    Hi,
    My PW6 turns itself off after about 2 hrs or so (Not progammed to)
    Then the standby light flashes red (this is not normal).
    I can turn it back on after a few mins only by the standby button (not the remote) and its ok again for about an hour.
    I cant switch it on straight away after it has done ive tried but it just turns off imediately.
    A high pitched (but quiet) sine sweep can be heard for about 1 second when you initially turn it on (not sure if this is relevant).

    Does anyone have any idea what this might be,
    I am really confused and quite worried.

    Thanks
    Gary
    :lease:

    Do a search - this is a known problem with the power supply in your PW6, and plenty of people have had the same problem, and had it fixed.

    You need to speak to your dealer and get them to sort it.

    Couple of relevant threads here and here

    Cheers, Carl

    Does anyone happen to know how much this repair is likely to cost as i think my 12 warranty has been and passed.
    To be quite honest i didnt even take much notice of the warranty when i purchased the screen as the chap in his shop did a £2800 (inc wall mount and powered sync blaster)deal over 12 months ago (even i know that that was pretty good at the time)
    Thanks again for your input.

    Back again
    Found all the info on the screen and terminal board but no warranty note at all DOP was 6/10/03
    I would imagine i am going to have to pay.
    The guy in the shop (his shop) (Ahmed) sold me the display model and he said it was the commercial version (only BNC conectors(no problem))
    Dont mind paying as long as its not too astronomical(teach me to be a bit more concearned with the warranty and not just getting it home to watch).
