Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) sneaks a repairman into the house after Joe (Joey Lawrence) declares he can fix the family’s computer, on an all-new episode of “Melissa & Joey,” airing Wednesday, February 4 (8:00PM ET/PT) on ABC Family.

In “Failure to Communicate,” it’s Ryder’s (Nick Robinson) 18th birthday, and the family gathers to video chat with him, but the computer crashes before they get a chance to talk. Joe insists he can fix it, but Mel is afraid they’ll run out of time, so she secretly hires a Jiffy Nerd computer technician behind Joe’s back.

Check out a preview and stills from “Failure to Communicate” below.
