Default Problem with Plasma "Picture keeps going out then coming back on"

I have a 2006 Panasonic Plasma (TH-42PD50U) its a 42 inch. I keep seeing where the picture and volume will go out about 5-8 secs at times then it comes back on. I thought at first it was my DirectV doing it but it happen when I was watching a dvd on it the other day. Its been doing this off and on about 8 months now seems like before it would do this maybe once in a 10 hr period now it might do it 2 to three times in a 5 hr period. Is there something on the way going out? Is there something I can replace to fix this? How much am I looking at?


Thanks !!

Try unplugging the TV for a couple of hours and see if that resets things. Also check the air vents to see if they are getting clogged and vacuum them out as this could be heat related also.

Good luck!
