Hello Bridget
When it switches off what happens with the light on the front of the set?does it go to standby or blink or goes out completely?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It goes out completely

Hi Bridget
If your sure theirs not a problem with the powerpoint (you should try another powerpoint to be sure)then its very likely theirs a problem with the powerboard inside the set, this will need to be examined, these sets do suffer from powerboard issues like bad capacitors.
If you\someone you know or in the family wish to do work with the set I will be happy to provide information on a do-it-yourself fix, its not everyones liking so you need to consider if you can or not.
If your not comfortable with that an engineer will charge around £100 to either repair\replace the powerboard perhaps £150 to replace.
If you need more info or think you\someone you know is capable of the work let me know, your satisfaction is my goal.
