Default Power Cycle

I will try to make this short as possible. TV is a Samsung eh5300 build date of March 2014. Watching tv through Smart app and cycled off then came back on so I tried several other apps which locked up TV. I thought ok software problem and no updates but ok I have Roku no problem. Watching cable through HDMI cycled off then on which only took long enough for Samsung screen to show. Go to switch inputs to receiver to watch Roku tv cycles again. Turn CEC off and moved all components to Receiver and turned off CEC as thought software problem. Watching cable after 2.5 hours and cycled again so I would think it is not a software issue. Now what as I don't want to have to open credit card for new one as I bought this one to last at least 10 years. So far last 2 days no cycle but I know it can't fix itself. At least wife told me if it goes out and won't come on we will have to watch a smaller TV or if credit allows then 4k. So question is this a power or main board and if so would it be worth it? Beautiful Picture just cycling got me worried.

If it does go out you can get a decent 4k set for about $600. Decent not stellar. Thinking of this one for downstairs . https://www.target.com/p/tcl-55-4k-h...5/-/A-50480469

I am pretty sure I figured out problem. I moved all HDMI components to receiver and problem has not reoccurred. I believe it was the cable box with DVR.
