The usb ports are powered using a fuse in series of approx 500-750 ma to avoid damage due to short circuit, check for the blow fuse that is in the path of usb ports.

My unit wont get cold, had power outage and think it needs to be reset. How do u reset compressor or unit?


See this video for the "reset" function of some refrigerators:

Said this, I don't mean to "panic" you but if you can't find this "restet" function, your refrigerator suffered a surge effect and might have some electronic cricuir damaged; in best case, some internal security fuse, typical as result of power outage, when power returns.
If you can't find that "reset" call repair service.
By the way, get a surge protector for your refrigerator as soon as possible. See some typica protectors at Amazon, but you can buy one at your local home depot or outlet store.

Why won't it start?


The computer is not producing a video signal.
The varistors in the surge protector are probably burned out, or there is some other problem in the surge protector.
The monitor is very likely OK.

Surge associated with power outage can make disasters in refrigerators. You need a power protector for refrigerators.
Now, what already is damaged, should be repaired by an authorized techician.

Monitor is erratic in operation - Power supply issue. Sooner or later the anomaly will become permanent and it will not power on. Just be ready for the eventuality.

Probably should be tossed. But you can try plugging a standard lamp into it. If it powers your good on that aspect but no way to know if surge pretection is still valid.

Surge causing power outage


A laser printer when warming up draws far more power than your battery backup is equipped to support. Plug it into the surge protector side if you have one, or bypass the battery backup entirely.

Transformer


Several things have happened. 1st have you tried plugging the monitor in the wall and not in the surge protector. 2nd does your power button or LED light uo when you power it on? You have stated the transformer is bad due to lighting strike. Have you replaced the transformer? Your monitor should be coverd under the surge protector warranty. Please answer questions and we will go from there.
