On/off Having a problem with set turning on,then after about 1/2 hour or so it will shut off.wait a few seconds or so and it will come back on by itself.or use the front switch ,or remote. Seems like something heating up,then shuts off.Thought it was the panel switch(it was broken) so I put new one in. But it does it even when using remote? HELLLLPPPPP.

Re: on/off

Sounds like you either have a bad solder connection heating up and becoming an open circuit or a capacitor that is going bad as it heats up. Either way, you'll probably need a tech to properly troubleshoot it.

Sony lcd projection tv repeatedly turning on & off

There are 2 primary things that can cause this problem - a bad TEMP sensor that is sensing too much heat, OR, a lamp that is going bad, which sometimes causes excessive heat before it dies. Either way, the set will shut itself off, and you can turn it back on in about 5 min or so, and it will work OK....for another period of time before it shuts off again.

You need a good TV Tech with the Sony Service Codes for your set, to come out & check your set. The Service Codes will tell him the exact problem you are having, and how many hours your set has been running. Most of the time a new bulb solves this problem, (if youe set is at least 3 years old).

The unit most likely has a short in the horizontal section and would require repair by a service center. Go here to find a JVC repair center in your area
