Press 9 and 0 or + and- at the same time for 3-5 secs and see if it unlocks...if not let me know.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!

The site charges anywehre between 15-30 dollars per individual question, that is the only way they can keep techs like me working on the site assisting customers saving them a $100 service call. The only I receive any credit is only after a good rating is given by using the Finish rating link and it is just a one time charge.

Hi there,
I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, I am not credited anything until a good star rating is supplied I would really appreciate it if you could do that thanks!
