The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

What could be wrong with my Samsung tv un46d6000sfxza

If I had a dime for every one of these type of questions I could retire without my pension. The problem with these sets today is that they no longer fall under the category of "durable goods" which include washers, dryers, water heaters, furnaces, etc. They now come under the electronics category. This means that you shouldn't really expect these devices to last much longer than their warranty period. The days of TV sets lasting 10-15 years are over. Three to five is the new norm. They are designed with obsolescence in mind. The manufacturers do not build any tolerances into the electronics so any small power surge or glitch can cause a cascading failure through the device, taking out multiple board with it. You replace one, it works a few minutes, and then it gets blown out by another one that was bad as well. By the time you get through replacing all the boards, if you are lucky enough to get it working again, you find that for a buck or two more you could have bought a new one that was larger and with more features. This is the manufacturer's plan. If TVs lasted 10 years, then they can't keep selling them at the rate they can build them now. If you want one of these to live a little longer than normal, invest the hundred bucks or so into an UPS to attach to it for power and surge suppression. Dollar store surge protectors won't do much to save these touchy devices.

Warm up time on a Troy-Bilt cultivator

I have a Cub Cadet 4-cycle cultivator and it takes a while to warm up as well. I assume that is the norm for those small 4-cycle engines. But it should not take more than 3-5 minutes to warm up enough to go ahead and start tilling. Unless of course you live in a fairly cool climate. In that case it may take a little longer. I live in Tennessee.

It could be you have an obstruction in water flow. Are you sure your check valve is correctly installed ( not reversed ). If there is no check valve you might want to install one. A quick way to find out is to use an amp meter and monitor the amps. If it goes beyond the F.L.A. on what the pump is designed for and does not come back to norm after a few seconds, than this is what is probably happening. Be safe and always call an electrician.

Tv's volume won't stay at set level,volume goes up stays for a few minutes and then goes down to zero.

This particular model at the time of assembly had jumper cables that were tight fitting. You may have to take this TV to a repair shop. There they will have to loosen the jumper cables by peeling back the insulation that shields the internal wiring. Or have them install longer jumper cables. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.
