Question about LG MU-50PX10C 50 in. Plasma HDTV
Randomly, my 4 year old tv shuts off and then comes back on in anywhere from 2-15 minutes later
Your Television uses a sensing circuit that is basically part of a mini-computer. Sometimes either the sensing unit can be bad itself or there is a power distribution issue.
Test - Make sure you try another input source like DVD or something other than what you are trying now. If it plays and does not shut off, the TV might be ok, it might be something to do with your other source you were using when it went out, like your cable box etc.
(most LG's have input sensing and if there is nothing coming in the TV it will shut down or go into standby)
If you have run this test my friend, you may have no choice but to take it in or have a service call. A LG specialist might bring the board you need in to repair it but that can be rare. Most of the service guys that come out are following instructions in a systematic troubleshooting guide and do not really know how to troubleshoot per say, they are card replacers until it works.
They cannot fix the problem in the home if you cannot repeat the problem in front of them and it is consistent.
You may want to call LG or Write their tech dept (good luck, they kind of are not that customer service oriented that I have seen).
I always recommend the extended warranty on a high-ticket item next time.
Hope that hepls and let me know how it goes.
