This is not a good indication. Led screens are especially sensitive to heat. You may have damaged the led panel. If so, it will have to be replaced.

    If you have to replace it, try Ebay, I have seen them there.

Kindle Support - Is there a way to adjust the colors on my Amazon Fire Kindle? When I turned it on this morning, the normally black base color was a sepia or brown color. Any ideas? Thanks, Doug

First roll down the quick menu from the top of the screen and see if the Blue Shade is on, if it is turn it off. If is is off then you can go to the settings from there and go to Accessibility at the complete bottom on the left side and from there yo can adjust Color Inversion and Color Correction. However, it sounds like the Blue Shade has been turned on.

How to fix my saab heated driver seat that gets too hot

As the heater elements get older the parts of them can break down, when this happens the overall resistance reduces so more current passes through the existing elements, causing those left to get hotter.
If left they will burn out completely, there is also a possibility they could damage the upholstery or even catch fire.

Turn on Air con. in the car when temperature really hot,can it causes cancer?

No more so than sitting in a hot car. However, it's more economical and easier on the A/C to vent the hot air out before starting. Some people are concerned about the chemicals cooked out of the plastic in the car's interior (including items stored in the car) when it gets hot; that is probably the source of this story. The answer is to open the doors or windows and vent the hot air out for a bit before getting into the car, or if you're in a hurry, start out with the windows wide open and vent fan on full for a couple of minutes before closing the windows and starting the A/C.

Your car's interior trim will last longer and you'll be more comfortable if you can park in the shade or put a shade in the sun-lit window. This will also reduce out-gassing from the plastic.

Driver window rolls down but will not roll up and motor continues to run until it gets hot and then shuts off Dealership wants to change out window motor and switch but they do work. What would cause an...

there are only 3 parts to this magic.
motor , switches and wires.
only careful voltmeter checks
find the solution.
that gets down to parts cost (guessing)
or troubleshooting at $100 hr.
its always your choice.
and #3, DIY.
you can in fact go to and read the schematics
do the tests and find the true cause.
i say switch, you can in fact jumper by pass the switch to see
if the switch is bad, or the motor.
are you posting and engine problem too.?
or the window motor gets hot.
window motor , DO infact have many failure modes. not just black and white easy (dead./good) not at all. ill not list them.
that is , the motor or the out door temperature effects the results. please say which.?

2004 Suzuki Verona driver side window rolls down and motor continues to run until it gets hot and shuts down window will not roll back up only down

only a real person repairing the car can determine what is wrong.
Guessing will be expensive.
excess friction in the system (my guess you mean the electric motor in the window overheats, does it?) or just on hot days.?/?
the motor can have shorted, Armature windings (yes, bad motor)
and can overheat, and fail. the motor can fail 5 ways or more, no point
in posting them all, but one failures cause the motor to use too much current, so the technician measures this current and if high
makes sure the guides are not sticking, in the window frames.
you have 2 choices, guess, or test. there are many tests, get the shop manual and learn them or trust your ASE to find the problem.
sometimes a bad motor damages the switch, controls from excessive heat, these are what we call cascade failures.
replacing only the obvious bad switch invites a new switch with damage. All electrical is like this. find the primary failure first.
the correct the collatral damage last. (and tight frame first)

Rear window shade wont roll back in on my 2006 Toyota Avalon

You guys do of course realize that the original poster is talking about the rear window shade assembly... not the passenger doors. Every single one of your comments is about the wrong part. The rear window shade assembly is a single unit... if the motor is no longer functioning, you will have to replace the entire thing. And they're not cheap either.

I have warped screen on my tv how can i fix it

First of all, the darker the screen, the more it attracts sunlight and heat from the sun, so get the TV away from the window and out of the direct sunlight. Also keep the screen away from heat registers. This can also serve as a problem with dlp screens.
If you are savvy enough along with some common sense and ingenuity, you can straighten your screen in a couple manners.
First very carefully remove the screen and have a prepared flat and smooth surface layered with a perfectly 3 or 4 layer-folded sheet for it with absolutely no flaws on the surface that you will be laying it down on. You now have 2 options: 1. you can take it outside on that perfect sunny 85 degree day and let it sit just long enough to get nice and toasty warm, but not melty and lie another flawlessslly folded sheet with a perfectly smooth board over it to rest in the shade with weights on top of it to press it flat again, or: 2. you can iron it out in a meticulous manner with another layered sheet over it until it is flat again. Be careful with either method though. DON'T let any part of the panel get too hot or you could make it even worse. It will take your best attention to know how much heat is needed and when to stop applying the heat. And NEVER use a heat gun or blow dryer, because the panel is too big for hot air to work in a condensed area that guns and dryers offer. Those will only cause it to warp worse. Good luck

HP Pavillion DV4000 notebook display shading

It sounds very much like an inverter issue. The inverter sits under the lcd screen in the screen plastics. It is replaceable, but obviously there is a danger the screen may get damaged.
