Haven't used our TV in six mos. It turned on OK but five minutes later turned off; but five minutes later turned on again but then turns off five minutes later. What to do? New TV or let it warm up?


Check all the connections of the flat cables inside the TV. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

How do I unstop my dishwasher?


Turn the breaker off for five minutes and the turn back on. Start the dishwasher and see if it will drain. Sometimes power bumps can mess with the control board. Otherwise it could be the control board or the pump.

Turns off suddenly


Laptop turns off suddenly? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed.

Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

I was connected to internet and suddenly my laptop turned off


Your processor fan is most likely failing. Try cracking it open and cleaning the fan with canned air. Also, reseat the fan's connector cable.

Attempting to load but suddenly shut off..


It sounds like the laptop was in a screen off state (happens when it is left on but not used for a while).  When you pushed the power button it went to shutdown, and notified you that someone (you) is still logged on.  Any unsaved work could be lost, hence the warning.  
Five minutes later when you went to switch it back on, the laptop coincidently must be low on battery, to the point where it will not stay on, and exhibits the problem you are experiencing now.  Try plugging in to power and make sure that the battery is charging, and try again.
