magnavox tv model#55P8288, shuts off by itself

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.

Worked for my brother...
