Well, obviously repair cost will depend on what is wrong with it - could range from about $60-70 minimum to maybe $100-250 depending on locale - and that would be for something very simple like a loose board or cable connection. Then can go up from there - commonly $300-600 for a TV repair these days and several articles have said averaging about $500, so in many cases makes more sense to replace it and get a new warranty for a year or so.

Here is a previous similar question which addresses that issue:

First thing I would chack on your end - that the plug is securely in the wall, and try loosening a bit then regithening all the antenna/video box cables - could just be a loose connection there.

If it sounds like it is turning on then turning back off by itself, is probably tripping out a thermal reset or breaker - which could be due to a short circuit somewhere or an overheating power supply - but would have to be opened up to determine that, which means either a house call (tyhpically about $100 minimum) or getting the TV to the shop undamaged and paying that minimum service charge to get it diagnosed - then decide whether the repair is worth the cost.

I would also google for recalls or product defect complaints on your make and model - a LOT of recalls these days on TV's, and even if not under warrnaty or recalled some of the manufacturers with a lot of defective products (LG and Phillips and Sony are three that come to mind) are paying for some repairs or giving a manufaacturer's credit on a new one even if the appliance is out of warranty, to try to keep the extent of the defects quiet, so might not hurt (if there are a lot of web ccomments about similar problems) calling the manufacturer and seeing what kind of attention a squeeky wheel gets.

Here are a couple of links with some typical repair cost info that I came across FYI -
