  1. They probably meant that the power supply circuit within the TV is not working properly. This is often due to old electrolytic capacitors. Sounds like you need to get it repaired. Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJe7peNcfiQ
  2. I use Bitdefender a/v and it is generally very good, but it does have one feature I had to disable as it was causing all sorts of different problems. The 'Advanced threat defense' had to be switched off, it attempts to analyse the actions a piece of software is carrying out to try to identify virus-like behaviour; it doesn't work very well.
  3. Things to consider: 1. You may want a domain name of your own, like bobthebuilder.co.uk, you will have to pay a small amount every year or two for the domain name 2. You may want an email address of the form something@bobthebuilder.co.uk, the email hosting will have an annual cost, or you could automatically redirect the email to an existing account usually for free 3. For a webpage you will need web hosting which will have an annual cost. There may be some sites that will host for free, but check the T&Cs 4. Many web hosting companies will have templates for different types of websites, or you could pay someone to design your own. If you want to accept payments from the website there may be additonal costs for that Basically it can get complicated, but there are companies like wix.com who may be able to do everything. I suggest you go to checkatrade and check out some of your competitors web sites. Usually at the bottom of the website there will be a link to the company that designed the website.
  4. I heard that if you have an Intel processor it has to be at least an 8th gen processor, so if you bought your computer before about April 2018 you won't be able to run Windows 11.
  5. Did this phone work properly on WiFi before having BT installed? One possibility is that you are using one of the more aggressive power saving modes on the phone, which may turn off the phone's wifi connection when the phone goes to sleep. When the phone is woken up it may take a short while to reconnect to the wifi network. Instructions for checking power saving mode: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/samsung/samsung-galaxy-a10/power-saving-mode/ Another option is that the BT router has both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks with the same name, which can sometimes cause issues. To change to separate wifi networks follow the instructions in the video below. At 0:42 in the video turn on the 'Separate bands' switch (near right hand side of screen) and set the Network name for the 5GHz band so it is different to the 2.4GHz band (you can just chnage 1 letter if you want). You don't have to change the password.
  6. You can have more than one paypal account, but you need a different email address and bank account for each paypal account.
  7. Do you have 2.4GHz and 5GHz wifi networks with the same name? Some devices can get confused by this.
  8. In the past when cutting and cooking onions my eyes would always sting and run, but now this no longer happens, I have no problems at all with onions. Have my eyes somehow become onion-proof, or are modern onions different to the old fashioned ones?
  9. The clickplan website says: How can I unsubscribe the newsletters? All our newsletters have in the upper part a link where you can unsubscribe or adjust frequency options. Have you checked th newsletter carefully?
  10. Best: Working on the games (hoopla, cat rack, pick-a-winner, horse races, etc) at a seaside pleasure park in the early 80's. Loved it. Worst: Working part-time in the kitchens at a holiday camp for 4 hours each day. My job was to transfer huge stacks of dirty breakfast plates and dishes from large metal bins onto a conveyor belt. The conveyor would slowly take the dishes through an open-ended dishwasher. I then had to take the scalding hot clean plates from the other side and stack them onto another trolley. It was incredibly hot, I sweated so much my glasses kept slipping off. My hands were covered in blisters from the hot plates (gloves were difficult to use as they would transfer dirt from the dirty plates to the clean ones). By the early afternoon I was exhausted, dehydrated, drenched in sweat baked bean sauce and egg yolk and unable to use my hands. Absolutely horrible job.
  11. Doesn't the link below give you what you want: https://photos.google.com/
  12. My Mum was terrified of going to the dentist after some unpleasant visits as a girl. She had hypnosis and goes to the dentist regularly now.
  13. No more 321 on Three either. The cheapest traditional PAYG sim now is from 1pmobile, but you need to top up at least £10 every 120 days. Edit: 1pmobile use the EE network.
  14. The Fire TV 4K is on sale today, just £35. I find it to be very reliable, apart from needing a factory reset every year or so to clear down the storage. The 4K Roku stick is also great, and has a much better less cluttered interface.
  15. Windows 10 no longer supports Twain, but there is a workaround: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/twain-drivers/f45625ae-896b-431c-966e-574d27b9f9cf
