I was given this TV from a buddy because it would not power on. I replaced the 7 caps on the DM board and it powered right up. However, after about 5-10 minutes the unit shuts down and resets itself, after which I can power it right back up, but the cycle repeats. I've also noticed the TV also goes through this cycle even if I don't actually have the set powered on. Any ideas to what this could be? I do know that the caps I got from Radio Shack were 1000uF, 35v, but only rated to 85 degrees. Could this be the source of the issue? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to spend alot of money on a 6 year old TV I got for free. Thanks!

Try unplugging the control panel and see if it continues to go through reset cycles. May be a bad switch.

I'd be looking for a problem in the reset circuit. Seems like I recall one of these with a bad reset IC a few years ago.
