Tv shuts down

Whilewatching for a few hours it will shut down, the voice still comes thru, but picture is blank. Shut the TV off for a minute and works fine after that. But last night shut down at least 4 times in two hours. It is away from all and noit close to a heater.

    After being on for two hours the TV just shuts down and makes me wate about 5 min before I can turn it back on and then it will only last for 30 min until it does it again. I sent it in to Circit Citi to be fixed and they said they had to replace the main bord and now it is doing it again one month later.

    Tv worked fine for 1 1/2 years now it shuts off after only 30-45 seconds. We called Samsung, they said it was the bulb needing to be replaced. We ordered a new one and installed it. Same problem. Called Sears, who we purchased it through. Had a warrenty, but mother cancelled it. Now we're screwed with a 1400.00 tv that is just collecting dust.

Does the main board have the flyback on it? if so the yokes or CRTs can be intermittently shorting which in turn triggers your shut-down.
turning it off or unplugging just resets the shut down circuit.
