It turns on, stays on for a few seconds and then turns back off again

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?

No problem in the past. It is an Insignia. Checking the model number right now.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

I cannot seem to get to the menu at all.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I have tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a while but I still have the same problem. The model number is *****

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

It just started tonight. Nothing unusual happened right before this started,

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
