Hold a flash light to the screen after it goes off and see if you can see a faint picture. Sounds like your backlight might be cutting off. Repair can be expensive but some of the newer units don't require the entire LCD to be replaced.

Phillips has had a problem with their video boards lately (last 2 years) on units over 42" , i have had a 52" with same problem and repaired it. the board needs replacing in all cases ive seen. the repair is about 400.00 ( 185.00 parts and rest is labor) phillips will replace it but be cautious the ship out refirbs from Atlanta which are usually in terrible shape from my experiences. They stopped using the refirm company but there are still dozens of bad replacement units out in their warehouse. You can demand a refund too (they write a check and want you to ship the unit back or its serial label) but they wont refund sales taxes.
