Turn tv on watch it for 20 mins. screen shuts off but green power light is still on. turn it off manualy wait a few mins. turn back on watch for anouther 20 mins or so then screen shuts off again

The reasion your set is shutting off is because the power supply is dieding, and you need to replace the electrolytic caps on the power supply, or purchase a new one, go to sand check to see if they have your power supply.

Main board green light blinking at 5 flashing intervals

researched your problem a little, it sounds like a burnt out board. It doesn't look too good for parts either. google your symptoms and you will see a few hits on your exact issue

We have a Philips 4 BDS4231R/00 and it does not start. We can here the relay sound and if we turn it on and off say 7 - 10 times it works fine. Could anybody tell me how this can be fixed. Please

Hey John, I am experiencing a very similar problem. If I unplug the TV when it is on (green light) and plug it back in. It begins green, and clicks to red. I immediately turn the TV back on with the remote. Most of the time it seems to struggle for several seconds, sometimes with a little scratchy audio popping in and out. It will then go from green to red on the TV and if I try to turn it back on it will go green for a few seconds and back to red but without any click coming from the TV. No matter how many times I try after that, no TV. If, on the other hand, I unplug while green, plug it back in and with the remote turn it back on after it has come up green and then clicked to red, it will come on. It might take thee or five times but at least it comes on... If you hear of a real solution, please let me know ( in the meantime, best of luck.

When I turn on the unit I get a green light, but after about 5 seconds it switches to red blinking and I do not get a screen

What is the model of TV?

The Red blinking light is a Protection Error Code. Your Tv needs repair. Most common is the power or Main Unit / Logic Board.

Post your model and how many times the light blinks. Also try unplugging for about 20 min and see if it will turn on.

Some models you get lucky and its a common problum which makes for an easier diagnosis.

for general pricing on LCD and Plasma TV parts.

I was watching my vizio tv for 5 mins and it turned off. will not turn on and no lights even come on.

Might be the switchmode power supply board, mine did something similar and when I disasselbled it I noticed five capacitors were bulging and when I replaced them, the TV turned on and everything was fine again.

These TVs tend to overheat I hear, I am going to install two small 12v brushless DC fans inside so this never happens again.

Brand new LG plasma stuck on test screens

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope it may help you;

TV makes "expanding and contracting" sound and switches "off" automatically

Take it back to the store with the receipt and make a fuss so they give you a new one in a box. Do not let them have it repaired, it may never be right.
