Question about LG LHY-518 System

Unti just shuts off

I've only had this unit for 7 months but just recently it started shutting off after 3-5 minutes of it being turned on. I'm thinking it might be overheating but heck what do I know. Is this fixable by me? Thanks.

This unit is not repairable. I had the same problem with my unit. I had a certified LG repair shop look at the unit. Just to evaluate the unit was $85.00 after testing the unit they discovered parts and labor is much more than the original cost of the unit. I am furious. You can't used the speakers with any other unit. I will buy a DVD player seperate from the tuner in the future. DVD players are much cheaper and are easy to replace, but when you purchase an all in one you are trapped with an unrepairable unit. I will never buy LG again.

Why can i not cook for 20 minutes with oyster microwave it cooks about 7 minutes an shuts off then about 5 minutes later it starts up again.


The unit could be overheating and shutting down, cooling off, and restarting. Check ventilation holes on back for dust accumulation and blockage. Check that cooling fan is turning properly.

Sony Home Theatre System Turning Off


Appears that you have a bad cap in the power supply that is changing value as it heats up. Hard to find - only thing you can do is go to suspected units and replace them hoping that you got the bad one. Or just wait till it finally pops.

Samsung tv wont turn on


Check with Samsung first, most of their TVs and monitors come with a 3 year warranty and if you open the unit it will void the warranty.

Tracking issues with SONY XAV60


If you smoke or it is dusty in the car, cleaning the laser lens may help. At any rate, if you are careful, cleaning the lens won't harm anything.

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.


Marko,

I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.

What you think it means is exactly what it does mean. When a running unit is shut off it should not be restarted until the system pressures have had time to balance out so the compressor can restart without difficulty.
