@ Sandgrounder,

I was logged in when I rang up.

Thanks George, I did wonder about that.

@ Sandgrounder,

When I ring the free number, I'm asked for a six digit number, from where?

@ XD351, When you try to pay for an item on ebay and ebay tries to link to paypal .

Using Win10 desktop PC.

Hello everyone,

I've had no access to my PayPal account for a week, to date.

Confirmed an item on EBay, then was denied access to PayPal​, error 70360.

I've tried proving my I.D, and had no response from ​PayPal.

Googled error 70360, I'm not on my own.

Tried removing cookies, to no avail.

Any suggestions welcome.

Regards, Bear..

Thread: Replacement Paint Cans

Talking of paint tins, three weeks ago I was trying to get the lid off a small tin of boat varnish hardener.

As the lid was being prised off, there was a loud bang, the lid hit and cut my nose, just below my specs bridge.

The contents were solid. Moral of story, cover lid with a cloth.

A few months ago I changed the battery, now the first "auto" time does not work in auto (does in manual). Another £50 worth of rubbish.​End quote. If your timer operates in a similar fashion to plug-in timers, try switching it from ON to AUTO, rather than switching it from OFF to AUTO. Good luck.

Hi Norm,

Can you compare the old bridge against the new one, with your DVM.

If they are identical, then suspect fault elsewhere.
