Hi, check your power switch on back of the tower, make sure its on. Check the cable for damage, make sure power outlet is working. If this is all ok, then your fuse in your powersupply probably went. Dont bother replacing it. just get a new power supply, seeing as they are only around 20$ i think.

My 99 dodge status 2.4 liter is not getting any

check for codes in the PCM just because the sensors are plugged in doesn`t mean they are working. check for power getting to the coil packs if this is good then check to see if the ground circuit is good and reference voltage is good at the coils. the PCM grounds the coil packs and monitors the reference voltage the power is supplied when the key is turned on. just some places to start

My 91 honda accord acts like it has a rev limiter at 2500 RPMs. anybody ever hear of that?

I would suggest you change out the fuel filter and then try it, if that doesn't change anything then pressure test the fuel pump to see if it is putting out the correct pressure, low fuel pressure causes this type of symptom

My 32 inch Sharp Aquos acts like it isn't plugged in..The power light doesn't even come on...

Can you take the back off the set and check the fuse? Located to where the AC plug wire goes into the set. Can be checked with a ohmmeter for continuity. If bad do not exceed the amps of the original fuse when replacing because there may be a short in the circuit that will blow the new fuse and a higher amp may damage the set to a worse condition. Inspect the power supply for charred components across the AC line and replace.

The socket is stuck on the newly installed spark plug

You probably have a spark plug socket that is too large for the plug. Take the plug back out and then you can release the plug from the socket. The act of removing the plug might even unstick it from the socket. If it doesn't you can punch out the plug using the small square hole in the socket with a pin punch or similar item and hammer. A vise to hold the socket would help. Understand that hitting the top of the plug might shatter the ceramic. At least you get your socket back right? Be sure to wear eye protection and gloves. Safety first!

When you go to file explorer, and hit this PC the external device should show up. If the drive lost its formatting feature, you should see a notification that the drive needs formatting. If there is absolutely no values post on the computer screen regarding the external device attached to the USB port, then the DRIVE is bad and not communicating. Check the drive in some other device with a USB port, such as a smart TV.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

It sounds like your fuel pump is bad. The fuel sending unit, which tells your gas guage how much gas you have is integrated into the pump so when you replace the pump it will fix both problems.

Good Luck!
