Question about Goldstar R1203 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

The power cord on my goldstar R1203 gets super hot and kicks off the power strip. I have tried just plugging it directly into the wall socket and it actually kicks off the power to the entire room. It will run for about an hour using the power strip then we have to turn it off and let the power cord cool off. Is this fixable?

I would have the unit checked by a Service Tech and would not run it (the AC) until it was fixed.

This could be a dangerous situatiion especially if the breaker doesn't trip.

We had a power outage, now pixma Mx410 won't come on, any ideas?


Is pinter plugged into a power strip? Try plugging directly into wall. Make sure wall outlet is working correctly, try another item in plug in. Does printer have a power module or brick that is plugged into printer? That power module is there to protect your printer during a power surge, it may need to be reset. Is there a light on that brick or power module? If so, does it light up? If not, could be a bad power module. There is no such thing as "reset" button, so don't look there...It will have to be reset in a series of ways for an "external" module.
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, disconnect the cord from the power module.
  4. Wait 15 seconds.
  5. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, reconnect the power cord to the power module.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  7. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  8. Check to see if the power module or the power cord has an indicator light and if it is on
For an internal module:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. Wait 15 seconds.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  5. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  6. Check to see if the power module has an indicator light.
Not sure if this will help you..but worth a try.....

My ps2 slim is plugged in but the power light is not on


Try plugging the unit in, in another room... and directly to the wall... if you get a light on there then your socket my be bad or your power strip. also try unplugging the power cord from the adapter and testing with a meter ... you should get 115v (AC) if not then your cord is bad... if you do then try plugging it back up to the power brick and test the barrel for DC voltage...
if you didn't get a reading on the adapter then replace you power brick

The cord become hot when it is in the outlet


If the cord is hot you are pulling too much current to power the microwave oven. Make sure the microwave is plugged directly into the wall and not an extension cord or outlet strip.

One day just would not turn on, fuse maybe?


Possibly. However, I would try rebooting the unit first. Unplug the TV from the power supply for about 5 minutes. Then reconnect and try to turn the unit on. If it still does not work, plug a lamp into the wall socket where you have the TV plugged into. If the lamp lights, then you're getting power to the wall socket. If you have the TV plugged into one of those "power strips" check that it is turned on. If so, plug the TV directly into the wall socket. If it comes on, then you have a bad power strip. If the TV still does not come on, you'll probably need repair service.

I have a gateway desktop computer. Recently moved


Before you actually replace the power supply, check some other things first:
1. Wall socket
2. Power strip/surge protector
3. Power cable
4. On the back of the computer, where the power cable plugs into, is the red switch set to 115? It should be 115.
5. Make sure that the power cable is not connected to a regular extension cord. Power cable must plug directly into a surge protector that is not daisy-chained to another power strip, surge protector, or normal (household) extension cord. Surge protector must be directly plugged into wall socket.

If none of the above solve the problem, open up the case and ensure that all power connections are secure. Also check ALL other components' connections. Any loose connections can cause problems for you.

If everything is secure and the problem persists, replace the power supply.

Power supply light is red


This issue occurs when the external power supply has detected a fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply will turn itself off if one of the following conditions is true:
  • There is too much current
  • The voltage is too high
  • The temperature of the power supply is too high
Under these conditions, the light on the power supply turns red.

Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has already overheated. If the power supply light is red, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.
  2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall socket.

    For more information about how to disconnect the Xbox 360 power supply, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 906205 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906205/ ) How to connect and disconnect the Xbox 360 power supply
  3. Let the power supply cool for several hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall socket during this time.
  4. After the power supply has cooled for several hours, reconnect the Xbox 360 Power Supply to the console and to the wall socket.
If the power supply light is still red, go to step 2. Step 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctly loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); If the power cord is plugged in to an extension cord, a surge protector, or a power strip, the current or voltage that flows through the power supply may not be correct. Make sure that the power supply is plugged directly into a working wall outlet.
Step 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall socket loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try a different wall socket. Ideally, plug the power supply into a wall outlet that is elsewhere in the house.

Power failure


by plugging it directly into the wall... what was it plugged into before. and have you actually taken some other electrical device and plugged it in to make sure the wall socket is still live.
there is also a reset button on most power strips... it may have tripped.

Try those and let us know.

No Power


There is a whole lot the typical user can check but here is the list: -Disconnect the power plug from the power strip and plug directly into a tested wall socket. Sometimes the power strip sockets go bad. -Try another working power cord. -When you plug in the power cord do any of the monitor LEDs com on?
