Ours does the same thing. My husband researched it online. The cheap solution is to unplug the TV (or plug the TV into a power strip and switch it off) when you are done watching it. A computer board inside overheats, and it's a built-in protection mechanism for it to turn off. Otherwise, it's over $100 to fix the computer board.

When the set shuts off if you try to press power again does the led blink? If so let me know the number of blinks

You TV has a bad CRT, a red CRT by the sounds of it. This TV is rather old, perhaps 11-13 years of age? Your TV has given you many years of service and I do applaud you for the care you have given it and the TV for it’s reliable in your home. The trouble you face with a rear projection CRT set of this age is that you can’t just change 1 CRT tube and expect it to be reliable and produce a good picture. All 3 tubes should be replaced, as they have all aged the same. The lives of these tubes are only about 7 years. A tube is not any easy or inexpensive repair on any RPJ TV. When you are faced with the cost of 3 tubes, which may not even be available in the market place… You should consider retiring this old friend and keep the manufacture in mind as you make a new purchase.

Picture goes off tv!


It sounds like either the back light inverter board is going out or the power supply that supply the 24v for the backlight circuits is going out. Look for bad bulging capacitors first, this is typical problem for 4 years old set. I will not turn it on anymore becuase it can cause more damage if the power supply is going bad.

Sony tv snow for first 5 minutes on


Probably dry solder joints in the tuner section.

When the set warms up, the faulty joint/s make contact, then lose contact again when it cools down.
