When it wouldn't come back on after the electricity went off, I tried the suggested 20-minute rest for my Canon MP830. When I plugged the printer in again after 20 minutes, it was fine!

Hi
The link you mention relates to Belkin's range of computer cards and network equipment. The drivers on this site will not help you at all since the Surge Protector is related only to the power supply to your machine. Its purpose is to prevent surges and dips in the electrical supply that might be harmful getting to your electronic equipment and damaging it. They require no drivers and have no means of applying them either.
If it blew the circuit breaker the first time you used it, and it doesn't work - anywhere - then its faulty. You mention that it is new, therefore don't make any attempt to repair it, open it or anything, just take it back to where you bought for replacement, since it was clearly not of "merchantable quality".
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Belkin F9S820sp06 surge protector 8 outlet is new, but doesn't work when plugged in.


Look for a reset button. IF no button exists then you might (with it plugged in) turn it off and on a few times to see if it resets itself.

I have an Ifit treadmill. I was changing speeds and it turned off and won't restart. It beeps when i turn it on but no lights on console.


Power issues with ProForm treadmills fit into two categories: the power does not turn on or the power shuts off when using the treadmill. If the power will not turn on, make sure that the treadmill is plugged into a working power outlet. In addition, you should use a single-outlet surge protector for the treadmill. Single-outlet surge protectors protect the machine from any voltage changes that may occur in your home.

If the machine is plugged into a working outlet, make sure the safety key is in the keyhole on the console. If the safety key is not plugged into the machine or if it is pulled out during operation, the treadmill will not operate.

Finally, make sure the circuit breaker located on the frame near the power cord is set to "Reset." The circuit breaker is set to "Reset" if the top of the button is pushed in. When the breaker is tripped, push it back to the "Reset" position and wait five minutes before powering on the treadmill.

If the ProForm treadmill shuts off during operation, check the power cord and circuit breaker as described above. You can also try removing and reinserting the safety key.

My Kenmore elite microwave is plugged into a surge protector and keep tripping the surge protector. I cannot use the microwave for more then a minute before it trips. Can you help


Your microwave is pulling more amps than the surge protector can handle. Remove the surge protector from the circuit and plug oven into wall outlet. Preferrably a GFCI circuit. Or you could puchase a surge protector with a higher amp tolerance.

My Belkin F5D8236-4 v3 Router won't turn on. We had a storm last night and the power went out but the router won't turn on. I have tried to plug it into different outlets to see if that would work...


Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

It does not turn on says safe


Hi,

This message appears when you remove the Safety key.

Kindly provide me with the make and model of the machine?

Are you sure that the key is intact? Is it properly placed?

Thanks!!

My HP HDTV trips my circuit brakers


1) Try with a different surge protector. The oine you're using could have a short-circuit
2) Try without a surge suppressor, at least for a day
3) Does the circuit breaker trip when something else starts running? Your microwave, fridge, dishwasher, etc.?

4) Check the user's manual of your TV, under SPECIFICATIONS. Check for "POWER REQUIREMENTS". If the power requirements listed is greater than 15 Amps or 1,700 Watts (assuming you live in the USA and your household is 110-120V), then the circuit breaker will almost always be triggered by the TV. Most circuit breakers inside a house are 15 Amps.

The only option you have is to replace the circuit breaker for one that has more Amps, but doing so on your own without having and electrican check if the wiring will hold the extra load is extremely unadvaisable. You may end up with an electric fire in your hands.

When plugged, it shorts the surge protector and outlets.


I noticed that my refrigerator, kenmore freezer2_bing.gif, and stove were all not on. This has not ever been a problem before, so I unplugged the surge protector and reset the outlet. I then plugged the refrigerator2_bing.gif and the kenmore freezer to the surge protector and I noticed when I plugged the kenmore freezer it just shorted the surge protector. I then just plugged in the refrigerator and oven to the surge protector with no problems. I tried to plug kenmore freezer to other outlet and same result "a short

Do you have power to the base? I've seen this message on several cordless phones if the base is unplugged, the power brick has failed or the power adapter was plugged into a power strip (or surge protector) that has been turned off. It can also happen if the circuit breaker for that outlet has tripped.

First check that the power adapter is plugged into an outlet and the other end is plugged into the base. If the power brick is cold, check that the outlet has power by plugging in a different device (like a lamp) and turning that device on. If there is power, than you need to replace the power adapter or the entire phone (if you can't match the amperage output of the adapter). If there is no power at the outlet and the adapter is plugged directly into the wall outlet, check your circuit breaker for that outlet.

If you used a power strip or surge protector, check if it is on. For a surge protector, check if the surge protection circuit light is on. Replace bad surge protector.

I hope this helps.

(I have seen someone intentionally turn off a surge protector during an extended power outage and then fail to turn it back on after power returned. The individual forgot that they had turned things off before they called for assistance with their phone.)
