If there is no power at all , then it is either the PSU (transformer) or the power cord.

What a technician does is the following:

Unplug power cord.
Disassemble TV.
Visually inspect Power Board, looking for blown or leaking capacitors or burnt areas.
Inspect power cord contacts looking for broken solder joints.
Plug back TV and read volts at power cord contacts , or read continuity (Ohms) on power cord to test power cord integrity.
Test volts out on PSU board.
Replace PSU board or power cord.

Parts for this set are not longer in stock, and can be ordered from Sellers like Vance Baldwin or Partstore, or requested directly from manufacturer.

If the problem is a PSU capacitor, the capacitor alone can be replaced by a local technician, saving money on the power board replacement.

The toaster does not heat and it's only 6 mos. old.


1. check outlet where you plug in your toaster with lamp or vacuum.
jiggle plug of lamp or vacuum while plugged in to check for bad outlet.

if lamp or vacuum do not work, check breaker panel/fuse box for tripped breaker/blown fuse.
if breaker/fuse okay, replace outlet.
if lamp or vacuum work okay, go to next step

2. plug toaster back into outlet, jiggle plug, then jiggle cord at plug, then jiggle cord at toaster.
this checks for intermittent power cord.

if cord okay, check that the toaster lever or toast basket are not blocked from going completely down.
might be a bit of bread, muffin, bagel that blocks the basket.

if all okay, you need other solutions.....

Emerson LCD 32" TV....Model # LC320EM82....Power problem, powers up and powers right back off almost instantly....i have tried to google a solution and so many people are having the same solution but...


Okay!First i need to isolate your electrical outlet is working. Use another Video/Audio component(ex. dvd player) and plug the power cord into the TV outlet,be sure it has nothing to do with the outlet.
If the outlet is working properly,Unplug the TV power cord and wait for 1 minute before you plug it back in the outlet.Turn on the TV MANUALLY without the remote control and see if the power stays on,if not,sorry,you need it to be repair.Don't waste more time on it. If you only purchase it for few months with a reputation retailer,there is no reason NOT to call them up,cause it should be still under warranty?

I have no power on my dishwasher. I ran an extension cord to another outlet that I know has power and still nothing. I don have any led lights or anything. Can you help. GE model # GHDA960K03BB. Thank...


Few components may cause power failure to your Dishwasher.
1. Disconnect your power plug from the socket outlet.
2. Trace the cord to where it connected to your dishwasher.
3. Tight those connectors firmly .
4. Plug back your dishwasher power cord .Start your dishwasher.
If nothing happen, check if control board came with fuse or bimetal. check the continuity of the fuse., You may also check your latch assembly.If no power still change the console or the control board.

Protron 42


on the back of the TV where the power cord plugs into the back of the tv there is a small black on/off switch- it's not as obvious as you would think.... but that was turned off. Not sure how that happened since the back of the Tv was never touched when it went dead- but I unplugged the cord from the back of the tv and from the outlet and reset that switch and it worked.

Hi there!
The fuse may have blown. If so and you know how to check for a faulty fuse inside a TV, it may be worth a shot. Please unplug before opening and replace fuse with same value. If it blows again, you have to have it seen to by a repair technician. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004
