Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I was using my Monster Power PowerCenter PC 800 power surge protector. My tv was running off it, Xbox360, and I had an iron plugged in too. All of the sudden it shut everything off and had a high pitch sound coming from it. I tried resetting it, unplugging everything and replugging it in, and even switching the outlet on the wall. Each time i turned it back on it had the same high pitch noise emitting from it. What could be the problem? How can I fix it?

You have to open it up. Check for busted fuse, or a burnt
part. Your Power Center PC800 just experienced an overload. It could have blown an internal fuse at the least
and a burnt out part at its worst.

check the TV power cord first., try to plug any other appliances on the same surge protector or outlet, like electric fan, electric iron., see if's work., if it does, probably the power supply of your TV is in trouble.

Sony wega kdf-e50a10 hit by lightning now it will not turn


follow the power cord and just check the input fuse if you've got a surge protector on it it may have just blown the fuse from a spike. It doesn't hurt to try. This fuse is inside the tv.

Monster power ht 800 just makes noise, won't work. any fix?


Had similar problem. Paraphrasing the warranty info sheet (with concurrance of my Geek Squad friends), our HT800s have sacrificed themselves to protect our components. They tell me it is possible for only one circuit in a home to have an electrical surge. That is why the TV in one room may "blow" and the adjoining room TV not. Bottom line: Time to buy a new surge protector.

Good Day,

Sounds like the TV's convergence circuit has failed:
*Call an Authorized Service Center and them give you an estimate cost of the repair, or
*Repair it your self; get KIT 10 locally or B&D Enterprises

Good luck, big IRISH.

Surge protectors


Hey Laduell,

Before anything else, it's probably best to explain the differences between power surges and flux. Power surges (also called voltage or electrical spikes) are generally caused by a sudden, massive increase or decrease in the voltage flowing through an electrical circuit. Flux, on the other hand, can be defined as the actual voltage flowing through a circuit at any given time.

Whenever an electrical device turns on, turns off, or changes modes of operation, it can cause slight disturbances or differences in the voltage flowing through an electrical circuit. Exactly how much of a difference is made may be dependent on the type of electronic device attached, though major electronics and appliances will have a larger "pull" than smaller devices, like clock radios. The more devices are attached to the same circuit, the larger these voltage differences may become.

This fluctuation in voltage - combined with other electrical, magnetic or radio frequency interference ("noise") - has been known to cause problems or even damage in some electrical devices. To prevent such damage, many manufacturers may include "noise reduction" or "EMI/RFI protection" features in their surge protectors.

As both Dynex and Monster Cables appear to include such a feature in many of their products, the price difference you are seeing may simply be related to the number of additional features that the Monster Cable surge protector offers, though this cannot be guaranteed.

If you're in doubt about your purchase, I would strongly suggest contacting either manufacturer for more information. Most manufacturers are able to provide you with detailed descriptions of their product features, and one of the two may be able to point you towards an online FAQ if one is available. Dynex's toll-free hotline is 888-305-2204, and Monster Cable can be reached at 415-840-2000.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
