  4. Hi Good folk of Sheffield. My TV (Sony KDL-40Z4500) has bust. It no longer powers on. Thinking it was a fuse, i changed this. Still doesn't work. I tried an alternative power chord, still doesn't work. Anyone on here who is an engineer and or knows where to take it would be appreciated. *EDIT: I can see other topics similar, however didnt want to piggy back on their threads. Many thanks in advance.
  5. There are too many to list. I cycle to and from work 7+ miles each way. I am sure that one day the sate of the roads will cause me serious harm at some stage. I have already come off my bike due to the potholes. I Ride from the top of Standon road, which in my opinion is one of the worst roads. I like the fact that The full run from Ecclesfield rd, Tyler street all the way through to Carlisle St have been re surfaced due to the Toure De France. Its so annoying that because this event is coming to our region they decide to sort the main drags out but leave the surrounding roads in unsafe complete disrepair.
  6. Submitted. GREAT POST!! Ive been wanting to find an initiative such as this and am happy it seems that something is being done. Biggest issue is the shocking state of our roads. Some areas are life threatening IMO (At night without adequate lighting) Hope something positive happens.
  7. Hi peeps I know this is a long shot but my partner left her hot pink umbrella on the tram this morning and was appealing to anyone who may have found it. She got on the tram at meadowhall at approx 8am it gets into town around 0815 and into hillsborough (where she gets off) approx 0830. Please let me know if you found it Regards
  8. Anyone know of a good fancy dress shop/hire place in sheffield? cheers folks

  11. wow guys thanks for all your input help and advice its answered beyond doubt all my questions... and its quite clear there is a very serious debate goin on re the mickey mouse dentists out there who only see $... and those that have us at heart!!! so its finding those. i will be trying to get my self registered at a NHS dentist!!! as per the cheaper tariff!!!!! thanks again peeps
  12. now now folks... it is a nightmare but thats a seperate debate... i was just after a bit of a lesson as to how it all works etc... i take it if im registered then that may be a good thing no?? and that treatment costs are inevitable too?? god i wish i didnt work or was a new arrival... oops wrong debate again...my appologies!! thanks for all your coments thus far...
  13. Hey sheffielders!! ive been reading the many other dentist threads, however still feel i need to ask some questions if i may? Ive never really liked going to the dentist but is not a major problem just more an inconvenience> :-( about 2 years back i broke a tooth and needed an emergency appointment so rung round loads of dentists and happened on one who had an appointment available ( off manor top across the tram tracks from netto) here are my quires- whats the difference between NHS dentists and private- im assuming obviously the cost etc im in full time work aged 30 so... if i went to an NHS one would it be cheaper that private?? does anyone know if the dentist in question(near manor top) is any good?? do dentists rip you off with cost of treatment etc?? im needing another appointment soon, pain from another broken tooth and was afraid id go, then them look in my mouth then say , yes you need that looking at, then book me in for the following week, and bang a hefty "ive just looked in your mouth" charge... etc thanks so much for reading and would appreciate anyones help/advice/opinions etc regards john
