loosing power to 110 circut

I have a 110 circut that looses power from time to time. The tv shuts off and so does all the things on that circut. Then it powers back up after a few minutes and does'nt trip the circut breaker. I relpaced the breaker a couple months ago with a rebuilt one. The rest of the house is fine. Any ideas?

Most common curpit is loose connection either hot or netural condutor and check the recetpale if you have backstabbed receptales move them to screw termails that will hold far much better if you have backwired that is good one as well the backwired mean it will have build in clamp to clamp down the conductor when you tighten down the screw.

Check the wirenuts for any loose connections as well.

Really start at the last knowen working location on that circuit and work it way down useally most case you find it most of the time however some case you will find more along the way.
