion your set is shutting off is because the power supply is dieding, and you need to replace the electrolytic caps on the power supply, or purchase a new one, go to www.partstore.com sand check to see if they have your power supply.

a component inside the tv is causing a short, which in turn , is causing the protection circuit in the tv to shut it down. It could be a lot of things which are causing it, but it definately sounds as though, to me anyway, that is the cause. It could be something like a failed capacitor on the power circuit, or it maybe a IC that has a dry joint, the only way to know for sure would be to open the tv and check, not advisable if you are not trained to do this. There are high voltages in these tv's that can seriously hurt or even kill somebody. If you want you could open it and just check for bulging capacitors. they look like this

good caps look like this

to test other components would require a multimeter and a service manual to get the correct readings to check for.

Next time you ask for help though a tip would be to supply the make and model of tv in your question

Vizio M470NV just purchased, while watching TV it turns off with the Vizio light blinking between orange and white. Can not turn back on !! I have to just wait for about a minute then tv turns back on by...


I have the same issue on my Vizio M470NV. I called Vizio and they told me it is a self diagnostic test that is shutting down the TV automatically to protect it. They said they are working on fixing the issue with a firmware update that will be pushed out automatically if you are connected to the internet. No ETA given on when that would happen. I called them on the 3/14/11 and my TV is still shutting down randomly.

Hi there. i have the closest model, to LE-32B450C. Samsung LE-32C450. i guess..its europe model (im from greece). I bought the 32' TV a couple weeks back.. and now im messing with a shut down problem....


I have a few friends in the UK with the very same TV and no problem at all.
I would suspect either a power supply fault or a bad connection somewhere and I would return it for a replacement.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Lcd tv shuts down by its self


All you need to do is remove the back cover, then remove the metal cover that covered the power supply. Watch tv w/o cover, it won't shut down again. Try it and post here if it works.
