    This is a question for the pro side of the site. After 209 posts, if you're a pro, you should submit your papers for review and get access to the pro side where you can get questions like this answered. Asking from the open side makes it appear you're a HO and we aren't allowed to help DIYers. So do youself a favor and get onto the pro side.
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    Did the problem start right after the electrical upgrade.
    If so, call the electricians back, they changed some thing.

    There are other things to check that would tell you, but as skip said, we not allowed to go into detail in this forum.

    Newbeetech.........

    You may be a pro, but as someone else said, for highly technical discussions you must be a Pro Member and they must be held in the Pro Forums.

    I suggest you apply for Professional Membership Status.

    Please apply Here!

    Thanks!

    Gah, my first reply was moderated.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Mark,

    It was a very informational post, and most likely the correct answer also as I remember.

    But it was too much info for this open forum............

    Sorry bud, no hard feelings huh?

    I'm sure this will open a flood of criticism for me but, I really get annoyed when I read posts from "techs" that are supposed to be educated and informed about this industry (even newbies) and they can't even spell properly. If I received a work invoice from someone that did a repair at my home that was full of incorrectly spelled words I would question his/ her abilities and qualifications to perform adequately. Perhaps I am just getting too old and frustrated and should keep my opinions to myself but in my older years it's the little things that are getting to me and I needed to vent a little. So, for all of those out there that have a problem with my comments...have at it. I have a very thick skin.
