TV keeps shutting off

My tv keeps shutting off for no reason. Seems like it happens after it has been on for a while. It will flicker off a couple times and come right back on and then it will shut off completely and I have to wait a couple of minutes before I can turn it back on.

Re: TV keeps shutting off

Most of the time you have bad solder connections on the chasis pannels you have to pull them out and inspect them and resolder them.

Samsung tv is shutting off all the time.

Do you have enough air flow to cool it?
It may be overheating....add a fan blowing into it and see if that keeps it on.If it does put a strong small computer fan in somewhere to keep it cool.

Sony KP75HW40 unstable red. (not the usual problem)

I would suggest either the Focus block or the RED CRT drive board either one of those items could cause the symptom. A defective CRT could also, but a shorted CRT doesnt usually go back to being normal

Color flickers on and off

I went to the Sony support page for your model.(link below)
They are undergoing maintenance right now, so I couldn't find any answers for you. I would check back with the website to see if they can help you. If the Standby timer light flashes, you may need to have the TV repaired. There is a "Hot Topics" section for "How to troubleshoot television picture issues" that will probably be very helpful to you.

We have a Hitachi C28W1TN, which is just under 10 years old that has recently started switching itself off. It goes onto standby by itself and when we switch it back on, it instantly does it again. At...

It's been a while since this post, but I may have had a similar problem with my Hitachi. With no reason it would switching on and off randomly. The problem was with a solder joint on main relay - it was cracked and would not keep the coil powered so i kept flickering on/off. This relay is located on the front of pcb, between high voltage area and the switch and on my tv it is blue. Check all four joints and apply some new solder onto them. Make sure the tv is not connected to mains ;-) Hope this helps

Projection TV keeps shutting down

Good Day;

Sounds like you have a bad green picture tube that has failed. To check this out; remove front speaker grill, remove small panel, you will see three CRT's (pictue tubes) sticking down, remove the little board on the middle tube then restore power. If TV stays on more then likely the CRT is bad but not always the driver on board could also be bad, check voltages.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
