Question about Samsung HP-R5072 50 in. Plasma HDTV
I've had the set since Christmas and this problem just started. After a variable length of time, the set will power itself off and then back on. The routine lasts about 10 seconds and once it begins, it will continue every 5-8 minutes. I have done a reset, unplugged the power for an hour and taken the batteries out of the remote trying to pinpoint and clear the problem. Any ideas out there? The set does feel warm to hot on the back panel...but I'm not sure what the standard temp would be for the set while operating normally.
You have a problem internally caused by heating (set is on for a few minutes) and then cooling (set turns itself off for a few minutes). Most likely a "cold solder joint" or a bad component on the power supply board. Locating it yourself can be difficult. If still under warentee you'll need to take it in or have them come out. (whatever is in your contract) They'll simply replace a circuit board instead of trying to fix it.
