interest is interest
fixed is calculated yearly on the principle and is paid 365 days time
variable changes and is calculated daily ( 1/365 part of the interest rate ) and added to the remaining principle monthly
so if you have a loan of $1000.00 on fixed interest of 10% , regardless of how much you have repaid in a 12 month period , it is 10% of the principle loaned
with a variable interest the interest rate could be 10% today, 15% in 2 months time or 6% later on
it is variable
to add to that it is calculated on a daily basis (1/365 of 10%) and added to the principle left after receiving a payment on the loan
so for a $1000.00 the interest is added to that principle at the end of the month if there is no loan repayment or is added to the principle balance after a payment
the difference is that a variable interest rate loan will allow you to save money if you pay off well before the period of the loan but will add almost 2 to 3 times the loan if you pay the absolute minimum for the period of the loan
a fixed rate is where you know exactly the total interest to be paid at the end of term
I have the same problem. I have spent about $1,400 in repairs on this damn machine since we bought it about 8 years ago. It works for a bit then something else goes wrong. This is the fourth time I've had this problem. It's the belt, it's the motherboard, its this its that $200 a pop. Just enough to say ok, any more I'd buy a new one, then a few months later something else happens.
What happened to Maytag? My mom and grandmother both had maytags for years, decades without an issue. The new ones ****.
First, the LG DLP is a totally different beast, the plasma has no BULBS. You have problem with the caps?? in the unit, I would suggest they are drying out and that the set is not worth fixing as you may be throwing money at it. If, you can find a shop that will give you a estimate for free, I would go for it.
Jar-Head, bad news, the picture tube has a mild short in the green cathode, tech can come out and try to restore it but it`s usually a futile attempt on sony tubes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, BMW Rider
Very late last night our power went out for about 40 minutes. Today my i9900 will not turn on. This is the second time this happens to my i9900.
The first time, I was lucky, it was still in warranty (11 months 2 weeks into it). Now its exactly 1 year 2 weeks later, and the same problem has occurred.
I believe the i9900 must have a very sensitive PC board. I have the printer connected to a UPS and nothing else in my home has exhibited a problem. I tried unplugging. Connecting to a different outlet, and interestingly, when you plug the cord, you can hear a very faint click or spark noise.
The last time, when Canon sent the replacement, I switched the power supply but that did not fix the problem. It seems the problem is somewhere else.
Anyone has an idea on how to fix? Will it require sending to a repair center? If so, any ideas what it will cost?
I had exactly this problem.
I fixed my AL2021 by replacing the output caps on the power board. $4 repair. Pull the thing apart (I posted somewhere on fixya how to do it, but it's simple) and replace the 1000uF, 680uF and 470uF caps on the end of the power board.
samsung specialize in bad camcorders. It doesn't even have to break usualy in order to give you a fuzzy picture.
If it's the same thing I would expect it to still be covered from the last repair. A repair should be covered for a year, but I don't really know what's their policy.
Sorry for the anguish, I hope it works out.
