Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Why can't I cut and paste answers into the answer box also what can't I follow it up I can't go any farther

I've been sent various requests to answer questions and have tried to answer them by typing in MSword then pasting into the answer box but it does not appear when I send it--I've had to do this because I've answered a lot of questions and the fixya goes down for some unknown reason and I have to retype the answer which is a detailed answer---this is very time consuming and very very annoying --- this is why I type in MS word then paste it in the answer box but I can't do it something wrong with the fixya site

    Found wordpad--typed in search--then found it--pined it to task bar---have to do that to all the computers---also here's the answer I tried to post

    ----see if you can get it to the right person----

    question about a RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas, can you help this fellow user? Michael Smiley Michael Smiley Asked:newly installed rinnai rhfe-1004fa gas heater will not start upunit operates for about 30 seconds and then shuts off and displays error code 99, which indicates a blocked flue.I reinstalled making sure all pipes are clear,but got the same result. I then tested for a bad thermal fuse, still with the same result. any ideas?"

    Ok here goes ---I'm not trying to be a wise guy but? you know that this is a DIRECT VENT HEATER---that means it is mounted on the wall with the forced vent going directly through the wall to the outside---there is no vent piping other then the adapter that goes through the wall---any restrictions in the venting will shut it down----do you have the operating manual--- this will show installation instructions----according to the manual it's a forced vent system ----I found a pdf manual but it's not as clear as I'd like it via my computer---if there's any restricting in the flue--- there's a pressure switch that controls the process-- it is usually located in the flue area ---if it senses too much pressure (indicating a restricted flue) it will shut the unit down--- some have a vacuum switch that operates with the flue system?---no vacuum no vent-- some have both---oh one thing--- is this a new heater or a used one----if used --- where was this stored and for how long --- the manual states that even spider webs will block the venting and cause the unit to shut down----so that means it's extremely sensitive here's the site I found if you don't have a manual---it may print out readable so you can check there's a?lot of stuff that could have issues----good luck--let me know how you make out

Try using Notepad or Wordpad instead of Ms Word. RE: Word adds a lot of proprietary formatting when all you need / want is rtf or straight ascii text.

Testimonial: "Where is notepad and/or wordpad--I use public computers as well as my own and most have different operating systems--besides that I can't reply correctly like now I have to write in a testimonial box to get this resolved--the fixya site takes to much for granted and doesn't allow any proper feedback---I can'tr reach the person who has the problem to follow up---check out this issue --I can't resubmit an answer to help someone who's answered a question about a RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas, can you help this fellow user? Michael Smiley Michael Smiley Asked:newly installed rinnai rhfe-1004fa gas heater will not start upunit operates for about 30 seconds and then shuts off and displays error code 99, which indicates a blocked flue.I reinstalled making sure all pipes are clear,but got the same result.

I get various messages from face book that says follow this site below. How do I do that

I'm not sure which question you are asking, so I'll discuss both possibilities:

(1) If you want to follow a site because you are interested in the topic, go to that site's page in Facebook and click the "Like" button. For example, if you are interested in the computer that recently played Jeopardy, you could enter "IBM Watson" in the Facebook search box, and then click the Like button on that page:
(2) If you want to follow a link that was sent to you in an e-mail from Facebook, then you should ensure that you are connected to the Internet and then single-click on the link. If it's not a hyperlink (usually you can spot a hyperlink because it's underlined and colored blue), then you can copy and paste the link into your web browser. For example, you can highlight the text (from "http:" all the way through the end of that string of characters), then hit Ctrl-C (hold down the Control key on your keyboard and tap "C") to copy, then go to your web browser and hit Ctrl-V in the address bar to paste the link in there. Hit Enter and you should be good to go!

If neither of these options answers your question, please feel free to provide additional detail regarding your problem.

Have a great day!

I recently changed my password i got an an email the link does not work thanthey said i have to copy and paste i did than i called no answer and they said to look in browser what should i do next

Request the password be sent again from the login page. If the new link doesn't work again and you are about to copy and paste, select copy shortcut instead of just copy. Then paste it into your browsers URL box at the top of the page.

well, as you now sent me a request, I got a email message saying that I have a request.

Dear Ekse,

turbohead has posted a request for you.

Click here view your Request.

But basically there is no questions that you 'have' to answer, its all up to you what you answer to.

you need to earn the rank of a wiz / guru and have atleast 30 solutions to start seeing the premium problem which you can get paid from.

the amount of car premiums is expanding so new car experts are welcome. as long as you know your stuff.

Its a shame cars arent my expertice atleast a hundred $$$ gone by in car premiums in the last few days.

The premiums will be shown above the original problems. also if you let requests sit on your list and don't answer to them in 1 day, they will be stuck there and cant be removed ( got many of those stuck there..)
