Customer Question

I have a Toshiba 46 inch television and it stays on for a little bit and turns off 90% of the time within 5 minutes. But it turns off 100% of the time.

Customer: Yes. 1 minute please
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: 46L5200UI, it's about 5 yrs old.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

JA: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Well I'm thinking its the supply power board. Maybe some capacitors? Okay.
