Question about Sylvania SRT4127P TV
This is actually for an SRT4127W. For awhile now, after turning on my Sylvania 27" television, it will work perfectly for anywhere from 10min-2hrs. Usually it will work for about 45min. Then it will inexplicably turn off. It won't turn back on immediately. Hitting the power button on both the remote and the front of the TV causes a clicking noise like it will turn on, but never does, and just stays off. It wont turn on for awhile. It takes anywhere from 45min to a couple of days for it to work again. Any ideas?? Also, smacking it around seems to help...lol. If i hit the sides a bit, sometimes it will turn back on. Any suggestions? I have taken the back off of the television, the only fuse i have seen seems to be fine, and all connections/plugs seem to be firmly connected.
Just keep smack'in it around, it works for me. It is the 'protection overload circuit' taking over and shutting the TV set off. This is because it detected a short or near-short circuit somewhere. Most common is high voltage, deflection amplifiers and main power supply. It's pretty much a common fix for an experienced tv repairman. It might set me back in the ballpark of $200 - $300.
