    For the past decade or so, televisions were designed with a "kill circuit" that'll shut down the tv when particular parts in the set lose value.

    This particular Philips tv is a nightmare to all tv techs' out there...mainly because it is designed with 5 kill circuits....

My tv keeps shutting off after 15 minutes or so,I hace a 61 inch rca.when running the picture and sound are perfect

You are not the only one I can tell you that. I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

I have a Phillips LCD tv model #42PF7421D/37. and

I know on the plasma TV's it was a matter of updating or downloading and re-installing the firmware/software for the TV to fix the issue. Go to the following page and if the model you have is indeed a 42PF7421D/37 download the software on the page. Make sure you follow the installation instructions to update the software otherwise the set will become a 150 lb paper weight.

Hi, we have a phillips tv. it is about 6 orso years old. within the last 6 months, it has starting going off. you turn it on and it may play 5 or 10 or even 30 or more minutes but it keeps going off. the...

I wouldnt use that service man. If your set is shutting down its most likely do to the shutdown circuitry being triggerd by a defective component. I would recomend contacting someone skilled with phillips model televisions, most sets that play and then shutdown usually have a problem with a single component that is triggering shutdown, a skilled repair man will test the various voltages to determine the cause of the shutdown.
