Television turns off by self but always comes back on
I have a Panasonic 36" TV, model CT36D32 that is 8 years old. For the past year here is what has been happening:
After turning the TV on, it sometimes will turn off after 5 or 10 minutes. After turning off you'll hear a "clicking" within 1 or 2 minutes and the TV may turn back on. If it does not turn back on, you'll hear the same clicking againg a minute or two later and then the TV will turn back on.
This cycle of turning off then comin back on may repeat three times within the first 30 minutes of operation before the TV stays on until I TURN IT OFF.
-seems like this on/off cycle occurrs only after the TV has been off for several hours
-the TV is plugged directly into a receptacle not into a cable box
-I recently moved and the same situation occurrs at my new residence as at my former residence.
-the TV always comes back on eventually
Has anyone else experienced this?
