    first & foremost...is it under warranty?? get it checked NOW!! that won't cost you anything!

    if not, well, you might be in a bit of a trouble. it could just be worn out...the power supply, the on & off..does it pop on & off? it may be a short in there. i wouldn't mess around with it...you don't want to cause some kind of hazard for your family over a tv. please get it looked at!

    maybe u set the sleep timer on the tv, so every 2 seconds it turns off..i think u should find a way to quickly change the sleep timer to a longer time or completely delete it

    Like the guy said, see if it's still under warranty. If not, check your manual - there may be a way to reset it.

    Your TV is broken. Buy a new one or get this one repaired.
