I assume you unplugged the unit for several minutes and tried plugging it back in to reset it. Is the outlet ok? Did you try plugging something else into the same outlet and it worked?

If the cord is ok and the fuse isn't blown and the VCR is completely dead, I would say that you have a problem in the power supply section. This could be a bad transformer, rectifier or regulator module. Unfortunately you'll need to take it to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Hello,

If the outlet is good and the cord is good, you may have indeed blown the fuse in the power supply. That is the only fuse. The fuse in the power supply is usually "hard-wired". Not necessarily, but usually. You would need someone familiar with them to replace it if it is blown.

Some computers have a green LED on the back of the computer near the power cord. Do you have one? Is it on? You can also look to see if the small green LED is on on the motherboard.

If you get no indication of power, the power supply is probably gone. A new on is about $25 and pretty simple to replace.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

A dead set simply means a cut off of power supply. Open the back cover of your dishwasher . Locate the area where the AC cord is located and look for the plastic fuse holder which is usually installed in one of the AC cord line open it and replace the fuse inside with the same amperage or value.

Monitor won't turn on


Check that all the cables are connected properly, Mine wouldn't come on about a week ago, and the power cord was connected fine, It was the VGA that set it off... Try that, and call me if it doesn't work :p

Kenmore HE4 no power to control, no sound, but the drum light bulb on when door opened


Another post reported replacing the power cord. I am trying to determine if this is a factory defect. Check the power at the power cord connections inside the dryer. You could have lost power on one leg and the other 120 volt leg is letting the light work. Let me know what the model and serial number is.

No power RCA R52WM24


ok since you have checked the main glass fuse on the little board toward the front. You have no flashing led on front of set. this is an indication that you are missing the voltage to your processor. also known as standby. fl231 and the two other little brown rectangular fuses can be blown and the set will still come up and shut down. Are You a technician? The next step i would check is to see if your getting 320 volts out of your main doubler... CAREFULL VERY CAREFULL this will hurt you. so if your not tech.. dont do it.
