    Thanks. Actually, it turns out that the issue was not the TV, but the DirecTV unit. The TV was not turning off. It was losing signal from the satellite unit. The DirecTV unit had been on for more than a day. I turned it off for a few minutes, and when it came back up, it was fine.

Sounds like bad capacitors in nthe power supply, or maybe a regulator in the power supply. Have a tech take a look at this TV set for you, as there are no user replacable parts available in the TV set. Good Luck

Shuts off and on while trying to watch, the power light flashes 30 times when off then the tv comes back on again


Power supply trouble. The TV keeps trying to start then operates for 2 seconds and shuts down. The cycle keeps repeating until eventually the TV will not start at all.

All three lights blinking picture only stays


I was having this same problem - power cycling - exactly as described. The lamp turns on and the picture looks good for the 5-10 seconds it is on (this makes me question all the comments I've seen online saying it is a bad lamp that needs replaced).

Problems started with green lines on analog channels and erratic behavior that included freezing and shutting off occasionally. Now, it is to the point where I get 5-10 seconds of picture, then it freezes and starts the power cycle 5-6 times, chiming every time it automatically turns on, before finally remaining off. I have removed the back, dusted off fans/components/etc, supplied additional fan for airflow, and made sure the blue switch in the back is down. Still having the same problem!

Ok. I went through the standard warranty process, which means they sent me a replacement bulb saying that was the issue. No luck...same power cycling. Finally they sent a tech out who took a look and said he needed to replace the digital board. So, 2 weeks later, the part came in and the repairman came back out to install it. Voila, I have a tv again. (This is the same fix the supervisor at the call center said it needed months ago...before they sent me the lamp)

So...I would recommend having the tv's digital board checked. Especially if your tv is still under warranty, as it cost me $0.00 to fix. Chances are, they are still going to start by having you replace the lamp. Good luck!

Tv shuts off after 10-20 minutes


its not the problem with ur electron gun tube or with any picture ic or sound ic. Every t.v. is microcontoller switched machine.
any damage to microcontroller ic that controls the switching will lead to this kind of problem.
0.01% chance of residue EHT voltage would have affected the microcontroller.

It's simple. Your TV does not like you. Perhaps you need to speak kindly to it before you force it to watch BBC for hours. Buy it a scone.
