Question about Philips Televison & Video
Called Philips, they said if I unplugged it for several minutes and plugged it back in and it still turned off and on by itself then it had to be a hardware problem. The remote quit working shortly before the problem started also. Changing batteries didn't help.
I think some of the capacitors at Tv power supply are faulty. By doing what Philips suggested, you actualy try to discharge capacitors. This trick could work, if capacitors would be fine. Your tv needs to be checked by service.

Check or have a repair tech check connectors AP1 and AP2. Vibration rattles the power supply board (a crappy design, as the board is almost "floating") and causes the wires in the connectors to break, and may make intermittent contact. Heat may also cause intemittent contact. A very common flaw.

How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).
1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board
You can buy the parts online and fix if yourself!!

There may be some components failing in the power supply or one of the circuit boards that are causing too high a current pull.
I realize that this answer is very vague. Without doing proper diagnostics, it is impossible to guess at something like this.
Out of warranty repairs on these sets can be very expensive. I would suggest that if the set is going to be expensive to service, it would be best to replace it with a known brand name that offers an extended warranty with local service. You will pay more, but you will have dependability and better quality.
