Our TV works for several hours and then turns itself off. A couple of minutes later, it turns itself back on again. Then it goes through the on/off process several times within a short timespan (a few minutes on, a few minutes off). We turn off the TV let it cool down. Turn it on and it is good for another several hours.
Could it be a fuse? If so, can we fix or do we have to call a repairman?

Tries tv unplug,replug it back like about an hour later for the tv resetting itself back to the factory setting.The tv now should be working again.If the tv still have the same problems,mean the tv power supply board it is the causes and the problems.That the board where the tv power a/c cord plug into it.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish the tv power supply board for the replacement.
Check the "Sleep Timer" settings. If set to 45 minutes then TV would automatically turn itself off 45 minutes from being turned on. The variance in the "on" times is due to the TV turning itself off after not getting a signal from the remote for fifteen minutes.

It's probably a cracked solder joint in the power supply / horizonal drive stages. As the unit heats up the joint is seperating and breaking connection. It could also be a component failing when it gets hot. Usually the voltage regulator or Horizonal Output Transistor (both mount to heat sinks).
If you know how to solder and want to tinker, unplug the set for a couple days (to let the power capacitors discharge) and resolder and crystalized it cracked joints on the board(s) where the power stages, and flyback transformer are located.
If you decide to operate the set with the back off, please be careful. The high voltage on a TV can be 30,000+ volts.
