Won't turn off/on

I'm not sure what exactly happened to it - i turned it off, and set it down, 30 minutes later I went to turn it on, and the screen did not light up, though the blue light on the "dial" did. It will not turn off, nor relight the screen. No music is playing, and I'm not sure what happened ._. Help? Oh, and btw, the HOLD button IS off :3

Press and hold the power or menu button for around 30-45 seconds then wait for a few seconds before turning on the player.

When I turn on the tv it automatically turns off itself

Back again. It appears that the key is the order in which you connect things and switch the TV on or off. It took some experimenting to get to what's reliable. I'll spare you the details and confine myself to what works.
1. Start with the monitor cable disconnected at the laptop.
2. Turn on the TV with the source set to your regular satellite (or cable) signal.
3. With the laptop on, plug the monitor cable into it.
4. Switch the source (at the TV) to receive the VGA signal (from the laptop).
To turn off, reverse the procedure.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Breadmaker Won't Start

I had the same problem. Check the delay start button even though it doesn't tell you to. To get my machine to work the first time I used Menu #3 (which does not have a delay start) and it worked. Then I tried to use the dough cycle and it wouldn't go either, so I unplugged the machine, plugged it back in, went to Menu # 3 first to see the time (which was 1:50) then I checked the delay time to make sure it was also set at 1:50. Mine was not (it said 2:00) so I moved it down to 1:50 and it started 15 minutes later. I really don't like this 15 minute delay on this machine. I am going to try regular bread later and I will make sure that the delay time is the same as the time given for completing the loaf ( ie make sure it says 3:30 NOT 13:30. I hope this works.
