I can turn on the tv and it's fine for about 20 min then the screen goes black with sound. I turn it off for a minute and it's fine for another 20 min. Like it's overheating.


It might also be a bad solder connection, short of checking voltages what I have done in this type of situation is with back off use a small fairly high speed fan - a hair dryer set to cool works, to cool areas of the boards inside to localize which board is causing this, with the set in failure, got it? it goes out cool it with a handheld hair dryer with air set to cool, when you find the spot where the problem is it will either instantly come back or try to.

Do it a few times to confirm which board is bad and locate a replacement board and swap it out.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

My dryer doesn't stay lit


This could be a operating thermostat/thermister if it comes back on again and continues that cycle. If it stays off a long time then it could be the coils on the gas valve. Eric
