Hello, you have a power supply problem, in some cases it is the power supply and something else,but first take a  good look at capacitors one the power supply, you probably will find two defective caps.3300 uf/10volts replace them with 3300uf/16volts 105 degrees. if you can not do this, call the repairman, this would cost you about $300.00 dollars if there is nothing else wrong with the set.  good luck

It sounds like you have a power supply board that is failing. When components like capacitors are weak they work better as they warm up. They eventually get too weak and wont warm up.
