My Black and Decker Iron is not quiet 2 yrs old and it will heat up but as I iron it turns off. I can shake the iron and get it to come back on but it does not stay on long enough for me to get anything ironed. Any suggestions?

This is a fault solution
which can be checked and corrected by you assuming that there is no component
failure. There is a high possibility that the components over a period of
heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice
is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these
erratic shut downs or poor performance. The best way to check for loose
connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on, if there is change
while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug,
the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, and use a good
soldering iron to solder all suspected points. Sometimes the fault occurs when
the set warms up; if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the
suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller,
driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray
can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault. It can also be
related to WEAK ELECTROLYTIC capacitors as the value can reduce in time.
I took my soldering iron and melted nylon-plastic to the plastic (nylon) ears and plastic button which is also nylon. I now have a permanent and stronger plastic weld than what was made at the factory. Repair shop wanted $125 dollars. I fixed it with weed-eater nylon string and soldering iron. Start at button first, after having a small glob of melted nylon on tip of iron. Then spread it to plastic ears, all the way back to the spot where ears attach to black trim piece. Good luck
i can't tell you where to get the parts but i can help with the soldering information.
use 60/40 resin core solder
a 20 watt iron
to prevent over heating, you can try a desoldering iron or a special blower desolder gun. you can try adding extra solder to the part before trying to use a desoldering iron, this will help the desoldering iron **** out the old solder easier.
Hay I don't know if I would nesaceralyrecomend my quick fix, but it worked for me so far (only day 2... ). I found a 12v 1.5 amp converter like was suggested @ this site, I had to modify the end to fit the moniter (thats waht I wouldn't suggest , unless you know what your doing of corse.) I'm sure that you can buy one that wouldn't need adjusting, but if your as broke as me or tight with your cash go thorugh any old cords and see if you have "parts" you can use, be caarfull, and good luck.
this is most likely the capacitors on the power board in the monitor, if your comfortable wkith opening it, and good with a soldering iron, etc
then you can most likely fix it, just look at the CAPs and you'll probably see them fat! or some gew on the top of them!!
Capacitors on the power board inside the lcd monitor have blown they can be replaced with new ones and the monitor should return to normal operation. service center or if you feel capable you can do it your self with a soldering iron and the correct caps that have blown you need voltage and micro faradays usually 25 v at 470 mfd (u)however monitors use different kinds and voltages can be different it will be marked on the side of the damaged capacitors. l8r
