    call a service tech, odds are there was a defect that has just gotten worse with time. not much you can do about it, could be a cold solder.

    Yeah, this could be a lot of things. Sounds as if something is tripping the set's safety shut-off, which could be just about anything.

    Good luck to your friend!
