Re: Unit shut down after five minutes

Take the back of the TV coved off. About 12 Phillips screws. Then use a can of compressed air and clean all the dust out. You'll be shocked at how much dust there will be. Use a vacuum to suck the flying dust. Be careful not to bump anything with the vacuum hose. Robert

Re: Unit shut down after five minutes

From the brief description of your problem it sounds like you have a component in your unit which is overheating after a short time and shorting out causing the set to shut down. It could be anything. If you are not a tech you will need to find a reputable repair shop. I doubt you could find this, most techs will have problems with this one. Cost should not be that much. The biggest problem will be finding the problem. Good luck.

My Mitsubishi Medallion tv stays on for about 10 minutes and then shuts down and won't turn back on until a period of time has passed. It is a rear projection tv about 9 years old. Can anyone help ex

When it shuts off and the green power light goes off, press both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set (not the remote) and hold both for about five seconds and release.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks and then 3 blinks and repeat it several times.

What is the error code?

The tv will run for a few minutes then it will shut down .

You probably need a replace lamp or power supply board. You can buy lamp at Advanced lamp website for $115 with shiping . Replasing lamp no problem,anybody can do it. Very easy. I am not sure about Power Sypply board,but I think you can buy for $100 not sure how replased.

My Panasonic TU-PT700U Digital media Receiver shuts the TV down after 10-30 minutes and the blue light flashes 5 times repeatedly. I have to unplug the unit and let it cool for several hours before it it...

Hi, I have a spare TU-PT700U that may be of use for you to solve your problem without having to replace your system.  My Panasonic onyx series monitor was stolen out of my house, but they left behind the TU-PT700U and cable.   If interested, respond to my craigslist post..

I have the same TV and just replaced the same lampTY-LA1000.
You have to reset the clock that times the lamp.Hold down the volume button(first you turn on the TV) while holding down the PiP button or the swap Button on the remote. that fixed mine.
