From your brief explanation I thinks that there is some loose solderings inside your TV. To make sure about it, you just give a small hit with your palm on the top or side or your TV, when it shuts down. Never use any hard material. Use ony your palm. If it comes on atleast for a short period of time, you can determine that there is some loose soldering inside it. As it is a 13" TV, and a small one, you can do it by yourself. Open the back cover, and pull out the printed circuit board inside, anc check for any component for loose contact. If it seems to be, resolder the point by applying a little more solder. Usually, some components of all TVs will heat up while working. Repeated heating and cooling can cause loose soldering contacts.
Do this first, and wants any more explanations, ask me through Fixya. Ok.
are you in a state that has changed from analog to digital? if so, you need a digital convertor box. but you should be able to get Canada channels. Also, change your Atenna type from Cable to Air. This would also solve your problem.
Your tv power supply is over heating and that is why it shuts down. Think of a hair dryer that shuts off after over heating. It is a safety feature. Depending on the age, it is most likely a 100 lb paper weight. Find a place that takes broken tv's and get a new lcd.
Sounds like the power supply may be going out, or check and see if there is a circuit breaker button on the back. Otherwise there may e a blown fuse that is internal. Don't open the back unless you have training on what is safe to touch as the picture tube can maintain a HUGE electrical charge that can stop your heart if you accidently touch the wrong thing. Sounds like a weak power supply tho. Jay
