This problem is with fair certainty the power supply.
Modern power supplies are designed to shut down if the current drawn exceeds the design level which indicates that something the supply services or the supply itself has died.

If you are adventurous, you might pull the plug on the set, gain access to the innards, and with good light, inspect any boards inside. If you see one that has few ICs but many more larger discrete parts, this will be the power supply.
You are looking for components called electrolytic capacitors that are almost always cylindrical and mostly installed upright at 90 degrees to the board with leads passing through to the solder side.
This same type of component in smaller dimensions is also still used in a horizontal package with leads bent down and passing though holes to the solder side.
The latter are becoming more rare since they don't lend themselves well to robot assembly.

Many (not all) will show signs of pregnancy when they fail, bulging unnaturally when compared with others. Now and then, there may be traces of a crystalline deposit around the end where the seal failed from internal pressure.      
 
These will have values listed on them in uFd & VDC and sometimes, a plus/minus number lying about the precision.
Some also have a date code (rarer) that will look like four digits:
 
2403 = 24th week of 2003
 
Most electronics suppliers have a stock of the various values but if they have a date code at all, try to get only those made before 2002 or after 2006. The caps made between those years may be bad when new.

The larger caps will probably be OK since the failure is likely related to functions other than brute-force filtering. A pretty good 'rule of thumb' is to replace any caps you see bulging that are 100 uFd or less. If you don't mind a few nickels more, insist on 'low ESR' capacitors.
If you choose to replace these yourself, you will need a quality soldering iron with a small, preferably iron-plated tip, rosin core solder and a sponge which when wetted is used to frequently wipe oxidized solder from the tip this should be kept bright and clean and fresh tinning will keep it that way.
You should also buy some solder 'wick' with the iron; this is used to place on the solder you wish to remove and then heated with the iron. Properly used. the wick will absorb nearly all of the solder from the lands from which you wish to remove a component.  
A good source for any of these things is http://www.mouser.com/  They have a huge inventory of parts, fair prices and no minimum billing.

The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

The failure with your LCD might be due to defective capacitors in the power supply. These parts become defective due to excessive heat and fail prematurely If you are able to DIY, you can check the picture to see how defective capacitors look like.901ae86.jpg

Picture size mis too large. No matter what screen ratio or zoom setting, the picture borders are outside the screen. AkAI tech support phone # is no longer in serrvice.


Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
