Unit shuts down while watching it. Unplug power
I have some repaired unit with the same problem as what you've encountered right now.
It is commonly caused by faulty electrolytic capacitor on the low voltage power supply, mostly on the regulator section. Leaky capacitor will affect the performance of the power supply that's why it is hart to power up.
It is not DIY and quite technical so I've advice you to look for a qualified technician or send it to repair shop to isolate the problem. This is fixable.
Thanks for using fixya.
Please rate my help.

How can I still use this TV?
find another TV, VCR (many around now), or other cable using device and exchange - 7 or so screws on back of tv come right off and expose lower interface where cable jack is. remove wires, solder salvaged unit in and it works.... Be careful when removing back of tv - you can pull other wires when doing so.

Not sure if converter box is needed???
Hello Ann, I will try to help you, well if your for sure about the Manufactur date on the T.V., then yes you will need a digital converter box, also it is suggested to have an outdoor UHF/VHF antenna with coax to attach to your converter box, the old rabbit ears aren't suggested. I hope this helps in getting you prepared for Feb. 19, 2009 when all T.V. stations broadcasting will convert to the new signal. Thank You and Have great day.
