I have a Samsung TV Model # XXXXX and when I turn it on the picture comes on for about a minute, then the picture goes out for about a minute and then the Standby/Temp,
Timer and Lamp light goes on. Is this a simple fix?
Hello my name is Anthony
Thanks for the Question

Have you heard any unusual humming or screeching noises prior to this issue or even during the 30 seconds the set works?

Let me know please

No, nothing but I can't really say because it happened when I first turned it on this morning. But it was fine last night.
