Have you descaled the unit? If so, milk might have been sucked up into the frothing wand. Take off the exterior covering of frothing wand...rinse it well.

I have used a large paper clip...straighten it out. Take the straightened out paper clip and insert it into the metal stem gently and move it around inside the metal stem. This may dislodge the blockage. Before putting the exterior cover back on, turn on the the frothing wand to see if it has improved the power of the steam.

Is Skoda Rapid a good car?

Skoda Rapid has been on sale since November 2011 in the Indian market and has tasted moderate success, despite the presence of several heavyweights like Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Volkswagen Vento in the same segment. With time progressing, the sales of the sedan started deteriorating as its rivals were far more advanced, up-market and affluent. It is what propelled Skoda India to introduce Skoda Rapid Facelift, which comes with several cosmetic upgrades and a subtle bump in power output.
Here are some key points:
What I like:
  • Impressive Build quality.
  • Driving Dynamics.
  • Looks better than outgoing version
What I don't like:
  • Precarious after-sales service.
  • Maintenance cost is high

I would recommend you contact Keurig directly with your problem, as they have a liberal warranty policy. There are really no user serviceable parts on the Keurigs. I had one quit and they shipped me out a complete new unit after verifying the serial number, only requiring I send back the K cup holder (cone) from the old one.

I cannot get videos to play on my LG GT500, despite transferring them to divX as recommended in the manual. This is driving me nuts - can anyone help me?

I finally managed to convert a video and watch it on my GT500, after 4 days of trial and error.
I used a free program called SUPER (google the words "super converter").

Settings for SUPER:
output container: 3gp
output video codec: H263
output audio codec: AAC LC

Hope this helps.

Hook up your PS3 using reglar A/V cables.

Then go ahead and turn off the the PS3. Then hold down the power button on the front and as your doing that turn on the PS3 from the back and make sure your holding down the power button on the front for 5 seconds.

At this point it should reset the setting to factory default and you'll get video. At this point you can go change the output to HDMI and then reboot the PS3 and you''ll get video thru that again.
