53 in HDTV with DVD player flat screen

The TV just shuts off and will turn back on on its own. I checked the sleep timer and it is off. It does not do this everytime but it will do it several times in a row sometimes 10 seconds later and then sometimes 10 minutes, There is no time frame when it clicks off for thr first time either.

we have Direct TV with DVR and the show keeps running while the TVshuts off.

Tv shuts off, when turned back on, the green light keeps blinking and tv wont come back on. if you leave off for a few min. the tv will come back on. then the tv will shut off again after a few min.

One of two things...first hold power button while you hold the up button on your remote, this will reset your tv to manufacturer's could have sleep timer on.....if this does not work, you have to replace the lamp, my tv did the same thing and it happened to be the lamp. Hope this helps, good luck

Most likely you have turned on the sleep function. 2nd button from the left on the top of the remote hand unit. Keep pressing until "sleep off" appears on-screen.


Timer in user's menu is activated to turn off TV a specific time. Go to timer menu and adjust timer, then push cancel on the remote, this should reset timer to zero. Same with current time, adjust and select cancel, this should reset current time.

If you do not have the original remote, you are in trouble. Service tech will have remote.

SONY HDTV-LCD MODEL - KDF-42WE655 turns itself off. Lamp light indicator flashes red. Should I attempt to reset ? It is approx. 4 years old

I'd wager that somewhere in the menu settings, there is a "Sleep Timer". Check the menu for the sleep timer, which turns off the TV after a set length of time. Also, check your remote, there might be a "Sleep" button that would do the same thing, press it multiple times until it reads "Sleep: Off" or something similar.

Digital input not working and greyed out on the menu.

Most JVC TV's with HDMI and Digital Input have an optical sensor inside the case to sense if someone is trying to bypass the hardware encryption. My JVC was exposed to sunlight prolonged sunlight and triggered this optical sensor which disabled my HDMI ports. This may be the same situation for you.


Turn the TV on, and enter the Service Menu. Select 2 for Self Check. Then turn the TV off, and after the fan turns off, unplug the power cord. Reconnect the power cord, turn the TV on, and the HDMI port is re-enabled.

Here's how to get to Service Menu:

Before entering the SERVICE MENU, confirm that the setting
of TV/CATV SW of the REMOTE CONTROL UNIT is at the
"TV" side and the setting of VCR/DVD SW of the REMOTE
CONTROL UNIT is at the "VCR" side. If the switches have not
been properly set, you cannot enter the SERVICE MENU.
1) Press [SLEEP TIMER] key and while the indication of
SLEEP TIMER 0 MIN is being displayed, press
[DISPLAY] key and [VIDEO STATUS] key (Fig.2)
2) The SERVICE MENU screen of Fig.1 is displayed.
3) Verify what to set in the SERVICE MENU, and set
whatever is necessary (Fig.1).
Refer to the SERVICE ADJUSTMENT for setting.
4) Press the [BACK] key to return the SERVICE MENU.

Make sure your filter screens are kept clear.
Protect Components from Overheating
• Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.
• Don’t stack components.
• If you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow around
other components.
Hope this helps!. Otherwise in your owners manual, under troubleshooting it states:
TV turns off while playing
• Sleep Timer, Wake-up Timer, or Watch feature may have been activated. Go to page 45 or 69 for instructions.
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this
happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• The sleep timer may be set.
• Unplug. Wait five minutes. Plug in again.
Hope this help you out.

Wharfedale lcd 1710af. switch TV on, a time of 4.59 comes up on the screen, it then counts down and switches off. The sleep timer is switched off, any ideas?

Can you set the sleep timer, or does it just stay at the 4:59? Try setting the sleep timer on, if possible, to something different than the 4:59 and let it shut off. Then turn it back on and see if you adjust the sleep setting from ON to OFF. If this doesn't work, try unplugging the TV for 24 hours and plugging it back in. This should reset the TV.(fingers crossed!) I am not familiar with this brand of TV, but if this fails to work, you can contact the manufacturer and speak with a tech. to see what your options are. Hope this helps...
