Hello, I have an HP SL4782N 47" LCD TV that I got secondhand. It turns on and works at first with several different inputs, although the screen intermittently flickers. I can head a high pitched sound coming from the back of the TV (not quite as high pitched as the normal high-pitched-TV sound, and more of a buzzing than a ringing). After about a minute, the display goes black. Restarting the TV fixes this at first, but then the problem occurs again, faster each time. When I leave it off for a long time, then try again, it's back to about a minute before going black. Any idea what might be wrong? Maybe it's overheating, or has a power supply issue? I'm trying to think of stuff that might go wrong with this kind of time delay.

Great, thanks for the input. I'll take the case off, run it with a fan on, and see if that works. Would overheating cause screen flickering, or might that be a separate problem?
