Please pardon the apparently obvious questions but unobserved incidents occur and this may be relatively simple

Is the device plugged in securely? There are three possible points of disconnection? I have had cables loosely plugged into power bricks that appear connected but in fact were not.

If plugged into a powerstrip is the power strip on?

Is the printer on?

Is the USB cable properly connected at both ends? it may have slipped loose.

Is the printer displaying an error such as out of paper or empty ink cartridge or paper jam?

Netflix content error sony bravia tv

I have two Sony TVs (KDL-46HX729 and KDL-55EX700) and suddenly three weeks ago, I got nothing but "Content Error" every time I tried to stream any Netlix content. All other internet content worked fine. I could see my Netflix queue and make changes to it, but couldn't view any title on either TV.
Netflix worked fine on all other devices. Netflix said all was fine on their end (after deactivating and reactivating the account on both TVs).
Sony said all was fine on their end (after factory reset).
ISP said all was fine with the line.
Router manufacturer said all was fine with the router. Speedtests revealed plenty of speed for streaming.
At some point, I also was told to change primary and secondary dns on the TVs to and No effect.
Finally, Sony suggested I create a new (free trial) Netflix account and lo and behold that account worked fine. Netflix said I could just use that new account, although they could see nothing wrong with my old account. I was about to do that, but had the fear that this problem would just happen again and I'd be back to square one. Finally, deep in an internet search yesterday, I found someone who said they had fixed a similar problem by deleting their Netflix instant queue. I tried it (I was about to lose my queue anyway by switching to a brand new account). So, I deleted all items in my queue. Made no immediate difference, but I tried Netflix again after a few hours and IT SUDDENLY WORKED FINE. 24 hours now and Netflix is still fine on both TVs. My fingers are crossed. I suspect it has something to do with the way Sony TVs buffer the content; the large number of items in the queue were taking up space somehow.

Hi I've got an HP Deskjet F380 which is now permanently showing an 'E' light and low ink light. It was working fine with occasional glitches with print queues but is now permanently 'in error'...

Clean the electrical contacts on the carriage as well as the cartidge using a soft lint free cloth wetted with iso-propyal alcohol. Clean also the "steel rod" on which the carriage moves.

Wipe clean the encoder strip (a flexible coded PVC strip running through the PCB behind the carriage and hooked at the ends) with a DRY soft cloth (DO NOT USE ANY LIQUID TO CLEAN THE ENCODER STRIP TO PREVENT ERASING OF THE CODE). If still dirty Replace.

Your printer should hopefully start working.

Cannot get printer to either delete item in queueor print it it says is deleting but does nothing whe ni switch off system completely and then switch on again does test page .. then nothing

Deleting an item in the print queue often doesn't seem to work until the system is restarted. I've had this problem with both XP and Win7.
The test page sounds like you have requested it. Try just cancelling a document, then when it hangs in the print queue, restart the computer.
I've researched several "fixes" but am convinced it is a Microsoft problem that they need to fix.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

When I cancel the printer does not print other items that have been scanned. it gets hung up.

when you print an article on-line. it goes into your printers memory. 10 pages for instance. if you cancel after 5 pages. the printers RAM ( memory ) stores the remaining pages to be printed. the only way to do this, is to cancel printing. then go into printer program. and delete the queue, or pending items, before exiting windows.
hope this explains your dillema.
