Question about Televison & Video
Hope someone can help me my tv just started turning itself off after like 3-5 seconds If I let it sit unplugged it stays on a bit longer then shuts off. NO timers on no sleep timer nothing Please help I cant afford to have it repaired but I want my tv back. Thank you Oh its a symphonic 20inch lcd TV
These sets that shut down or turn themselves off after a few seconds usally have a bad backlite board in them. look closely at the screen and see if one section looks darker than the rest of the screen (top middle or bottom - top seems most common in my cases). some times if you put the tv on an unused input you can see the variation of light level on the screen, but don't get confussed by looking at the screen from too great of an angle. thanks ......techman 580-243-8025

I have the same problem with mine and its 5 years old I took it apart cause i blew a fuse. I fixed the fuse and got this problem. So my fix was take the tv out back and put 43 7.61mm round in it. The tv is really messed up now but I feel a lot better and know not to buy symphonic any more.

I don't know what Brazzor used, but I believe he submitted incorrect information....I believe if he takes a closer look he'll find those 43 rounds were 7.62mm not 7.61mm...just thought I'd save someone from wasting time looking for 7.61mm...could be tough to find...
