My Samsung big screen showed the same symptoms. It ended up being two $5 resisters that burned out a very short time after purchase. My extended warranty took care of it but it took several service calls and the end solution was to replace the entire light engine.

Most of the time heat is the cause for shut down. Check the vents which allow air to circulate thru the set, also be sure the fan is working.

The first thing a repair man will do is replace the bulb. If you can do it yourself you can save some $$.

My advice is to find a good TV guy. One who's been around for a while. Sorry couldn't be more help. Good Luck!

On your tv you have cooling fans on the back side you will need to check to make sure that they are running. Lay your tv on the bed take off back cover (it's not hard) and used some air-in-the- can to remove dust from the back! If you need a fan go to Partstore.com (1-866-925-PART

Television shuts itself off


i had the same problem with my set shutting off and was told it may be the ballast so i changed that but it still would start up and shut down after a few mins, then i was asked if the bulb had been changed and i had not, so i did change the bulb and have not had it shut down yet. :) (so try a new bulb)

Sony lcd projection tv repeatedly turning on & off


There are 2 primary things that can cause this problem - a bad TEMP sensor that is sensing too much heat, OR, a lamp that is going bad, which sometimes causes excessive heat before it dies. Either way, the set will shut itself off, and you can turn it back on in about 5 min or so, and it will work OK....for another period of time before it shuts off again.

You need a good TV Tech with the Sony Service Codes for your set, to come out & check your set. The Service Codes will tell him the exact problem you are having, and how many hours your set has been running. Most of the time a new bulb solves this problem, (if youe set is at least 3 years old).

My Panansonic TV shuts down every few minutes and the LED blinks three times


I still have that problem. I calle Mfr and also spoke to repair shops recommended by them and they said they estimate a cost of 300-400$ or so approx. I am waiting to buy a new LCD which could be few 100 more but at least dont have to live with the old one and keep spending money...

If you have an ice maker in the freezer compartment try raising the bail arm and shutting it off. It is possible that an ice maker will increase your run time.
