Customer Question
TV turned on about...

TV turned on about 15 - 20 minutes then red lights blinking and TV turns off

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

Hitachi TV model # unknown here, 72" TV, several years old, we are looking for date, right now I would say at least 12 years old. Sorry for wait

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

Tv menu, wife thinks so, only use direct tv input. Wife only person who watches it.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your Hitachi? What happened right before this?

About 2 weeks, prior to this problem, no problems at all.

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

TV is on Direct Tv only, don't have any regular antenna connected, I did connect 2 VCRs, which hasn't been used for years, but are still connected, As I don't watch tv, I can't give any further info.

Okay, since it's impossible to fix a problem if you're not on site with the equipment, please reply back when you are at the TV.
