Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
My television is just over a year old, and is now turning itself off and on. When you turn the power on, the power/standby button flashes then it turns itself off. After about 30 seconds to a minute it will turn itself back on and then back off, and repeats.
This may be the main digital module, I would suspect that this set is a couple years old and would be having issues with maybe the SSB module in that case, unplugging the set for 1 min might help, but I bet that it will require service.

Tips for a great answer:
The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV.
The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.
If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.
Thanks for using Fixya.
