Try pulgging a different device on your surge protector. If it works it means your Power supply is blown.

You fried your power supply inside the computer. check all connections and try plugging directly to known good outlet first. but it sounds like a blown power supply

Monster 1250g does not turn on


Surge protectors either have a switch that trips or a fuse that blows when high current passes through. This is a safety mechanism that protects your appliances from an "electrical surge".

The fuse is most likely blown. you can easily check if the fuse still works with a multimeter. If it isnt, change it and the strip should start working again. ( if u have a reset button on the spike, try hittin that. Im not sure if this model has a fuse or the breaker switch that trips.)

Zenith Pdp42t10000 won't turn on after power outage..it was on a surge protector which was still plugged in but was in "off" mode.


Connect something else to the same surge protector, and turn that on. Does that work? if not replace the surge protector.

Surge protector was blinking. smelled a little electrical burn odor. pluged tv directly to wall..all I hear ia a click noise..nothing lights up . help!


The surge protector has likely committed suicide... or died by homicide. In other words, it may have done its job, or been fried trying. Either the breaker/fuse inside melted by design due to a surge, or it died.

A surge protector is only designed to protect you from many small/everyday surges, or ONE BIG ONE. The cumulative wear of small surges will eventually kill them as well. They don't last forever, and some experts recommend replacing them every 3 years or so for safety/performance.

Some surge protectors have a reset switch or a replaceable fuse, but since you smelled something burning, I highly recommend tossing it in the garbage (if not still on fire, hee hee), and get a new surge protector for safety. Your house is worth the $25+. If you have had any other electrical issues in your home lately, get an electrician to do a quick safety inspection as well. Be safe!

PS: Not all surge protectors are created equal. Look for one that has "lighting protection" and costs at least $20-25 , or you likely don't have decent protection (the ones I buy are usually $30-$35, but I watch for sales and keep an extra on hand). Never overload a surge protector or wall outlet. Read the manual for the total watts,etc. supported. And don't expect to collect on the $50,000 equipment damage guarantee some surge protectors promise.

Computer will not boot or anything


Does it have power? Have you tried hitting the F8 KEY repeatedly after the initial windows screen starts? Do any of the pc's lights come on (hard drive usage,lan,cap lock,num lock, etc)? If you have absolutely no power try another outlet, if your connected to a surge protector see if the surge protector reset has tripped (found on medium to expensive protectors - if you hve a inexpensive one you probably wont have a a reset on it) try to plug something else into the outlet like a lamp, if you have no power check your household circuit protector and reset the fuse, but of course be leery. If something tripped the circuit something isnt right, indicating a power surge. Storms in your area or construction nearby?

Tv does not turn on after a thunderstorm and several attempts at power returning to the home. The power went on briefly then shut off several times, now the television will not turn on. We had the tv...


Check the main fuse in the power supply, the TV also has small surge protection devices (MOVs) installed after the fuse, any surges the come along and big enough will cause the main AC fuse to blow. When you surge protector, EVERY connections must go through the surge protector, for example, the AC cord of the TV is connected to the surge protector, the cable connection did not go through the surge protection, the surge then can get to the TV through the cables.

Lost our power and now it won't turn on.


Yes , usually you will need the manual to know how to replace it
In my experience the fuse blow due to something that is electrically faulty in the unit and changing the fuse does not remedy the issue. You may have a power supply issue that a reputable service tech will have to determine if it is malfunctioning in this area.

Try unplugging the computer completely from the wall for 15 minutes. Plug it back in, and see if it will power on.

If it doesn't it's most likely a blown power supply, when the breaker tripped, everything on the circuit basically fed back into everything plugged in. This is something most computer power supplies do NOT like.
The good news is, a power supply is generally pretty cheap, you can get new power supplies atarting around 20 bucks, although decent quality ones are closer to 50 bucks. Bad news is, there is about a 1 in 20 chance the power supply took other parts with it.
Once you do get it running, or get another computer, make sure to get a surge protector strip and plug everything connected to the computer into the surge protector. A 15 dollar surge protector can save you 150 dollars in parts and labor. (or more)
