I keep loosing my internet connection. I thought

I keep loosing my internet connection. I thought it was becaue the power cord was getting hot so I unplug the motem when I'm not using it and usually this helps. I had it uplugged for 5 days, plugged it in and got the green light for 2 minutes then it turned red. I uplugged it again for 15 minutes, plugged it back in and the internet connection came up. SO is this a motem problem or a problem with my line?

Contact your ISP, who supplied the modem.
Since they probably _want_ to keep you as a paying customer, they will replace it, "no questions asked".

Why does my sanyo tv ce32ld08b keep turning of

I assume the TV's out of warranty. Sounds like an intermittent connection. Make sure the AC power cord is not loose. Check the AC cord at the TV & wall. Next check for sensitivity to heat. Use a hair dryer. CAUTION- DON'T LET THE TV GET TOO HOT to touch with your bare finger. With the TV ON and working, warm up one small area at a time on the BACK side only. If you find a sensitive area, take it to a TV shop to check for a bad connection.

Voltage drops for 119 to 104 when the roof top unit is running, it will trip the 20 amp breaker occasionally.

You need a larger drop cord (heaver duty) from the service to the RV. You need to also check the Service plug in the side of your Rv for loose or corrosion in the socket. Then check the power connection to the A/c unit. Check these connections for loose wiring or getting hot. As the voltage drop means extra resistance along the path. Extra resistance means loose, dirty, or bad connections, and get hot, which can cause a fire.

Dar 440 electrical diagram: the condenser electrical connection 'plug' came out, I do not find how & where it was connected. How do I 'plug' it back?

Hi, if you are talking of the main cord that powers up the unit, you should have a power block in the rear of the box that shows you where the wire connect. They show no diagrams to pull up on the Internet. You say the condenser fan plug came out but that is wired in along with the compressor, one leg of the condenser fan motor to a neutral connection and the hot leg wired with the compressor to cycle on and off with the refrigerator. You must mean the power cord which connects to a power block with marked terminals for the hot, neutral, and ground or earth as some tech's refer it as. I would get to the back and remove the fiber panel if it is set up this way, and with a strong light you will be able to find where they connect. It is really not to difficult and I have confidence you will be able to do this. It is only 120 volts but can give you a serious jolt, so always make sure it is unplugged as in your case it already is. You must have rolled it out and stretched the cord and pulled it out? This happens. Please let me know what you have found and just have a good strong light and take your time to locate and find the markings to wire this cord. Keep me posted.
Good Luck,

Hello heres my problem the power cord tip gets so hot and burns even ive replaced the battery ive replaced the cord and the tip and its stil happening help please

Seems that your notebook's power socket, where you plug the power cord, is damaged & is causing a loose connection. The loose connection causes the power socket as well as the power cord's tip to overheat & burn.

Dryer gets hot and a fuse keeps burning out model number le577oxwno

If you are referring to the FUSE in your house service panel and that IT keeps blowing, then you may have a loose cord wire at the dryer or mating receptacle. Always remove or disable power form these wires BEFORE performing any service. If you can extend the dryer away from the wall and examine the terminal block where the cord ( with ring lugs) is tied to it..check for any sign of carbon ( which would indicate a high impedance junction) meaning that it will get hot and may cause a fire.. Remenber, always remove or disable power from this circuit prior to working on it.. Good luck.. and hope this helps..

Internet connections

Hello I am sorry you r having this problem, I need to know a little bit more info, Now when you plug in your computer to power cord you loose everything with you internet connection. Do you see the active monitor in the lower right hand side, it would look like a monitor blinking or it may not be blinking. Have you also tried to activate the antenna after you plug in your power cord. There should be a button with an antenna on it the upper part of the pc, You may also go into your control panel and turn it on there, It sounds like its set to shut down the wireless connection when plugged in, its just to opposite as what it should be, usually its when you unplug your computer that the internet connection is lost for power saving reasons, you can also right click the connection monitor in the lower right and properties and repair after the power is plugged in of course give that a try and see if that works for you, I hope it help you out with your problems
