Question about Flat Panel Televisions
Our wharfdale (hdcld26 i think is the model) keeps turning itself off,it is not overheating ,it can take 10-20 min to be able to turn on but only after you have killed the power,and then turns straight back off again,in the end we give up,any ideas would be of great help! it has only just started doing this.
I had the same issue with my 42HP95 after about two and a half years. Same symptom, red flashing power light, reset doesn't work and most of all, the last day of the Ryder Cup starts in 3 hours. Any other time (with exception of SuperBowl Sunday). I frantically searched the web for like symptoms and came across someone that posted the fix was to bypass the Seine Module but I had no clue what that was! So what do you do? Tear off the back of the TV and look for something that says Seine on it... Right! After that failed and 500 screws later, I decided to look for a Service Manual online. Nothing like RTFM (Google it!). I paid my $11.99 for a download Service-Manual.Net and found what appeared to be the Seine Module (SEIN). Through a little trial and error, here is what I came up with. The pic below shows the location of the said Module in the red rectangle.
I ultimately found that if I unplugged the connector from the module (in red circle) and put it in the cable management loop (other red circle), the TV would power on and has been working ever since.
According to the post I read (grains of salt) the SEINE Module is only needed if you are using coaxial type (rabbit ear) antenna. I personally don't know but it works for me. Granted, this is my experience and may not work for you but for $12, I am a happy camper. BTW, what a Ryder Cup!!! USA USA USA!!!

If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.
