Very likely the thermo sensor right above the bulb. If this EVER over heats you need to replace it (only $15)...You need to be able to locate it because it's very small but directly above the bulb housing itself :)

Please rate if this helped :)

Can the ribbon on the panel short out on the Sony bravia

Yes, as a matter of fact the Sony brava lcd tvs are known to have a problem where the ribbon cables separate from the panel and cause lines to show up on the screen. Not worth trying to repair as the only way to repair it is replace the panel and that cost as much as a brand new tv

Cannot play this disc

As long as you are sure about using DVD-R which is the most common then i can only assume it did not finalize the disc.

Our sony brava 52inch flat screen tv 2007 model has a red 4 inch vertical line on the left side of the tv what is the cause?

This is an internal problem with the screen itself, caused either by the connector from the "Inverter" board to the screen or as in most cases a problem within the internal workings of the screen. In most cases the only cure is to have the screen replaced which can be very costly. As it is 3 years old it is probably just outwith the manufacturers warranty for the screen & therefore would not cover the cost of a replacement. Nowadays it is can be more economical to buy a new TV altogether I'm afraid.

Sony Cybershot DSC-H2 Blurred image

Something in the lens unit is broken. The unit can't be fixed but needs to be replaced with a new or unit unit. A new lens unit would cost about half the price of the camera though...

Sony sdm-hs75p runs for 5 odd minutes then screen goes blank?

h_e_l_l_f_i_, Have you performed the flashlight test after the screen goes "BLANK" ?? No!! You will not find the "flashlight" test listed in the OWNERS manual!! The test is a quick evaluation of the STATE of the units "switch-mode-power-supply". Did you repair the power supply to get online to fixya? The more info you tell me about your LCD monitor the better I can assist you. Is the unit really "BLANK" or is it just "BLACK"?? Can you SEE the WIN-desktop when a bright "flashlight" is held 1" from the screen at different angles? If you can see a faint image being displayed it means the SMPS is in partial shutdown and still powering the VGA to LCD interface board. If unit is both BLACK and BLANK, then SMPS is likely in full shutdown mode! I will assume that when you stated "runs" for 5 minutes, that it would display normal text and graphics as usual and NOT be wearing a pair of NIKE's runners footwear? Yes! From your description it would lead me to think that your SONY has a SMPS/INVERTER problem. You failed to state the age and or approximate TOTAL "ON" hours the unit has. (hrs/day x 350days x Years since DOM). It makes a difference in whether I tell you to trade up to a wide screen or have it repaired(refurbished with new SMPS/INVERTER or just rehab the SMPS on your own. hellfi, surely, after reading this you WILL go to YOUTUBE, (just fyi) and view some of the longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and typical "LCD monitor repair"!! You WILL be impressed at how much you will learn about how "the black screen of death" is dealt with. If this response helps in any way, please rate it on fixya. 12fixlouie lmistyrel @ Get back to me if further assistance is required asap!!!

Oil warning light on a brava car wont go off

Best would be is to measure the oil pressure out put.
Sometimes the oil filter could be the culprit.
Was the oil warning light staying 'on; prior to the oil and filter change?..If not thn the first thing to check is to replace the oil filter ..its better to install the 'original' one .
Hope this helps!

ruth_coleman, Only a guess but I would say that the "switch-mode-power-supply" or "backlight inverter power supply" has a problem. Is screen always BLACK? how old is unit? How many "ON" hours on this unit? Is unit new? Out of warranty? Did it ever display a PERFECT IMAGE on it? When? Did it always HUMM?? FYI check out VIDEO clips of LCD monitor disassembly and repair on YOUTUBE to find out what is inside a typical LCD display. You will have a better handle on what to do about getting it repaired or to trade in for new. Yes, monitors can be REFURBISHED with new SMPS/Inverter boards for $50-$100. Check out some ADs here on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or please rate this response and get back to me if you need further assistance. Bye for now.
