hello , was out when you replied

Did it shutdown after 20 minutes and won`t turn back on or it does this and you have to wait before you can turn it back on ?

If the latter , how long approx. before you can turn it back on ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

I have to step out again but will check on you in a bit , just send me your reply please .

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

The website (not me ) charges $26 for the phone call by the way , if you`d rather do it that way let me know

It shut down, period I'm just going to forget it and buy a new one. It has ceased functioning though not that old and with not much use.

Hello again

May not be much of a problem and may be cheap to repair as a second tv anyway .

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
