Anyone awake? My TV froze at midnight when ITV3 went off air. Left stuck with last frame of the film that was on when it went off. Any ideas ?

MASTER RESET!!
Sounds like a software hang up. Often caused by the decoder / HDMI coder (Set Top Box?) getting too hot after long period of continuous use.
Switch off TV and any Set Top box.
Disconnect all from the mains.
Wait at least 10 minutes.
Reconnect and switch on again.
If problem persists switch all off again. Leave for a few hours to cool down. Try again.
If still nowt - Call Service Number!
Good luck.
Cheers, Doug 😎
PS Try another channel first! Maybe the decoder just doesn't like decoding noise! Not a problem here cos nothing goes off air at night!
Have had that effect with overheating though.

Tried all those Doug. No set top box. Left off but heard a slight crackle after I switched back onwhich gave me the idea. Pulled aerial out and gave it a good wiggle putting it back in. Thanks anyway Mate

Here you go--https://www.banggood.com/MINIQ-BG-5156E-Bench-Drill-Stand-71... looks good. Got mine from Netto £20 when they were pulling out. Had loads of bargains from them over their sojourn here. I always managed to find a little fault and got managers discount. 50% or more usually.

When this first popped up it was £46. Funny how it's jumped up. Good reviews and seems good value though. Certainly looks well made.👍

Inflation caused by imposition of excessive Import Duties!
Situation SEEMS to have calmed down after Junker's visit to the White House. 😎 Only snag is; I'm not in the least interested in importing soya beans from the US 😁😁😁

Hmm! Then I'll stick with what I've got😲
What justification can they have for that??
Was too popular I suppose. 🤔
Thanks anyway John 👍
Interesting: £108.55 , Free shipping, from the Canadian store, £77.47 plus £19 shipping from the US store!!
Have we upset our Canadian brothers somehow!?

She passed teatime yesterday in her sleep. She was all black too hence her name UMBRA/ Latin for shadow. Her pal ESMERELDA is looking all over for her She used to see my GF. off to work She could tell the time within 5 mins and would wait by the front door for her then follow her as far as the main road. Once Marg was across she come home and let herself in the back door. Never could get her to close it behind her. BTW that drill has gone down again.👍 I'm a big softie too
