TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss.
On CRT types, figure on replacing the flyback transformer.
Most TV power supplies use a large capacitor on the power input circuit that instantlly charges when plugged in and thus draws a noticable spark. This is normal.
Hope ya fix it!

When I turn my TV on, it comes on and says 'no signal' then after about 5 seconds, automatically switches its self off... any idea why?


Most sets will shut down very fast if no signal at all.

If you can before it shuts off try to change input to one of the rear audio video inputs that has something connected to it and turned on.

Failing there and if using a box of some type for signal--unplug it and the set both for a while---plug back both and let each try to boot up.

A total loss of signal or a glitch with the set or a box can confuse the TV set's Microprocessor.

Turns on and immediately shuts off


check for sleep mode and whether the timer for sleep mode is on or not, if sleep mode is on lets say 30 min or 5 min , ur TV will turn off automatically after that much time

My Mitsubishi turns off automatically...


I had the same problem with an RCA, check your sleep mode settings on it, it may have defaulted to 1 min, so it cuts off when it cuts on

TV turns off


It sounds like you might either have a bad power cord or you might have an over heating issue. Some times the TV will automatically shut off if it senses a fan issue or it starts to overheat. What technology is your set? DLP, LCOS, DILA...? If its under warranty I'd suggest to get someone out asap to take a look at it.

TV makes a repeated cricket sound and won't turn on.


It means that the TV set has a short in it somewhere. The sound you hear is the power supply trying to start up and shutting down. Most likely the Horizontal output transistor shorted because of a bd high voltge flyback transformer went bad. Common problem for these types of sets. Good Luck
