9 out of 10 times this would be due to a problem in the power supply.

1 in 20 it will be the main board and 1 in 20 it would be something else.

If it's the main board you can usually see it wth your bare eyes in the form of bulging electrolytic capacitors.

If it's on the main board or elsewhere you can't usually see it at all.

If it is turning off by itself then your power supply might be going out. If it does not bother you too much right now I would wait until it gets worst. Depending on how much you use it it may not get worst in months.

TV turns itself off after about 5 minutes (green light remains on). I can turn off the TV and turn it back on immediately, however, the TV turns itself back off after a few minutes. It started turning off...

Check and make sure your fans are working and there is sufficiant cooling to the back of the set. Sounds like it is overheating and going into protection mode.

There's no quick fix on your problem because you hava a leaky electrolytic on the supply of the microcontroller.Leaky capacitor affect the regulation of b+ and sometimes works within warms-up but the sympton will get worst. I've rather suggest you to send it to repair shop to isolate the problem because the microcontroller itself is one of the major suspect on this case.

Thanks for using fixya.

I have a error message e20 how can this be fixed

Turn off your water connections remove the hoses at the washer connection and check for debris on the inlet screens of the water valve on the back of the unit. (You will must remove the hoses.) Use a small blade or scribe on the OUTSIDE edge of the screens to remove them. The wash them under running water rubbing gently with your fingers.
Reinstall the screens making sure they are seated and reconnect the hoses hot to hot cold to cold. water on..

If the screens are clean and you still have the problem it can be caused by low water pressure.

Worst case the water valve itself may have failed. Normally only one side of the valve will fail at a time either hot or cold.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

LG Plasma TV automatic turn off right after turn on

You have some dried out capacitors on the power supply. Samsung has a major issue with this right now and I made a tutorial for that repair in my Tips & Tricks. Your capacitors will not be the same, but identifying them and replacing them will be. Best advise I can give you: Stop using the TV and unplug it until you get it fixed. When these caps go bad, they draw down the voltage they are filtering. I've seen some TVs that had secondary damage because of this. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

Vizio VW26L - Cable throws Breaker

Careful!!! Sounds like a serious electrical problem somewhere. Cable itself is by law bonded to earth ground. Might be the TV but most likely it's your electrical outlet has an open neutral circuit which means the current has no way to return back to the outlet and so it has to find another route. In this case its the cable system. Worst case scenario, its through your body. You probably have a 10 amp or 15 amp circuit breaker and if that is tripping you are getting a serious amount of current flow.Call an electrican or somebody who knows about this. Its a very serious situation which can lead to disaster of the worst kind. Sorry for doom and gloom but it wouldn't be the first time bad things happen for this very reason.

Tv wont stay off

Yes - a new more expensive TV that is not a throw-away model.
The problem is probably in the micro and will continue this intermittently - sometimes hot/cold can have an effect on when it has the problem. It will get worse and it will eventually need to be repaired...
Sorry for the bad news.

Tv turn itself off after a couple of hours

Your problem is bad solder connections on the sweep or power supply board. In some rare cases I have seen the regulator IC with ring cracks arounfd the leads and causing the set to shut off all by itself. If you know how to solder and work on solid state printed circuit boards, you should not have too much problems finding bad connections or monitoring the B+ voltage to see if thats what is cutting off the set. If you have no circuit experience with TV's play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair, as it should not cost too much to find this problem, if it is just bad or cold solder connections. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
