If you are constantly having this problem with every tv you get it is not the tv. ALSO make sure it is random and not when you are using other items because of frequency issues. One more thing is static. I would talk to geeksquad at the store and have them problem solve it in a different environment from your house.

Tv keeps turning its self off

Many issues can cause this, there is no simple answer, but one common issue is the convergence circuit failing. The set will need repaired.

If you are handy with electronics you see if the convergence ic's are failing, usaly on these there is a short jumper connector from the right board to the middle board closest to you from the back, if you disconnect this connector from the back and the tv comes on it is a convergence ic problem. In this case you need to replace the ic's on the convergence board the two stk392 ic's plus check the resistor.
