My Norcent TV Shuts off on it's own.

My t.v. (R46TV2704S) will shut it's self off after 2-3 hours of use. When the t.v. is about to turn off you see the screen start to become glitchy. The only way i can get the t.v. to work again is to unplug it from the wall for 10-20 minutres and plug it back in. The t.v. will have this porblem if i leave it plugged in regardless of being on or off. For example if i go to bed in the night and turn off my t.v. when i get up in the morning have to unplug it for 20 min before i can watch it again.

Any help would be AWESOME!

    We have a 42 " LG Flat Panel, has worked just fine from January to October.
    It started shutting itself off after a few hours of use, and we also have to uplug ours for awhile to get it to work again. It seems the longer we leave it unplugged, the longer use we get out of it.

    Last week, we took it to a repair shop. They ran it non stop, 24/7 for the entire week, and it never shut itself off.

    They suggested that it could be the fact that we have the tv, the satellite, and the surround sound all plugged into the same strip in the same outlet.

    We now have all three appliances plugged into seperate outlets, and in seperate circuits, but the tv continues to shut itself off again here at home.

SOURCE: Powers off by itself.

Has anyone gotten a resolution for this the only answer I saw was the SSB Board. Is there a cheap place to get parts. Philips model 50P8341 goes off by itself also wont come back on if you unplug it for a while it will come back on.

SOURCE: Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma... Problem

Describe the past - How did it fail? One day or acting up for a while? Could be a weak power supply - a bad capacitor on a power supply too. Look for popped up capacitor top inside.

SOURCE: TV turns off by itself & won't turn back on til unplugged, then plugged back in

Well, first your model number is the 42 inch, but I digress...

I had a similar problem with a Viewsonic 27 inch, with the blinking power light on a failed power-up. It turned out that replacing the power transformer was the ticket. However, as I have the 50 inch Panasonic plasma, I know that the transformer is built into the set itself. I'd still suggest that this is what needs replacing though, as this is different from a set being on but having no picture.

Actually its a panel fault. You will need new inverter board for the panel. (That is if you get the power and sound, but no picture)

My Norcent LCD TV LT2722 Turns on, but whenever you press a button on the remote or TV, it shuts off.

Green "ON" lights comes on (after some jiggling of the on/off button). Nothing else. Black screen, no sound. Where should I go next?

Tv shuts off and on by itself


I only hope you have connected the tv with a stabilizer or is it inbuilt? This might be because of Voltage fluctutations. Also, check the connectivity of the internal power card.

Your TV is overheating.. easiest remedy is to point a fan at the back of the TV or... clean the inside of the TV, Im sure its full of dust and stuff... this prevents air circulation inside the TV thus creating more heat...

Shuts down it self

Sounds like you have a heat issue. Is the fans clear, or are they clogged with dust, hair, etc? Check the cpu heatsink as well for dust, etc. It sounds like the cpu thermostat is shutting the system down. Let me know
