Tv power

TV will lose power and then the power will come back on. It looks like only the TV circuit because the lights, microwave etc. Will stay on. This will happen even when we are connected to 50amp shore power. Any suggestion?


Some times it won't happen for two or three weeks, some times a couple time in one evening.

This sounds like a loose connection in one of your daisy chained outlet boxes. This is a VERY dangerous condition and needs to be checked out by an electrician or at least someone knowledgeable in AC circuits.

I had this happen one time with a television in my home and it turned out to be a circuit board problem. I researched the make and model on line and found others had experienced the same problem. Worth a look.

You are right.
It IS possible it is a TV only problem.
What threw me was the "lights" and microwave comment.
That made me assume it was the "entertainment" circuit of outlets.

The OP needs to clarify this.

All the other electrical items in the coach remain on and working, only the entertainment center goes out and appears to happen randomly.

I suspect power surges...

We remove the 32" Legend flat screen from our rig when we're at home and use it here in the house.

I have noticed that it is extremely sensitive to the frequent power surges we experience during thunderstorm activity. Even though our house circuitry is surge-protected, the TV will cut out even though the surge seems to be too insignificant to trigger the large unit protecting the house.

Have you tried a small surge-protector at the outlet?

Plug in a small light in the same outlet your TV is plugged into and see if it flickers when the TV cuts in and out. If only the TV is effected it is a TV problem. If the night light flickers too it is a wiring problem.
