Hello Carl;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are several possibilities so lets start with the most probable:

First, you will need to have a multi-meter. Set the meter on Ohms the lowest setting (X1). Touch the two meter leads together. Observe the meter reading. When you touch the contact ends with the meter leads you should see a reading of '0'. if the component is good. Any other reading the component is bad.
A multi-meter is relatively inexpensive. You can purchase one for about $20.00 - $30.00. This is a wise investment. You can use the meter to determine bad components on all of your appliances and more.
Ok, you do not have a multi-meter. Well then we are going to jump the component. For this we will need about a 12 or 14 gage wire approximately 6" long. Strip the wire about 2 inches back on each end.

The plugs on this model projector is very delicate, over time the solder around the plug will begin to crack. Until eventually the connection is lost. Another possibility is that the power supply has gone bad. Using another cord would not cause this. I can fix the projector if you'd like. My ebay screenname is gtitubro.

My toshiba laptop won't turn on!


Place the battery back in and the power cord. Follow the power cord all the way to the plug and verify nothing was unplugged by accident. (the box on the plug sometimes disconnects without the user knowing it) This could have caused your lack of power. Hope this helps.

No power


Check your power cord very carefully....especially the plug ins (square box)....could be the power supply itself. Regarding fuses; You can't see it inside the computer it is an electronic component. Got to go to store

TV won't turn back on after power cord was disconnected from unit


If power cord was jerked out of the outlet or set, make sure it wasn't damaged. If it was unplugged violently, the circuit board inside the set could be damaged. Also make sure the outlet that it is plugged into is not damaged or a switched outlet.
