Microwave would cut off after a few minutes and then turn back on but now there is no power at all.

There are few reasons for this fault, but the main is that you need to open your microwave oven and first check the Fan which is connected at the back which cools the magnetron.
If this fan fails thus results in magnetron being overheated and the thermal cutoff gets open circiut and shuts down whole power of your microwave oven.
Check your fan motor test it straight with direct power
Also check the thermal cutoff.

Let me know after you have done those checkups

When ever i try to play ps3 games on the mitsubishi hdtv 1080, the screen cuts to black with green hatchmarks. The PS3 home screen displays but as soon as i enter the game mode the screen goes black

Good day!

That is usually happens when the TV is not compatible to the PS3 because the graphics of the PS3 is very resolution.

The qualification standards of that TV is not reaching the higher resolution of PS3 even your TV is HDTV.

Thank you very much for using fixYa.

Movies will play, games will load the intro screen with music and still pic(such as madden 11) but when you choose to play, the screen goes black...why?

Hey there,

No promises this will work, but you can give this a try. Hold the power button on your PS3 until you hear it beep twice. This will bring you to Restore Mode. From here you will want to set it to Restore Default Settings. This will keep all your PS3 Data in-tact but restore the video, sound, and system settings to default.

It could just be that you set the Video Settings of your PS3 to 1080p when your TV can only handle 1080i.

Problem code E 68 red light comes on the 360 tv screen goes black.

This could be an hard drive error, try taking it off and playing a game without it, if this works try playing with it on again, or it could be an eeprom error, this is caused by not enough power getting to the console, if you have any extra fans or plug and play, remove them and have another try.
Thumbs up if this helps.

Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 32" TV problem

This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

After playing for a while, the game 'freezes' (though the music does not).

It doesn't sound like something that can happen - the graphics card dying..... It just doesn't sound possible.. the only thing I can think of, if that were the case, would be if you removed the heatsink while modchipping your machine, and it gets too hot... if that's the case, you may want to get some thermal paste and put some inbetween the graphics chipset and heatsink.... It sounds to me like the game may be a dud... or perhaps, have you checked the FAN? If for some reason it doesn't spin, it could be overheating...? In my opinion, I don't think it's possible for a graphics card to die... overheat, yes.. but die through depreciation is a new one.. it has no fan, so it is pretty much near a 0.0000001% chance of that actually happening.... The fact that the disc is still spinning would imply that the game is still reading... so, perhaps, the part of your VGA Output on the GameCube could have issues regarding OUTPUT OF VIDEO... loose wire that rattles perhaps, that needs refitting somewhere..? It honestly sounds like OVERHEATING FREEZING to me... CHECK THE THERMAL PASTE STORY.. AND THE FAN STORY... It's a classic case of overheating in my opinion.. I've seen it happen to my computer.. All I have to do is leave my case panel off, as it gets hot , and the exact same symptoms show up... And in the worst case, it could be an issue of unplugging and replugging cables. Hope that helps..
