    I have an older (much older!) version Mitsubishi rear projector 50" TV (model VS-585R), which was bought sometime back around 1989. It has always performed nominally, although I have had to replace the sweep board once.

    Recently I notice that it has begun to periodically turn itself off - usually after it's been on for a few hours
    already. Most of the time I can turn it back on again
    with no problem (although I did notice once when I turned
    it back on it turned itself off again immediately, within
    1 to 2 seconds). Any ideas what this could be? Would
    a faltering sweep board do this? (assuming it might be
    the same problem as before) Or is it some other electrical
    problem? This set does have an Off Timer but I always keep it off/non-operational.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

    HELP my 2 year old 65819 just turned intself off and won't turn back on. When I try, the power light comes on, you can hear a click then it turns itself off.

    When you unplug it and plug it back in, the power light flashes three times.
