Welcome to the site! I'm Dan. Before I can help you troubleshoot, I need to know the model number from the TV's rear panel.

Great, thank you! OK do you want assistance in replacing the power supply, or do you have a multimeter and the ability to measure voltages?

OK, great. When the TV shuts off, what do >>the LEDs<< on the front of the TV do? Do any of them flash?
