I just experienced this problem. For the past month I have had to turn the TV on and off 20 times or more before it would stay on. I read & read on how to fix it. I called Vizio - no help. I called Costo and explained I know there new 90 warranty on electronics and that my TV is 4.5 years old. Due to my length of membership with Costo they are giving me a new TV. I'll be heading there tomorrow to tell them they have a new campaign manager in their corner.

When I turn my TV on it will turn off by itself in about a minute and the red power light on the front of the TV will blink. The remote control nor the power button on the front of the TV will turn it back on. I have to unplug the TV for a few seconds and plug it back in to make it come on. It usually takes two or more of these unplug and plug back in sessions to get it to stay on. Some times it takes up to fifteen before it will stay on. Please help.

My Hitachi Mod # 50FX19K, Ser # V6H000056 Man Aug 1996 has a power problem. About a month ago it started turning off for no apparent reason after I was watching for an hour or so. I could turn it back on with no problem. That time period kept getting shorter and sometimes it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to come on. Once back on it would play until I turned it off. Now it only stays on for about 30 seconds and I can't get it to restart. If I wait and hour or two it will come back on but only

I have a 9 yr old D52W20 RCA tv. It turns on and is fine for about 35 minutes. Then it turns off and then right back on again. it takes about 15 seconds from the time it turns off for the picture to reappear. It will stay on anywhere from 5 to 30 seconds before turning off and back on again. I had a repairman come in and he said it was not the capacitors but said he needed more information. At that time the unit would be fine for a couple of hours before it would start acting up. Any thoughts

The TV seems to take ages to turn on, the red on/off light flashes and then goes off completely and the screen stays blank. It then switches on again and after a few seconds/minutes will switch back off. Eventually it seems to warm up and stay on. On occasion it will take up to 10 minutes for the TV to warm up and switch on. Once on there is no problems. I have not tried fixing this as I feel it may well be a job for a qualified technician. Please advise if the TV is safe to use, and what's need
