    Check if the ventilation hole on the rear of the set is blocked, because

    if the inner temperature is too high, the power will shut off.

    • It takes about 30 seconds for the TV to warm up, so normal brightness may not appear immediately.

    • The TV has a fan to keep the inside lamp from overheating. You’ll occasionally hear it working.

    Standby state.

    The picture will automatically appear in about 15 seconds.

    Auto Timer ON/OFF has been set and the set will automatically be

    turned on in about 25 seconds.

    A cooling fan inside the set is not operating normally.

    Lamp cover on the rear of the set is not properly shut.

    Check if the ventilation hole on the rear of the set is blocked, because

    if the inner temperature is too high, the power will shut off.

    Lamp may be defective. Please contact a certified technician.

Vizio M470NV just purchased, while watching TV it turns off with the Vizio light blinking between orange and white. Can not turn back on !! I have to just wait for about a minute then tv turns back on by...

I have the same issue on my Vizio M470NV. I called Vizio and they told me it is a self diagnostic test that is shutting down the TV automatically to protect it. They said they are working on fixing the issue with a firmware update that will be pushed out automatically if you are connected to the internet. No ETA given on when that would happen. I called them on the 3/14/11 and my TV is still shutting down randomly.

It shuts its self off picture is still great everything works great it just makes a loud pop and shuts its self off i can turn it back on after a few minutes sometimes it shuts off again minutes later and...

saw a similar problem w/a Samsung and eventually the Focus Transformer gave out w/a big electric pop sound and all power went out. So it's probably related to a problem with high voltage and Flyback issue. Hope that helps a little.

I have a toshiba tv that turn it self off after few minutes

Is the tv getting too hot and shutting off? Vacuuming will help get the dust out of the fan but inside the actual tv there may still be dust blocking cooling.

KDF-46E2000 turns off then back on by its self

* Most common would be a couple of capacitors in the power supply that are not letting the proper voltage to the lamp.
* The lamp itself is not working properly.

Tv shuts off temp light blinking

There is a fan in the back that should be running. Make sure that tha pathway is clear and that the fan is turning. There are temperature sensors inside that will shutdown the set if it gets too hot. Since this was recently repaired, I would call the repair shop. Most have at least 90 day guarantees. Since you did not have this problem before, they may have missed a connection.
Keep us posted.
