    My Mitsubishi WD52631 turns off by itself randomly, then you have to hit the restart button on the set before the remote will turn it back on again. Sometimes this happens 20 minutes after viewing, sometimes 3 hours after. Also, when I turn it off at night, the next day when I try to turn it on, it won't turn on until I hit the reset button.



    Once it is on, it operates fine. The manual says the set is designed to shut down if it sees a voltage surge, but I've tried 3 different surge protectors. Maybe it's overheating? It's been fine for a year and a half - does not make sense.

Hi.
Yes it could be a cooling problem, If your tv has any filters remove & clean them ensure fan can turn freely & that nothing can or is snagging it.

The tv turns itself off periodically. Sometimes it goes for hours and other times it happens several times in a 5 minute period.


I suspect a bad connection/dry joint in the power supply.
Look for regulator I/c's on heat sinks. They are favourite to get dry joints and anything that is heavy like transformers and chokes.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
