    Exactly as previous problem was described, the set turns on but turns off right away. Tried hitting and thumping set, and problem went away for awhile but now not even that works. Could it be a problem with the power supply?

    same deal, only sometimes I can watch mine for a few hours, other times it wont come on at all (but the red indicator light is on, and I hear it power up)

    The problem started with the tuner having problems after warming up for an hour. Channels between 38 and 47 would stop working. Not always the same, sometimes 40 to 47. Now, the channel problem still exists, but shortly after the channel problem starts, the set turns itself off. Let it cool off and it will start again with the power button.

    Same issue. TV is about five years old and only recently have we had this 'shut off' thing start. It started to happen more often... now it only attempts to turn on before shutting right off. I guess I'm going to fork over some money to get somebody out to look at it....

Why does my Philips 40" flat screen tv shut off 15 seconds after I turn it on?

The symptom you describe suggests power supply failure. It is still working but fading fast

Tv automatically powers off by itself within seconds.

This model has a self check: with the set plugged in turn it on--green power light comes on and a few seconds later goes off.

On front of set press and hold BOTH the menu and input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.

It don't show on my television scene

Hook up to tv like normal....Hold down power button for 10-15 seconds or until you hear 2 beeps. If it shuts off, just turn it back on and that will reset your audio and video out from ps3.

TV turns on, then turns itself off about 2 seconds later.

set has a self diagnostic---after set does shut down press and hold MENU AND DEVICE(INPUT) buttons on front of set for 5 seconds----if 2 blinks, a pause and 2 more blinks: this is short protection error code---The set does use 2 Stk394-250 and each is protected by a pico fuse in the power supply---if either fuse is blown the set will shut down(it detects no voltage or missing voltage;) It is not uncommon for a shorted IC to cause this problem; if you locate the STK's look carefully at the resistors around them---if any are discolored or burnt---you have found your problem.
