Richard, check for a chassis number on your TV. The Power LED blinks three (3) times. Set restarts automatically after 20-30 seconds. After 3rd cycle unit remains shutdown (unplugging AC resets unit). Probable Cause: 1. Failure of lamp cooling fan or DLP device cooling fan. so check on those and see what you find. Hope this helps, good luck.
