TV intermittently turns off, then on, showing initial menu

TV is @ 15 years old. Has started turning off and then back on intermittently. Shows initial menu when it turns back on. Had a repairman in who had it for more than a week and now it does it less frequently, but still is turning off/on. More irritating than anything else, but I'm worried there may be a hazard in continuing to use the TV

Sony KDL-40XBR2 - powers on, backlight is on, no pic, turn it off and back on, same for 10 to 15 seconds, then TV does power off/back on by itself...most of the time picture then shows up.

Depending on your enegy, on home, if is variable or steady 110V
you can check these on your TV, but safety first, or seek a qualify tech:
1) bad capacitor for power module **
2) bad inverter board or capacitors burn.

good luck!

Black rectangular box shows on screen

This is simple: set in the closed caption menu (some cable boxes also have it) called TEXT. Look in the menu and turn it off first in the set and also in the box used if used for signal.

Odd feature and never really took off--designed so some channels like PBS etc could broadcast text.

TV Flashing from Channel to Channel Non-Stop. Problem with the RCA F32689 32" TV My TV started jumping from channel to channel non-stop. There's no picture or sound - only channel numbers changing...

If still under guarantee take it back.
If not this sounds like a workshop job. If more than five years old (the TV, not you!) and you can afford it, junk this set and get a new one.

My tv no longer shows the color red. No idea what

I have sound but my tv screen is black. Sometimes when I turn on the tv I get a picture but after 15 minutes or so the screen goes black again.
It's a 4 year old LCD.

Range is 15 years old, used with propane. Now

Yes. For the oven, it is usually 3 full revolutions CCW. (easiest to count 12 one quarter turns with an open end wrench) Make sure to go through and reverse all LP conversion steps, including the regulator adjustment.

Keeps turning off

This unit has a common problem with fans. If one of the cooling fans is intermittent the unit will turn off when the fan fails. A qualified tech with a service remote can get into the service menu and on this unit the is a menu line that shows pwr down failures.
