Re: tv turn itself off after a couple of hours
Your problem is bad solder connections on the sweep or power supply board. In some rare cases I have seen the regulator IC with ring cracks arounfd the leads and causing the set to shut off all by itself. If you know how to solder and work on solid state printed circuit boards, you should not have too much problems finding bad connections or monitoring the B+ voltage to see if thats what is cutting off the set. If you have no circuit experience with TV's play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair, as it should not cost too much to find this problem, if it is just bad or cold solder connections. Good Luck
