Power is provided to printer but printer does not come on.

The printer is approximately 3 years old and the connection has always been there. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker or is the printer power supply shot.

I am trying to work out how old my cat is in human years,she's 19?

A cat reaches the approximate human age of 15 during its first year, then 24 at age 2. Each year thereafter, it ages approximately 4 "cat years" for every calendar year. So a 5-year-old feline would be approximately 36 in cat years. Your kitty is very old, if measured by these figures. I found this info on the Internet. Google "how can I tell how old my cat is in human years" and you'll get a lot of information. Good luck.

How do I fix the problem with my TV? Details are below.

Normally on the Panasonic tv this will call for a service call. The key to getting it repaired correctly is to check for a certified Samsung repair shop because most of the parts come from Samsung. Now if you want to do your own research call to 800 number for Panasonic Tv see if there are any problems with that model that the manufacturer has extended but does not post. I had one repaired that the red light on also so I understand and it went out approximately 4 3/4 years. If your in the Atlanta area use Norman electronics they have repaired hundreds on tvs for me due to my work.

Car wont always start right away. sometimes it clicks when you turn the key. sometimes it starts right up.

There are generally three possible causes:

1) Loose/corroded connections: check and clean connections and in particular the main earth lead from the car battery to the car body and the connections to the starter motor.. A bad connection will not provide the large current required by the starter motor.

2) Weak battery: if the battery is a few years old, then it may not be able to provide the large current to drive the starter motor. Get the battery tested (usually for free).

3) Faulty or worn Starter motors which gets stuck.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Printer leaking and not printing all colors

Your printer uses a seperate printhead that is connected to the ink wells (cartridges) with long thin tubes. If the printer is leaking ink the issue will be either with the printhead or the lines connecting to it. With this type of printer though, either way the printer cannot be repaired and you are looking at replacing.

You can always call hp too though. At 1.5 yrs your printer will be out of warantee but they can offer specials on refurbished printers. Sometimes up to 50% off or more so always worth a call. I personally have have a printer that I have upgraded from and it arrived in new condition and still comes with 1 year warranty.

My 500-A Ups is making Buzzing sound.

APC 500VA ups meant for 1 Desktop and one montiro it will have battery backup for 10 to 15 minutes for the above.

Normally, You should make the raw power connected to UPS should be always ON.

The power cables of CPU and Monitor is connected with UPS. When not in use, please press the Button available on the UPS.

The UPS Life is normally 2 to 3 Years only. Now you are getting the sound and Red Light will always blink and not allow to use the system.

Better replace the 12 Vols battery to get some more life for the UPS.

And check for any loose connection of the power cables connected with Raw Power and UPS System.

Phone will randomly go into a blank white screen. Than it takes me approximately five ******* hours to go back to the main screen. What the **** is going on?

That could be that one of the components on the LCD is going bad. When this happens its always good to do a hard reset, meaning to remove battery give it a few then try to power it up again. If the issue persists i would also try performing a master reset. Make sure that your contacts,pictures and other things are backed up, for a master reset "can" delete and personal content e.g. contacts store on handset memory, pictures, downloaded content. If that fails, and your phone is less than a year old you can contact your provider phones usually come with a one year warranty through manufacturer. They might replace it at, although they might need to do some troubleshooting with you. Which will most likely comprise of what i told you.
