Customer Question

I have an Hitachi 51 inch,51F59,projection color tv.
After running for about 2o min. the power light shut down .
This continued for about a week and getting worse.I decided it must
be overheating somewhere. I gave it its own plug in,put a fan behind the TV.
Aiso I might mention the screen appears to be darker before this happenes.
Anyway things improved greatly. For an hour or so It will play flaw, but after that time if a commercial comes on, it goes off.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it.
I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.

1- Any idea, how old is the TV?
2- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?
