The power on my tv is switching off after a couple of

Customer Question

Hi, the power on my tv is switching off after a couple of minutes. I’ve tried unplugging it and leaving it for a while (all day) and I’ve checked the wire in the back and it looks fine.
JA: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?
Customer: It’s a jvc, model number LT-24C686(A). It’s just over two years old, but has only actually been used for about a year
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: yeah, everything works for the short period it stays on for. It still happens on other sources, haven’t tried other inputs, is that something different?
JA: How long has this been an issue with your LT-24C686? What happened right before this?
Customer: since Thursday night. I’m not sure tbh cause I switched the tv on, but wasn’t looking at it for a while and then it happened, I think it could have been after it updated itself or something
JA: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No thanks

Hello

Welcome

I am sorry you are having trouble here does the power-light on the front of the set change from the fully ON mode to standby? or maybe goes off altogether? or blink? when this issue happens

The standby light is not on while the tv is on, but it goes on when the tv switches itself off. I think the standby light now flashes for a bit when you first turn the tv on and im pretty sure it didn’t do that before

OK thanks for the info you have a problem with the mainboard, is there any on going warranty with the set?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
No I don’t think so

I am sorry about that but these smaller TVs are so inexpensive now at way under £200 its not really an option to repair them at this size, you would be better off replacing because repairs would equate to a new TV I am afraid, let me know what you think, sorry for the news

That’s okay, I was kind of suspecting that that might be the case. Thanks for your help
