Hi @ruggb ,

I think that either you or the OP may have transposed the number of the error code.

The OP states F21 and not F12.



Sorry bout that. I don't know what to blame it on.

However, another SEARCH on the INTERNET brought up a number of answers. I just don't know why people ask the question b4 doing a search, DO YOU?



Answer to your question "I just don't know why people ask the question b4 doing a search, DO YOU?" : Why wear out my brain when I can use yours for free. ;-)

My question is why do people ask questions and then don't respond at all to any answers/comments?



Well, I guess I need to thank you for staving off my Alzheimer's. I need all the help I can get. Sorry about your early diagnosis.
