Make sure that the unit is in an open space where it is free to breath. Also check that there is not a build up of dust on any outlet vents etc....

I hope this helps

    okay then the problem sounds like it could be coming from inside the system itself, like a faulty fan etc.. especially if you know that it is not overheating. Contact sony and they will probably ask you to send the unit in for repair. (if still under warranty the should replace it)

Repair tv

You didn't say anything about the model or make but a lot of times this comes from bad capacitors...try this...on the open fins on the back of the TV, try putting a blow comb on there and set it on low and leave it there for about 3 minutes, turn the set on and see if it comes right on, if it does there are bad caps on the power board, it could be replaced or you could repair it yourself for a couple dollars

I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 that will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. After that is only ambient air temps. It is a 5.7 ltr, automatic with only one set of climate controls. The heater core...

you say it will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. You don't say but I assume you mean will blow cold a few min. when turned on AC max , blow hot only a few min. when turned to heater hot. Assuming thats the situation and you say AC charged and shows good on the low side -you should charge the AC to a full charge on the low side will cause problems with the AC air compressor kicking on and off. I suggest while the engine is running and turned to AC cold max watch the AC air compressor clutch to see if it does indeed kick on and off if so charge completely. As far as the heater make certain you coolant is all the way to the top and the best way to do this is when engine is completely cold remove radiator cap and fill completely and completely close cap then fill overflow container just to the cold level. That should fix your problem.

Iam switching my ps3 on and after a few minutes a message on the top right hand side say your computer is to hot please switch off for a few minutes and try again.

right. i have heard this problem a few times and quite often it can be attributed to either a blockage of the cooling fan, thus causing it to retain heat, or the cooling fan may not be functioning fully or at all. this is bad as exactly this message will appear, although the ps3's fan may take some time to get going properly if you have an older system which means that all you need to do is leave it and it may calm itslef down. otherwise there is really not much you can do other than make sure it is not covered and there is room for the air cooling intake.
