    Hi, I have an 8 year old Sony KVX2982U TV which has given us fault free viewing. It now has started to switch off after few minutes. If you switch it on again it turns off after few minutes again. I am aware that there is some component overheating/shortening and the TV protection cirvuit switches it off before overheating. Can anyone tell me what the problem is and a rough idea of repairing. Would be shame to scrap it. Thanks

    Impossible to say without examining the set.............could be a multitude of things...........failed component.........a dry joint....take your pick.
    Modern sets aren't really repairable by a D-I-Y'er.
    Best to get a reputable technician to take a look and ask for an estimate.
