The vocal cuts out completely from time to time. Comes back after a while but keeps cutting out at intervals. Have two of these and both do it. Is it my set up, is it overload in some way. Guitar ok. Use...

The amp or pre-amp for the vocals built into the unit is failing when it gets warm. This is a common problem with electronics, that when it cools down cures itself until it warms up again a few seconds later.
The units need repair or replacement.

LG microwave intermittently runs

I would try troubleshooting the "defrost circuit". The behavior sounds like the microwave is cooking in the defrost mode, where it actively cooks then stops allowing the food to rotate and the heat to spread then actively cooking again.

I have a 96 cadillacsls that is over heating- no leaks but it is pouring out the over flow tube?

Did you over heat warning message come on " Urgent shut off engine" or check coolant message? My coolant message came on but once car warmed up, it was late summer. No leakage but coolant level was low; added some coolant. Then it happened again but once car warmed up the check message disappeared. Then a few days later I got the Urgent Shut off Engine message! Thankfully I was able to pull off road and shut down immediately. Had it towed to Caddy shop. My water pump had gone out. New Pump and replaced all hoses. Then a year later check coolant light came on again, once car warmed up, light went off. This time tho a small leak in the radiator. My husbank put in a new radiator. Car has 117K miles and a few weeks ago outside temp 35, running late for work and didn't allow car to warm up but just a minute or two and when I puled away the check coolant light came on; but once the car warmed up (temp gauge needle in center) the light went out. Being the car is 17 years old I try to treat her like a baby and not push her so I do let the engine warm up before driving away. Do you have to add oil between oil changes? This is normal for the Northstar engine; your regular garages or full service stations don't know this; also make sure if you aren't using an authorized Cadillac garage that they put the right amount of oil; they want to put less than what is required. Not sure if this is really a solution more comments than anything... :)

I have a pioneer sc-07 and a motorola (Comcast cable) hd cable receiver. at times the picture disappears but the audio remains...a short time later the picture returns... why???

If you are using HDMI, you need to switch to Component or connect the HDMI directly to the TV and use your receiver for audio only via optical or digital coaxial. Your receiver uses either version 1.1 or 1.2 HDMI firmware and is not capable of updating itself for new Video Codecs.

I have a Frigidaire gas dryer and it ingites and works but with in a minutes the gas is cut off and never ingites back.

On your gas valve , there are 2 coils . Replace both as they come together . When they get warm due to electricity going thru them , one of them will open ( short ) and not let gas come thru until it's cooled down . Turning the dryer back on later , it will work for a short time , then stop heating again until the dryer is cooled back down. Replaceing these coils will solve your problem .

Most common cause of the failed monitors are bad caps in the power supply, if it is about two years old, I would open it up and look for bad caps first, then look for any burnt parts, post back so we can guide you further, see failed SAMSUNG monitors due to bad caps:

Probably the monitor. LCD monitors use electrolytic capactors which change value with heat. The power board in yours probably has 6 to 8 caps whic need replacement. Take it to a reputable repair person or check out my websit.

My Camry start ok when it is cold. When I drive awhile and the engine comes up to normal temperature and I turn the car off, and come back a short time later it will not start. I have had new plugs...

First check the air filter. If it's clean you might as well go straight to the idle air control valve, and change it.
It could also be a bad engine ground connection, or your fuel filter, but i'm betting on the IAC.
