Surge Protectors are devices that usually you plug your equipment to.. and it protects it from Voltage Spikes that would otherwise destroy the device without it.. saddly not all Surge Protectors are the sam.. some are completely useless..

If you are really serious about protecting your PC not just the hardware but also the data and your work.. might as well invest on a UPS(Uninterrupted Power Supply) unit.. it has everything a surge protector can offer and more..

My stereo just quit on me there was bad weather but it was on one of those power surge cords it is a pioneer stereo fm-am digital synthesizer tuner


If it was plugged into a surge protector, check the surge protector warranty. There are A LOT of surge protectors that will cover damage to items plugged into them through their warranty system. I've had full home computers and TV's replaced by surge protector companies to avoid having a hit to homeowners insurance.

Frigidaire FRA 155MT1 melted the extension cord and surge protector


You must use a heavy duty power cord with this unit as it draws alot of amerage. Most regular extension cords csnnot handle the amperage and overheat or melt.

I had a power surge about a month ago and now my wii will not turn on. My wii is pluged into a surge protector.


I posted this elsewhere on here too, but I'll post it here too so it helps you.

This is a common problem with the Wii. You wouldn't believe how often I read about this. I'm very surpised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out, etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter, not the Wii itself.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

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 surge hit my surge protector with my 'sony tv hooked to it.


Well, the power supply may be still damaged by the surge, what may happen is that when first surge happens the surge protector protect your TV by sacrifing itself but then the second surge comes along, since the protector already blown up then the surge will just come right through to the TV on the second surge. That is bad problem for the surge protector that sacrify itself but can only do it for ONE time.

My daughters xps 200 won't start, she presses the button and nothing. She has checked the surge protector that it is pluged into and it is OK... is there a reset button is there was a power surge??


most surge protectors have some sort of on/off switch and a reset button. If there was a surge then you would need to pres the reset button to get the surge protector to function again. If there was no surge then try using the on/off switch on the surge protector to see if that helps. Also try simply unplugging the power cord from the back of the desktop while the computer is turned off. This will sometime also help.

Tv won't turn on


I suggest you unplug the set for about 15 minutes and then plug it in and try again. Sounds like you may have had a power surge/bump in the middle of the night. Althoguh you are using a surge protector, doesn'r mean the devise hooked to it can't lock up during a power surge.( Surge Protectors are an insurance policy only, not a garrentee ). If unplugging the set and waiting doesn't fix it, it will need to have the power supply section of the board repaired. Good Luck
