Richard is having trouble printing wirelessly with his new router. Rich says to reinstall the printer drivers. Reset your printer. And try installing the app that your Epson printer offers.
Bob wants to know how long will it be before Android adopts the EKG/ECG medical reading technology like on the Apple Watch Series 4. Rich says it's a great technology, but it's not available yet. What is is the high heart rate and low heart rate notifications. So if you're willing to make a switch, it could be a life saver. When will it come to Android? Who knows. But probably not for another year.
Sue's Roku device won't let her log in anymore. Is this because she has DSL? DSL isn't the issue. You're likely using the wrong password. Try recovering your password. See if that works. Then change it.
GJ wants to know how to record over the air signals. Rich says that Amazon now has the FireTV Recast, which records over the air programs, and you can set it with AmazonEcho. Then you can stream them to all your devices via WiFi. But you need an antenna.
There were a lot more unique gadgets at Interbike 2018 than bikes. InMotion's latest invention that takes the concept of a hoverboard and splits it into two independent machines; one for each foot! The company says it's a totally new experience that feels more like rollerskating with the freedom to zip around at will and that Hovershoes X1 are easier to learn and safer than hoverboards. It's a challenge to get the hang of balancing them, but younger users have no problems.
Sherry is looking for an affordable Chromebook, budget $350. Rich says that to be sure you don't get one so cheap, that it's underpowered. Acer makes a good model in that price range. Also, get one that has a touch screen so that you can use Android apps. Unfortunately, Chromebooks won't let you install third party apps other than those Android apps, but if you can live with that, Rich recommends going to Costco and pick up one. They're a great deal, so you can get more bang for your buck. Can I connect to the internet with my mobile phone and the chromebook?
Dan would like to get a doorbell that can not only notify his parents with video when someone is at the door, but can also unlock the door remotely. Rich says there are products that do one or the other, but not a lot that can do both. RING is a great video doorbell, that you can view remotely on your mobile device. NEST IQ has face detection, and could unlock your door. But you don't want something fully automated. Plus, will Jack's parents really want to deal with the technology involved?
Rico is trying to replace the cracked LCD screen on his MacBook Air. He's having issues with the LCD layers underneath the glass. Where can he buy a replacement part for that? Rich says that Rico should go to iFixIt. They not only show you how to fix issues like that, but they also offer the parts and tools to do it. Another option is to buy a broken MacAir for parts. Another option is to check OWC at MacSales.com. They have parts as well, but mostly for upgrades.
Carl transferred some podcast audio from one computer to another and it won't play one the other computer hard drive, just on the USB drive. What gives? Rich suspects a format issue. It's sounds like it isn't a standard MP3 file, and as such, your windows mp3 player is having issues playing it. Rich also says you may want to try converting the audio using VLC or handbrake. Another possibility is that it requires some sort of "key" to play the audio. Or additional components.
Eric wants to buy a color laser printer and he doesn't really know what model to get. He needs one that has a document feeder and scanner. Rich says that HP makes the WireCutter's favorite color laser printer. But one thing you want guard against is the printer companies are forcing users to use proprietary printer ink cartridges.
