Does the sound stay ON the picture goes off to black?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

everything goes off after a few hours of watching as if it goes to sleep when the remote isn't used for a period of time

Peter does the set drop to standby red light lit?or does that go out altogether please?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Peter if you press the menu button of the sets own remote control during the time the set mis-behaves does the menu come up please?this is a test that will help me with diagnosis thank you

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

nope nothing,could it be a time setting if no buttons are pressed or the remote is not used

Expert:  info tech replied 2 years ago.
Peter the only option available to you at a user level now is to reboot the set, that is unplug the set (and any box you may be using)from the wall-power wait 5 mins then re-plug the set back in again (and the box) if that does not work you have a problem likely to be the main-board but could be the power-board I can help you with that assuming you think you can work on the set yourself(use small tools and maybe a meter)it may lead to replacement of either board.

Let me know if you need more info/help

A positive rating is appreciated thank you
