A bad capacitor is a possibility, but lets define the problem first.

The set is shutting down because a problem is detected. This is commonly known as "protect" mode. With plasma sets, there are many reasons for this to happen. There are effectively at least 2 stages of power supply inside these sets. 1) The standard power supply that drives the video processing etc and 2) the plasma suplpy. A fault in either supply stage can cause this problem. I would not suggest just changing capacitors without an understanding of the function of that part. The cap may have been damaged as the result of another part failure. Just changing the cap without furthrer investigation can lead to more problems. This may not always be the case, but it can happen. At the very least, I would suggest that you invest in a detailed repair estimate from an authorized service center. At least that way you can have some cinfidense that the repair will be correct and long lasting.

Let me break this down, The tv powers up for 10 seconds the shuts off. This issue would be in the power supply board now let me break down the possiable causes not you got to be aware I am not there I never seen your tv ext ext.

1. Bad eletrolytic capacitor"

*This is caused by stress,heat,dust,and the list goes on. what happends is the eletrlytic capacitor basically swells up or leaks causeing it to fill and the drain real quick "cutting off the flow of eletricty to the rest of the tv ultmatly shutting it down"

A capacitor looks like this only power on for 10 seconds and shuts off - fd12474.jpg
These capcitors cost $2.00 with a soldering iron , solder removal and some tools you can extract these and put in new ones. WARNING: It may contain voltage left over so if you do not know what your doing by all means leave it to the tv repair guy. I do not want Fixya on the 11 o clock news, or my **** in court explaining why I told a novice to extract one of these. You can get a jolt it can cause injury up including your death. So with that in mind if you do not know do not touch.

With all the warning aside now that you understand the dangerious voltages you basically extract the old and put in the new.

DO NOT SHOOT THE MESSENGER

Please be safe. There are plenty of youtube videos on how end users saved thousands of bucks on TV repair.

Have a nice day It would be considerate if you left a rating and feedback before you go. Many thanks for using fixya.com

Press and hold the power button for @ 10 seconds. That should shut down your device. Then, after it shuts down, again press and hold the power button until it reboots.

Projection TV keeps shutting down


Good Day;

Sounds like you have a bad green picture tube that has failed. To check this out; remove front speaker grill, remove small panel, you will see three CRT's (pictue tubes) sticking down, remove the little board on the middle tube then restore power. If TV stays on more then likely the CRT is bad but not always the driver on board could also be bad, check voltages.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Player shutting down after 10 seconds


Shutting down completely like power is gone or just DVD stopping with power on? If completely shutting down the look in power supply and find bad capacitor and replace. If DVD stops with power then look at laser, clean or maybe damaged.
