TV Shuts off by itself

Hi we have a Phillips projection tv model60p8342. We can watch it for about a day with no problems then it will shut itself off. It will turn back on but shut off again. We let it sit for about a week then we can watch it again. What part does it need and where can we order one? Thank you

    I have a 60 in Phillips rear projection tv that will work for a few days and then will turn its self off. The tv turns back on but then shuts off again. I have tried unplugging the tv to reset it. I have let it sit for a couple months without using it and would like to figure out how to get it working again.

    will stay on for aproximately 2 hours then shuts off.

    I have no clue, maybe a heat, or programing problem.

    When I push the power/standy button on the tv or the power button on the remote the TV appears to be turning on, by this I mean the power/stanby button turns red but then a few seconds later it flashes 6 times then turns off. What gives? I have unplugged it from the wall outlet (like when rebooting a computer) waited anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours but the problem persits. The date code on the back is 6-13-01.

    Mine does the same thing though and will sometimes power on but other times it wont, and the picture and audio are perfect when it does power on, but it normally blinks the power light once then cuts itself off after a few minutes of working perfectly. 


    I'd really like to know how to fix this too!

Others have suggested the keypad needs replacement when this happens and say that it fixes the problem. But sears cant get it any longer and it's kind of hard to track down. Rebuilding it may be a better solution.

If you are lucky, it's only a blown fuse. Some tv's this large have more than one fuse, so look real hard and find all fuses. If fuses are good, then about 95% of the time, when you have no picture/no sound, the problem is a bad H.O.T. This is a large transistor with three pins soldered into the main board and is very easy to find because it is connected to a metal "heat sink". Look for a large red or black wire coming from the pic tube down to the main circuit board (sometimes it's blue, but it's the only wire coming from the GLASS part of the tube to the board. This wire goes to about the largest component on the board called the "flyback transformer". It is usually black and is about 3 or 4 inches tall, 2 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. The h.o.t. will usually be located in the area of the "flyback". The h.o.t. will be screwed with one screw or clamped onto a large piece of metal (usually silver). This piece of metal is usually about 2 inces square and is about 1/8 of an inch thick and is mounted perpendicular to the main board. Imagine a slice of bread standing on one side rather than lying flat and this is what the heat sink looks like. Sometimes you will see several heat sinks with transistors screwed into them, but the one you are looking for will always be the largest transistor with three pins. Don't forget to unplug the tv before you begin and stay away from the large wire coming out of the tube going to the "flyback". Do NOT unplug this wire from the tube. It can shock you very badly EVEN WITH THE TV OFF FOR SEVERAL DAYS. Just be careful and go ahead and give this a try. You can do it, and this is probably going to fix your set. If not, then replace the flyback transformer. The H.O.T. is about $10 or $15 and the flyback can be from $30 to $80. It is possible that none of this will fix your set, but you have about a 95% chance that it will and with such a big and nice and relatively new set, I would give it a shot. Keever

Tv will not stay on


Hi,
If tv shuts off and turns back On itself than lamp is weak and need to be replaced.
If tv shuts off but does not turns On itself than you will see red light blinking on tv front, let me know how many times it blinks, there would be pause of 3 seconds in blinks so count pause to pause and post here to provide you helpful info about problem.
Thanks.

Turns off by itself after i've turned it on


I have this same TV and had a similar problem. This may or may not be the same case with yours. The button panel on the front of your TV may be having connection problems. Mine would come on and off by itself. I took the front panel off and cleaned the connection on the button board with a q-tip and a little dab of alcohol. This cleared up the problem of it turning itself on and off.

Error Code 5 flashes when unit shuts down


Good Day;
It sounds like the TV may have a shorted CRT, picture tube, but let's trouble shoot:
1. Unplug TV from wall.
2. Remove speaker grill, two on bottom, the screws are covered with plastic caps, right and left side on bottom next to floor.
3. Remove inner panel.
4. The blue tube is the one the right side, remove socket, with phillips driver, make sure it's not touching anything.
5. Plug and turn TV back on, if picture appears with no blue it's the tube.
6. If still shuts down, bad blue CRT driver IC.
CAUTION: Call a factory authorized service dealer to give you an estimate, if this sounds too hard.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
