Good day..

Yes sir there's a possibility that your power supply is not working well..Automatic shutting down is cause of voltage drop or the output voltage is go down when the load activate..

You have to do is follow this step:

First,open the cover of your TV by loosening all screws at the back.

Secondly,after you open the cover the power supply reveal..Then try to look at the capacitors if it is leak or bulging on top.

Like this:

Thirdly,if you see any leak capacitor remove the power supply from the TV by removing all screws

fourthly,after you remove the unit replace it with the same type and ratings of capacitor.By using soldering iron and soldering pump..(reminders: the capacitors is have a polarity (-/+)so be careful.Also be care with solder the parts make sure that no shorted solder to avoid short circuit..

And finally,test it by powering ON.

Thank you for asking FIXYA for technical assistance

Good luck

I m no expert but it sounds like you need a new motherboard or at least your PSU. I had a similar problem and used the opportunity to have my techo genius up grade the mother board and a fresh PSU and upgraded to windows7 and everything works like a dream and much more power!!!!!

No signal through hdmi ports

Check the hdmi cables be sure their in proper working condition, wiggle the cables around see if picture comes up. If not and the cables are good then the hdmi processor on the main board of your TV is defective. Alot of times hdmi ports tend to burn so see if you smell a burnt smell near or around the hdmi ports. but before you do anything be sure sure your TV settings are correct for hdmi....

What do I do when my iTouch has a USB cable, an arrow, and the iTunes icon on it?

plug it to your computer, it need to be restored.

If you haven't done anything stupid before that screen appeared, try turning it off first by holding the power and the home button at the same time for around 10 sec. (or until the image from your iPod screen disappears). After that, turn it back on by holding the power button for around 3 sec. Let it load first before you do anything. If the same screen appear again, then, that's the time you restore.

The screen flashed and die really easily.

You need to go to Settings, [on the iPod] then go to Brightness. Mess with that and see what you like. I, personally, like my screen to be at 25%.
If that's not the problem, try going to Backlight in Settings. It gives you choices or Off, 2 secs, 5 secs, 10 secs, 20 secs, 30 secs and Always On.
Another issue that I've had is when I'm turning my iPod on from the Sleep option. The screen flashes and turns black when I do this. If you press the Menu button or any of the other options on the Scroll Wheel.
If that doesn't help you with your problems, then I probably haven't had them and suggest that you Google your issue.

My tv urgent

Hi - first check that all the fans are rotating - the set will shut down if they are not.
***** WARNING potentially FATAL voltages (up to 400V DC) exist on the PSU boards - if you don't know exactly what you are doing don't ! *******
Unfortunatly the fault could be on a) PSU b) CPU board, as this monitors the PSU voltages and will shut down the set if the measured voltages are wrong c) plasma drive circuits - if these are drawing excessive current, or someother fault exists the fault feedback signal to the CPU board will activate and the set will again shut off.
Check the PSU voltages, the standby power must be OK otherwise the set wouldn't work at all !. The +5V switches on first followed by the +70V and +170V (about 1-2 secs delay.)

If the 70 and 170 dont come up try removing (with the power DISCONNECTED) the two large double row connectors on the PSU board near the 70/170 V test points - these supply the plasma drive circuits - the set will still switch off as there is a fault feedback line from the drivers, but it should stay on long enough to check the voltages.
