    more than likely the protection capacitors in the power suppy have burst, this is designed to happen to protect the rest of the system in the event of a surge.

    You will pay someone more than what the power supply is worth to fix it.

    you can order one here http://www.newtechservicescanada.com/ or somewhere similar for about 60 dollar plus shipping..

    HP asks about 100 for the HP brand of this power supply.

You can find power supplies online (newegg or tigerdirect) for less than $40, sometimes with free shipping. I would guess that is the problem. Hopefully the power supply went out and it didn't ruin the motherboard.

How to reset electric box after vacuum cleaner blew power out


One of your circuit breakers is tripped internally and didn't trip the handle. You'll need a voltmeter to find the defective breaker and replace it.

1999 Crown turned ignition switch to start - heard pop - no electrical power


If nothing works including the lights, something happened between the battery and the fuse box.
There are some fuseable links between the battery and the starter solenoid or between the solenoid and the fuse box.
I'd start with the battery cables and look for those fuseable link wires.

My radio, wipers, power windows, and heating cooling switches all went out at the same time. i think it may be a relay? what else could be the problem?


It sounds like a fuse more than a relay. Check 'em; they look bad, blown. Correspondingly, replace fuses with gloves on, because you don't want it to scorch your fingers if the short's still there. Did you let a kid with a screwdriver check out the fusebox in the cabin? In that case it'd just be kind of missing. Still...something blew the fuse, right? Unless it was raining saltwater, there might be a wire or cable in a bad way, which would need some cleaning, restraint and electrical tape.

Switched the power on but switched the 230 setting on the back to 115 by mistake then it blew dont know what ive caused but could you help


You probably blew the fuse in the power box where the plug ,and 115/230 switch is. unit must be dissambled, as well as the power box. there should be a fuse inside. If you can't do it take it to a repair shop. If you can ,make sure the new fuse fuse is the same amperage.

Bake or broil does not work


if an element itself had shorted it would not stop the other from working and you could inspect each element and see blistering as evidence.the pop you heard has to be in common with both elements but not the cook top[burners]so thats going to be the wiring in the back of range, or switching,[thermostat,clock timer or oven selector switch,depends on which model you have]you will have to pull range and remove back pannels.you will find an obivous burn't connection.too repair all new connections must be clean and tight,or will burn again.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped
