    This is a fan problem. One or more of the fans is probably not spinning.

Some of the fans are encased in areas you can't see. If you have a meter and want to determine which fan is in failure, you can find the small 3 wire fan connectors and measure the voltages on the wires.

Black wire - Ground
Red wire - 12v
White wire - 5v (RPM wire)

Zero (0) volts on the RPM wire means the fan isn't rotating. You will only have about 10 seconds or so to check the fans, so measure quickly and turn the TV back on to measure the ones you missed when it shuts down. Even a rotating fan can have a bad RPM sensor internally to the fan.

NOTE - these fans operate the same way they do in computers, providing rotation RPM to the motherboard for monitoring.

You are correct that a 4 flash is a fan problem. It could be that one or more of the fans is not turning, I have also seen a failure of the fan rotation sensor that tells the TV that fans are turning cause this problem. Lastly, in rare cases a power supply problem can cause a 4x failure, when the supply for the fans fails.

LG TV TURNED OFF BY ITSELF THEN RED LIGHT FLASH 4 TIMES


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.

Tele turned itself off, red light blinks 4 times then pauses and blinks 4 times again.


You can try unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in, but according to the manual, the standby LED:
Lights up red when your TV is in PC power saving mode. If the LED blinks in red continuously, this may indicate the TV needs servicing.
