Sounds like a short in the power wire, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to warm up then shorts out and when it cools down you can watch for 10 to 15 more minutes before it shuts off again, you need to take it in and have the powercord replaced because this is very hard to do from home and one mistake can make the whole tv not work.

Hi there
Try resetting the TV by unplugging everything, and wait 3 minutes, then plug in the power lead only, and turn it on.

TV Turns Off Automatically While Watching


Stop trying to turn on the set. You are causing more damage. The hissing sound you are hearing is either a High Voltage Transformer on the SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply) indicating a short somewhere in the set or some capicitors that have shorted out. Also there can be a CRT that is leaking cooling fluid onto the Main bd or the Power/Deflection bd or both bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

When the screen goes blank, hit any remote function that will show up on the screen-like volume bar. If the display is missing as well, then you have a tv problem. If the volume display is there when the tv picture is not, you may require a software upgrade.
