Bought a Sony KDL40W5500 from comet on monday, watching it tonight it switched itself off, came back on with no problems.

Hope this isn't going to start developing a fault, does anyone know of any common problems with this tv switching itself off?

Come to think of it, I've heard about powering off problems on some Sony TV's, I'd defo recommend you take it back.

I've got a Sony TV and maybe I've been lucky as mine always stays on.

My Sony KDL32D3000 does that; the pictures freezes for a second then it switches itself off. It's only ever happened when I've been watching the in built Freeview, never when I'm watching stuff via AV inputs.

Luckily for me then I only use mine for watching Sky and Xbox 360...!!!

It's up to you, but if you don't want to take it back, write to the store stating the problem, so that they know exactly when it started to occur.

Hope you were not watching stuff like your display pic...

Thanks for the replies, before this is had a Samsung and after reading reviews seems there is a common fault with them using cheap parts that end up failing after 2years, thats why i bought sony.

I like the LG's but all the LG's i've looked at dont have a headphone socket and sometimes that comes in handy.

Might give it till the weekend then see if it does it again, if it does back it goes, luckily it has the 3yrs Sont gurantee

Ha ha, nah wheeler dealers, just as well it turned off really :thumbsup:
#13
do not leave too long because the shop will take it that quick .
#14
I have seen this before happening,i think in the end they need a exorcist:w00t:
#15
Can you do a firmware upgrade ?
#16
It might be worth you looking on the w5500 thread on avforums to see if that is a regular fault with that set. I've had my Pioneer LCD do the same to me although my previous Sony LCD's never posed any problems.

Now who feels like a plum :oops:

Was trying to set up the DLNA, and while doing so saw a settings button, pressed it and eco was enabled to switch the tv off if it was idle for 3hrs :oops:

Hoping it is that :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the help :thumbsup:

Happy new year all
