T.V. turns itself off

My television turns itself off and won't turn back on without resetting by unplugging and plugging back into an electrical outlet. The last time I tried to reset the television it Autolocked itself out of every channel. How can I fix this problem. The television is only about 4 & 1\2 years old. Ticker at bottom of screen gets cut-off.

    Same problem - I even paid $120 to have it fixed; and they replaced something. Worked for a while; now it cuts itself off and on and for awhile would reset; but now it doesn't last. Am getting another tv - too expensive to keep this one.

What make/model is the TV?

If it's in a cabinet or other enclosure, try taking it out - it may be overheating.

When I turn on my Sony TV, ti stays on about 30 seconds then shuts off, What do you think is wrong?


Do a Power Reset.
1. Turn off TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.)
5. Turn on the TV.
If issue persists after doing the steps, reset the TV to factory default settings.
1. Turn on the TV.
2. Using the supplied remote, press and hold the UP arrow button.
3. While holding the UP arrow button press the POWER button on the TV itself.
4. When the TV goes off, release the POWER and UP arrow button.
5. The TV will turn on by itself and the initial setup screen will be displayed. Just follow the on-screen prompts to finish the setup.

Please my tv with on the standby mode when i try to put it back it couldn't the indicator now goes on and off with picture show please help


The standby light on a Sony television indicates when the television is turned on and operating, or turned off and in "standby" mode. However, this light also serves a secondary function: indicating when there is a problem with the television by flashing. When the standby light begins to flash, there are two reset options that can be performed to resolve whatever issue it's indicating -- a power reset and a factory reset

POWER RESET
1. Turn off your TV
  • 2. Unplug the television from the electrical outlet. If you're using a surge protector or power strip, disconnect the television from the strip itself. Only by disconnecting the power cord from the outlet can you ensure no power reaches the TV during the power cycle.
  • 3. Leave the television without power for at least 60 seconds. This gives the television enough time for all components to power down during the power cycle
  • 4. Plug the television back into the electrical outlet. If you're using a surge protector or power strip, plug the television directly into the wall outlet instead. The surge protector may otherwise interfere with the power-up cycle, especially if it is old or damaged.
  • 5. Turn on the television. If the blinking standby light continues, you'll need to move on to the factory reset process.

  • FACTORY RESET
  • 1. Turn on the television.
  • 2. Press and hold either the "Reset" or up arrow button on the remote control.
  • 3. Press and release the "Power" button on the front of the television, while keeping the "Reset" or up arrow button on the remote depressed.
    4. Release the "Reset" or up arrow button.
    5. Allow the television to reset after the "Reset" message appears on the screen.
    6. Make no adjustments to the television for at least one minute after the reset has completed. This is to allow the television time to finish auto-configuration and initial set up.
    7.Turn off the television and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
    8. Wait ten seconds, then plug the television back into the electrical outlet and turn on the TV.
    9. Follow all on-screen instructions to complete setup. These are the instructions displayed the first time you set up the television, for configuring channels, menu language, time, display properties and more.

    TURNS OFF ALL THE TIME


    Hi


    Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to reset the Projection TV and to reset it follow these steps:


    1. Turn off the television and wait for 5 minutes.

    2. After 5 minutes unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.


    3. Let the television remain without power for more then 1 minute.


    4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. If the television is plugged into a power surge protector, remove it from there and plug it directly into the wall outlet. Turn on the television. If the issue is resolved, then the problem is with the power surge protector and not the television.




    If the issue is not resolved then this might have happened due to over-voltage. Please check the power supply unit for swollen/bulged capacitors and burnt wires/components on the power supply board of your TV. You should try and turn off the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it. Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components.


    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

    Won`t turn on


    Hi,
    Try leaving it unplugged for longer period of time. Look on the remote for any possible reset function. Try power button without the remote. If any ot these doesn't work there is a power supply module inside that malfunctioned. If under warranty contact where you purchased it. If not under warranty if you can get the module it is a simple plug up procedure.
