Sony KDS60A2000 shuts off after about being on for 10 minutes, gives a warning set will turn off as it is overheating. Vacummed around the vents and that hasn't made any difference.

Check all the fans and make sure they are clean and not plugged up w/dust.also check how many times the red light flashes on the front of the tv after shutting down.4 flashes indicates a bad fan.

Why is my ps4 shutting off itself after 5/10 minutes of playing?


If the light is any color besides white, Sony offers a collection of fixes for this PS4 problem, including an option to get a replacement if none of them work. From what we can tell this issue is mostly past, but if you have this problem you should.
  • Check the HDMI cable
  • Check the hard drive
  • Make sure the PS4 is ventilated - Blow out your vents with a can of compressed air.

Hi,
It's possible that this problem is caused by overheating. There is a "Warning Temp" LED which should light if this is the case.

The following steps may help.
1) Ensure that there is ample ventilation around the projector, ie air vents are not blocked by walls, or have other heat sources nearby.
2) Ensure that the room temprature an humidity are not excessive.
3) Clean the air filters. Turn off the projector and disconnect the power. Turn over the projector and remove the air filter by pulling the latch upwards. It is located behind the leg nearest the lens side)/ Clean the air filter with a brush or wash out particles (it must be dry before reinserting). Replace the air filter, making sure it is fully reinserted. Clean the air intake vents (there are two of them near the air filter on the underside, nearer the back of the unit).

If the problem is caused by overheating these steps should help.

LAPTOP JUST SHUTS OFF AFTER VARIOUS PERIODS OF TIME. NO WARNING AT ALL. DOESN'T SEE LIKE A BATTERY BEING LOW AS THERE IS NO WARNING AND UNIT PLUGGED IN TO AC


It probably is overheating, and is shutting itself down, to avoid PERMANENT damage.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give the computer a "blow-job" -- shooting compressed air everywhere into the vents, to remove a layer of dust, that has been acting as insulation, causing your computer to overheat.

The most common problem you get with a laptop is overheating, this can cause for it to shut down while operating to prevent more damage.

You will know if your laptop is overheating if it happens one ore more of the following:
-The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
-The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
-The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
-The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).
Follow this steps to avoid overheating:
-Don't use your laptop in full sunlight for extended periods
-Don't leave the laptop in a closed car on a sunny day
-Don't place the laptop on or near extreme heat sources, such as radiators, hot air vents
-Turn off your laptop before putting it in your carry bag
-Turn off your laptop when not in use for a long period
-Work on an even surface as much as possible, not on your lap!
-Clean the air vents in your laptop regularly by using a can of compressed air
-Get more space under your computer by propping it up on something when it's on a desk
-Consider purchasing a laptop cooling pad
-Consider purchasing an external fan

To clean your laptop's cooling system:
-Shut down the laptop ie do not leave it suspended, sleeping or hibernating.
-Unplug all cables from the unit and remove the battery pack
-Get a can of compressed air and blow it into all vents around your computer - this should clear out any dust and hair.
-Do Not use a vacuum cleaner.

If it is not overheating, then it is a hardware failure. Could be the RAM memory, or the motherboard. You can only corner the problem by testing with different RAM modules or motherboard.

After 10 minutes of being on, it turns off without warning, I've just cleaned the fan and it still turns off after being on for around 10 minutes


sounds like it is overheating. put it on a hard surface like a counter top and see if it does it again. if it works beter there, then you may need to buy a cooler for laptops. you could also have the Processor (CPU) going bad

My Gateway laptop shuts off after five minutes. I


Hi there.
There is probably dust trapped in the air vents and around the CPU fan, the best way to clear it is to turn the machine off, get a can of compressed air and give short blast through the air vents.
The CPU fan is usually located under the laptop and give a couple of blasts through that too.
Once your happy that all the dust is removed you can turn the laptop on again and it should stay on for much longer.
The cooling pad won't make any difference if the issue is dust.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Sony TV works briefly then turns off by itself makes a click


It's serviceable, and will need service on either the thermistor that is turning the set off, and/or the parts of the circuit that are overheating the thermistor.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).
