Replace the Ssb (Small Signal Board) Philips p/n#313912725871 common problem.. The surface eletrolytic caps go bad and after awhile heat sends their equivilent series resistance too high and the sound fades or drops out... It's about a $250.00 dollar board plus core and your alternative would be to pull it and send it in to PTS electronics for a rebuild. Sorry for the bad news. Please don't kill the messenger, I simply work on them... Bill

Likely you have a heat related issue in the tuner. The picture cutting out is related to the tuner board over heating and signalling the power board to switch it off. The solution is to get better heat control on your TV. Try using a fan to see of this improves anything, and get a better ventilation to your tuner.

Sanyo dp50747 glitch, cut on it will cut off

Sounds like a power supply regulator board fault. If the supply output from it is not normal, this kind of fault can occur. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details, check this link.
