Tv works for about 10 mins then shuts its self off, if let to sit for a while can turn back on and works for about 10 more mins then turns its self off again, is it over heatings? or are the capasitors...


You mostly see this when the bulb is bad. I dont remember the tech answer however changing the bulb fixes 95 percent of them. It is possible your power supply is going bad as well, but you would probably see problems trying to get the tv to come on.

Good Luck
