Might not have just been the power cord that "went out". Western Digital is good about their warranties, if you're still covered, get a new unit. Sounds like a power surge might have cooked that unit (lightning, short circuit, etc.).

Wharfedale LCD2710HDAF no power to tv, checked cable and changed fuse a few times, new power lead? or is this a common problem?


Hi.

The power cord must be checked using a multimeter. The test is done reading impedance (ohms) between plug's prongs and contacts to TV power board.

If the power cord is OK and there is no power, then the problem is the power board inside the TV.

Regards.

Ginko.

Did you try using another power cord to see if it starts? Could be a weak power cord or intermittent failing power cord.

Could also be a short in the system preventing power to flow through the laptop

WD Mybook I TB hard drive won't power up


It could be the power adapter but you'll need to verify that the wall outlet or power strip you have it plugged into actually has power. If it's a power strip make sure that it is turned on and has power and also plug the adapter into a different outlet on the strip as individual outlets can go bad or have a bad connection.

My protron lcd tv power supply died and i would like to find a new one. it is 120 to 12 volts and 3 amps but has a 4 pin connector


Mine did the same thing right before 4th of July. I was watching tv and it just went off. At first I thought my power had gone out, but the tv was the only thing that was off. I tried to turn it back on, but it was dead as a doornail. :-) When I plug in the power cord the blue light usually comes on or the fan runs, etc. I tried to plug in the power cord and it did nothing, so I was upset thinking I had to get another tv.

I took a gamble that it was the powercord and after searching and searching finally found this website. http://www.lcdpayless.com. I placed my order on Thursday and went out of town for the 4th and I checked my mail today (Monday) and it was there. I plugged it in, the power came on and the tv works perfectly....plus the new cord doesn't have an annoying fan.

The cord is pricey at $117, but it beats buying a new tv. The company accepts returns minus a 20% restocking fee and shipping, so I figured worse case scenario I would only be out of $40+bucks if it didn't work and I had to send it back. So, if you plug your current power cord in and it's not lighting up, it may be your power cord. Hope this helps!!!

Hp dv9000 will not start up. blue lights are go


you get a black screen right, nothing at all then no bios, no logo, nothing at all?
Do you get any beep codes and if so in what order?
did you try different ram?
First try to plug your laptop to an external monitor. If it works, you screen is bad, if it doesn't you probably need a new motherboard.

Laptop does not power up or turn on anymore!


You seem to be in deep trouble..

It sure seems to be a motherboard issue. I will advise you to buy a new MBD. And to your relief, the data on harddrives will be "nil" affected by the motherboard change.

There might be an easier and cheap solution to the problem, but the area to be audited to find the solution is large with no guarentee that we will find a viable solution. Motherboard replacement will be an instant solution..

If you own a dell laptop, but a complete cover warranty that will include a free motherboard replacement and warranty for 1 more year..
