Poltergeist ! definitley. Probably possessing your remote control, stuck button, either there or on the tv itself. Take a q-tip with a little isopropyl alcohol and clean around control surfaces. Do the buttons spring back out when you push them in? Maybe its receiving signals from the great beyond,(your neighbors, kids, co-inhabitants). I once did a carpet job where this guy was channel surfing for at least an hour(continuous), it wasn't my place to say anything to the dude, but then I noticed he was sleeping on his remote control.
It could be a bad switch, with a thermal problem, (picture how a christmas tree bulb blinks on and off), interrogate the suspect with a hair dryer,(not too close, or too long, it will melt things) just see if
heat has any effect on the symptoms. And it's cheaper than the reverse process, the canned air treatment where you invert the can to get pure compressed liquid, and the resulting 70 below zero evaporation cooling. It's better for things that boot up fine, until they get warm, and then they shut down, the reverse of you symptoms, yes?

Turn on without remote control


If the TV was switched OFF by remote control for the last time, you can't switch it back ON, without its remote control.
Just try this. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket. Wait for at least 5 minutes and plug it back. Switch it ON by its front panel power ON/OFF switch. Just press any button [Ch UP / Ch DN or Vol UP / Vol DN] Sometimes this might turn ON your TV.

We own a Sony FWD-50PX2 television. A few weeks ago it would not turn on. The power is going to the television. When you try to turn the tv on you can hear it pop and the red light showing it is off...


this is a common issue i think. below steps solved this issue for an user.

-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes)
-Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each)
-Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on

Tv turning on and off by itself - never fully turning on


Most likely failed capacitors in the power supply. I am currently having the same problem with my 26 month old LN46A750. Samsung has agreed to fix this as an out of warranty "courtesy repair".

Pioneer SD-P6091 Projection TV - TV turns off by itself


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
