Re: TV Repair - Dislpay not working !

My Samsung 46" that I paid $1k for is acting up too, but I fear a 7 year old TV is elderly these days, and not worth repairing.

I'll never buy a Samsung product again, my 10 year old Samsung fridge is on it's 3rd motherboard and is rusting out around the ice dispenser.

brewster I like it. Stops the through traffic very nicely.

But it requires support from EZ Pass and the state. Possible, but the Fulup / Murphy feud won't help.

Google the model and type "bad capacitors" often the issue - likely can easily change bad board can get on ebay. If handy you can even change bad capacitors with soldering gun

I've said this before, all you'd need to do to eliminate much of the through traffic is create a 1 hr EZ pass lockout or big surcharge at the Holland for anyone exiting the TPK at exits 14 A, B or C before the 12th st ramp. They'd need to put pass readers past the Columbus ramp, but the rest is software. Yes, cash payers can avoid it, but that brings it's own time penalty.

The tag system would never work here, our cops don't do traffic enforcement, apparently it's beneath them.

If your TV is not hanging from the wall, you could place a small fan discreetly behind it to keep it from overheating. I've done such successfully for TVs, computers, and printers.

I'm not a legal beagle, but my understanding is that it is possible for Leonia as they rightly claimed it was a public safety hazard - creating a sufficient bottleneck for fire, emt, and police travel.

There's Tons of traffic jumps off 78 at Columbus ave, down Christopher Columbus, to Marin (and Erie to a lesser degree). No benefit to JC. Actually a cost due to traffic police and road wear.

The downside is that anyone driving into JC for business now has a problem. This includes the employees and anyone attending one off meetings. This isn't acceptable.

Alternatives?

Don't allow turns onto 12th street during rush hours. That would stop the through traffic, but locals can't drive to the Holland. Not much better.

A ban on through traffic. That's the real problem. We want people to come to JC. Even during rush hours. But only if they are coming to JC and not using JC just to cut in line at the tunnel.
How to enforce? Add cameras on the 78 CC exit, and the entrances to the tunnel. We might need to add one at the 78 LSP exit too.

Of course there will be legal challenges.....

Had similar (same?) issue with a Sony display some years ago. It happened within a year or two of ownership but, luckily, it was a Costco purchase, so the repair was free.

As I remember it, the panel would overheat (turns out the vivid setting, or any picture settings combination that involves using high contrasts and brightness, results in too much heat being generated) and after extended usage, the panel essentially burnt out. The repairman brought a new one and swapped it. It was a super quick fix, but disappointing that TVs advertised to be able to display "blacker" blacks, or praised for the vividness of their picture, are unable to do so for long periods without dying. Six years later (four after the repair) the TV is still going, but during Summer months, it will sometimes overheat and shuts off.

I don't think anyone knows for certain whether it's legal. That would need to be hashed out in the courts.

I'm also certain there will be nothing like this in DTJC.

I'm not sure if/how it could work either. The Leonia one seems to limit on "residential streets". I'd love to see this where cars are limited to Columbus, Grand, Marin, etc. and not permitted on Monmouth and Erie. That's where the real nightmares are. But I'm not holding my breath.

When our Gov Christie screwed up I called him out. The LSP Marina project was an example. Not exactly 'reflexive partisanship'. In any case, would we have been better off with four more Corzine years, or four with Buono? Methinks not.

You don't merit an argument based on merit. Tony TP summed it up quite well: your reflexive partisanship, endless whataboutism, the fanboy, slavish nature of your devotion to the people you vote for kind of doesn't leave a lot of room to debate much of anything.

I don't need KY jelly for whatever Murphy does, because I have very low expectations of him. I am repulsed that in a state of 8.5 million people, with a disproportionately large number of successful, well educated folks that we end up with someone as undistinguished and inexperienced as The Murph. I will gladly point out his shortcomings as Governor, as they appear - all politicians have them; they all fail in some way or other. You just hope those failings are manageable. I don't know why it is so hard for some people to recognize the limitations in the people they support. Unless you are on the payroll or involved intimately, it's not a reflection of you.

Feds intend to retry Menendez and Melgen 'at the earliest possible date'

By MATT FRIEDMAN  - Updated 01/19/2018 05:26 PM EST

Two months after a jury failed to reach a verdict in the federal corruption case against Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez and co-defendant Salomon Melgen, the Justice Department on Friday said it wants to retry them — and soon.

“The United States files this notice of intent to retry the defendants and requests that the Court set the case for retrial at the earliest possible date,” reads the one-paragraph notice signed by AnnaLou Tirol, acting chief of the department's public integrity section. “Defendants Robert Menendez and Salomon Melgen have been indicted for bribery and corruption by two separate grand juries properly impaneled in the District of New Jersey. The first trial ended in a mistrial with a deadlocked jury. An early retrial date is in the best interests of the public, and the United States is available to schedule a retrial at the Court’s earliest convenience.”

Menendez, New Jersey's senior senator, is up for reelection this year.

Just because everyone with eyes and ears thinks Christie is trash doesn’t mean they think Murphy is all that great either. You just bring up Murphy or HRC constantly to deflect from valid points or criticisms being made about the corrupt people you blindly support without question.

Which is scary- you think everyone else really just picks a side and blindly supports them without question the way you do? People on here make obvious and valid points to you that you cannot defend so you lash out at whoever they told you the enemy is today. You really sound like you’ve been abused.

None of that was an insult it was simply an observation based on what you publically put out there. You constantly make excuses for people that blatantly show through their actions that they don’t care about others (or you) and you fall over yourself trying to defend them even when it’s not in your best interest to do so. It doesn’t make sense.

When someone points that out to you, you then try to attack whoever you assume they must have voted for like they have the same blind devotion as you. I would never fall over myself trying to defend Murphy just because I ended up voting for him- I can see flaws in almost every politician I’ve had to vote for and I can admit that without having to deflect to their opponent.

7 reasons why Newark has a shot at winning Amazon

Joan Verdon, Staff Writer
Jan. 18, 2018

[FILTERED]
Take a quick tour of the new Amazon Books store that just opened at the Westfield Garden State Plaza.

Newark has made it to the finals in the contest to be picked as the home of the second headquarters of e-commerce giant Amazon. And even though it's up against metropolitan powerhouses like Miami, New York and Boston, there are some good reasons why the odds could be in Newark's favor.

1. Planes, trains, ships and automobiles
Newark checks all the transportation and infrastructure boxes Amazon is looking for in a headquarters city, unlike some of the other 19 contenders on the list. It has a major international airport, it has a port that handles most of the container ships arriving on the East Coast, and it is close to major highways. It has subways and other trains that link it to Manhattan.

2. New York without New York prices
Newark would give Amazon executives a perfect perch from which to mastermind new ways to deliver to, and sell to, the residents of the Big Apple, the ultimate urban test case for any retailer, but without Big Apple rents or traffic jams.

3. We're the warehouse state
As Amazon knows all too well, New Jersey is a dream location for e-commerce warehouses and fulfillment centers. It has opened a number of huge warehouses here over the past decade and is looking to open more. While the new headquarters doesn't need to be near Amazon warehouses, the proximity gives executives an easy way to test new logistics innovations.

4. Access to talented workers
Newark has colleges that offer Amazon a feeder system of some 60,000 young people looking for jobs, as well as access to tech workers from New York and research hubs in Princeton and New Brunswick.

5. Return on investment
Amazon is smart about money, and investing in land and buildings in Newark is more likely to yield a return than in cities where the land prices and rents are much higher. Newark also has more space available for redevelopment than many of the other contenders.

6. Don't bet against Booker
Newark booster Sen. Cory Booker can be mighty persuasive. Starting with his years as mayor and continuing while in the Senate, he has convinced lots of businesses to take a chance on Newark. His current star power could help seal the deal.

7. Seven billion reasons
Finally, there is the little matter of the tax incentives. New Jersey has promised Amazon $7 billion in state and local tax breaks if they come to Newark. Gov. Chris Christie made that offer, and his successor, Phil Murphy, has spoken out against corporate tax breaks. But Murphy on Thursday seemed to be backing the Amazon bid, saying in a statement that "we are going to continue to press our case for Amazon to come to Newark."

While the former governor had declined to identify where these monies originated, Democratic leaders said Tuesday that a nonpartisan review of the transfers shows that $39.4 million came from school construction and other education-related accounts, including programs designed to expand preschool and provide grants for college students.
