Olevia television the picture goes out but the sound is still there. powered off and it come back on

I have an Olevia 237T purchased about 15months ago that the picture goes out in about 30 minutes but the sound doesn’t. If you let it play, it will come back on in 10 to 15 minutes. If you power it off and then on it will come right back on. I tried a different outlet it still did the same thing. I also unplugged it for 2 hours and it still did the same thing. Is there anything else I can try or do I need to call a repair man.

Since you can turn the TV off and on to correct the problem leans more towards the TV. Try using something else hooked up to the TV. Sometimes the cable/satellite settop box can have trouble communicating. Does the TV menu, not the DVD/settop box menu, come up when the picture goes out? This would tell us that the TV might not be the problem if it did.

One of the possible failures you are having if it is your TV, is that the backlight might be turning off. I have seen bad grounds cause this as well as needing parts for. I think you will need a repairman if this is the case.
