Power keeps cutting off

I turn it on, it works fine for a few minutes and then it just shuts off on me. Only after resetting the plug a few times does start up again. But then the same thing happens after a few minutes even if no programs are running. I think its a power supply problem but I'm not sure. hope you can help

Our fix for this was as simple as cleaning a 'hair ball' off of the filter screen at the fan intake on the rear of the compute base. Once the internal components could 'breathe', the problem went away!

You need to check your fan at the processor, and make sure it's working.
also , make sure you have plenty of air circulating inside the tower, something is overheating.
either your processor or a hard drive is over heating.

Microwave would cut off after a few minutes and then turn back on but now there is no power at all.


There are few reasons for this fault, but the main is that you need to open your microwave oven and first check the Fan which is connected at the back which cools the magnetron.
If this fan fails thus results in magnetron being overheated and the thermal cutoff gets open circiut and shuts down whole power of your microwave oven.
Check your fan motor test it straight with direct power
Also check the thermal cutoff.

Let me know after you have done those checkups

When i plug my dvd writer to the power supply it keeps causing my computer to shut down and start back up then shut down again


It has gone faulty and is causing a power overload and this causes the PC to shut down, so it will not be damaged. Either the power supply Inside the DVD is faulty or the DVD, is.

PC shuts down. When you turn on the pc it shuts


try to change the source, that should solve the problem. But before try reset CMOS. (if you don`t know how to do it by jumper simple remove the battery from the mainboard for 5 minutes and then plug it back on..and after that turn on your computer and press F1 for default settings)

Pot keeps shutting off after coffee completely brewed.


This may be an electrical issue, but I would try holding in the on/off button for a few seconds and see if it still displays 2 hrs as the auto-off time. If 2 hrs does display correctly, unplug the unit for 16 minutes or longer - do not plug it back in a single second shy of 16 minutes. Then reset the clock and reprogram the auto-off Try one more time.

If that fails, it may be replacement time.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!
