    Recently I have began to experience turning on my tv and it will come on, show the picture for about 2.5 seconds and turn itself off. It started about 2-3 weeks ago and would only happen periodically. But now EVERY time I turn it on, it will show an actual tv picture, then turn back off.

    I turn it back on again and then it's ok, however not only is this not right, but it may lead to some serious problems later.

    Please help!!!

    I think you need to call the Ghostbusters or an exorcist.

    I have a similar issue, but not exactly the same. (Posting my issue in another thread.) For me, it'll run for a while fine, and then all of the sudden it will shut down and reboot all on it's own. Still eager to find a solution, or at least an explanation, for this.

    Whenever Google TV does not detect any activity for a long period of time, it will automatically turn off. You can change the option by going to GTV settings>TV settings. But it won't reboot. I have noticed my previous TVs reboot. It is mostly due to overheating. Try to avoid positioning Google TV near any devices that may cause interference or produce heat.

    I gave some suggestions in post #5 in the following thread:

    http://www.googletvforum.org/forum/google-tv-help/5900-help-my-sony-nsx40-gt1-wont-turn.html

    Have you tried unplugging it for 10 minutes? If the suggestions don't work I suggest contacting Sony while your GTV is still under warranty.
