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?

Re: Television turning off whilst being viewed

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.

Power turns off right away

Its correct, Sony is no more selling plasma and I think many companies has already shut plasma production and CRT TV as well.
All TV manufacturers are busy in LCD TVs.

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.

ViewSonic NextVision N4060w 40 in. LCD TV, will not turn on.

While this isnt an exact fix at work, you will at least be able to view your tv. We have one at work that would do nothing when you hit the power on button, just the usual geen led flashing. We pulled the cover off and found the bulging caps, more than likely from brown outs. But we also found that none were holding a charge. So we held the power button on for at least five min, after the led would stay on for about 30 sec and then turn off. We kept hitting the power button and the screen would try to come on. It finally did. After it did come one we can power on and power off aslong as we dont turn it off for more than 10 min. After 10 min of it being off we have hold down power button again and start the whole process again. So the main problem i believe is the caps arent holding a charge, to be able to kick the high voltage circuit on. We did not replace any caps but if we do end up changing parts will post what was changed and cost. Hope this helps
