Re: Printer problem

The first thing I would try is working with the wifi router to make sure the printer always has the same IP address.

The IP address is always the same - I set that up shortly after I installed the printer. In fact, dealing with this [more]

Re: Printer problem

Thanks TK -

I dug into that sleep mode thing - it appears that there is no way to turn it off! I did change it from a 5 minute delay to a 15 minute delay but that doesn't really fix anything.

Did a bunch of googling around - [more]

Printer problem

I recently purchased and installed a new printer - an HP Officejet Pro 8610. This is a wireless model and it's set up that way - connects through my router's wi-fi hotspot.

It seems to work ok with one MAJOR exception: if it hasn't been used [more]

Re: Printer problem

It could be time for a new printer. It's not worth messing with old ones. They are disposable.

That's exactly the conclusion I finally came to.

I looked into buying a new printhead - it would have cost about $60 to $70. Then [more]

Re: Printer problem

Well, did some Googling around - found some stuff about "cleaning the printhead". I did that (and I now have some permanent stains on my fingers). That seemed to help - the black ink is printing now.

During all this, there were [more]

Printer problem

My HP OfficeJet 6500A Plus printer is not printing any black - the colors are printing just fine.

It popped up a warning a couple of days ago that I should get a new black cartridge but it printed ok. The next day it printed something that [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

On your PC you would open gmail and on the left side, top, right under "Google" you see "gmail" with a little down-arrow. Click that, select "contacts".

OK thanks. I just did that and it shows that there [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

If it's Android, and you're not using a special app, then your contacts list is within gmail.

Yes, they're both Android phones and there's no special app involved.

Do you know if it's possible to actually see the contacts [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

Or is it possible to export the contacts to my own computer some way? And then to import them to the new phone.

Well, I may have figured this one out. I found an option on the old phone to export the contacts to the SD card (as a [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

As to the contact list:

I have them backed up using Backup Assistant Plus on the old phone. Where does this actually store them? Is it possible to get them from there on to the new phone?

Or is it possible to export the contacts to [more]

Questions regarding a phone upgrade

In the next few days, I'm going to be upgrading to a new phone. The current one is a Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 2; the new one will be a Galaxy S4. (If it matters, the provider is Verizon.)

I'm not too concerned about getting the new phone [more]

Re: How will the market react?

Well, I see this morning that the market futures are up about .5%.

My personal thoughts on this question are that the market will react favorably to republican control of the senate. And, FWIW, CNN's pre-market comments this morning included [more]

How will the market react?

If the republicans take control of the senate, what will the effect be on the market in the near futhure? Or, will it have any effect?

Note, the is NOT a political question. It is a METAR question.

Re: Shut Down vs Sleep

I suggest that you do the "hibernate" that your son is doing. For one thing, it allows a quick re-start the next time you turn it on.

For years, I have let my computers run 24 x 7. I've wanted to be able to use my computer at [more]

Re: Gremlins using my internet?

Depends on exactly which light on the modem is flashing. First, I assume that you have a cable modem and that it is ON all the time, even if you don't have any computers running.

If this is the case then at least one of the lights on the [more]
