    I was given a SSL2006, and it turns on for about 10 minutes the first time, then shuts down. Turning the power on again allows it to work for another 10-30 seconds before shutting down again. Almost like something overheats?

I have a Vizio E551A TV When I turn it on the pwr light will light and get a dim backlight but it turns off in about 5 seconds then cycles I have changed the power supply board and the main board and...

Your TV is suffering from LEDs not lighting. Remember the Christmas lights, one goes out, and rest are out. In some cases you can purchase these lamps in strips. Lately it has been difficult to obtain these. It is very time consuming to replace and repair this TV. Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV.

Should I fix my TV or buy anew one?

Before you buy a new TV go through all the TV menu options to see if it has automatic dimming depending on the amount of light in the room. If it does it may be malfunctioning and turning that feature off may fix the problem.

Sylvania SSL2006 dead, won't turn on. fuse is ok,

Hi larry
Since you know electronics that will make the explanation simpler;
On your tv model there is a very common problem that you may want to look at;
There is a small board on the right hand side(backlight inverter board),
Look for a shorted D309 , it is a 9.1volts 1watt zener diode.
As i said it is a common problem for your model.
But there is also the power supply;
All lcd tv`s nowadays it seems end up with bad capacitors in the power supply,
You can recognize them by their rounded tops and you`ll find them at the output of the power supply along the 5/12 and 24volts line.
But especially on the 5 volts line.
If your not sure which ones then replace them all (there might be 6 or 7 of them) it won`t hurt and eventually they will go anyway.
Hope this help good luck

I turn on tv shuts off after 30-45min. red lite goes dim

It's likely that the TV will require service since your troubleshooting steps didn't resolve the problem. If your TV is smaller than 30", you may carry it in to the retailer of purchase for repairs. Otherwise, service for your TV can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

DLP tv trouble shooting

Yes it could be a cooling problem, If your tv has any filters remove & clean them ensure fan can turn freely & that nothing can or is snagging it.
