Hi everyone -
I purchased a digital photo frame for my grandparents for Christmas from Best Buy - it was an Insignia branded frame 8 inches in size from Best Buy (I know, I know...). I have the 10 inch one in my living room and it works just fine and it actually looks pretty good.
Anyway, I pulled images down from my SmugMug site on my parents' computer and loaded them to the frame. After cycling through several images it would just display a bunch of colored lines shooting up and down the screen and turn off after a random interval and after displaying random images. I returned it twice and had the same issue with all 3 so I had enough and spent significantly more money on a 10 inch HP version.
Thinking my problem was solved by opening my wallet, I pulled down most of the same images (but new files) to my own machine at home and proceeded to load them. After a few minutes this new one got to a certain point (never the same image) and just turned off.
I just about took the frame and tossed it through the window...my dogs ran away because I made noises I usually only make when they destroy something important. Any ideas what's going on here?
The respective support folks have been worthless and I'm out of options...I just don't get it - any experience or quick fixes?
