Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

Keep Your Electronics Cool this Summer

Don't stack electronics. Your electronics conduct enough heat individually. If you have your gaming console on top of your DVD player, and your DVR on top of that, you should definitely split them up.
Keep vents clear. Almost every electronic device has one or more vents to control it’s temperature. Make it a point to look around your house for any loose items that may be obstructing the airflow around your electronic devices.
Position electronics away from heat. Use common sense when storing your electronics. Keep them out of direct sunlight, and if it’s possible, place them in the path of a fan or air conditioner. Hot air rises, so store things on the basement or ground level of your home.

How much time one should spend in playing video game? http://wordswithfriends.net/

That answer really depends on the individual player, but overall you should not play any kind of game on electronic devices for prolonged periods, because it can cause poor vision or even migraines.

nintendo wii console overheats when playing and the fan is not working

Yeah for sure you aren't going to want to use it until the cooling fan is operational, you're lucky that you didn't kill it altogether. Try unplugging the fan wire, cleaning the metal contacts, and plugging it back in. If that doesn't do it, replace it. If you can't buy aftermarket cooling fans, try looking for wii parts on ebay. Aside from that, do all you can to keep it cool..... don't stack it in-between other warm electronic components (tv, dvd player, etc.), don't place it on a carpeted floor (the carpet will insulate the heat and keep it warm), etc.

Auto shut down of unit

the audio amps may be overheating and shutting down. a lot of electronic devices don't receive heat sink compound when being assembled and the heat doesn't transfer as it should. Try cooling the unit either in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or placing it in a cool airstream directed at the rear of the unit. If it's in a stack of other electronic devices, place something between the units to allow air to circulate. I hot-melt glue tinkertoy wheels to the bottom of the units myself to separate them.
