Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need the following info to troubleshoot the problem.
- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV?
- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to the TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

It is Viera Panasonic Model TC-P60GT30
Purchased 5/21/11
connected to Comcast Cable Box and wifi
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, lets try following step that might help to fix the issue

- Have you tried to disconnect TV and cable box power cords from the power outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, let cable box reboot that may take several minutes and check?
If not yet, please try it now and reply back with the result

TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Did not work just shut off and turned on in one minute
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Sorry to hear that, does it happen if connect a DVD player to the TV?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
there is no DVD player attached.We have Comcast and the cable box is the main box and it is DVR
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

I understand, we need to verify the TV with any other video source at this point, can you try to connect a DVD player to the TV as a test as this will verify the TV.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
i do not have a DVD player. I am playing a you tube video on the DVR part of my cable package and it is playing fine but the tv shuts off intermittently approx ever half hour or so
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, when TV shuts Off, does it turn back On itself OR needs to push the power button to get it On?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
turns on by itself within a minute
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

This is an odd problem, do you have any other video source/ device that we can try with the TV to make sure that it is internal problem of TV and the cable box isn't the cause of it?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago

will do. Also DVR you tube did just shut off and turn on.Maybe he can change out the box to test to see if it is the tv or the cable box
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Yes, thats what I want to do as we are dealing with at least two things at the same time here and need to figure out which one is faulty.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

In my opinion, TV would be fine and seems cable box issue causing it.

Hi Shahid, this is John, Sharon's husband. It's a bit difficult to say right now but; my instincts are telling me it's the cable box and I want a day or so to explore that. I may try and circle back with this on Staurday if that's possible. Thanks
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Hi John, please take your time and we can continue it by tomorrow

Thanks
