    Help Needed: 'Protect' Flashing on Receiver

    I unplugged all of the wires from the receiver, unplugged it (overnight) and then plugged it into a different outlet this moring. I'm still getting the Protect message. I assume the receiver is shot. It's over 15 years old.

    Help Needed: 'Protect' Flashing on Receiver

    Thanks John. I'll try unpugging it. I'll check the speaker connections again too. If neither work, is there anything else it can be ?

    Help Needed: 'Protect' Flashing on Receiver

    I went to turn on my receiver to watch a dvd and Protect is flashing. No sound will not come on. I looked in the manual and it says that it means that there is a short somewhere. I disconnect each speaker one by one and tried to turn on the receiver but I always got the Protect...

    Inground Sprinkler Help Needed

    Thanks Dennis. The solenoid has 2 black wires coming off it going to other wires that are capped. When I put the new one in does it matter which wire from the solenoid goes to the other capped wires ? From what I could see there were no marking on the solenoid to distinguish one wire from...

    Inground Sprinkler Help Needed

    Dennis, Could you post a picture of what it looks like ? Is it the piece where 2 wires are coming out of ? Where could I get a new one from ? This is what mine looks like. How much of this (or all) do I need to replace ?

    Inground Sprinkler Help Needed

    I turned the valve for zone 3 manually and they did come on. I switched the zone 3 wire in the control box to zone 4 but it still didn't come on. I also checked for loose connections in the valve box. Now what ?

    Inground Sprinkler Help Needed

    Scott, I've been checking for puddles and don't see any. That zone suppose to come on for 40 minutes so if it was a leak I think I would have seen it by now. Where is the valve box located ? Is it the underground box ?

    Paul, Thanks. I'll check the wiring on the controller and the pump. I hope it's something like that instead of a broken line somewhere.

    Inground Sprinkler Help Needed

    I've had inground sprinklers for about 7 years now without any problems. I just noticed my backyard wasn't getting watered. I tested each zone (I have 3) and zone 3 isn't working at all. The other 2 zones work fine. Anyone have any idea what the problem could be ?

    Done with Home Depot, from now on it's Lowe's

    Ron I couldn't agree more with you. I've never liked HD. There's never anyone around to help you, there only one or 2 check out lines open at a time, the store is filthy and if you ever had to return anything good luck. There's only one register and about 15 people on line waiting. A new...

    Survivor: Fiji

    Mike, I was saying the same thing. It made sense to play it last night. He knows that everyone knows he has it and they want to force him to use it. If he would have used it last night it would have taken the target off his back. Now next week, his going to be the target again.

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    From next week's previews: I have a feeling that it's not Ben in the wheelchair with a bag over his head but Locke's father. I think Locke's going to try and get Sawyer to kill him because he can't. (Admin note - spoilers added)
