Goodmans GLCD32WDVBT keeps turning itself off after 5 minutes

My girfriend just bought this tv on ebay and about every 5minutes it turns itself off. i think its got something to do that we cant recive a digital signal for the build in freeview.
but it even turns off if we watch a dvd. i checked if it was in ''sleeper mode'' but that doesnt seem to be the problem.
maybe somebody has the same problem or a fix for it. as i dont know if its a fault with the tv and i have to return it to the sller or if its just something tahts in the settings

thanks for any help. its driving me mad!

ps could find this model in the product field. but its a GLCD32WDVBT

    thanks for the quick reply. i was hoping it would just be something to do with tv not getting a digital signal and turning itself of thinking the tv isnt doing anything. and that there might be some kind of a fix by tricking it.

Sorry this don't seem like a settings fault but possibly a power supply fault I think before you send it back to the ebay seller you should weight up the cost of this telly on ther retail market and the cost of repalcement with the possible repair cost you could still have a bargain maybe not the one you hoped for but a bargain never the less from what you say if it actualy stays on for 5 minutes before shutting down the problem is not major , just a component heating by the sound of it ?. You could always get a free estimate for the repair and find out what it is and then send it back if it is too exspensive .. if you check the terms and conditions of ebay and the returns conditions this may be a positive course of action and it will tell you how much time you have to return it ... hope this helps Regards ..

My goodmans tv switched itself off and won't work

Make sure that the electricity is working
Make sure that every connection is in place the
scart connection as well.
Disconnect and wait for 2-5 minutes
and connect and start.

If that does not work look for troubleshooing in the manual or click on the name of your TV here at the top of the page.
good luck
