    well at first when it shut down just the red lights were blinking . which is the standy lights. when i hit the power button it attempted to turn back on then shut down. (stayed on about 2 seconds). then i took the cover off the media box. because my house is on a main streer in chicago which generates alot of dust. so i blew into the box to remove some dust( note the box has some kind of switch inside the box that i suppose is to know when the cover has been removed. like a dryer door switch) then i put the cover back on and tried it again. now the blue power light stays on red standby light stays on and orage rec timer light stays on. and the media box is non responsive what so ever. for example if you press the power button it neither turns on or off. the only way it turns off is to unplug it . normally when it turns off you here a click. when its upluged you dont here that click now and the lights stay on for about 10 seconds befor they loose power. have i anwsered your questions?

    After watching my Pioneer PDP-4340HD TV for about three hours, the TV shuts itself off. I can use the report to power it back on and continue watching immediately but this continues to happen night after night. When it first turns back on, the timer record light blinks about thirty times before going out.

The service man said that there must have been a power line voltage drop that causes the TV to shut off but I don't think this is happening night after night.

You activated the trap switch. You must now call an authorized Pioneer service center near you. They are the only people that know how to deactivate it.

    That's just it, you won't know how many times the red light was blinking for the error code unless you get the trap switch deactivated. But an authorized Pioneer service center will know all that info.

Hi. My PS3 suddenly started turning off randomly in the middle of play (grrrrrrr) but I know its not overheating since the red light didn't flash and there was beeping. It just died. No joke. Does anyone...

There could be an issue with the power cord or the power outlet.

Try to get a replacement cord and plug the PS3 into another outlet. Turn on the PS3, and let it sit on the menu screen for a while. If it does not shut down it means that it was a power issue.

While playing a game console turned off and game disc is stucked inside, turn power on and light turns green for couple seconds then flashes red and turns back off, no chance to eject game disc.

When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
Provide a proper vent for the system...
Hope this will help...

I was playing Modern Warfare 2 when suddenly the PS switched itself off and won't come back on, the disk is stuck inside it.

If the unit is blinking a red light when it turns off this is known as they yellow light of death for the ps3(ironic i know). This can be caused by the unit overheating causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Ps3 will not turn on......yellow indicator light only was playing game and suddenly the system just shut down and only a yellow line appears and ps3 will not turn on

This is coused by overheating of the console, make shure that
the hot air from in the console can get away and the console
stands completely free so that fresh air can reach the console.

60gb ps3 wont start up.

Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

HELLO. I was playing on my ps3 When suddenly it just turned it's self off in the middle of playing tekken 5 DR oline. Now when i turn my ps3 3 on it just's beep's and turn's tisefe off.....HELP ME PLEASE....

Your PS3 probably overheated during game play.

No it's stuck in the "off" position.

There's isn't much you can do besides trying to reset the video.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Hopefully you're one of the lucky ones.

If not you need to contact Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

for repair.

It's more than likely a motherboard issue.

Best of luck!

TV keeps shutting off automatically

Since your plasma is less then a year old, I would suggest to contact the manufacturers to get it fix under warranty. If the plasma keeps shutting off by itself, that is not normal and should be repair.

PS3 wont work

How long were you playing it? if you were playing for a couple of hours, then it could of just overheated, in which case the ps3 will shut itself off suddenly to keep from damaging something. It should work after about half an hour, adequate time for it to cool down, if not, then you might of damaged something.

Problem with pioneer elite pro-99

We are having the same problem of the Pioneer Elite Pro-99 turning itself off all of a sudden. The red 'non' power button comes on as if we had turned it off remotely.
We would love to resolve this. If you can help let us know.
