Problem with tv turning off by itself.

I haven't had my tv longer than a year, however, it just shuts off by itself.  What's up with this?

Re: Problem with tv turning off by itself.

First of all, you should try making sure in your menu that you do NOT have your timer set to shut off.  You'd be surprised how many people call Zenith every single day and fuss at me because their tv is 'broken' and they have a timer set.  Secondly, it sounds to me like it could be an issue with your power supply.  Does it turn itself back on randomly as well?  Do you hear any popping sounds when it turns off?  Check with your manufacturer to see what their repair warranty is.  Some have full warranties for 90 days parts and labor, and some have it parts and labor warranties for a full year.  You'd be surprised how much the customer service agents working for your tv's manufacturer actually know about the product.  Give them a call for sure to get more information! :)

Why does my Sony 57" Hi-Scan 1080i? 16:9 Projection Television keep turning itself off. I turn it on and after 10 min it shuts itself off I can turn it back on but the longer it is on the quicker it shuts...

Sounds like a heat problem. Check to make sure that if it has a internal fan that it is working, and clean any dust build up, most projection tv's have fans, usually the number of flashes indicate a code that repeats.

Bad grounds and bad caps will cause the problems in this tv. You will need to replace several caps and resolder the tuner itself and that means taking the tuner out in some cases and rework it. This is very time consuming and needs great care not to destroy the tuner. And reinstall the tuner to the board. You need the cap check to locate bad caps and visual to see bad grounds on any Ic on heatsinks. If you are a do it yourselfer fine.. If you cannot do this I would just replace the tv.

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

Magnavox 19" TV shuts itself off.....won't stay on

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
