This particular model has a history of this problem.

This sounds like a safety feature built into the television. It may be trying to protect itself from an unsafe electrical source. The more expensive the equipment, the more sophisticated the power supply that converts the power from your outlet into your television. There could have been a lightning strike that has disabled the tv. Or it could be a faulty outlet.
Before called for a technician, I recommend plugging the television into a different outlet. use a good quality extension cord if necessary. You may find that your outlet is not polarized correctly.

Symphonic WF20L6 20" tv powers down about 30 seconds after turning it on. I found on this site someone said it was the "Power supply faulting for internal problem". My question is how do I...

I think the transformers in these units are the problem not the "power board" I have a symphonic that had a bad transformer in it two legs were not putting out any voltage so I replaced the whole main board for about 50 usd. I may put a small fan inside to move some air around that transformer so that it stays cool

It sounds like you have full screen closed caption turned on. Turn of closed caption and that should clear it up.

8 month old Symphonic 20 inch lcd tv turns off itself every 3-5 seconds

these sets that shut down or turn themselves off after a few seconds usally have a bad backlite board in them. look closely at the screen and see if one section looks darker than the rest of the screen (top middle or bottom - top seems most common in my cases). some times if you put the tv on an unused input you can see the variation of light level on the screen, but don't get confussed by looking at the screen from too great of an angle. thanks ......techman 580-243-8025
