magnavox 32' lcd tv keeps turning off

Hello. I recently bought a Magnavox 32" LDC TV. The model no. is 32MF231D/37B. I connected my DirecTV satellite receiver to it with the S-Video and Audio L + R cables. At first everything was fine when I turned on the TV; the usual channels were being shown just like on my old set. However, after a couple of minutes the screen would become totally distorted with black and white lines. There is a static sound as well. During the time of distortion, I cannot do anything to the TV with the remote nor manually (like turning if off, change channel, change volume). I have to wait for it to eventually shut off on its own. After turns it automatically shuts off, I cannot turn it back on again, either manually or with the remote. The only thing I can do is unplug the power cord from the back of the TV and wait about 60 seconds then plug it back it. Then I can turn on the set, but it does the same thing over and over. Please help!

Exactly the same thing here.

We just took it back and they replaced it with "that happens a lot". No questions asked.
