Question about Televison & Video
Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is with the power board or the main board and we’ll need to check few things. When you open the unit up; take a look at the power board-the board where the power cords/plugs goes into. You might see some filter capacitors a little bulged up in the top-If this is the case-this is your defective part(you can try to replace them-but some soldering equipment is needed). If not, then probably the main board has gone bad. This is the other board-where all the inputs are going into. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components. Please note that the TV components consists high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

OK Above is your user manual below is your service and repair manual, download and use to repair your set.
Your set is shutting down and starting up, as it's protection circuitry has sensed a fault, of such a magnitude, that it may cause a fire, and explosion or both, you need to remove this unit from the mains.
