"User has checked cables"

Yeah, right


They've checked them so much that if you ask them to unplug them, then blow on the end and plug them back in it always solves the problem.

Obviously blowing on the end of the cables does nothing and you could just say "check the cables are pushed in properly", but the users don't do that whereas they will unplug it to pointlessly blow on them, and plugging it back in then solves the problem.
