    It's a 2010 model series 6 model no la46c650l1f and no noise or smoke i was watching a show the screen went black and then I couldn't get it back on the red light flickered and then didn't flicker at all then after trying again and again it worked. It's only 6 months old it's a reolacement for the last one. Until now it's worked perfectly and sorry there was no sound when the screen went black. But it made all the usual noise when it was trying to start it just kept dying

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. This is a common problem on most of the sets. By unplugging or switching it off, you have actually soft reset the TV and made it work temporarily. Unfortunately, this is an internal problem and needs repair.I would be able to provide more appropriate solution to your problem if you could answer the below questions :-

.1. How old is the unit?
2. Is there any power surge?
3. Kindly mention the model of the TV?
4. When the screen went black, did you still hear the sound?
5. Any smoke or pop up noise or clicking noise?

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    If the unit is under warranty, i would rather advise you to call up seller or manufacturer and complaint the same unless use the way till it works.The symptoms you mentioned are highly suggestive of initial stages of main board or power supply board failure. It would be tough to speculate how long this set would work without and problem and could be reset by unplugging or re plugging. It could work for few hours or few days or even few months till you would see the condition goes worst. I am sorry to be bearer of bad news, however there is no simple fix.

    Let me know,so that we could proceed.

    Hope i helped you.

I can turn on the tv and it's fine for about 20 min then the screen goes black with sound. I turn it off for a minute and it's fine for another 20 min. Like it's overheating.

It might also be a bad solder connection, short of checking voltages what I have done in this type of situation is with back off use a small fairly high speed fan - a hair dryer set to cool works, to cool areas of the boards inside to localize which board is causing this, with the set in failure, got it? it goes out cool it with a handheld hair dryer with air set to cool, when you find the spot where the problem is it will either instantly come back or try to.

Do it a few times to confirm which board is bad and locate a replacement board and swap it out.

TV has gone into "protect mode" to do just that to protect against the damaging failure that has been detected, you will need a servicer to diagnose the failure. Good luck and Merry Christmas!
