Most likely it is your screensaver auto lock function. If you have administrator rights to your computer, you should be able to access screen saver settings un-check the box that says "On resume, display logon screen" this is a windows 7 solution. Attached is a link on how to get to the screen saver settings.

Took out memory card to transfer photos. returned card to camera and it indicated memory card error shut down leaving lens out.

Never remove or insert a memory card while the camera is turned on. Try removing the battery, waiting about 30 minutes, and then putting in a freshly charged battery.

Never remove or insert a memory card while the camera is turned on!!!!!!

Damper on a smith boiler is not working right and boiler won't stay on

If it's a flue damper, which I think you are talking about. You will see what looks like the tip of a 1/4" slotted(flat head) screw driver. That is the indicator if open or closed. It should be paralel with the direction of flue pipe. If it's not nearly exect unit will shut down. turn t'stat off or if that's not an option, turn temp down below room temp. wait a few min, turn t'stat on or above room temp and go to boiler as fast as possible.
See if damper is opening and stopping short of opening completely.
You may have built up soot and/or debris in flue causing it not to open all the way.
Please give full model # and do not force open. You may have dectectors that are picking up vapor,-gas probs.You mayl have to do a draft test. Better to be cold, than dead. Sorry for short explination

How to close off rooms that don't need cooling...

You may be able to close off 2 of the 4 vents without any problems, but it's up to your system and your house if it works or not. This is the basics:

1. Your A/C is sized to the sq. ft. Of the living space it has to condition. 1 ton for every 400sq. Ft. Your outside unit is matched with the indoor coil and needs this certain amount of cfm's to operate correctly, shuting off too much air will usually cause the system to freeze up and become less efficient.
2. Shutting off returns will further cause problems because your pulling in less air than needed. A dirty filter will cause a similar restriction like closing off returns and the system will once again, freeze.
3. Leaving rooms unconditioned can cause the other rooms to become warmer. You can have the whole house conditioned except one room that has a high heat load and will cause the rooms around it to raise in temp. Kind of like having no insulation in the attic will leave your system useless.

So yes, you can try to shut off two of the vents, I wouldn't do returns, and see how your system holds up. There are many factors involved in weather it works or not. Hope this helps, have a good day!

I recieved a B&D 4 slice toaster in November 2010. chrome and Black. Toasting bread is a 20 minute ordeal. I DOES NOT TOAST. Set at the highest setting, I like my toast very brown, and even if you...

If it doesn't work like it should, by all means - return it for a replacement or refund. With that said, I have another possibility.

As an electrician, I have seen pretty strange things that seemingly defy explanation. There may be an issue with the outlet or circuit(s) in the kitchen where this toaster is being used. Try plugging this toaster in a plug in a different room of the house. Do not try it in the kitchen, but in the dining room, basement - or some other room instead. If it works as expected, there's an issue with the plug / circuit that you are using. You ought to have that checked out sooner rather than later.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Yah, I hav an Samsnug moinker that don't come on whens is plugged into tha top plug hole in the wall, but duz when its plugged in the bottom\r\none. I payed a lot of money for this. Can I get it back?

Check your outlets. The top outlet may be connected to a switch in the room. (It was meant for connecting a lamp that you could turn on as you walked in and then turn off as you leave the room.) Find the switch and leave it on. Then the monitor will work in both outlets. (If the room is large, a three-way switch may have been installed. In that case, you will need to make sure no one turns off the circuit using the other switch(es).)

An easy solution might be to connect a surge protection power strip or UPS to the always on bottom outlet. Then connect all of your devices to the power strip.

If the outlet is not a switched outlet, then you check the outlet itself. It is very unlikely to have only one outlet of a pair not work for most units. Outlet testers tell if you have power to the outlet as well as checking the polarity.

I hope this helps.

(I do not think the monitor is at fault since it does work in one outlet. If you return it, you will probably have to pay a restocking fee.)
