    i have a 27" tv that does the same thing. sometimes I watch for an hour no prob, after 2 hours it switches off and I have to walk away for 10-15 min. then I'll turn back on and it'll shut back off after only 15 min. someone with little experience suggested it was overheating and I should take it apart and blow the dust out of it. but I'm doubtful. I will pursue action given by someone knowledgable, thanks.

Why is my 50 inch sanyo plasma power up with no picture then shutting down after a few seconds

A component in the TV is failing and is not receiving correct voltage, which is causing the TV to enter " protection mode" and shut off. Could be any part of the TV but I would start with the power supply and go from there.

For more info post the model number of your TV

Here is some basic info on testing the power supply.

Can't Turn off Closed Captioning on Sanyo 36 in TV AVM-3658

Hi Hfrohman, This may sound crazy, but, press and hold the power button on the TV while unplugging it, continue to hold power button for 60 seconds or more. Release it and plug TV back in. Sometimes that will clear the settings.

I hope that works for you.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.
