If the LCD does not display properly, it could be due to the defect in the Flexible connecting cable or the LCd and finally the back light panel. Check in that order and if you need spares or service manuals you can contact me Sivaram [email protected]

How do you adjust the vertical hold on this TV?

Modern TV's haven't got a vertical hold control like in the old days. The TV system now uses a system of counting. For instance;
UK is 625line which is 15.625KHz line frequency. Divide it down by the correct amount and we get 50Hz frame frequency. There is no need for external controls. That is how copycode on video works. Supply 620 lines and in the end that is not divisable to give 50Hz so video cannot be copied as TV shows the wrong speed frame and will cause no colour and picture disturbance.
Likewise the same rule applies to USA 60Hz system.

How do i check copy count?

Hold down the "C" key for a few seconds. The page count will be displayed in 2 sets of numbers. Such as 026 then 003. This would indicate 26,003 copies. The machine must be in the ready to copy state.

I have just bought 2 Acer aspire one netbooks. Before Xmas I checked that these would connect wirelesly to internet and they both did - have now tried again after Xmas and they wont connect wirelessly...

Hello, Vicki.

A drained battery would have no bearing on wireless access.

Since both laptops do not access wirelessly, sounds like as issue with your hub. Try the laptops at a wi-fi cafe to see if they work OK.

Hope this helps.
