    I have the exact same problem with my symphonic 20'' TV, any idea what that could be?

    TV shuts off after about 2 minutes then every 10 or 15 seconds after that as if something is getting over heated inside.

Toshiba 46g310u turns off and on by itself

The problem is a voltage dip. I can reproduce this on the same model TV by turning on the A/C or the oven and dryer at the same time. As soon as I hear the thermostat click on the TV shuts off. Just order a voltage regulator today, will see if that works.

JVC LT-32P679 Blinking Power Light, Automatic Shutoff

1. Hold [menu] and [vol-] button on the side of the TV
2. while holding these, press the [power] button on the side of TV (NOT remote)
3. blue light comes ON and stays ON
4. wait 10 seconds then let go of [menu] and [vol-]
5. wait another 30 seconds and some type of picture should appear

I think this is right. I got it from the JVC call centers guys so sorry if I missed or messed up a step.

Model # WF20L6 symphonic

This particular model has a history of this problem.

This sounds like a safety feature built into the television. It may be trying to protect itself from an unsafe electrical source. The more expensive the equipment, the more sophisticated the power supply that converts the power from your outlet into your television. There could have been a lightning strike that has disabled the tv. Or it could be a faulty outlet.
Before called for a technician, I recommend plugging the television into a different outlet. use a good quality extension cord if necessary. You may find that your outlet is not polarized correctly.

Symphonic WF20L6 20" tv powers down about 30 seconds after turning it on. I found on this site someone said it was the "Power supply faulting for internal problem". My question is how do I...

I think the transformers in these units are the problem not the "power board" I have a symphonic that had a bad transformer in it two legs were not putting out any voltage so I replaced the whole main board for about 50 usd. I may put a small fan inside to move some air around that transformer so that it stays cool
