Same problem here. PX-42VM2A (NEC PlasmaSync 42MP2) Turns on (status light green) then goes to standby mode (status light red) after what sounds like some electrical relays clicking over. Opened it up and no glaringly obvious problem, but i'm no components technician so... Any ideas? Anyone want to buy it for parts or need a specific part? email me: 318noire<at>gmail<dot>com

LG 55LE5400 tv

It's a power problem , not sure of the model . The TV shuts itself down to save itself . It goes through a series of self checks before power up and if those aren't made it shuts down. If you are unsure of how and why I would suggest you take it to a pro

My Sony 55' inch ergs won't power up. It starts to then shuts down. I've already replaced the bulb. Please help.

if you replaced the lamp you must need to reset the lamp hours. then if already done but still shut down you must check if no bad or burnt parts at the lamp ballast board. then make sure the fan is working.

Reset the TV to its factory settings. For more details, refer its user manual. Unplug the TV from AC mains socket, and replug it after some time, say after 2 minutes or so.

Philips 47MF437B Hi, this Tv will all turn for about 1-3 minutes then shut down. Any suggestions? Thanks

The tv is shutting down due to overload exerted on it by the components on a particualr voltage line. Possible locations are power supply board or the main audio/video board. The first thing you should check for are faulty capacitors on the two board. Look for capacitors that are swollen or cracked at the top. Even tiny holes at the top mean that the capacitor is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I just bought a used Toshiba 52" HD Flat Screen Floor Model tv. It shuts off on it's own and I've had to unplug the tv and then plug it back in for it to turn back on. Help or suggestions on what I should...

This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand,

TV shut off randomly. Unplugged for a while, worked for 2 minutes then shut off again.

Random shut down can be caused by faulty power adapter, faulty inverter and faulty controller board, add buttons, shorts, bad fan and IR sensor.

The TV must be tested to find out the problem.

I suggest contacting Sanyo by calling the number listed on the owners manual.

Parts and part price available here.

Gateway monitor fpd2185w goes to sleep and then shuts off

I suggest to mess around with the monitor buttons and see if you can disable it from sleeping from there. If not then try enabling it to sleep on your computer settings. A good restart after any changes is always helpful.
