Hi this could be 3 problems ? no spark so vapour not igniting so excess vapour coming out as smoke, if it ignites stays on for a while goes out the flame probe is faulty, fuel filter is blocked needs new one , the fuel pipe going into tank has a non return vavle in it ( its a plastic ball in line with pipe ) if this is missing or stuck it allows fuel to drain back into tank and causes a air lock in heater causing vapour into chamber result in smoke coming out of end, as a quick fix for that you can fill pipe with fuel bend it so its traps in fuel like fire place pipe in tank when stopping fire stick mole gripps on pipe so next time fuel is there ready

After running for a few minutes the picture abruptly shuts off and turns back on for a few minutes then shuts off. This cycle repeats itself over and over.


Make sure the top and back of it are not dirty or obstructed, it sounds like it is overheating and shutting down to protect itself. Or your main power board is going out.

Vehicle starts runs for 1-2 minutes then quits, Starts right up. Fuel is being shut down.


Also what no one is mentioning is to make sure you have oil pressure, or that the oil pressure sensor is working, alot of newer vehicles run the fuel pumps off of them oil pressure sensor so if your vehicle stops pumping oil and lubricating, it shuts the fuel pump off to protect itself from damage or further damage

Flat panel TV comes on by it's self


It sounds that the voltage output from its internal power regulator board is not proper. Check it.

My dryer starts, runs a few minutes, doesn't heat up and shuts itself off


check your sensors on the heater unit, there are two or more, simply us a meter and make sure power is on both sides of the sensor, if not then that specific sensor is bad and you should replace it, pull the sensor and tie the two wire together to see if it will heat, if it does replace the sensor they are cheap and will keep you from burning down the house

My daughter's sony PCG-FR130 laptop has a problem whereby it simply turns itself off. After having been off for a few days, it will run ok for up to 15 minutes but then if you start it back up it may only...


It is possible that your daughters laptop has a clogged air intake port or dust build-up on the heat sink which cools the processor. With the laptop unplugged and with the battery out, take a soft Bristol brush to the vent ports on the laptop then take your vacuum with the brush attachment and place over the vent while moving slightly. If this does not help then you will need to have your laptop professionally cleaned by a local dealer.

The car runs great but when I shut off the engine the fan continues to run. How can I get it to shut off?


The fan is controlled by a thermostat, it will (should) shut off by itself after a few minutes, after the engine has cooled down a bit.

If it continues to run after about ten or fifteen minutes (i.e., it does not shut off at all, and will run the battery down if you leave it overnight), then most likely the fan relay is sticking on, and should be replaced. Less likely is that the fan thermostat is bad.

But if it turns off by itself after about five minutes, this is normal and desirable, it gets some of the excess heat out of the engine.
