42" plasma tv turns itself off problem

Hi i have a 42" plasma tv which keeps turning off by itself. Sometimes it does it every 10 -20 min apart.Now and then it may keep going for a few hours then turn off. I have to leave it turned off for a while then i can turn it back on with the remote. It has a seperate unit that runs the tv.
The tv is about 10 years old.
Can this be fixed?

    We recently bought a brand new sharp aquous LC 37D44U TV - whilst watching it will turn itself off (no power- light on either) and then suddenly on. We have fully investigated that it's not a socket or our electricity supply issue. It's very strange. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: TV will lose picture then go into standby!

Yes it is a temp problem as you found out for your self Great call on that BUD.. the best thing to do is contact sharp to see if they have had simular problems and if there are any recalls on this model . If not they will instruct you where to send the monitor into to be fixed.

Comment by Guest, posted on Oct 25, 2008My Aquos has the same problem. I'm not sure how I discovered this, but when I lean the TV forward and hit the power button it will turn on every time. If the screen blacks out and I don't lean it forward when I hit the power button, the screen will just remain blank. It is very weird, but at least repeatable.

- Thank you, Guest. That did it. It definitely seems to be a problem with the TV. Tilting it and hitting the power button helped me get the video back.

I have a Samsung 42 " Plasma Model no: PS42Q96HD.


Hi, this could be a problem with the power supply in the tv, it is common especially on some Samsungs and specific repair kits are available quite cheaply if you have good soldering skills.

Usually this is caused by capacitors that have dried up and split, you can normally tell as the capacitors are bulging on the pcb, you can get them in a kit as I said eBay sometimes do them or you can buy them indivually from a good electronics components supplier, make sure you get the correct values for each!! marked on the side of the capacitors in xx/x V, xxx/x uF and 105oC. (the x's represent numbers)

The picture below shows the type of theing that happens, the brown ones are bulging/split on the top whereas the black one is fine.

High Voltages can exist in these sets, never attempt anything while plugged in and
if in doubt do not attempt it yourself and seek the advice of a qualified TV Technician.

Tv shuts off and on by itself


Hi,

I only hope you have connected the tv with a stabilizer or is it inbuilt? This might be because of Voltage fluctutations. Also, check the connectivity of the internal power card.

Regards,

Send it back ASAP and get a replacement! I'm serious. You wouldn't want to baby sit this lemon by missing work because you're waiting for a home service tech provided by the company. When the tech comes, he will not have the part required to fix the unit and you'll be waiting at least a week to get another service call. That's another day missing work. You are one lucky guy if the servicer can totally fix the unit to your satisfaction in two visits. Days missed at work could very well add up into buying a new TV. Do not take ownership of this problematic unit especially if you just bought it. Send it back!
