Customer Question

I have a SVA HD4208TIII-PDP 42-Inch it runs for about 2hours and then shuts off. I can turn it back on with the remote, but then it will shut back off ater a few minutes. I have to let the tv cool down for awhile to get it to work for another 2 hours. Is there an easy fix?

  • The power supply is overheating and the tv is shutting down to prevent a fire or damage to the tv.
  • The only thing you can do is make sure the vents in the back are not blocked and air can move freely.
  • You should have it serviced -- note that the SVA HD4208TIII-PDP does not have a good reputation for reliability.
