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.

Re: tv shuts down

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.

Can dust build up on a picture tube's circuit board cause them to overheat and shut the tv down.

dust will not cause an issue like this in this type of set--RCA? it means a short of some type exists and the set shuts down or blanks the tubes--all you have described as far as appearance is normal.

RCA sets like this can be difficult to repair and also if you Google the model number you will see they have a lot of "problems".

Samsung hl-s5087w.... Tv is 4.5 years old, and is about 200 hours into its 3rd bulb. Yesterday, very similar to when the bulbs burnt out, it shut off. I thought that it may be getting too hot, so after it...

Above the light is a temp sensor with a blue and white wire plug. This sensor is the problem for all these shut downs in my opinion. Pull out plug and jump it with a wire or paper clip bypassing sensor. Tv should work now!!!!

* Most common would be a couple of capacitors in the power supply that are not letting the proper voltage to the lamp.
