When that happens it could mean your bulb needs replacement. You can replace the bulb yourself on most TV just heck the back of the owners manual.

Is the set still under warranty,if so call for service if not when you turn it on try to listen near the side of the unit for a fan noise or high voltage arc sound and do you see light on the screen or in the rear of set.

This could be a High- Voltage shutdown circuit problem. The reason it will stay on longer with a bright picture, is the high voltage is slightly reduced, not allowing the shutdown circuit to shut off the set. But I believe your problems to be in the shutdown circuit.
