After it's been on for 5 min or so the screen goes blank.

Customer Question
After it's been on...

After it's been on for 5 min or so the screen goes blank. The sound stay on for another 20-30 seconds then it goes off as well. It is about 10 years old.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your TV?

It is connected to DircTV if that's what you mean. And there is an old DVD/VCR player connected to it.

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

No. Not that I am aware of.

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

Several years ago we replaced a part for the internal projection that was going out. I believe it was about $100 and it has worked beautifully ever since.
