M14x overheating

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Side-by-side freezer not working, fridge side is

yes, dust build-up will cause over-heating and burn-out the defroster will need to have serviced to see which control board failed for sure. Keep those vents clear....every couple of months vacuum them.

I have a HP dv4t-1100SE. Recently I changed my LCD panel as per HP advise. The notebook worked fine for 3 months. Again I have multiple problems. 1. As soon as I start my notebook screen starts...

1; Try running with no main battery first. (batteries are short lived)
2: try a new power pack.? (wall to PC)
3: ;make sure the power pack jack at PC edge when wiggled does not cause screen to drop out. (bad connection there)
4: bad LCD inverter. (if separate from main screen)
5: stuck key on keyboard.
6: As you turn it back on tap the F10 key. This will load BIOS setup utility.
Press F9 to load defaults.
Press F10 to save and exit.
7:overheating, it can do that fast if the CPU heat sing falls off.
or goes loose with no thermal compound working there,
or full of dust bunnies. the fan must blow and most cool the pc
and not have its vents blocked, clean it. is cure.

HOw does BIOS work, ? good? all sceens look ok, /?
esc key or F10 to reach bios, which every yours is.

Check for dust blocking the air vents as this will cause the TV to over heat but I would expect it to take longer than 10 seconds.

I push the on button on my DRA-685 and nothing happens .... the standby light is on ..... same thing happened 6 months ago and I took it to a local "fix-it" guy, went to pick it up and he said...

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Says it is overheated and cuts off after only a few minutes.

Have you cleaned the TV? It's recommended that every 6 months you need to clean the TV remove all the dust inside because it can block the air flow and cause the TV to overheat. Please check that first. Also check if the cooling fans are working properly.

Tv overheats in 15 mins

It initially looks like you will need to remove the back panel. Using a large can of condensed air from a place like radio shack.
Spray the air from the top downward & do not!!! use a vacuum cleaner because it causes static electricity and will fry the TV.
You can have it ready to get the dust up tho.
How close is it from the wall? Is there any "vents" nearby?

Your Problem is of overheating the unit.

Pls check the Air exhaust of the Laptop. The fan may be blocking air and may be causing the processor hot. It's better to
service the Laptop if problem still persists.

Problem connecting computer to tv

From my experience of Studios it's also a possibility that the TV is overheating. Check that any vents are not covered and that there is enough airflow around the TV. Sounds like a thermal cutout is triggering.
