Question about Televison & Video
A component inside the tv is causing a short, which in turn , is causing the protection circuit in the tv to shut it down. It could be a lot of things which are causing it, but it definately sounds as though, to me anyway, that is the cause. It could be something like a failed capacitor on the power circuit, or it maybe a IC that has a dry joint, the only way to know for sure would be to open the tv and check, not advisable if you are not trained to do this. There are high voltages in these tv's that can seriously hurt or even kill somebody. If you want you could open it and just check for bulging capacitors. they look like this
good caps look like this
to test other components would require a multimeter and a service manual to get the correct readings to check for.
Next time you ask for help though a tip would be to supply the make and model of tv in your question
