There are a couple of possible causes for this, but my first suspect would be the main/input board. There are a group of electrolytic caps on that board, any one or group of which are probably failing, and my gues would be in and around the micom IC3003. This would cause the video or audio signal to be interrupted or distorted and if the signal processor sees nothing, nothing is exactly what the processor displays. unfortunately this repair is not for the less than technician. To repair that board a tech will use several tools far more expensive than the TV itself when it was new. On top of that it's not a repair you would trust less than a CET to perform. That said, it's not hopeless and far less expensive repairing it than buying a new one or half of a new one. So my best suggestion if to have it repaired at a reputable shop - one that specializes in plasma repair is preferrable. If you're not sure how to locate such a shop contact NESDA and research a servicer in your area. Hope this helps. Bill

Shortly after power on, the printer powers down automatically after the wifi signal light turns green. The printer will power cycle like this until it's unplugged.

Spoke with Epson Tech Support and here is their solution that worked for me:

Unplug your printer
Turn off your wifi router
Turn on your printer
Turn off google cloud print services (under Setup - System Administration - Google Cloud Print Services)
Turn off the printer
Turn on your router, wait until its back online (test using a browser)
Turn on your printer

This should solve it.

She also said to "Leave off Google Cloud Print Services" for now as they have had multiple calls, cases and issues with it lately. No ETA on when they might get it fixed.

How can I install Amazon Cloud Drive?

I would be tempted to uninstall (using control panel) and try using One Cloud from Microsoft or Google's version (can't recall the name off hand).

Where is the first gold coin in world 2-2

here is the complete run through for world 2-2
This level will reintroduce everyone to that rapscallion in the flying cloud
(Lakitu) and his pets he throws about (Spiny)! Take on the three Red Koopa
Troopas if you wish to, but mainly concentrate on getting the Power-Up while
moving right, passing the ledge to see Lakitu come out from behind the
nearby Pyramid! Lakitu will throw his pet Spinies at Mario, but if Mario
can take out Lakitu, he will not return for a short while, and Mario may be
able to even hitch a ride in that cloud! Run right to find a couple high ?
Blocks (one has a Power-Up) to attack Lakitu from, and if Firepower is
yours, use it to take Lakitu from his perch, followed by stealing his ride!

With the cloud in hand, fly right until a coin path upwards appear, so
follow it to locate the first Star Coin. Jump off the cloud and run right
past more Red Koopa Troopas, jumping a gap when the Piranha Plant retreats
into his pipe, finding some bricks to Ground Pound through to grab the
second Star Coin. Lakitu should have returned by now, so be wary of him as
you move to the right, finding a structure with bricks and ? Blocks in it
(note that this a tribute to a structure in the first Lakitu level ever, in
SMB's 4-1) to bust up as you desire, followed by locating a green pipe to go
down, which will launch Mario high into the air, directly at a pipe above
(press UP to go inside).

Use the dual set of green pipes here tog et the Coins and third Star Coin,
then head down the pipe on the right to return to the main level area. Move
to the right, suing the rocking toadstool to go jump onto the flagpole,
ending the level!
hope this helps........any more ????

Jumping Screen


I've had a couple of these. The panel control board is going bad, but there may be a way to make it last a bit longer. If you go into the MENU of the TV, and turn off all the color correction, all the whistles and bells that come inside the tv to "make the picture better," it usually helps. Any kind of motion correction, or any kind of noise reduction (picture noise reduction) should be turned off. If the picture has a cloud of green pixels that seems to pepper the screen, then after you turn off all the stuff in the menu, unplug the TV for 5 minutes, and then plug back in. It should help the picture some.

Hope this helps...

Blinking light on 37" Dynex LCD

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Pink cloud covering most of the screen

If the pink spot appears as mostly a circle in the middle if the screen then a light engine is needed. If it is an even coverage than possibly just a memory initilization needed by a technician.
