I have a Winnebago with the original 12 volt TV in it. My problem is that when I first turn on the TV it works fine and has good audio.

After 5 to 10 minutes the sound fades away in about 45 seconds to none. If it sets and apparently cools down it will have sound again for another 5 to 10 min. Anyone else have this problem and is there a fix that is not more costly than a new TV?

I had this happen to me a year ago. It turned out it was a soldering connection inside the TV. When the TV warmed up the connection was impaired then once it was cool it would work. If you know your way around controller board you may be able to fix it. Otherwise it might be time for an upgrade. <_<I went the upgrade route. I am not sure what size tv you have but I went with a 26" vizio for around $175 (This model)which i thought was pretty good.

Hope it works out for you.
