Hey Bubba,
If your TV is turning on by itself at about the same time each day you may have a timer activated, turn it it off, the TV's micro might need too be reset. To reset unplug your TV from the a/c outlet for at least 5 minutes.

My TV turns itself off and on by itself,


If you're having the TV set completely turn off, then on, which will be accompanied by audible relay clicks, then this is a problem relating to bad solder connections on the main or convergence boards which will require someone with a sharp eye and savvy with a soldering iron. Most of the time, bad solder joints will be around the convergence amplifiers or in the high voltage section.

My tv turns itself off while watching it after awhile


if it turns off and the timer light starts blinking you have a bad dm module, very expensive, it the light doesn't flash you have either bad front switches or something on the signal board, you can remove the speaker grill and disconnect both plugs and use your remote, this will disconnect the switches. if it still shuts off, you need baord repair, may be a bad solder connections, may be a chip/board needing replaced, you need a repairman and alot of money at that point.

Its the lamp that needs replacing. It will run for a couple of seconds and then it would dim or turn off.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
