    Woke up to the TV being soaked from the inside.  Supposably NO ONE did it. Dont know if I am suppose to use the hair drier at a distance or what.  Need help.  

    I have had my husband use windex on it and soaked up into the screen, a very large spot 12" x 12" at least in total.  It actually dried up on its own.  BUT windex has chemicals that dry faster.  Water doesn't.   WHAT TO DO?????

    My dear 3 year old daughter put water all over our big screen projector tv and now there's a big water spot. It almost looks like it's spreading from the bottom. My husband hasn't noticed or else he'd have a fit! How do I fix this or is it the end of our tv?

Son sprayed cleaner on tv.

I have not a clue what to tell you, but doubt the cleaner is the cause of this. In any case the TV is so old you will not be able to get parts.

Black line on scans with neat receipts mobile scanner

Multiple lines appeared in every scan right after scanning a document from a credit card company that had those nasty adhesive strips used to attach credit cards.
First, I scanned multiple full pages to see if the problem would clear itself. After about 6 pages, I was able to identify the specific areas where the lines occurred on a document.
Next, I sprayed a tiny bit of glass cleaner (I used Sparkle glass cleaner, but I suspect any brand would work) onto an 8.5x11 sheet of plain paper in the area where the black lines appeared. NOTE: DO NOT SOAK THE PAPER, just get it damp.
Finally, I ran the dampened paper through the scanner. After each run, I would compare the result to the prior scan. As each streak was removed, I used a different piece of paper wetting only to address the remaining streaks.
After only a few runs, the streaks were gone (in my case).

Hope this helps!

Can we seperate the tv from the speaker to transposrt it up stairs?

You should be able to take the screen off and the top black plastic shroud that holds the mirror off to transport it.

1) To do this, you will pull the speaker grill cover off on the front bottom.
2) I think there are four screws at the bottom of the screen holding the bottom in place. Use a 1/4" socket.
3) Disconnect the wire harness going to the screen by squeezing the tab on the connector - very easy to do.

4) Remove all the screws on the black plastic shroud - about 8 of them. Have someone hold your screen and gently lift the screen off. The black shroud I think still has some screws holding it in place that become visible once you lift the screen off.

5) Once the screen is off, there should be a set of screws that are holding the shroud down. Remove those and gently put the shroud on the floor where the mirror cannot get damaged.

6) Installation is reverse of the above.

Note: This would be a good time to clean the mirror and tops of the CRT bulbs. It will make your picture much nicer if it hasn't been done. Use a non streaking glass cleaner on the mirror and bulbs. For the screen, just wipe it down, don't spray it with glass cleaner.

My 6 year old Kenmore Elite DW has started leaking and has a musty smell. The dishes are clean but food residue is left on the inside door and black gunk builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher.

Use a wet/dry shop vac to clean out the strainer and drain from the inside of your machine. A musty smell is a sure sign that food particles have clogged your drain BUT can also mean that your wash/spray heads have become clogged as well. Use a pipe cleaner on the spray heads and run water over the jets to make particles flow to the big hole in the center of your wash heads, then reassemble. Don't forget to put those little plastic looking rings back exactly the way you found them or your wash heads wont turn properly. They are usually made of teflon to lubricate the spray heads.
