Hi!

 

Are you saying that the TV will play for a bit, then the picture goes away, but then it comes back on by itself after about 30 seconds to a minute?

No.

The TV does not have a picture or voice. The TV's power goes on when the power button is pushed, then it goes off , then on then off. until you turn off the power button the tv will cycle on /off.

TV Technician: Chuck Williams, Technician replied 8 years ago

Are any of the front panel lights flashing (there are 3 of them) when you try to turn it on?
