Our 4 year old Magnavox tv keeps turning itself off. I unplugged it and then it stays on a little longer but turns itself off again. Any sugestions?? Toss or repair? Something I can try? Thanks!

Reply to Edward's Post: Hi
Model 27 MDTR20/17 When I turn the set on either with remote or manually after about one minute it turns off by itself. Otherwise it has been fine. Hope this helps.

The TV is shutting down when the safety circuitry is detecting a problem with the TV. Magnavox is no longer know for manufacturing a dependable TV set. This model is known for having problems with the power supply. Once repaired it can fail at any time. Since this TV set is not a HDTV I would reccomend replacement. The repair is likely to cost more than the value of the TV.
