Hello,

The power light may be flashing or if you are runing with a series light bulb it may be cycling on and off continuously. There may be a chirping or clicking sound from inside the set. (Note: using too small a series light bulb load during testing for the size of the TV may also result in this condition.)

If there is a low voltage regulator or separate switching supply, it could be cycling on and off if the horizontal output, flyback, or one of its secondary loads were defective.

Does this TV have a separate low voltage regulator and/or switching power supply or is it all part of the flyback circuit? For the following, I assume it is all in one (most common).

Some simple things to try first:

Verify that the main filter capacitor is doing its job. Excessive ripple on the rectified line voltage bus can cause various forms of shutdown behavior. An easy test is to jumper across the capacitor with one of at least equal voltage rating and similar capacitance (make connections with power off!).

Use a Variac, if possible, to bring up the input voltage slowly and see if the TV works at any point without shutting down. If it does, this could be an indication of X-ray protection circuit kicking in, though this will usually latch and keep the set shut off if excessive High Voltage were detected.

Does not shut off


with the car running the cap should be on. there is an adjuster near the terminals. be ready to adjust. run the car for a minute and then sut it off and adjust it so just turns off within a minute of sutting the car off. it may take a couple tries to fine-tune it. it now, should automatically switch on and off as the voltage changes between running, and resting.

My Magnavox digital converter box shuts itself off every 5 minute


Check that you have not got an auto power off setting on. Check that the aerial connections are good. That the signal is strong from the stations it is picking up. Weak signals can cause the box to shut down.
It the box is very hot when it shuts down, you might have a fault on it.

Lennox Gas Furnace that turns on and shuts off in minutes


After troubleshooting like mad, I found that the flame sensor (rod that sits within the flame) was fouled with carbon on the surface. I believe this shields the rod from proper heat detection and the sensor reports that there is no flame and to shut off the gas valve to avoid explosion. Once I pulled out the rod and cleaned it with a wire brush, I have no problem whatsoever--fixed.
