Why does my TV keep turning itself off?

Asked by theabk (683points) August 27th, 2007

When I turn my TV on, it slowly comes to life (like always), but then right after the sound starts, it turns off with a click. It’s attached to a DVR cable box and a DVD player, if that might have anything to do with it…

Your TV is turning itself off because it is broken.

If you think the DVR or DVD player might have something to do with the problem, try disconnecting them. See if your problem goes away. This is called trial and error. It’s a form of problem solving.

Dont be mean guys. Tv’s (especially projections) sometimes turn them selves off because of overheating. Is it too warm where the set is?

it may be a power supply issue; if a tube (standard definition) then get of ck’d out but if it’s an HD of any kind it may be the resolution setting due to the fact that DVD players are essentially sending a standard def signal 480p while the monitor is looking for a High Def signal 720p or 1080i or 1080p are the three main settings; as metioned previously disconnect the sources (player decks)?and see if the monitor turns in then un the settings you can check the resolution

it could also be the high output transformer. It is dangerous for an unskilled person to mess with call a repairman.
