SOURCE: My Sony 55" HD keeps turning off by it self

could be the remote sencer that is in the tv or bad swithes that are leaking. I have seen this happen before the sencer is a small electronic eye that picks up the signal from your remote when you push the buttons on it. The switches im talking about are small button switches that are soldered to a board right behind where you would push the power button and chanel buttons on the set itself. I would start with the switches frist if it was me. Some times you can trace the wires on the front where the switches are and unplug that set of wires and stil use the remote to turn on the set to see if it still does the same thing. The remote sencer on some models are pluged in seperate if so then this should help you to trouable shoot this problem.

Why playstation 3 turn on and after few seconds.. turn off!!?

Turn off PS3 only by controller. The green LED on the console will turn Red. If you want to power off totally, use the physical switch at the rear of the console.

My phone is automatically switch off

Talking on the phone with a bluetooth headset and self-rebooted.
Playing abduction and crashed. Self-reboot constantly at the X screen
Took battery out for 15 second, and tried again, same thing.
Did it a second time to fix it.
- reading and crashed. Self-reboot constantly at the X screen
Took battery out for 15 second, and tried again, same thing.
Did it a second time to fix it.
Did a factory reset to see if it helps.
During market downloads of apps, crashed again and rebooted

Phone used edge more than 3g lately in the past few days.
After factory reset, using 3g again.

Had the phone for 3 weeks, so the tech support guy said I can only get it repaired or replaced by a refurb unit...Sounds like a bad deal to me...
and to make it even worst, I bought the google dev g1 a few months ago before this...$1k down the drain...

Hi my name is Juan and unfortunately your ps3 is dead what happen is that for some reason it got so hot and the processor stop working when you turn on the ps3 it does a self test and if something is not working right it turns off immediately with a green yellow red light so don't spend your money in another power supply I can guaranty to you is not the power supply I do sell and fix playstations and this is why I know this this problem is common on the 60Gb and 80Gb also in 40Gb but not like on the 60and 80Gb
