    Surprise! Surprise! I've had my set for about 2 years and it's doing the same thing. I'm furious to know that it's $500+ to fix. And I WILL NOT ever buy another Phillips product, no matter what it is.

Have a Remington space heater, runs for approx. 10 min. then shuts off, then if unplugged or switch turned off, then it will start again for short period of time

There may be an overheating sensor that is causing shutdown after 10 minutes. After a cooling off period, it is ready to heat for another 10 minutes.

Panasonic pt52lcx15 TV. Recently, after approximately 5 min. The TV turns off. Is this some sort of power supply issue? Or, something else?

Try this.

Unplug the tv. take off the back panel. vacuum or blow out the dust with a can of compressed air (@ $3 at Staples). A lot of the projection tvs had a thermal sensor which would turn the tv off if it got to hot.

That is also a good time to clean the lenses. Be careful not to move them out of alignment. My tv worked like new after I did those things.

Tv shuts down after 20 mins or so need to unplug for a time to re start then will run again for a short time

projector tv works like a projector.
the superhot bulb needs cooling, and if the cooling fails, it shuts down.

so what you have is either the fan is not working, or the cooling system is not working.

have to fix it professionally.

There are pinholes developing in my screen. Can you tell me why and how to repair it?

Try connecting any other device to the TV to confirm that the issue is with the TV. Then, you can try resetting the TV to the factory settings. If the issue persists, you may try power resetting.
To reset the TV, please disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute). Then, reconnect the power cord and power on the TV.
If the issue persists, you can get it serviced from the nearest authorized service center.

I have a KDL46VL150 that has started cutting off after viewing for a while. The standby lights blink a sequence of 6 times. Usually if i unplug or cycle power to off and wait a bit it will return to normal...

It indicates that there is an internal malfunction within the TV. You can try Power reset.
To Reset the TV, please disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute). Then, reconnect the power cord and power on the TV.
You can also try connecting the TV directly to the wall outlet.
If the issue persists, I suggest that you get the TV serviced to fix the issue.

Red power lights blinks and tv will cut off. sometimes after you unplug it it will come on after about 10 min. now it will not come on unless you unplug it and then it will work about 5 min and cut off...

depending on the age of your tv, this appears to be a common issue. Blame it on the ballast board. your ballast might not be able to provide the lamp w/ enough voltage to keep the image on for longer period of times. or it could simply be that you need a new tv lamp.

Pioneer plasma pdp4214hd shuts off after being on for about 20 min.

Are you able to turn the TV back on immediately or do you have to wait? If the TV is consistently shutting off around 20 minutes, this may indicate an overheating issue. It is possible that you need to clean the TV out of dust or it may mean your cooling fan is dead or not revving up when the temperature rises. If you are not able to turn the TV back on right after it shuts off, overheating is likely the issue, as you would be forced to wait until it cools down. If you are able to turn it back on, for how long? Does it continue to shut off after another 20 minutes? It is possible that the thermal sensor on the mainboard is defective, or that the software that controls the sensor maybe corrupt. Service or a firmware update may resolve this. You would have to contact the manufacturer.
