Television turning off whilst being viewed

A month ago, we bought the above and have already have had to have it changed for a replacement, as it kept going off whilst being viewed and had to be switched on again.   The new one has done the same at least 7 times since last Wednesday.   Is there an inherent problem with this particular model, or Samsungs in general?

    Hadn't thought of that Kehalim - will give it a try. Noelle

    Thanks for your reply.   Ours doesn't turn itself back on, but goes on to standby and we have to turn it on again with the remote, then it is on a different channel when it comes back on.   But we'll try unplugging it too and see if that works. 

    I just wondered whether this fault was particular to Samsung, or even just this particular model, as we have someone coming from the shop later today and wondered whether we may have to think about getting a different make or model instead.  Though it will be a shame as it is a nice looking TV.

    Once again thanks for your input.

    And.....thanks too, to Kehalim...I forgot to say thanks yesterday

    my Samsung tv 50 inch, keeps turning off many times at night.  How to fix this problem?



2 Answers

I have a Samsung 40"LCD and have been experiencing a simillar problem for the last 5 months, after turning on and viewing the TV for about 50-60 mins. the TV will turn itself off and immidately turn back on  and will star on until you turn it off. It will do this everytime you turn the TV on. Well my friend fixes TV's told me to unplug it and let it sit for about 30 min's then plug it back in and see if it still do it. Well it has been 2wk's and it haven't happen once so i think that is the solution.

This might sound weird but can you locate the infra-red sensor and glue something on it so it doesn't respond to your remote control? A different device in the neighbroud might turn it off.

Mitsubishi WD 57731 - No power.

Seems that your television core was burned out.
If so, you'll have to change the core entirely, or it might be (in most cases) just the power supply inside the television.
Ask te shop you bought it from, they'll change it for free if you have warranty. If not, you'll be required to buy a new power supply, which costs around $50.
How long have you sed this television for?

Burning rubber smell whilst going up hill

This sounds like an oil leak. Look for leaks at valve covers, and other areas above the exhaust. It often is the burning off of this small volume of oil, that makes the smell like you describe. Inspect the whole exhaust...Something is melting, somewhere.

Tv not turning on

I also have this model. A few months ago, when I turned on the tv, it told me my lamp was in need of replacement. just yesterday, my tv did the same as you....the blue light flashed and then the lamp light kept flickering. All I can say is your lamp needs to be replaced.

Flashing Standby Light (6 times every 2 second interval)

A 6 flash error indicates a problem with the backlight. Your set is less than a year old and still in warranty, so you should contact Sony and arrange for a service call to get it repaired.

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.

Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.

Tag heuer carrera automatic wv211a

Your watch is a automatic. All automatics need to wind-up before being worn at first , or if not worn all the time. Automatics will work with-out being wound ,but will not keep time. Wind your watch at least 50 turns (using the crown) or shake about 150 times , and then try it . Automatics need that back-up power to insure it's accuracy.
