Computer won't turn on after short in electrical circuit

We had a short in a different outlet on the same circuit that shut the circuit down. It took us over a month to find and fix the short, but now the computer won't turn on and there is a green blinking light on the back. The computer was plugged into a power strip at the time of short, and everything else plugged into the computer works (i.e monitor, speakers)

Hi:
You might just need the power supply on your computer tower replaced. It is about $40, and not that hard to swap out. Most computer stores will test it for you for free too. If they test it and its good, then you might have further damage to your tower from the power problem, but the power supply would be the most likely problem

Sub Zero 650S 3 Shutting Down/Tripping


Hi,

According to your information you gave you either have an extended circuit (electrical) or a short/weak connection in the unit. If you can get to the outlet for the unit, try another outlet (different circuit would be better) this would rule out the electrical issue, either the unit or the power supply to the unit could be the issue. If you can you might want to call a subzero tech to look at this. This units main power supply into the unit is located in front on the freezer compressor, if you have a dark or blackened molex connection you would have a short there. Try the relocation of power first and see were the issue can be isolated to supply or unit.

Good luck

THere is no electricity in the bedrooms and I can't get them back on?


If the circuit breaker will not reset - all the way off and then back on with a click sound. Then something you have plugged into the outlets in those rooms is probably shorted causing an over current condition. If the circuit breaker won't reset, shut off all lights and then unplug EVERYTHING and then see if it will reset. If it does, then replug everything one at a time until the electricity goes off again, that is the bad apple.But if it won't reset, then your breaker is probably bad. Yes, they do go bad, just infrequently.

My wii won't turn on


Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

Information:
This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.

  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.

  • Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)

Two months old dead no power


Hi there,

Check the Power cable of your PC for any damaged or burn/cut. Firmly check the connection on the slot of the CPU Power Supply,

Check the Electrical outlet , or better plug the cord on a different electrical outlet.

If all of this has nothing to do and the problem was still there, possible problem on the powersupply are, it is advisable that you have to replace this part, a possible burnt or a short circuit has happen inside, due to some electrical malfunction on your area.

HOpe this helps.

Let me know for any clarification

Jura capresso shuts down


It is possible that the timer unit in the maker is defective and need to be replaced. I would suggest you move the coffee maker to a different outlet and see if you have the same problem. If there is a short in the mechanism or a bad connection in the timer it could be experiencing a thermal shutdown.

Unit shuts off automatically after power on.


You have an internal short in the electrical line. your wall a/c [120 volts] goes inside and is converted [changed] to DC [ like a super battery] There are a lot of connections coming out of this POWER SUPPLY[super battery] to FEED other electrical circuit. ANY one of the circuits can demand more then power supply can give and will cause it to SHUT DOWN [turn off to protect itself]
unless u know what u are doing [" DANGER!! wILL rOBINSON, DANGER!!] you should not mess with it.
