Try to reset the camera as in my other posts here in this thread on Sony problems.
The reset button is under the battery door. Push the button, close the door, start the camera and reset all the settings to the way you want, including the date and time.

Since switching from direct tv to Comcast I have had to sign in with my password twice in one month.WHY?

Many cable carriers who act as ISP's (Comcast, Verizon, roadrunner, etc.) want to assure that their services are used only in the manner they (the company) intended. Residential connections use can be hijacked for "business" type uses (web servers, NAS, Virtual private networks (VPNs), etc. By forcing occasional momentary full service disconnects with hardware resets or by other means, these ISPs make those "off service uses" more difficult.
Additionally ongoing software upgrades or network equipment replacements and/or maintenance can often have a similar result for the service client.
It seems to matter far less to them that individual users might be inconvenienced (by having to reconnect or reenter password) as compared to maximizing their revenue stream.

What ink/toner cartridge can I use with the Canon PC-311 copier and where can I find them?

I would personally recommend the Canon E31 or E40 cartridge because they last longer than the standard ones. As far as where to get them.....just about anywhere. has them and I use them so I know their compatible ones are of very good quality. Just put canon E31 in the search box to see the picture and compare with your current cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What does usim full mean

USIM is the SIM card for 3G networks (U stands for UMTS). It operates under a different voltage level, as compared to the normal SIM card.
Many operators (like mine here) don't make a distintion, related to their service, between them, i.e. I can access the 3G network with my old SIM card. As far as I know, USIM cards shouldn't be put in non-3G phones. On the other hand, 3G enabled phones are able to handle both types.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

How do I transfer pictures to my computer?

The only way I have found so far to do this without using any of those very expensive minutes is to get the most current version of Susteen Datapilot. I think it is v6 or 6.1. Susteen says their newest version WILL transfer pictures & do your contacts also with this phone. They advertise a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee for what that is worth? I have been able to access Contacts on mine using other methods, but no photo transfer/access so far. Susteen Datapilot looks to be it for now.

The vacuum shuts down once it's used for about 20 minutes - overheating? If anybody has any ideas, give me a shout.

Seems to be a common problem with the Euro-Pros. They happen to wrap their motors with a foam filter. This acts as an insulating blanket, retaining a ton of heat. I removed mine, and so far, it works a lot better.

42 inch Samsung DLP TV shuts off by itself. I can turn it back on and sometimes it stays on and other times shuts off within seconds. Some days it stays on all day without a problem. Other days it shuts...

I bypassed the safety switch (it was bad) and vacuumed and blew out all of the dust. So far with this set, 3 years old, I have replaced the bulb twice,it exploded both times, and the color wheel which also exploded! We love the picture but the next time it goes out, it goes out to the trash and I will purchase a top of the line LED/LCD set. No moving parts!!! Samsung designed and manufactured a whole bunch of lemon sets and will not admit it. I have found several hundred complaints about their DLP sets and only a few on other brands.

My camera shakes when i try to capture a picture it is a year old and sony

You can try to re-initialize the camera. That worked for about 2 months until mine acted up again and I had to send it back to Sony for the $171 repair. Their service was lightning fast.

Got power, but no booting activity

Assuming you have compatable memory fitted to the mobo; if you cannot get as far as the power on self test (P.O.S.T) or into the bios to set it up, remove all components you have fitted apart from the memory and the hard drive and a graphics card if not on board graphics and see if you can get as far as the post screen. If nothing appears and you just get a flashing cursor, then either the bios chip is faulty, or you have possibly stressed the board when fitting components and accidently broke a soldered contact. If you do get the post try putting back one peice of hardware at a time until you come across the problem part.
