If the computer shuts down with no warning then it could be your power supply is faulty, which explains it not turning on sometimes. Just check the back of the PC to make sure it is plugged in properly (TURN OFF ALL POWER TO THE PC BEFORE CHECKING). if this does not help, get it looked at by your local qualified computer technician if you don't know how to replace a power supply. Also, a connection to the motherboard to the Power button may have a fault somewhere, which also means take it in for a look if you don't know what to do. If it does give you warning with 'Windows is shutting down' it can be the following things.
1- Your power button on the PC is sticky and movement causes the computer to think you have pressed it and so it shuts down, which can also explain why it wont turn on all the time. Just use some household grease cutter and spray it on the outside of the button, turn off the power supply to th computer and press it in and out a few times to get it back to working order
2- A Virus is shutting your computer down on you, but this does not fully explain why it won't turn on but this could be an effect of the virus so use a virus checker to see if this is the case
3- Your computer system is getting too hot and usually a computer has setting which shuts it down before permanent damage happens. Check your PC fans to make sure they are running and feel around where your computer sits to see if its warm or hot and replace the fans or put your PC in a cooler environment

Hope This helps

It wont stay on


Is it turning off with charger connected or without charger?
If it is turning off while charging also, Try doing a soft reset.
  1. Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
  2. Hold until the player shuts down.
  3. Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.
If this doesn't help, try repair it using Philips device manager program which came with the CD or downloadable from Philips web.

2000 jeep Cherokee sometimes runs fine shut it off wont start but turns over fine later it will start


Ok. You didn't say what size engine was in the Jeep, but based on your problem, I'd bet its the 2.5L 4 cylinder. They had a classic issue with intermittent failure of the crankshaft sensor. This will cause the vehicle to just shut down without any other indications, Sometimes it will restart immediately, sometimes it can take minutes to hours to restart. The sensor is easy to replace and not very expensive. It is located on the drivers side of the transmission bell housing.

System worked for 2 hours then shut off came back on a few times


It shuts down to protect itself from overheating, looks like you tried to use it too much without sorting the problem out.
You can try and give it a good clean out. Google cleaning computers.
I usually use a small brush, my vaccum cleaner and sometimes an air duster

Shutsoff, stays off problem...


Get the updated verison of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website, and then click on the Update button once you have installed the new Device Manager.

Several things to be wary of:
* a Philips player ending in "/02" is designed for use outside of the United States
* the SA5125 is incompatible with Windows Vista and Windows Media Player 11 without a firmware upgrade

Tv turns on but wont stay on


There is a resistor on the CRT board that goes bad sometimes. I cannot remember the number but it is a common fault as the TV starts up and then detects too much beam current and shuts back down. If you have a multimeter, you can check the resistors if you know how the color coding works on these resistors. If you do not, take the set to a repair shop, as this problem, if this is the problem, should not cost that much to replace a 10 cent resistor. Good Luck
