    Thank you. This would have worked immediately except my wireless access point wouldn't drop the ethernet IP address assigned to the printer so the wireless connection would fail. I had to log into my access point and force the old connection to be removed.
    Then powering up the printer connected immediately.

My 1999 grand Am tick or knocking when engine is warm


A "ticking" would typically be associated with the valve train, possibly a failed or poorly adjusted lifter.
A "knock" is commonly associated with connecting rod bearings at the crankshaft.
Using a mechanics stethescope and listening to the engine while it is running at an idle will assist in identifying the problem.

Component failures on Maytag Neptune Font Load Washers such as the pressure...


Component failures on Maytag Neptune Font Load Washers such as the pressure switch, wax motor, hot and cold water valve solenoids, timer motor, 24 VDC circuit, and the overall electrical buffer circuit have significant effect on the machine control board. Failed resistors on the control board can be used to determine failed washer components. Resistor R9 is associated with the pressure, R11 is for the wax motor, R51 for the hot water valve solenoid, R52 for the timer motor, R53 for the cold water valve solenoid, R143 for the 24 VDC circuit, and R162 for the overall electrical buffer circuit. The TRIAC Q6 is also associated with the wax motor while TRIACS Q3, Q9, and Q17 are for the timer motor, cold water valve solenoid, and hot water valve solenoid respectively. These TRIACS must also be replaced should the corresponding resistors have failed or burned out.

Microwave was working fine then there was a loud pop now there is no heat everything else works fine lights vent and display


There was a component failure in the magnetron circuit. The magnetron is the device which produces the microwaves that heat the food. There are extremely high (and dangerous) voltages associated with this part of your oven. As a result, components often fail and make noise because these components can burst rather violently. You should take it to a competent service tech. The components associated with the magnetron can often be replaced when they fail and it is not always expensive to have repaired.

Magic focus does not work. RGB projections do not line up.


That symptom is usually caused when the convergence ICs and associated resistors fail. You can get convergence repair kits for the various Hitachi models from www.tvrepairworld.com the kids contains both ICs and the associated resistors plus the CD with repair instructions.

My computer starts to boot then once it is completed the a message comes up saying there is an error and then a blue screen comes up and reboots itself. THis continues and does not stop


When starting up, press the F8 key to catch the Boot Menu. Select the option to disable automatic restart on system failure. Boot and when it fails the Blue Screen will remain for you. Look near the top and see what file has been identified as the failure i.e. NV4_disp.dll. (Google the file name to see what program or hardware the failed file is associated with) Press and Hold the power button to shut down. Turn the computer back on and press the F8 key again to catch the Boot menu, and select Safe mode. If allowed into Safe Mode, try to go into Device Manager and either disable the failing device, or remove the associated program. If this doesn't work you can try to do a system restore to a date before this error started to appear. If you post back the file causing the blue screen, I can instruct you further.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer GEW9250P (electric)


Here is a list of possible causes. NONE OF THE LEDS LIGHT... Check to make sure that ribbon connectors P3 and P4 are inserted all the way into the machine control electronics board. (To access the machine control, pull the dryer away from the wall and remove the three screws from the top panel on the back. Slide the top panel rearward about 1/2" and lift. The machine control is on the left hand side. P3 and P4 are the "ribbon" connectors going into the board.) A PARTICULAR GROUP OF LEDS DOES NOT LIGHT... A group or combination of LEDs share a common electronic connection. If this connection is open, all of the LEDs in the group will be disabled. If this occurs, replace the entire console electronics and housing. ONE LED DOES NOT LIGHT... Press the button associated with the LED several times. If the LED does not light, the LED has failed. Replace the entire console electronics and housing. NO BEEP SOUNDS... If the associated LEDs do light up, the beeper circuit may have failed on the machine control electronics board. NO DRYER FUNCTION IS ACTIVATED WHEN A PARTICULAR PUSHBUTTON IS PRESSED... If the associated LEDs do light up, the machine control electronics board may have failed. AN E3 ERROR CODE IS DISPLAYED... An E3 error code means that there is a user interface or a software mismatch. It can also mean that a component on the console electronics,or the machine control electronics board has failed. Hope this little tutorial gets you where you need to go. Let us know how it turns out, will ya?
