Assuming you mean the AC adapter, it could either be the adapter or the power jack.
Try using your battery. If no power with that then its possible its the motherboard. If it works with the battery and not the adapter then try wiggling the wire on the adapter while powering on. Mine had a short within the adapter's wire, about 1 foot away from the tip of the adapter. I ordered a new adapter and it solved my problem.

also if you could be more specific as to what your problem is and any errors, etc, it would be more helpful.

Lost power to my house, came back on outlet has power clock on radio works radio has no power. wall clock on same outlet works fine


There is a battery backuo in the radio. This is probably powering the clock. It looks like the radio power supply is either fried or the hardwired fuse is blown.
Take a look at the manual. If you take out the battery back up does the clock still work? GPX MP3 Player KC232S user manual

Power outlet fuse


Check the connections to the outlet first. The 2 outlets have the same fuse. So, if one works then so should the other.

The power outlet in the front drivr side by the cup holder doesnt work.


The power outlets get their power from the power outlet relay. The power outlet relay gets its power from fuse #21 in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment. It is a 20 Amp fuse. If the other power outlet works, it is not caused by the relay or the fuse. You most likely would have a broken wire or defective power outlet in this case.

No power. Will not turn on


Not intended to offend;
1. If using A/C (house electrical power), please check if electrical wall outlet is active. Attempt to plug-in another electrical device such as a lamp, clock, radio, etc.. If the electrical wall outlet has top and bottom plugs, try the top and then the bottom plug to see which one works. Sometimes, the top outlet will not work, yet the bottom outlet does work. The wall outlet should be replaced by qualified technician.
2. If both outlets do NOT work, and the outlet is GFCI breaker protected, maybe pressing the RESET switch on the outlet will power-up the outlet.
3. If the outlet is NOT GFCI breaker protected, check your electrical fuse box for a tripped fuse. Sometimes, a tripped fuse is NOT visible. May have to trip the specific fuse or all fuses to off, then back on. Recheck the wall outlet.
4. Once your know the outlet is live, check the power cord (a/c adapter for laptops) to make sure they are securely plugged-in to both the wall outlet AND the PC or Laptop.

Will need more information once the above steps are taken:

Is it a Desktop or Laptop?
Make and Model (if known)?
Any lights (glowing) on the desktop or laptop?
Any lights on the A/C adapter if its a laptop?

2006 Dodge Dakota - power outlet doesn't work. The #28 fuse checks fine.


Take a 12v test light and wrap the probe with electrical tape, leave about
1/4" exposed. With the key on, ground the test light wire and insert the
probe into the outlet and touch it to the center power contact. If the light
stays out and you have a good ground, you don't have +power at the
outlet. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad wire or socket. But if it
lights up, we go to the next step. Touch the probe to a known +power
source and ground the wire to the metal side in the outlet. If you don't
get light, check the ground for the outlet socket. Repair as needed.
If it lights up, then you know you have power and ground. Check the
plug on the device you're trying to use. I hope I was of some help.
Good luck.

Refrigerator has lost power no eletric to inside light, not cooling not freezing


First , check if is power in the outlet where the fridge is plugged in by plugging something you know works (table light , radio,etc.) , if it doesn't work , means there's not power at the outlet what could be a trpped breaker , burnt fuse , burnt or loose wire at the outlet, or a bad outlet ; but if you got power in the outlet , probably the fridge cord or its plug are bad.

Fuses seem to be in tact but power outlet doesn't work. What next?


if the fuse is good, then remove the outlet and check for power and ground at the outlet. If they are both there, then you need to replace the outlet. Also sometimes the outlet won't get grounded off of the casing so it won't work, which you also need to replace the outlet. nine out of ten times you replace the outlet.
