TV randomly shuts off

So I don’t know if this is a problem with my two month old spectrum Internet and Apple TV set up or if it’s my television itself. My 10 year old Samsung plasma has started randomly turning off after I turn it on usually TV doesn’t even come on it just makes the noise like it’s coming on and shuts itself off immediately. Doesn’t happen all the time, at least once a week. Today the TV shut itself off when I was in the other room after about two hours. Anyone have any input on this? Thanks!

    Hello Mazel.

    I had a Vizio TV that started doing that last year. I would have to conclude since it is physically shutting down that it would be the TV set, not the Internet connection or the Apple TV. I don think that either of those devices could cause the TV to turn off. I would check with Samsung.

    Samsung wanted me to update my TV I told him that the TV is 11 years old and I can’t do that. Or unplug and plug back in which I already did and it started happening again a week later anyway. Yes I have to also think this is something with the TV. Just very odd that it started happening after we got the spectrum installation So I guess it’s not just Samsung. I was thinking about getting a Sony next time. Thanks🙂
