Sounds like you have dust and dirt blocking your air flow. You probably need to take the laptop apart to get to the CPU fan and heat dissipation unit. You need to clean out all the dust in there to let the air flow freely. Get a service manual to help you take the laptop apart or find a local repair expert.
IS it getting hot. Check the fans. It'll shut down if the fans aren't running and everything gets to hot. You might be able to use compressed air and blow out your vents and fan blades. Dust builds up and limits air flow causing extra heat, and then shut down. IF your running your laptop on your lap, make sure your not covering any vents or air flow. Its easy to do and not realize it.
In the 65" TVS there are 4 or more fans One of these is not functioning Probably the one over the power supply itself This will cause it to heat very quickly and shut down in a matter of about 20 seconds.
only way to find out which fan is not working isw to remove the back.
Have you cleaned the TV? It's recommended that every 6 months you need to clean the TV remove all the dust inside because it can block the air flow and cause the TV to overheat. Please check that first. Also check if the cooling fans are working properly.
They had some stupid problems with these sets---If you know how to remove the lamp---it is customer replaceable--take it out and examine it. Shut set off first and wait a few minutes for the lamp fan to turn off. Unplug set and locate and remove lamp. Some of these sets had a lamp (it is in a cartridge like a box) that they covered openings on the housing with a screen like material (like window screen). One side of the lamp has a fairly small narrow strip of this and it blocks up with dust from the fan which is trying to keep it cool---if the screen is blocked up you will see it; Do not touch the face of the lamp when you handle it--if you find yours has a screen like material--clean it off with a brush and put it back--the later replacement version of this lamp has a screen that is coarse and does not block up with dust---on a couple of these I removed the blocked up screen material until I could get the newer lamp so the customer could continue to use it--if cleaning the dirt off works you may have to do it from time to time--depends on environment--the fan tends to pull dust and such out of the air and right into the lamp---

It's probable that the inside of your Tv might be dusty, first of all i recommned you open the back of the TV and with a can of air (the one you can use to clean a computer) take off all the dust possible because the dust bunnies might be in the way, not letting the tv ventilate, if that does not work it might be that you have a defective fan which needs to be replaced
As a temporary measure, taking the side panel off the dell 5150c stopped it from shutting down, so in my case it was clearly a heat problem, as suggested by previous the poster. The following instructions assume you're comfortable replacing computer hardware components - do at your own risk!
The solution is to buy an 'air duster' and some thermal compound for the CPU heat sink. If your CPU fan doesn't sound healthy (mine didn't), also buy a new one (ca. £20 on ebay: search for G9474 ).
Read the service manual: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150C/en/sm/index.htm for details on how to install / remove the fan and heat sink.
Clean out dust from the heat sink with air duster. Remove the fan, and clean or replace (recommended). Also clean the grill in front of the fan. Clean off old thermal compound from the CPU / heat sink and replace with a thin layer of fresh compound. Replace heat sink and side panel and you're done.
Hello!! It might be either that the tv is overheating because of the lack of air, or it may also be your ballast.
First of all I recommend you clean the fans, so the air flow won't be blocked, don't use something that mioght damage some of the boards that are inside, you can buy one of those air cans to clean computers, if that does not work, I recommend you listen closely and notice if there's a clicking sound, if so it might be the ballast.
