Re: tv keeps shutting off

Your tv may have a sleep alarm built into it- go into the menu screen for your tv and see if it has one and if it is set up to turn off after so long

TV keeps shutting off and changing channels

hide all your remote controlls and put some tape over the front cover of the tv where you think the remote control reciever may be , if this fixes it then it means something is amiss with a rogue remote , most likely batterys..could even be sunlight ??

It shuts off on its own will

something is getting hot and a fan could keep it cool and it might help to keep it running.longer . I have tv shop and ones like your that come on are hard to fix unless it fails all the time,I would suspect cold solder joints on board and is fixable but wait fot it to fail all the time before you get it fixed

TV keeps turning off...

We have a Samsung HL-S6187W that's only a year and a half old that was having the same problem.... it would shut off for no reason... sometimes after being on for awhile but then sometimes it would shut off w/in a minute of it being on. Called Samsung support and they said to unplug and "reset" the T.V. and if that didn't happen they'd send a tech out (at a fairly steep service charge) and they would troubleshoot it. Talked to my audio/video guy that installed it all and he said it was probably the lamp that needed to be replaced (obviously for labor and parts charge). We really don't use the T.V. that much (have another flat screen 20' away in the kitchen we watch more often) so I seriously doubted it was the lamp.... plus it couldn't be turning off from over heating because sometimes it would turn off RIGHT after turning the set on.

After reading several suggestions here on Fixya I incorporated a few options to try and fix it myself and I am ecstatic to report that it's been over a month and a half, and we've watched it alot, and it's completely FIXED and doesn't turn off anymore --- and it didn't cost me a cent to fix!!! WOW!! Thanks to all the suggestions... this is a great website!!

Here's what I did:
1. Took off back lamp cover and vacuumed out the entire area (there wasn't ANY dust... but thought it couldn't hurt to clean it out anyway).
2. I disconnected the temperature sensor and cleaned off the contacts and plugged back in firmly.. (I think this is what the real solution was),
3. I then moved the "Auto Shut Off Switch" back and forth a little then made sure it was in the correct position when I replaced the lamp door cover (it's not hard to make sure it's positioned correctly).

Voila!! It's all fixed! This site has great pictures of the correct way to position the Auto Shut Off Switch and of the temp. sensor if you need it.

TV shut off will not stay on.

Sounds as though you have a video problem. It may be the convergence chips. The TV is shutting down do to a default in the circuit ( the set knows there is an error of somekind so it shuts down to protect itself). This is a problem that needs a pro trouble shooter since it could be in about any board. Sorry I couldn't help more

Tvtek is on the right track. The remote will not solve the problem. Sounds like a voltage regulator in HV circuit if it only lasts a few seconds. If it stays on for a couple of minutes, beam limiter cicuit is pushing to overload and shutting unit down. Magnavox set not hard to repair, but a 27" set is not cost effective to repair either.
