Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.

Ok, lets start with what are you using to communicate with me? Your computer? If so please tell me how you surf the internet, what application do you use? IE, Firefox, Chrome or Safari? That is the browser that was mentioned by the first expert.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

PLEASE RXCUSE A LOT AF MY IGNORANCE--I AM NEW AT THIS

MY BROWSER--FLASHPEAK SLIMBROWSER

Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.
Ok, that is a new one , never heard of it until now.
Please tell me what happens when you click this link→http://www.youtube.com/activate

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
IT DOES NOT RESPOND
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.

I suggest using a different browser like IE and see what happens. You are using Windows so it should be easy to find.

Let me know what happens.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
ALL I GET IS MY YOUTUBE PAGE--BUT NO PAGE TO ACTIVATE MY TV CODE
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.
You are trying to get youtube to work on your TV correct?
The TV is connected to the network in some way? Is it able to access the internet?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

YOUTUBE WORKS OTHE INTERNET.. HOWEVER TOGET MY THINGS ON THE YOUTUBE TV I HAVE TO ACTIVATE---IT HAS WORKED BEFORE;SO I KNOW IT'S POSSIBLE

I JUST CAN'T REACH THE PAGE TO ENTER THE CODE

Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.

You do have the code needed?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i have the code

how do iclick on that link?

Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.
Try clicking and dragging your mouse over it to highlight it all. Then copy it by right clicking and selecting that option. Now click in the browsers address field and right click again and select Paste.
If it does not work then your ISP needs some help.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

the link didn't resdond

on the bottom it said web site found awaiting response---never happened

Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.
Ok, I suggest marking this page as a favorite and restarting your computer. Then see if it will allow you activate.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
