I have no idea how to fix this :(
Re: My Thorn TV keeps switching itself off after only a...
Just a quick try - make sure that the plug is securely in the wall socket - and the back of the TV, if it has a removable cord. The next suggestion would be to make sure that all timers are off. the last thing to look at is ventilation and to make sure the unit is not right on top/close to a heat source. All basic suggestions, but sometime we overlook the simplist things.

In order (stop if one works):
1. Recharge at least an hour from power adaptor rather than USB computer lead.
2. Reset by holding down Sleep/Wake button on top right of tablet while at the same time pressing down home button. Keep both depressed 15 seconds. If slider appears or screen dims, keep pressing till Apple appears.
3. Restart (display not working) by pressing and holding Sleep/Wake button till power off slider appears. Drag slider to right. Wait 2 minutes. Press and hold Sleep/wake button till Apple appears.
4. Recovery Mode. With device powered down, hold sleep/wake button down and drag slider to off position. Then plug USB into a computer (do not have usb cable connected to iPad yet) running latest version of iTunes. Hold down Home button while plugging USB cable into iPad. Keep Home button down until Connect to iTunes appears. If does not appear, start Recovery Mode procedure again. When Lightning cable, arrow, and iTunes appears, release Home. Click OK to restore to factory defaults (erases data). Restore data from earlier backup. (Summary of method from Phone Cruncher site.)
Sadly you cannot, though if you have been backing up your device you can use the options attached below.
If you've never synced with iTunes or set up Find My iPhone in iCloud, you'll need to use recovery mode to restore your device. This will erase the device and its passcode.
While your device is connected, force restart it: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Don't let go when you see the Apple logo - keep holding until you see the recovery mode screen.
When you see the option to Restore or Update, choose Restore.
iTunes will download software for your device. If it takes more than 15 minutes, your device will exit recovery mode and you'll need to repeat steps 2 and 3.
Wait for the process to finish. Then you can set up and use your device.
The device went into safe mode because the app that you downloaded was not a safe application. The device does this so that the application cannot cause more problems to your device. Even though the app was downloaded from the app store it was not deemed safe by your device. Here are some tips that will help you to get your device out of safe mode: -Ensure that if you have a case on your device that you take it off being that the case may be holding the volume button causing you to boot into safe mode -Try turning the device off then back on to get out of safe mode -Power off your device, then reboot by holding the power button + volume up key, then in the boot menu select reboot device -This is sometimes caused by the users accidentally tapping safe mode when cutting the device on so simply restart your device Most users have success by simply restarting the device in order to be able to get out of safe mode. Do your best to restart or reboot your device before you have to perform a hard reset to get the app off of your device to no longer go into safe mode In order to hard reset -Power off device -Hold down volume up + power -Release at the boot menu -Use the volume keys to highlight factory reset -Press the power button to select factory reset -After this the device will begin to reset itself -After it resets itself use the volume keys to highlight reboot device -press the power button to have your device rebooted in its factory settings
This can happen after you restart the tablet or after downloading something. The OS get messed up. Turn off the tablet completely, not just put to sleep. Leave it off for several minutes so the RAM will clear completely (normally takes less than a minute). If that does not work, leave the tablet on (It can go to sleep and that's fine.) until the battery drains to zero. Then charge fully and you should be good to go. Worked for me.
It may be your power settings. Your tablet may actually be going to sleep, rather than just turning off. Go to your Search and type "power options". "Power Options" should show up for your to click. Open that up and look for a link that says "Change power settings". The images below of similar, but not exact.
So it's your screen that is coming back on after you press the power button to put it into sleep mode (not all the way off)? Flashing to the new firmware made this issue even worse. I would try a full reset. Back up apps and follow the procedure for resetting the device (press the hole at the top with a paper clip don't use a mechanical pencil...). Other than this I would reflash or flash to a new rom it seems like you have a defect not a software issue. Flashing to the the updated rom should've fixed any problem that was software based not made it worse. It seems like there is a connection loose and it's triggering the device to wake up from sleep mode. If you feel like you have it in you, you can pull the device apart and try securing all connections but this is not recommended.
