I Will continue adding my two cents to all of these posts :)
Another thing to try I haven't mentioned would be to play a movie that you know is PAL. Since the camera is PAL.

Color info and reference freq. is different. In fact unless you remove region codes all together use a converter box there is no way to play a movie that is NTSC. It wouldn't even read out on your LCD screen in the spot where it is suppose to be.

Why when I use the inbuilt projector of the Sony Camcorder HDR-PJ240E with an external device,the projected screen becomes plain blue after a few minutes?

This maybe due to the external device not receiving signal to keep the display on the screen or a cable that isn't quite right. Many HD cables can cause this issue due to a security feature built into it to prevent streaming copies which helps prevent piracy. If you are using say an HDMI cable, try a different one.

Plugged in new microwave does not turn on???

Is this unit brand new just out of the box? Did you buy it online? If so, it's probably shipping damage. You usually only have 24 hours to file a claim for freight damage. If this unit was dead the first time you plugged it in to the wall, pack it back up and take it back to the store. They should check it also to verify the problem and then exchange it.

My new zeepad will not turn on

bring it back & exchange it for a another one. tell them it is factory defective. you did say that it was new and that means it is in warrantee and can be returned & exchanged for a new one that does turn on.
if it is not really new ,like only 2 weeks old, then you cant bring it back to the store where you bought it & exchange 4 a new one,
you can still send it to factory service 4 a free repair if it is only 90 days old or 1 year old. You did save your reciept ,right and can find it for free factory service. No reciept,try filing your item in the garbage dumpster.

maybe some one who who has actually owned an android instead of only having glanced in passing , at the tv commericial, while not really paying any attention, can come up with a better solution for you.

Just bought Mitsubishi WD-73740, I opened it from the box. And there is no picture. This is a brand new TV out of the box.

If brand new it is under warranty--get it fixed or if just purchased take back and either get an exchange or your money back.

Not sure why you are even here on the site but do not be tempted to tamper with a new set that does not work--will void any warranty etc.

Low volume even when on 100 on a brand new vizio

Try running the cable straight from the wall into the set and see if it's ok. If not, then I would exchange the set.

Storing photos

what you can do is try it on another phone and if the other phone works fine then you do have a problem with your phone and should have it exchange for a new one.
