RE: Brother Printer - DRAFT or Fast Mode

FYI - finally figured it out. The new laptop was using a generic Brother print driver. I uninstalled the printer and reinstalled and now it works great. I now have the options of Fast Normal or Best.

RE: Brother Printer - DRAFT or Fast Mode

My thought would be that since there are still three options, and two of them are the same as before, the third would also be the same, just a different name. So now "Fast" is named "Normal", works the same just different name. My thoughts anyway. Are these the drivers that come with Windows 10, or did you download drivers from Brother? Just a thought, but unless you're needing color for everything, pick up a laser printer. No ink to dry out, prints really fast, and cheap. thank you for trying but the normal is definitely not the same as what I used to have as draft/fast. takes much longer to print under normal and is definitely darker and using more ink. I reloaded the disc software that came with the printer.

RE: Brother Printer - DRAFT or Fast Mode

Probably the best information you're going to get is by Googling this: "Brother MFC-J480DW printer draft mode" been there done that and they all tell me how to get to the place where draft is not offered as a choice. thank you for trying.

Brother Printer - DRAFT or Fast Mode

I have a Brother MFC-J480DW printer. Been using it for years. love it. Laptop died. Got a new Acer Spin 3. Now my print quality options are Normal, Fine or Best. Used to be Fast, Normal, Best. Does anyone know how to get a Fast or Draft print option back? I can almost hear it sucking up all my ink when it prints now, plus it takes forever. I was running Windows 10 on the old laptop and still running Windows 10 on the new one too. Have a question in to Brother but they are backed up on replies. Thought I would try here just in case. Thank you for your time.

RE: Quicken upgrade

Hopefully this will help: https://www.quicken.com/support/patching-updates-windows Thank you for trying but that link only goes back as far as 2016 versions and I had a 2015 version

RE: Quicken upgrade

I still had my Quicken 2015 disk but without the old Mondo patch, it wouldn't open once I reloaded it to the new laptop. It required a password to reopen which I had but it won't accept it unless you had the Mondo patch to update the disk reload. I'm also a long time quicken user but I don't see any improvement in the subscription model.

Quicken upgrade

having a problem and thought I would ask here on the off chance you can help me. I just "upgraded" from Quicken 2015 to the subscription model. I have three after tax deductions from my monthly paycheck. One for $50, another for $1300 and the last one for $250.00. They appear correctly under Bills and Income Reminders. However under In/Out/What's Left they show up as $1000, $1100 and $1500 plus the net payment amount is incorrect too. I tried deleting the paycheck and adding it back in again with the same results. Any suggestions? I have also posted this on the Quicken Forum but not as sure about that site as I am about the users on here.

RE: Can a modified sine wave inverter damage rlectronics

is it possible that not all MSW inverters are created equal?

RE: Can a modified sine wave inverter damage rlectronics

lots of comments up above. I'll just add that sometimes it isn't just whether it will work or fry but it can be about whether it appears to work but turns out to shorten the life span of the item. We replaced our MSW with a Pure Sine Wave just because the microwave clock would hum very loudly when we were on inverter power. Weren't even using the microwave, just being plugged in, it would hum so much it was like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

RE: Rv park south of Atlanta

RE: Replace Dinette Set?

common in a 20 foot travel trailer, truck camper, 45 foot Class A, etc.? more details would give you a little better idea of what is commonly done.

RE: Driving through D.C.

The DC Metro system is reliable, affordable, generally safe and easy to navigate. Unless your daughters are younger than I'm assuming, I'd consider dropping them at the Greenbelt Metro station which is just off the beltway on the north side of the city and let them Metro in. Many hotels in the city are a quick walk from a Metro station. If not, Uber is an option. Good Advice. Find a metro station near your route and use the kiss and ride lane to drop your daughters off. No parking required.

RE: St. Louis to Central FL

The last several times we've made that trip (we're south of Miami right now) we've taken the route south to Memphis on I-55 to I-40/I-240 and then got off on US-78 toward Birmingham. US-78 turns into I-22 straight to Birmingham and I-65 to Montgomery. On the south side of Montgomery, take US-80 a short distance to US-231 south around Dothan and continue on US-231 toward I-10. (231 is all good 4 land divided highway except when you're going through a couple small towns) You can save a few miles by cutting off US-231 onto AL-73 and following it to get to I-10 or you can stay on US-231 till it meets up with I-10. Take I-10 east to I-75 south. That'll take you to the east side of Tampa. An option would be taking the Florida Turnpike to Orlando. There are no toll booths. If you don't have a transponder, they take a picture of your license plate and send you a bill for the toll plus a service charge. You can get the Florida SunPass to avoid the service charge or I'd recommend the E-Pass good in 18 states. Same toll rates. https://epass.cfxway.com/EpassWeb/Account/AccountFlow?accountFlow=GetEPASS https://www.sunpass.com/en/home/index.shtml Think you meant the EPass XTRA is good in 18 states. The EPass is only good in 3-4 states.

RE: Shower drain clog.

We take the cover off in the shower and pull out what we can. If that doesn't work well enough, we bring a hose inside the bedroom window and stick it down the drain with a towel wrapped around it to catch the spray. Then turn it on a little at a time. We do this about once a year and that works for us. We live in the coach year round so adapt your frequency based upon your own usage.

RE: Question about inverter transfer switch

We ended up adding an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) before each of our TV's and DVR's. Ours would only reboot about 50% of the time when switching between generator and inverter but as you say, it was annoying. Less than $40 each solved our problem https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001985SWW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Consumer Cellular Coverage

If it helps, here is the link to ATT coverage maps. link Att Be aware, ATT says they have coverage in my home area. They are sketchy on voice, and poor on data as well. Basically from my experience with all these companies, take their claimed maps and enlarge all the out of service areas somewhat since they all want to appear to have the best coverage. For your trip, you may want to get a second throw away phone (cheap android model) and set it up on Verizon on a pay as you go plan, between the two, you can usually get one to work at least close to where you want to be. Great minds think alike :) We have been discussing getting a Verizon Pay as you Go plan for the summer months.

Consumer Cellular Coverage

We will be traveling in the north east United States this summer. We have Samsung S10e cell phones with Consumer Cellular using AT&T sim cards. How likely are we to have coverage in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire? Just looking for feedback from those recently using Consumer Cellular with AT&T sim cards. Little background - we were full time from 2007 to 2014 using Verizon phones and data traveling all over the United States and Canada. 2014 to present we travel at least 6 months of the year so we are familiar with how unreliable campground wifi is and data limits on our phones works. We agree that Verizon coverage is the best but Consumer Cellular was significantly cheaper.

RE: Disney world in July

If you have the time, I would consider staying an extra day so you can go in the parks for 2 days, then have a down day by the pool in Fort Wilderness, then back to the park for 2 days. Lots of safe bike riding available around Fort Wilderness. Could check out some of the hotels on that down day. Staying in Fort Wilderness does really keep the commuting time down versus staying outside the park where the traffic can be very bad that time of year. Plus saving the cost of parking.

RE: Insurance - Increase Every Year About $100

my question would be why would you turn in a claim for $520? What is your deductible?
