Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

QVC Website I can get to the QVC home page But when I click on a link in the upper right corner For example "customer service" It fails. Has been happening ever since they upgraded the website. This happens on 2 diferent computers in my house One uses a Netgear router and the other uses a cisco router. So I don't think the router is the problem. I believe QVC changed something that is preventing me from using the links within the homepage.

    I cannot access QVC items. They appear in a bovx with a little red x. This is the only web site I am having trouble viewing.

    I called QVC and they do not have a technical help line. Too bad, I'm a 15 year customer that's about to do all my holiday shopping elsewhere.

    Thank you for the reccommedation but unfortunately it did not resolve the problem. By the way the problem occurs even if I "bypass" the routers and go directly from my PC to the modem.

    This is why I was positive that the problem was not due to my router. I paid Microsoft to resolve the problem. They did a system trace and deterimined that the path my ISP provider (Optimum) is

    taking is the problem. For some reason the path times out. The Optimum technicians have NOT been able to resolve it even though they have been working on a solution for months. Very very disappointed. Thank you for trying to fix the problem. I am seriously considering switching ISP's going to Verizon.

    I can successfully use the secure links on and This problem is unique in that it is limited to the site.

    As mentioned earlier I do use two computers one a desktop and one a laptop. One uses XP and the other Vista. The only things in common is the ISP (Optimum) and the router which we know is not the problem.

    The message I get when I click on the secure link on the is" Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response. Cannot communicate with (

    Please keep offering solutions since I do not believe I will hear one from my ISP. Happy New Year

I noticed that the website starts with a normal http (port 80) request.
If you browse over the website, I expect in your case everything to be normal.
The moment you select any of the "customer" information protected area pages, you enter a secure connection (SSL port 443).
At that moment, a certificate between your computer and the server will be released by the server for valid data exchange. Obviously, something goes wrong at your side.
You mentioned your routers are not the problem.
Are there other websites with https (Port443) causing the same problem on your computers?
If so, I think your routers have blocked port 443.
This should not be the case, but it just needs verification.

If other sites are o.k., you can try to add the secure website (because that's where the data is coming from) into your trusted websites in your webbrowser.
A bit mean of me, but I presume you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
For IE version 7, here is how to do this;

- In the browser top right you select Extra
- Internet Options
- Security
- Click on the trusted websites (green mark)
- click on the "websites" button
- Enter in the top white field the following website;

- Make sure that the checkbox at Serververification (https) .... is marked
- and click on "Add"
- Click on close and OK.

Close your webbrowser and open it again and try to acces the website again.

Good luck.

    I cannot believe that the ISP blocks such port.
    It is used too often on the internet and it is a very important port as well.

    In these cases you are mostly caught in a catch 22 and you feel like a ping pong ball between the ISP and Microsoft (your computer).

    I just want to know if you would ask someone else with e.g. a laptop if (s)he would experience the same thing when (s)he is connected to the internet via your connection.

    If that's the case, then it's the ISP.

    What happens if you go to the website of keybank?

    They use a complete secure site (port 443).
    What happens if you try to access that site as an instance ?

    Last tip: try to delete all your temporary internet files on your computer (also the offline files) and finally refresh the webpage.

I need a users Manuel for cooks essentials pressure cooker cecp900r

Angela, isn't Cook's Essentials made exclusively for QVC? Perhaps you can contact someone at QVC for help- maybe for getting the manufacturer phone number to call customer support!?
Unfortunately, other Cook's Essentials manuals I found online state "contact customer service" for parts, etc. but leave no contact number or address for customer service; so one is left to guess they mean QVC!?
The only manual I was able to find is the CECP800

I purchased your 10inch portable DVD player from qvc and in need of a car charger for it do you sell one for it item #e226675., thank you for your help.

I think there a bit confused. This is a site for helping people try to fix things. Its where regular people like you and me go to ask questions or answer them. This site is not apart of QVC and you were miss informed.This site dose not sell products.
But if you give me the make and model of the dvd player i can help you with that. I cant look up the item number seeing how were not associated with QVC.

Problem w/ "Cable In" connection socket on Mintek DTV-373-D 37" HDTV

I am having a problem with my DTV-373 also. I called QVC customer service and they gave me a number to call for service. My unit is under warranty also. When you call this number one of the promts is "Press 1 if you bought your product from QVC". The person will take your name and address. They will send a repair kit to your house. When you receive the kit you call the number back and they will send a service person to your house to fix it. Mintek has gone bankrupt but this service was hired to fix problems and cover warranty. QVC has done a great job with this. I am sorry I do not have the number in front of me at the moment.
