When on IE, and checking email I keep getting an hour glass shape

I keep getting the hour glass shape every time I check and get into an email then I have to go to the bottom of the page right click and hit close and then it takes me off the net and then I have to go back on IE and do the same thing over again. This gets annoying. I have Firefox but it doesn't work with some survey sites or other things I need to do.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks

When you signed up to your service provider did they make you aware of the amount of storage you were allowed on their server

Also what is the download speed of your current ISP

Click on this link and it will tell you what you are recieving www.speedtest.net

I am sorry that I cannot be more specific but I am not aware of your location

If you are running on a low download rate ask your provider to boost it

Also check with your email provider that people are not sending you very big files that fills your mailbox very quickly and also take forever to download

There are times when a very large file just kills your system and needs to be deleted by the ISP so that your machine cranks over at a normally speed

Disabling your Yahoo email to the Blackberry won't solve your slowdown issues. The Blackberry is the preferred way to receive emails from a mobile device. You could have several different email accounts set up (i.e. gmail, hotmail, yahoo, ect.) and it wouldn't impact your performance. RIM is most known for their ease of set up and ability to forward / read email from a mobile. Check for other issues regarding slow down such as other processes running, slow network connection, ect.

Hourglass Shape


If there is a hour glass shape to the image but convergence is normal, there are 2 possibilities. You either have a pincushion correction problem or if the hour glass seems to be moving, it will be an open filter capacitor in the power supply.

Unless you are electronically inclined troubleshooting this issue will require a factory trained service technician. You can expect to spend $300-$400 to fix this.

Reporting wrong times on my emails


You probably need to check your time zone settings in Yahoo...

on the upper right-hand corner just above your yahoo mail inbox, you'll see an options link... select mail options.

when you get to that page, click on 'accounts' in the left-hand menu, and once in that page, click on add or edit an account.

in this next page, click on account information, you may be prompted for your password before continuing....

once you get in there... look for 'Time Zone' and see if yours isn't some hours ahead of what it should be.... if so, click on the edit link for that section, and change this to your correct time zone.

that should do the trick!

Big cap in the regulation ckt is bad. Depending on model could be various values, a shop could use their ESR meter to find and replace it.

Zenith 46" with a "hour-glass" picture.


If the hour glass figure is a seperation of colors that appear to be convegence mis aligned, then, the convergence ICs would be the problem. If the picture is clear and you have a bending on the sides then the pincusion circuit in the horizontal circuit is where to look. Be careful of this circuit, it does control the high voltage. The only way to have a board checked is to have an Authorized Service Center look at it. It does, however, sound like there is a cold solder joint in the power supply that has gradually opened up and now is permanantly open. Call Zenith (LG) to see who they recommend.
