my celcus tv repeatedly turns itself off after anout 15 minutes, iv tried the remotes batteries and the plug and it crill does it, i dont know what else to do

Found 5th Jan 2017
I need advice on what else i can do


Check in settings as it may have an eco setting which turns the set off after a set may be set to switch off after 15mins

Have you checked the standby timer / sleep settings ?

My nan used to hit the side of her TV with her slipper and shout obscenities when I was a kid. That used to fix it.

Don't laugh, but do you have a budgie?

Its the settings oO Read your manual and it will tell you the standby settings ( eg "go to standby after 15/30/45/60 mins of inactivity) (ie if no button pressed on RC) If you just switch the tele on and do the rest via your Sky box it will always do this . Adjust the eco mode settings on the tele (I have mine set to 4 hours) or push any button on the RC every 15 minutes (I have to do it every 4 hours ) . Certainly nothing to do with the plug or the RC Batteries

That was when RCs worked on sound -I think they are all infra red these days .

only watch it for 10 minutes at a time. I think that should fix it oO ...

Buy cheap, buy twice.

Better hope it dont get stuck on UK gold as well. And thats sainsburys for you.

Your best bet, after checking the sleep settings, is to contact Celcus. It could be a bad /missing software update amongst many other options.

One question - once the TV powers off can it be instantly powered back on or is there a delay before it will power back on?

I just remembered my Samsung does this if my monster power unit needs switching off and on again.. I don't know why.. it's only done it twice but I was just glad it was not my TV at fault. So if you're using an extension or surge protection check / test / reset it.. that may fix it.

Could be a dry joint or IC. As the TV warms up the internals expand and tv turns off.
