SOURCE: Unit doesn't work with vehicle power cable

if you are using the USB cable, that won't work. You must use the bracket plug. the USB cable will charge the unit and you can't use it while it's charging. If using the USB, the system thinks you are either charging the unit or connected to a computer. This is a design flaw.

Blacked out. won't come on. no red "on" light. Outlet tested hot. Recently started turning off and re-starting.


I assume you tested the outlet by plugging in another device. Sounds to me like the internal power supply may be bad. This is better than the backlight going bad as a power supply is usually much cheaper to get a hold of. I'm not sure of your level of expertise, but please be aware that there is high voltage inside your unit. I recommend having a trained professional do this as the risk of shock is quite high. I would tell this professional to check the power into the power supply section and out of the power supply section. if it is bad, order a whole new power supply board. Repairing these is quite difficult, even in a lab. shopjimmy.com is a good source for tv parts.

No lights - Acts Like It Has No Power At All


see the diagram and pictorial and proceed with common sense:
1) test the fuse for open or band contact with VOM,see the diagram attached how to do it
2)check the switch door hook or door release button,when they are broken they do not touch the switch, and will NOT start. test for open
see the diagram

My sharp grill2convection made a noise and quite working. is this possibly a fuse?


Hello,

the problem of this unit is power related.

First, remove the unit's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. It may cool by then and might power on. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electricity entering into the unit.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then the unit is most likely having a power problem.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the cooker, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the cooker doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the machine.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

If any machine or electronics device doesn't power on, it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

My wii console will not come on.I have tried unplugging it and then plugging it in 15 minutes later but it still does not work.It was working fine earlier this week.


My husband unplugged the power cord from the unit and the power source to test it and found the transformer was working fine. He then plugged it back into the unit and then into the power source and it was working again!!!! I don't know why, but who cares when you can use it again. Good luck...I hope this works for you, also

MY whirlpool microwave model#mh6100xybo, quit working in the middle of reheating.


Usually when a microwave regardless of brand quits mid cycle the main fuse has failed. It is easily located as it will be the very first connection point off of the end of the power cord. Remove all of the chassis screws usually 4 on the sides and 6 on the back of the unit. Then begin lifting the chassis up at about a 15 deg angle and pull to the rear, Once the chassis is removed be very careful no to touch the large capacitor as it will still have a considerable charge. Locate the power fuse by following the power cord to the white and black terminals and remove the fuse. Purchase an exact replacement fuse and replace it. Reinstall the chassis cover without the screws and test the function of the unit by heating a cup of water until it boils. If it passes this simple test it should be fine. If it works momentarily and then quits the power diode has probably failed. The power diode is a 2.5 inch long and 0.5 inch wide and black located either on the bottom of the chassis or the inside back panel. This can be tested with an ohm meter by testing resistance. Set the meter to any ohm setting and place the test leads one on each terminal. The power diode should only read in one direction. If it reads in both directions (reverse the position of the test leads on the terminals) then the power diode has failed and will need to be replaced.

I have a Sharp portable room air conditioner model CV-P10NC. The power plug RESET button and TEST button will not click in order to check out the power plug as the unit will not turn on. They did test O.K....


the fused9G.F.C.I.) cord you speak of is probably the G.F.C.I. built onto these units by design, can you or someone you know get access inside the unit and :Hot-Wire" the units cord and,bypass the power cord ( Just To Test the Unit)and see if it stays operational then replace bad unit cord if this is it.

Are you inclined to opening the back of this TV? if so and you know you can do it check to see if there is a fuse blown on the PSU " power supply unit" if you do not want to do this well then you going to need to hire someone..
