Nook HD+ hard restart

Sadly, the only cure is to do a factory reset. BEFORE YOU DO THAT, realize that you may lose what you have put onto your Nook since you bought it. The good news, is that you can reclaim all the stuff you bought from Barnes&Nobel ( You only really lose the stuff you put on yourself. I suppose you have a backup of your personal stuff stored onto your computer. How do you do a hard reset? You press and HOLD the power button for about 20 seconds.

Messed with the pattern lock on accident and now i cant use phone

Wait, when you bought the phone from the guy, did he factory reset it first? i.e. did you have to sign in with your gmail account before using it? If the answer to that is yes, then you shouldn't have to get the other guys details. Did you put in your username as Because you need the googlemail, not just gmail. If the answer to the first question was no, then you could try factory resetting the phone yourself by pressing home and end call together for about 20 seconds till a triangle with an exclamation point and a phone come up, then press alt+l, then select factory reset using the trackball. However this will erase all your text messages, as the phone will be just like it was when it was bought new.

Buttons sticking-some take several presses to work , some stay on after you let up on them. No Kids in the house so no sticky messes spilled in the remote. Any Ideas? it's about a year old-Harmony...

I bought the stuff at Active Surplus in Toronto .. google it.

Check engine light on

Heater temp is a bit low but I don't know what the ambient temp was when you tested (the colder the outside air, the cooler the blower temp will be.) I'd definitely change the thermostat before doing anything else. Todays engines run @ about 210 degrees. If you've got a 160 thermostat in there, it won't ever get there. (will also mess with mpg.) Even the cheapest manuals contain locations for stuff like that. Everyone keeps changing locations, and I haven't worked on this stuff for a while, so I can't give you a location.
Yes there are other possible causes to your problem (blend doors etc) but I'd stick to the simple common stuff first!

Just bought a PANASONIC PT-47WX53G On ebay for what I thought was a steal. It was explained that somehow someone got into the service menu and messed something up with the convergence on the green gun....

You can try restoring to factory defaults, and you can try the manual convergence option. If the manual convergence fails to reset (as in, the crosshairs physically will not move), then the convergence board is bad, and will need to be replaced or repaired (if you are a good circuit solderer).
