Whenever channels are on or he is playing component(games) it randomly shuts off..He got it last November black Friday. The screen goes pixelated and shuts off, but the light indicated its on. It does not do this when using the computer as a monitor
Is there anyway he can fix and what could be causing this?
1. Power issues; check to see if wiring is good inside socket, maybe switch plugs for some entertainment items if television is not getting enough power.
2. What sort of connection? DVI, for example, has known issues with it's "licensing" technology..ahaha, it's hard to explain, but sometimes when these ports try to talk to each other they can't decide how to do it securely so they fail unless you restart said items. The issues now are less than in the past.
3. Software issues inside the television, or other equipment connected to it.
Also, keep in mind, even if a television goes dark it may still be on and/or just in a standby mode.
