Have you tried resetting the AC adapter? If not, then try this:

  1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
  2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
  3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

Old iPad won't switch on or charge?

Check the charger, the cable, the plugs and the socket in the iPad.
Everything should look good. The plugs must be free of any dust, paper or debris. The plugs should feel "solid" in their sockets.
If you not even hear the bleep, when plugging the power to the iPad, the charger chain has a fault.
Be aware (perhaps you forgot) you can't charge an iPad on the computer. You need a good charger capable of giving 5 V and 2 Ampere.

Decoder wont switch on

try changing socket, if that doesnt work see if power cable is good and if its good you should go to a service because there is something wrong inside, maybe a fuse or worse.

My hp laptop don't turn on even the charger is

When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My Sony Vaio PCG-7142L laptop will not power up. The chargers green light comes on when plugged in though it does flicker somewhat (it may have always doen this). I thought it may be the connector that...

If there is any way you can find another power supply that you know works and try it, this will be a really good troubleshooting step. If you know anyone anywhere that has a similar laptop. Or try your power supply on another computer that takes a similar power supply, to see if it works on a known good laptop. Also, try using your power supply on your laptop with the battery removed. If the battery is bad enough, it might make the laptop not boot, even though it is plugged in. If there is no other laptop or power supply available, you should at least be able to use a multimeter to test the output voltage of the power supply. The expected output voltage should be printed on the power supply.
If the plug is loose in the socket on the laptop, the socket may be broken off the motherboard. Some laptops do not have the socket soldered directly to the motherboard, but most do, requiring a motherboard replacement if the socket is broken off.

You should see the green light on the mother board whenever the power supply is plugged in, so either the wall socket is bad or the power supply.
Try plugging a lamp into the wall socket to make sure a circuit breaker did not trip.
If the wall socket is good, I would suggest the power supply is bad.
At least the power supply fan should go on.
However, if you want to be sure, they sell a voltage checker with lots of lights to show all the outputs of the power supply, for about $10.
Or you could take the power supply out and take it to a shop to be checked.
A new power supply should run about $30.

The cigarette lighter in my Mazda 6 2003 has never worked since I've owned the car. I bought a new fuse and tried that, but it still doesn't work. You press the lighter in, and it doesn't even pop back out...

Which fuse did you install, and was it good or bad?Are both sockets dead?That car uses 2 fuses , each power outlet has its own fuse. R CIGAR and CIGAR, Fuses 10 and 13 Sometimes there is a fuse built into the cigar lighter socket, If the fuses are good, that fuse in the socket might be bad. If it is indeed bad, you will need a new socket. If you have a test light you can check for power at the center of the socket, if you do have power, then the ground plug may be off.

My garmin charges with my computer but stopped charging in the car

The most obvious answer is a possible blown fuse in the cigarette lighter socket or the in the tip of the charger plug. Most charger plug fuses are accessed by unscrewing the metal tip. Check both for good fuses.

If this doesn't solve the problem, make sure the points of contact between the charger, cradle and GPS are all free of dirt and grime. Don't forget to vacuum the cigarette lighter socket - especially if it is used as a lighter, too.

Konica 7030 copier: works good exept no power on ADF

In this particular machine it is very likely that the PSU (Power Supply Unit) has blown. You could also try another power cord/power socket.
