I am sorry about this but the correct repair for this issue is replacement of 4 transistors on the main power board inside the monitor I just completed a repair on a dell 17 inch monitor it now works flawlessly. the process can be found on the internet and it is very delicate work. if you can all their service center you used then by all means call them,
And just fyi TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS THE SAME ASSCREAMING AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNG SOO PLEASE STOP AND USE CORRECT NETTIQUET.
you have a nice day now.

No power at all after an power outage


Before you investigate the TV and its power supply, have you confirmed that the outlet is still delivering the voltage? Sorry if I ask but you said you turned everything back on after the power failure and I didn't know if you meant equipment in the house or all circuit breakers in the house.

Main breaker can't be stitched back on after neighborhood power outage in our home, yet all the neighbors have power except us! Why are we the only ones without power?


You're trying to load the entire house on the main breaker all at once. There significantly less stress on the main breaker if you start it like this:

1) Shut off all the circuit breakers.
2) Turn on the main circuit breaker.
3) Turn the other circuit breakers on, one at a time.

Good luck!

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

No power to white rogers thermostat


Hi,
Either you blew the fuse on the air handler control board or you burnt out the air handler transformer.
The thing that blew the fuse is probably the contactor in the condenser unit. You will need to check out out cause of the outage before replacing the fuse or transformer.

After power outage, no power at all to kenmore


Check the breaker at the panel, it could be that you have more than just your fridge on the same circuit and the breaker blew or fuse when the power came on. You should only have the fridge on a circuit, the same goes for a freezer and microwave and water pump and sump pump. Nothing else on those circuits. One appliance only.

Power went off in the house and the washer won't start up


It is likely that the circuit breaker or fuse which sends power from your electrical panel to your washer overloaded when the power came back on and either kicked if it is a circuit breaker or blew if it is a fuse.

Look in the circuit panel. If you have breakers look for one that is about half way off. Turn it on and all the way off and back on again to reset it. If you have fuses look for a blown fuse and replace it with the same amperage fuse as the one in there now. good luck and let me know as if this isnt the problem I have additional steps for you to take. I want to help you get your machine up and running so let me know.

After a power outage, monitor won't turn on


Anytime there is an electrical surge the weakest part is the "Inverter" inside your monitor. It is two pencil size tubes that generates the DC power to the backlight of your monitor. Bring to repair shop and ask to look at the inverters. Once changed it will work fine
