    The tv does not turn on automatically, it only turns itself off. The remote must be used to restart.

    I have the 56" model. Same problem with it turning off by itself. Seems like it is temperature related. The three lights in the front all blink when it shuts off. I tried moving the remotes and turning away from the set to be sure they were not the problem. I am thinking I must need a new fan eventhough I can still hear the current one working or a new lamp eventhough the picture looks fine.

    My Samsung TV (HLS6188) behaves this way after about 1.5 yrs. Sometimes, when i turned it back on, it stayed on for a long time. Sometimes, it shut down within a few minutes.

Over tv its getting aoutmatically off


Put your hand on the back of your TV to check for overheating, if your set keeps switching itself off without warning.

Many TV sets come equipped with a safety feature that switches the power off if the set gets too warm.

Check the cooling vents located at the rear of your unit. Vents can collect dust and dirt, resulting in the fans becoming blocked and failing to work properly.

Remove dirt from the vents with a damp, clean cloth. Ensure the air conditioning is kept at adequate levels in the room where your TV is located. Keep the drapes shut on hot, sunny days to keep the room cooler.

Check the sleep-timer function on your TV if it keeps turning off. A sleep-timer is used to turn a television set off after a certain period of time has elapsed. If the sleep-timer is not turned off, your television will continue to turn itself off after a certain period of time.

If the problem persists,then a heat sink has gone bad.

The on/off button simply toggles a low voltage circuit that powers your tv. If it is dusty, it may complete the electrical circuit and send a false signal.

Take a can of compressed air, open the back and clean the dust off the circuit boards.

NOTE;opening the TV VOIDS warranty!!

Picture shuts off

Is there a dark patch when you see the picture, easiest way to check is on the tv tuner with no cable attached, this way you have a grey static screen, if there is a darkness across the screen when it lights for that breif moment, then it may have a broken backlight tube. Had the same problem with my 32" LG.

Loud noise now tv wont turn on

More than not if it is a loud noise shortly after you turn the set on, the color wheel is bad. The color wheel is not available by itself and requires the complete light engine to be replaced. The part number for the light engine is 75002250. I would suggest having a technician replace this for you if this is the case. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

You may have a loose solder connection on the circuit board inside your set.
You need to have a technician check it for you.
