Depending on where and how it is used the power supply is a major point of failure. Usually due to dust buildup or other air flow issues the power supply will overheat or cause a shutdown due to a fail over condition like no fan or cooling for the CPU. I don't believe the sr1120nx has a power switch on the back of the power supply but double check the obvious....twice. Also, make sure the 110/220V slide is on one side, 110V in the US. You should at least be able to see a fan or CDROM light flicker if the power supply is still able to gasp. Try blowing out the dust and use the opportunity to open the PC and clean it. Amazingly, my experience is that dust causes as many or more failures than viruses. here is the link for the service manual:

Hi First make sure your main power supply is working fine,. Open cpu cabinet cover then pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes .Reconnect ATX power connector from smps power supply to motherboard. Then check. If still same then make sure smps power supply box is fine it is on the top of the cpu it is square box where power cable connected from main outlet. Change it then it will work again.Also make sure motherboard is not ground with cabinet cover. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

The machine won't turn on (no power light even). Trying to find the reset button. Where the cord enters the machine on the back ( top left) there is a a plastic cover housing the cord. I cannot see

Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Check to make sure there isn't a broken switch in the door housing. If not, this unit has a belt switch on it. Try spinning the drum by hand. If it's really loose and not tight, you need a new belt or the machine wont start.

Kmx02 wont turn on

Make sure the plug for the power cord is the same polarity and DC or AC for the mixer. Also make sure the inner diameter is correct for the station power jack as well.

As long as power from the supply is correct and adequate, theother potential sources of problems can be a blown internal fuse, broken power jack circuit tracks/traces, bad solder joints, dirty switch contacts, some contact cleaner sprayed in the gap of the switch toggle and then flipped rapidly for a number of times might clean it up.

The pull cord on gas pressure washer wont allow me to pull it as though it is tangled up, But when i removed the housing, it woorks just fine

Sometimes the housing gets bent slightly. A lot of the housings have little taps or prongs that get slightly bent. I would take the housing off make sure it not bent or warp, to make sure there is nothing to block the free flow of then cord flowing. If it pulls fine with housing off, and hangs up when installed it slightly bent. Use small needle nose pliers and gently bend tabs away from area where cord is hanging up.

There is no power from the battery or the adapter and the laptop does not recognise the adapter is plugged in. there are no lights coming on and the power button is doing nothing

Your battery maybe out of charge. Thats why nothing happens when you press the power button. The battery may not be charging because the power cord might not be working. Try another power cord.

Try removing the battery and plugging the power cord and switching on the computer. If its the problem with the power cord the computer wont start. If it starts, the power cord is working fine.

12 inch compound miter saw wont turn on anymore, was working earlier.

Could be the trigger switch or the power cord connection. For the switch pop the housing and disconnect the switch and hot wire the wires that went to the switch for a second and the motor will kick on or not. If not then the switch is not the problem. With the cord make sure your outlet is working then wiggle the cord.IF the saw was working before, these two things are the problem. If the saw was sparking alot while using it then it's the brushes and if run to long like this the motor is shot!

Dryer not working

Assuming the problem is associated with you changing the cord, it sounds like you have a wire crossed on the power cord. Double check how you have the cord installed first. If that is correct check your power to the dryer. Since you changed the type of cord, I assume you have had outlet replaced or have just moved to new house. If you have a fuse box instead of a breaker box, check your fuses. It takes two fuses for the dryer. If one of them blows, the motor will run but you wont get heat. The motor runs on 120 but it needs 240 for the element. I can't count how many people have bought a new dryer just to find out they only had a house fuse blown and nothing was wrong with their old dryer. If you have had wall outlet changed there could be a wire crossed in it.
