    I have the issue.....of course it starts with the wife...but either way my router won't power on...I tried another adaptor from my modem, and I saw the lights come on....unfortunately the the router is 5v and the modem is 12v so it appears something else may have burned....but either way power did make its' way through...so apparently it maybe just the adaptor plug/wire and I'll try and see if that can be ordered.

    I have had 2 linksys routers that have had power cords/adapters go "bad" after only about 8-9 months. According to Linksys, the warranty for a router is only 6 months. Pretty pathetic warranty. No wonder it isn't listed on the box. The only reason I no longer use the previous router is that it wasn't wireless, and now that we are wireless I'm purchasing a second, generic power cord so we can get back online. I hate to waste the $80 spent on the router and just jump to another brand so I'll just moan and complain about having to buy a $15 replacement and tell everyone I can. haha

Could it be that the power adaptor is burned?
Use another one.

I have a 55" Panasonic flat screen that won't turn


Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

My nc6400 won't power up even when connected to a power adapter. How can I fix this?


Since you already tried another power cord (assuming that it was a working cord and for the exact same model). Then I would say your motherboard is dead.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !


If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

My panasonic TH42PX60U won't power up. No red light flashing. Completely dead. I tried unpluging and using different power outlets. Still nothing. Any help?


1. Check all cable and input connections are secure & all are tightly connected.
2.Check power cords and also power outlet , if possible try to unplug and reconnect . A replacement of power cable or use another power outlet is another good option.
3. If you are sure that power is reaching your TV(check it out with a test lamp that both neutral & ground or earthing is functioning, i.e. the test lamp glows) then probably the power board needs replacement.

I cannot get my Lexmark 5600-6500 to turn on


Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer.

Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the power cord into the power outlet in the wall (bypass any power strip) and the power adapter into the printer. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Unplug the power cord from any surge protectors or power strips.
3. Select a wall outlet to plug the product into. Test the wall outlet by plugging another electric appliance, such as a lamp, into the wall outlet and turning it on. Unplug the test appliance.
4. Plug the power cord into the back of the product.
5. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
6. Press the Power button to turn the product on.
7.Now check if its already working.
