Tv shuts off and won't turn on

We have a 30" philips hdtv model 3pw8420/37. the first time we had the problem with the tv the tv just shut off by itself and a white horizontal line appeared on the tv. So we sent it to a tv repair shop. they keeped our tv for months. they had repaired the parts and soldered connections but did not tell us what exactly went wrong with our tv. got it back and the tv went out again the same as the first time. sent it back for the second time and this time they said they had replaced the pix tube. It lasted for about 16 hours woke up the next morning to watch tv and it came on and once again the same problem it just shut down. please help do we get rid of the tv or do we send it somewhere else

Philips tv with sound going in and out

Try bypassing the set's speaker by running an external audio amp. I use my bookcase stereo for audio direct from the satellite receiver and turn the volume off on the TV. Sounds better this way! Could be the audio amp in the TV is going bad or the speaker may be bad and the TV's audio amp goes through a shut down cycle.

Philips/Magnavox TV, model MS3250C321 shuts off randomly.

TV shutting off automatically means its a problem with the Lamp. Contact Pioneer or any local tech shop or Best buy and get the same replaced.
Turning off after specific time : Go to the timer option and disable the Automatically Switch off option. This will resolve the issue. Please let me know if it worked. If you need the user manual or instruction manula please click on the link below Hope this will be of help to you.

Tv just shut off, now now power will not turn on at tv or remote

I have the same problem with my Panasonic Tau 32" HDTV (tube). It's well out of warranty, so I might "explore" and see if I can find a burned fuse or other component.
