magnavox tv model#55P8288, shuts off by itself

lulu_2007August 27, 2007

I have a 6 yr.old Magnavox big screen TV that shut itself off while watching.I could unplug & let sit for awhile and it would come back on. I did this for awhile and then it finally would not come on at all. Also when I would turn up volume on the Tv itself it would change the channel, or I could change channel and it would go to the AV1 or AV2. I put it in the garage for about 6 months and brought it back in and it worked again for about 2 months now it doesn't work again. Any suggestions would be so very helpful. model# 55P8288 serial# 58962295, chassis# PTV910.

Thank You.....

Don't know if this would help. I read a while ago that dust inside can lead to the auto shut off problem in older sets. Try cleaning the vented areas as best you can with suction.
