A Dynex TV will shut off automatically if it isn't properly taken care of, or if its settings are configured to do so. Dynex provides a variety of installation and maintenance strategies designed to maximize your TV's optimal performance. The sleep timer which is one of them can be enabled manually to turn off the TV after a period of time. The liquid Crystal Display's or Plasma's exposure to liquid can also affect power supply and contribute to shut-off problems. Dynex provides a list of solutions to solve shut-off problems safely.


Sleep Timer

If your Dynex TV turns off all of a sudden, the sleep timer is probably enabled. The Sleep timer is designed to shut off the TV automatically and save power after a preset time. If you don't want to use this feature, you can disable it anytime. Pressing the "Menu" button on the remote control will bring up the TV's menu, and then selecting "Setup" will bring up a new submenu. From there, selecting "Timer," and then selecting the "Off" option will automatically disable the sleep timer. The TV will no longer turn off automatically.
