Vizio keeps turning off by itself ?


Help needed,

I have a TV that is probably a little over a year old. This just started about a month ago, the TV after being on for a period of time just cuts off by itself. This is aggrevating as hell

I know this is not normal but why is this happening and what can I do about it ?

are its vents blocked? is it dusty?

could be overheating and turning off to save itself.

The vents are clear but it definetly could be dusty. Living here in Lubbock where there are dust storms and 20-30 MPH winds daily, dust could be the issue.

Check to see that you are not sitting on the remote.

Stu, I need some tech help.

You know anything about 802.11G vs 802.11N?

My Sony Bravia does the same thing.

Randomly the sound goes off then a few seconds later the TV turns itself off and then back on.

Anybody know what the deal is besides maybe dusty vents?

My Sony has a setting on it that saves energy. If it's no for a while and doesn't detect any movement it will turn off. It's called presence sensor. I just turned it off.
