TV shuts off.

TV just shuts off after a few minutes. If you keep trying it is more frequent. It's like its loosing a power latch on or something. Last time it came on it looked like the bulbs were not aligned.

Just replace the bulb first. They last a long time, but after a while if they don't simply blow, they will start to shut off for short periods, then restart. The odd thing is the whole set shuts down too, so something else also may be happening, maybe to do with the temperature control circuitry, that causes a full system shut down. My TV repair man said try this first before I bring the unit in for a diagnostic. Transporting them is not an easy thing to do, given the size of these TVs. I originally bought 3 extra bulbs in 2005, and now used up the last one, and I use the TV a lot.

The first thing to try is a new lamp. There should be an orange or red tag on the left side of your set that has the lamp number on it. The number will look something likr BP96-01434A. It probably won't be this exact number but will have that sort of format. Google "DLP lamp" and you'll find numerous sites that sell lamps. Shop around for the best price.

My Samsung hcn4226w won't stay on.


There are many protective circuits inside the set that will shut it down if a problem is detected. It sounds like there are intermittant detections of problems and the "restart" temporarily clears the problem. If the unit is no longer under warranty, open up the back with the set unplugged and try reseating all of the boards and connectors. The trip may have jared a few things loose. Update this with the results.

Thanks,
Dan

Try to turn on shuts down right a way ws_65809 7yrs old


You may just need to replace a few components in your tv or there mmight be something loose. First part of the TV that usually shows up with a problem is the power supply. Check the power supply for loose soldering or leaking capacitor. If there are none on those circuit make your way up to the main board and have it checked.

Mitsubishi WS-65313 65 in. TV will no longer power up.


You should call a good TV Tech. This problem cannot be solved by a consumer. The one thing you might try is to unplug it from the wall for a few minutes and then try it again.

Sony LCD Projection TV turning OFF!!!


I also have a Sony KDF-42WE655 42" Lcd television. We just changed the lamp (bulb) several weeks ago and has noticed that everytime we turn on the television it stays on about 30-40 seconds then cuts off. After about 15-20 seconds it cuts itself back on. Weird!! It must have something to do with changing the bulb!?!?

Sony TV keeps shutting down ever 5 mins


Could be loose connections on the board where the solder is expanding as it heats up causing a loose connection or something in the power supply or horizontal is over heating and your tv is going into shutdown protection . Good luck
