I can't get imovie to open after trying to shift the image to my TV by clicking fn F3.  If I hold the mouse on the imovie icon for a few seconds the imovie window opens but if I click anywhere on the window it disappears

I can't get imovie to open after trying to shift the image from my macbook pro to the tv screen like I have done many times before.  If I double click on the imovie icon, imovie doesn't open, but the strip across the top shows iMovie, file, edit , clip, view, text share window help tabs across the top.  The iMovie window will appear if I click on the iMovie icon on the dock for a few seconds, or if I do control F3 at the same time, but when I click on the window it disappears.  When I hover the mouse over the iMovie window that appears the window has a blue border around it.  when I move the mouse outside the iMovie window the blue border goes away.  If I sweep 4 fingers from the top of the screen down, the screen dims a little but the iMovie window doesn't appear. If I click play under the view tab I can hear audio, but still no iMovie window.  It's as if the window is being blocked by the desk top somehow.

I purchased five movies for download and having nothing but problems getting them downloaded. I keep receiving error messages and the download stops and I have to restart it, just to get another minute worth of download with each restart. Now Apple has my money and I have nothing.

  • Dock disappears for a few seconds and minimized apps open up

    Hello
    My dock at the bottom of the display will disappear for a few seconds and at the same time, my minimized open applications will open up. This usually happens when I'm running a few light applications at once. It almost seems to "gulp" or catch it's breath.
    I'm not sure if this is related but for the second time since purchasing the machine the dock is showing a sort of double reflection at the very bottom. An open application has what looks like two lit triangles underneath the icon instead of the usual one triangle. The same area at the bottom of the dock shows a very tiny "bottom" of the page I have open, in this case Safari. It also moves left and right as I move the open page left and right. If I move the page down, the sliver at the bottom of the dock moves up.
    This is only the second time this has happened. The first time it went away on it's own and today it's back. It's not troublesome at all but I'm just wondering what may be causing these symptoms.
    Thanks!

    Hello,
    '''Try Firefox Safe Mode''' to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.
    ''(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)''
    * On Windows you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the '''Shift''' key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
    * On Mac you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the '''option''' key while starting Firefox.
    * On Linux you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by quitting Firefox and then going to your Terminal and running: firefox -safe-mode (you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
    * Or open the Help menu and click on the '''Restart with Add-ons Disabled...''' menu item while Firefox is running.

    ''Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"''
    [[Image:Safe Mode Fx 15 - Win]]
    '''''If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] article for that.

  • HT201210 on my iPad I get an image of the USB connection and an arrow pointing to the itunes icon for a few seconds then it switches off.  connected  to itunes via USB get a message that itunes has detected an ipad in recovery mode must restore when i do

    When I havent got my ipad connected to a power supply I get an image on my ipad of the usb cable with an arrow pointing to a itunes icon and no matter what you try and do iyt stays on that for a few seconds and then switches off the ipad, connecting it through usb into itunes on my PC (XP) this image says on the screen but I get a message on itunes saying itunes has detected an ipad in recovery mode and mneeds to be restored - when I fire off the restore through itunes after a few minutes it comes back and says it cannot restore and give an error message 1603.  I have also repeated the process through my wife's laptop (Vista) and get the same situation -it is an 32GB Ipad 3 purchased last November -  any ideas ?

    Try and turn off iPad/iPod and proceed to step 3 of Recovery Mode.
    Recovery Mode
    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    3.While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears, release the Home button. iTunes should alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then click Restore to restore the device.
    Note: Data will be lost. You may have to repeat the above many times.

  • I cannot watch any TV shows on Itunes. The episode will play for a few seconds and then freeze and skip forward randomly. I have a Windows 7 PC and I didn't have problems before the Itunes 11 update. Any ideas?

    After updating to ITunes 11 a while back, I am no longer able to watch TV shows on my laptop. If I try to watch an episode, it freezes and then skips forward randomly. I have a Windows 7 laptop and I didn't have any problems before ITunes 11.

    I don't use a graphics card, I use on board graphics as my computer case is too small to fit a graphics card inside.
    There are no effects applied to the clip, only one layer of video and 1 layer of audio (both from the same file). The video is in MP4 format at 720p.
    Before I rendered the sequence, I had a yellow bar above the sequence. Also, I imported the same clip into CC Standard and it played fine (also had a yellow bar) with no lag.
    I think I've fixed the issue now as rendering the sequence made the video play smoothly with no apparent issues.
    If any other clips have lag or any other problems in CC 2014, I'll just import them into CC standard and see if that works.

  • Vado HD showed a charging icon for a few seconds, but now gone...

    I just received my Vado HD. Could really use some help.
    Plugged it into the usb cord, saw what looked like a battery meter and a few other things for a second or two, then they went away. The curved red light around the lense is on, but I have no idea if this thing is dead or needs somehow to be charged for many hours to show anything (seems wrong since it did show up for a second).
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for the time,

    When you try to press any button on the Vado HD while it is connected to the computer, does the screen turns on and is battery meter still moving on the upper right (red/green bar moving)? If it does, then it's normal. Leave the Vado charging for a couple of hours.

  • Ipod touch 5th generation battery screen with lightning bolt locked cannot charge or restart.  ive tried everything from new cables attempting to shut down but stays at screen for a few seconds then black screen again over and over

    screen locked up and shows the battery with low red and ligtning bolt and cannot hard shut down or reset just stays there for a few seconds then black screen. hooked up to computer and itunes doesnt recognize it or even shows that it is pluged in.  looked and made sure nothing is broken or metal in ligting port or on cable which would prevent it from accepting a charge. ipod is only a month old and seems like a waste of money if its so hard to try to get an explanation of why this is ive been tryning to get an answer from apple for a week now.

  • Mac freezes for a few seconds

    Hello fellow Mac users,
    since a few days my MacBook Pro is running slow. It doesn't matter what I do, sooner or later the mac freezes (just showing the spinning wheel) for a few seconds and that happens very often, about every 2 minutes. The system runs on 15% workload. Starting Apps takes very long as well. I hoped that the troubleshooting page for Software problems of the Apple support homepage would help, but it did not.
    Additionally, the MacBook is not shutting down and if it does it takes very long.
    It doesn't matter if I start on a different account or start with the safe boot.
    I had this problem about a half a year ago. I just reinstalled OS X and it just worked fine. But I don't have time to do that again.
    Specs:
    Mac OS X 10.10.3
    MacBook Pro 15" Early 2011
    Intel Core i7 2 GHz
    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    AMD Radeon HD 6490M 256 MB
    500 GB SATA hard drive
    I would be very thankful for every kind of help.

  • Audio briefly drops out for a few seconds

    I about half way through a recorded Keynote presentation, the narration audio drops out (goes blank) for a few seconds. It doesn't affect timing.
    I've checked the narration file and it's just fine. Narration was done in Garageband. I've re-recorded the presentation again, and it drops out at exactly the same place. The narration was done in one step, so it's not a problem with the method in Garageband.
    Keynote 9, v 5.3. 27" iMac, OSX 10.8.5, 16Gb Ram.
    Any ideas of how to solve it?
    Many thanks,
    Bill

    Unfortunately there's no fix for this problem that plagues Classic since release. Considering that a new generation appeared I guess we have no reason to expect a fix anymore.
    I also have the problem and it makes the iPod Classic less desirable to be used as a music player than a generic $10 (no name) usb stick.

  • HT1725 ive purchased a few songs recently, and when i play certain ones back, they only play for a few seconds then stops, what do i do about this?

  • My iPhone is getting stuck for a few seconds everytime I do something,  if i type a letter it will type it twice or a few times, if i click to close the browser it stucks there for a few seconds before closing, if i try to open some app it gets stuck ther

    My iPhone is getting stuck for a few seconds everytime I do something,  if i type a letter it will type it twice or a few times, if i click to close the browser it stucks there for a few seconds before closing, if i try to open some app it gets stuck there.
    I have restored it and loaded the backed up material again. But this problem doesnt seem to go away. Sometimes it is too much sometimes it is not noticeable, so what exactly could be wrong and what ALL should I do to get it fixed?  Please reply.

    Thank you. You are very kind. First I backed everything up, then restored as a new phone, and then i couldn't see the contacts, the contacts were not restored when i restored as a new phone. So in order to get the contacts I restored from the backup but then the same problem happened again.
    What I meant to saw was that the probelm disappeared when i restored as a new phone, but it reappeared when i restored from the backup. So is there a way to just somehow get the old contacts when the phone is restored as a new phone. All I need from the current phone is the contacts to be there when I retore as a new phone.
    I hope I am clear.
    Kindly help
