TV Turns off after several minutes ! needs to be off for several minutes before it can be turned back on !


Sounds like the Thermal safety cutoff switch is either faulty or it is working correctly and the printed circuit board is overheating. given that the TV is 12 years old it may be simply a build up of dust. If you are not confident in removing the units covers and giving it a clean yourself (unplug it from the wall socket first) then take it to a service technician. having said that, the cost of having it cleaned is probably more than the TV is worth given its age.

Samsung TV turns itself off every 10/15 minutes


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

TV Turns off and on


How long since the last time the bulb was replaced? It sounds like the bulb is overheating and triggering a safety shutdown.

It's probably in need of nothing more than a good cleaning (open it up, clean off the boards with a can of air) and *may* be time to replace the bulb.
