Frequently power down


1. Power off the printer and computer and then disconnect the interface cable.

2. Power the computer back on.

3. Once the computer has booted, power the Brother machine back on.

- If the computer still reboots, restarts, shuts down, or enters hibernation mode, this problem is related to the power source for the Brother machine and computer. Continue to the next step.

4. If the Brother machine and computer are plugged into the same surge protector, uninterruptible power supply, or power backup device, power everything off.

5. Unplug the Brother machine power cord from the power device.

6. Plug the Brother machine power cord directly into a wall outlet or a different surge protector strip. You may need to use the reset button on the power device.

7. Power the Brother machine and computer back on.

L E D christmas lights stay on when shut off.


No it's not. Your LED Christmas lights are okay. Your surge protector is fine too although the switch on your protector is an SPST type - it is connected to one line of your AC outlet. When turned off, the line with the switch is physically cut, but the other line is still alive. Some LED circuits and TFL lights blink even when the switch is turned off, probably because one line of the AC power is still (a)live. If this worries you, just unplug the LED lights from the protector.

After a storm, i had to reset my modem, but although all proper lights light up on router, there is no corded or wireless signal coming through it


Hi dsetzhsd

This is a normal reaction to a power surge or power cut which if severe, can easily damage computer equipment

Turn the (Router/)Modem off with its on/off switch or at the mains, then power it up again. If it has not been damaged, it should reset itself and then sequence itself through the lights. Each light represents the successful restoration of various functions, including Power (shows its powered up), LAN/WAN (shows it has re-established its link with the Network), Wireless (shows it has resumed creating a Wireless Field and broadcasting a Wireless Signal from it), Broadband (shows it has reconnected itself to the Broadband signal coming from your Internet Service Provider[ISP]), Internet (shows that it has reconnected to the internet), plus a light for each occupied channel with an active Device attached to it.

Since storms and power surges and power cuts can damage electrical equipment (especially computer equipment), for the future, (if you haven't already done so) ensure that all your computer equipment has Surge Suppressors/Surge Protectors between each item and the mains electricity. Good quality Surge Suppressor/Surge Protector manufacturers offer insurance type protection against damage if equipment is damaged while connected to their products. See examples here:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_8?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=surge+suppressor+power+strip&sprefix=surge+su


The ultimate protection, if you live in an area susceptible to storms (and you don't already have one), is an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) between the Surge Suppressor/Surge Protector and the Mains wall socket. This acts like a fast-acting automatic standby generator during a power cut, providing continued power to valuable equipment after the power cut, giving the user 5-30 minutes (depending on price level and model selected) in which to safely shut everything down properly until mains power is restored. See some examples here:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_8?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=surge+suppressor+power+strip&sprefix=surge+su#/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_28?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=uninterruptible+power+supply&sprefix=uninterruptible+power+supply&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Auninterruptible+power+supply

PC won't power up. When power switch is turned on only fan works. Also, there is no blue light on power switch. The problem started when I tried to restart my PC and in the process of shutting down power...


When you say your fan works I'm assuming this is your power supply fan and not the fan above the processor? It sounds like you experienced a power cut and obviously this has affected your pc. I take it you don't have your pc conneced to a surge protector? If you have your pc connected to this, this normally protects your computer from being fried during a power cut, the surge protector absorbs the excess power that can originate from a power cut. It sounds like you may have a problem with your motherboard as a result of this. Changing the motherboard can be very expensive so you shouldn't do that without determining that it definitely is the motherboard that has been ruined. What I would say is, get yourself a surge protector and make sure that all computer equipment is plugged into this. The other thing to use if you can afford the expense is a Smart Uninterruptable Power Supply. If you get a powercut this quickly takes over and enables you to shut down the computer properly. Sorry, not much help otherwise, good luck with your situation. Andrew

My daughters xps 200 won't start, she presses the button and nothing. She has checked the surge protector that it is pluged into and it is OK... is there a reset button is there was a power surge??


most surge protectors have some sort of on/off switch and a reset button. If there was a surge then you would need to pres the reset button to get the surge protector to function again. If there was no surge then try using the on/off switch on the surge protector to see if that helps. Also try simply unplugging the power cord from the back of the desktop while the computer is turned off. This will sometime also help.

Taco timers and Surge Protectors


Do they run at the same time? The two items consume
a lot of power. Check the voltage when they are turned on. If the voltage is below 90 Volts. The power surge at your Taco is great. Then, the surge protector could not
handle the current inrush that's why it's blown off. You
must install a surge protector that can handle the Taco
current inrush.

Surge protector shuts off while playing PS3


swap to another surge protector. if it still does it, it is a power surge at the outlet, if it does not, the Surge Proctector has worn out. have someone with the appropriate knowlege have a look at the outlet as well. older outlets especially tend to wear to the point where the plug literally falls out of the wall.
