Re: over heating

Fan filter is probably plugged with dust, fan blades are also probably covered, unit will have to be taken apart and cleaned, lamp is overheating, probably a good idea to replace that lamp or at least order a new one and keep it for when it does finally die out, good luck with it, hope this helps

Older-model Toshiba TV shuts off by itself

There is a large sand filled resistor on the main board close to where the power cord attaches that cracks. This will stop power until it cools enough to make the connection then heats up rapidly to open it again. It may be worth the trouble if you're handy with a soldering gun and can get the back off the TV. If not then I'd consider getting a flat screen.

47pfl5704d/f7 shuts off

possibly a dry soldered joint, when the television gets warm the contact is broken as the soldered joint has become loose. it is an easy cure if you can discover the fault, basically resoldering the joint. but can be difficault to find. i have normally done this using a freeze spray(must be designed for electrical applications). spray the circuit board insmall areas. when the relevent part is rapidly cooled the contact will again be mmade and the television will work until the joint heats up again once it goes again spray again to check. switch off and re-solder

My Sharp LC-42SB45U takes 15 min to an hour to turn on. Also, sometimes picture blacks out for 10-15 seconds. Any suggestions? Pat Courson

Have same problem. Not the proper fix though I found that taking the back off and heating it up with a heat gun for 30 seconds to 1 minute and tv works fine till you shut it off over night.Maybe someone can offer a solution with that in mind. Pretty strange

2007 Panasonic 50in Plasma shuts off after being on 30 min sleep timer off, is the problem the cooling fans out/ over heating

Yes, cooling fan could be a problem. Just see whether it goes off during before shut off. If yes, the TV might need service. To know whether the fan goes off first or the TV, stick one side of any thin vibrating membrane such as a silver paper (like the one you see in cigarette packets) on the fan outlet, without blocking it, so that you can see whether it stops before the TV shuts down. Alternatively you can hand an inflated balloon which keeps flying off from the area of the fan and shall stop when the fan stops. I suggest this, in order to save your time looking at the rear all the time until the TV stops. Even then, one is likely to overlook whether the fan stops or TV stops first.

Ce32ld33 tv sanyo turns on stays on for couple hours then turns off and stays off until an hour or 2 then switches on .i try to switch it on after about 20 mins but the little blue standby light goes...

There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance. The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on, if there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, and use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points. Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up; if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault. It can also be related to WEAK ELECTROLYTIC capacitors as the value can reduce in time.

My Toshiba powers off every few mins and will not turn back on until i unplug the tv and plug it back in. Will only stay on for another few mins. The long its unplugged the longer it will stay on up to ten...

It sounds like you have a bad capacitor. When one is faulty, they will demonstrate this type of behavior. The issue is finding out which one. If you are not a skilled technician, this is a difficult task. I would recommend that you take it to a TV repair shop, and let them repair it, if you are unable to. The good thing is that the cost of a repair is significantly less expensive than a new TV.

Once you turn the vizio 50 plazma vphdtv10a off it wont turn back on after it cools of if you keep turning on and off for 30 min it will come on and stay on until you shut it off and let it cool off

I have a 32inch vizio that kept going off. the company said remove it completly from all power,wait 30 seconds,push the on button for 15 seconds.plug back in and it should work.
Mine worked at first then it quit completly and the company did not return any of my e-mails. probably cause it is past the warrenty(they only warrent for 12 months)A friend of mine had the same problem, neither one of us will ever buy a vizio again and I tell everyone I know about this problem.

Olevia 332h comes on for a few minutes then turns off

I have the same problem with my Olevia 332h. The TV shuts off after 10 seconds. I decided to wedge a desk fan in between the wall and the back of the TV. It worked! The TV doesnt shut off anymore. This problem is obviously heat related. I hope this information helps you.

Magnavox lcd tv 15mf050v/17

I put heat-sinks on U14 and the regulator above it and the TV has been running fine all day. Always shut off after 14-30 minutes before. Heatsinks were just 1/2" x 1" metal strips with silicon thermal compound that I taped up to hold in place to temporarily test, as it is obviously a heat related problem.

If you try it and it works for you, post it here.
