    After a five or ten minute span the tv turns off. If I unplug it for a five or ten minute span it will come on again. However, it may turn off after a few minutes or it may run for hours. Always a question as to how long it will last. My tv is the 20" flat screen withiout the dvd player. Ken

I have 20MC4306. Recently when you turn it off it turns itself back on. Also when you turn it on shuts off after 2 seconds. Tried putting in a video vhs then press play and wait few seconds and hit...


Sometimes when the TV recives a brodcast signal for a new update to the mainframes firmware, it will have to turn itself on to install/recive the update and aslong as it is connected to a power source it can do this. hope this helped answer your question. Have a good day :)

TV comes on, but shuts off after 3 minutes. I must wait at least 5 minutes to get it to turn back on again. TV will ONLY stay on if DVD drawer is OPEN!


dvd is overheating its circuit. Keep the tray open to dry up condensation. then leave TV on standby to keep moisture out.

Tv turns itself off after bout ten seconds


Your over voltage circuits(hi-voltage and low voltage) are defective.When the voltage exceeds the specs it shuts off the tv.Unless your a service tech,you can't fix this.There are components on the main circuit tha t have to be changed.Sorry, no easy fix.

The vcr carriage was probably damaged ( broken gear or carriage gear, etc ), As for repairing it, it may not be worth it and chances are, you won't find a new carriage for the unit. I have, in the past, disarmed the VCR unit and at least the customer could watch the TV. Thats not possible in every set, but it seems to work in the majority of them. Good Luck
