Question about Sony KV-36XBR400 36" TV

Same problem - tv shuts down

This started about a year ago. When it got hot it turned off. I set a fan next to it to blow air inside. This worked until recently when it started shutting down again even with the fan on. If turn it back on it will shut down after about a minute. If you keep turning it back on it will shorten to a couple seconds before it shuts down.

    Thanks palaboy for the info. I will do as you suggested and have someone come out and look at it since I don't where to test the circuits or even know what I'm looking at. It is extremely heavy (238 lbs) to take to a shop. I'm thinking of opening it up to have it ready. How does one open this up? The cabinet is part of what the tv sits on. Do you set the tv on it's face/screen and take the cabinet off? The screen is flat so I would think that's possible.

Sounds like you've got a problem alright, It's definitely heat related. I would suggest unplugging it and having it looked at by a professional.

I am an electronics tech and can tell you that you should not try to fix it yourself. There are voltages inside that tv that can literally throw you across a room and kill you instantly,

Also, I advise leaving it unplugged until it is looked at, A short can cause a fire.

My pacr10 blows air but compressor wont kick on


sounds like a blockage in the refrigerant circuit, the compressor is shutting down, protecting itself. possibly the compressor is overheating, possibly it's overcharged.

Mitsubishi TV, WD 60735; TV shuts off shortly after powering up.


It could be but a couple of other possible reasons---they had problems with this set and its brothers with caps in the main power supply puffing up and causing this "hard to turn on" issue.

A second reason is dust/dirt inside the unit.

All air is coming in via the front of the set and exits the rear--enough dust gets inside and the fans slow down or the lamp gets too hot and set shuts down---don't try this in the house: we take them with back cover off outside the building (on a ramp) and with air clean them out completely--try not to blow it inside the screen. It looks like a dust storm in most cases but can cause exactly the problem you have.

Why would my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee only blow luke-warm to cold air when the fan is on high? First the heat went on the highest setting, so i used the second highest. Then it started to coll as...


Sounds like you need a blower motor resistor located down under dash on pass side next to blower motor. This is a comon problem and I have changed many of them. thats just the fan speed problem. Ive seen the blend doors break easily on those jeeps. thats inside the heaer core box and moves the flap from hot air to cold air. If it is stuck halfway -or mostly to cold- you may only get luke warm air. If they had the heater core out-maybe they possibly broke it.

Chevy 350 runs really hot... i have an 81 cutlass with a stock chevy 350 & for some reason it bogs down like it wants to turn off & gets really hot when im parked idleing for more than 10 minutes...


there must be something restricting the water flow. i would check the houses to make sure there are no sharp turns that dont need to be there. next i would upgrade the water pump to make up for the extra hp.
flushing the block is always a good idea too when adding hp because you never know whats inthere.

Laptop shuts down


if it just shuts down suddenly without logging off and doing a normal windows shutdown, you probably have heat issues to to dust clogging your heatsink. Using an air compressor at 80 lbs (canned air won't have enough pressure), blast air into the opening/grille where hot air is exhausted from the laptop. this will likely shoot a cloud of dust out of the bottom of the laptop. Shoot air into the fan intake on the bottom of the laptop next. If the laptop still shuts down suddenly, check that the fan is actually working (feel hot air blowing?) - maybe the fan is dead.

hope this helps! Let me know.

150000 1974 national gas forced air furnance does the fan come on the same time the gas comes on. ...


not familiar with that particular model but on virtually every type and style of furnace i have worked on in the last 21 years. the fan is delayed. usually the burner lights then 3 to 5 minutes later after the heat exchanger has gotten nice and hot the fan comes on and blows nice and hot air. on old furnaces there was and is a switch usually on the upper right side of the furnace bulkhead that has a spring like device that heats up and rotates till it makes a set of contacts that turn the fan on. if it gets to hot the set of contacts breaks the power to the gas valve and shuts down the burner. as the furnace cools down on shut off there is a third set of contacts that open to turn off the fan so you don't get a draft. sometimes the stat can be wired up wrong, and it will bring the fan on right away ,and air will be cool and drafty till furnace catches up.

Vornado heater doesn't work on high setting but only at low setting


Dust on the inside of the unit can cause the overload switch to shut many vornados down. Blowing the dust out of the unit with compressed air or a blower may help.

Another problem that causes vornados to stop working (light on - no heat no fan) is when one of the bearings starts to go bad in the unit. This causes the fan to be slower and less effective and the unit’s inability to move the heat away from the thermal overload switch again causes it to shut down.

Though you could remove the front and rear bearings and try to get replacements if it's even replaceable ... Once the bearing starts to go bad there is little that can be done ... HOWEVER, here is one solution to get more life out of the unit.

First, use a blower to blow all the dust out of the unit.
Then, because it is typically the front bearing that goes bad first, lay the vornado on it’s back (so the unit would be blowing air up toward the ceiling), this will relieve the front bearing somewhat and rely more on the rear bearing which tends to last longer.

The vornados I’ve had are all thermistor units ... that is, they don’t just turn on and off when the set temp is reached but in fact slow themselves down (both heat and fan) to keep some level of air circulation in the room. This is a good thing by the way.
There are usually two toggle switches .... one is a heat switch - usually Low & High .... the other is the thermistor switch (this sometimes is labeled “fan”) - usually Auto & High.

Once the unit is on its back ... Now, change the settings as follows:
Turn the Heat switch to LOW
Turn the Fan switch to HIGH
Turn the dial (with the temperature in degrees on it) to the lowest setting - which is somewhere around 60’ish.

Now turn the unit on and it should stay working.
Three things that could cause it to turn back off ...
You turn the Fan switch back to Auto.
You turn the Heat switch back to High
You turn the temperature selection dial too high ... though, you can cautiously turn the dial up a few degrees at a time ... the unit will start shutting down again when you set the temp too high ... then just dial it back down ... unplug for a couple minutes, then turn back on.

Amber system light is on


had the same issue, we even had a personal fan blowing air behind the tv and the message always comes up right when we turn on the set and the tv turns itself off after about 30 seconds. did some research and it turns out there is no air flow problem just a faulty temperature sensor inside the set. Mitzubishi knew about this since 2006 but didn't really aknowlege it until more recently, they admitted it was a problem with the sensor and are now extending everyone's warenty by 2 extra years so if you got it with a year warenty and you bought it less than 3 years ago, call mitzubishi's 800 number and tell them the temperature sensor needs to be replaced, they'll get you in touch with the nearest service center and a service man will come out and replace the sensor at no charge for parts or labor. hope this helps
