Sounds like the chipboard has blown. You could try pulling the unit apart and see if there is a burn on it not always easy to see but if there is you may as well buy a new one. If not it maybe the power supply regulator has blown which is more likly and this can be replaced but is expencive to do.

LG ldg3016st has no power on main control panel

Did you have any power surges in the house? Any thunder storms?? even if you are not using a microwave, but it is plugged in , you see the clock?? That means it is getting power and running the clock so while you may not be cooking in it, it is actually using power to run the clock functions. So, if there was a power surge, it damages a part on the main board called the Low voltage transformer. It takes the 120 volts from the wall and drops it down to the voltages the board needs to operate, sometimes 5,12 24 or maybe 30 volts. If the primnary winding gets damaged from a surge of some sort. it will no longer light up if that small transformer was damaged. That can happen without even blowing the fuse as the small wires in the transformer were never meant to carry the 15 or 20 amps the fuse is rated at. So the transformer goes bad and the unit is dead but no blown fuse. Have to check the primary winding of the low volt transformer to see if it has continuity. If not, will need new main circuit board. Sorry But $$$$$

My radio stopped working after a power surge tripped the breaker for the outlet it was plugged into.

I have had several different makes of clock radios and all said that it was battery back up for power failure
none worked and all settings had to be redone
power surges do not trip breakers as they are in effect a fuse to prevent damage to the wiring in a dead short situation or when a unit fails
even surge protectors will still pass power after a surge but will no longer protect against another surge

Computer wont turn back on after power outage

Power surges are like Radiation poisoning: the effects are cumulative. You need to have it on a Surge Protector (not just a power strip with an over-amp cutout,) that is AT LEAST 1200 Joules. Much higher if you live in a lighting-prone area, or are subject to frequent power-outages. Your Power Supply Unit appears to be on the edge of failing. I suggest you get it replaced IMMEDIATELY. A PSU with issues such as yours have been known to damage one or more of the other components inside your PC when it finally the Hard drive, or a Memory module...even the CPU.

Tv won't turn on like it's unplugged but it's not

I have seen the same problem with my tv's and the like. Depending on the age of the unit, I could sometimes find a blown fuse inside (safety feature). Many electronics especially tv's are extremely fussy about power surges. Even times when I knew there was no power surge, I would find a blown fuse inside the unit, keeping power from ever reaching it's destination. Like you said. tv behaving like its off because no power getting through

CH-DVD 320-won't come on at all. Used to work fine. Now won't come on, it's dead.

If your unit has no led light lit on the front panel, this is an indication that the power supply board is not working(dead).

First thing to check is the basic, I'm assuming that your outlet is live. Check the continuity of the power cord using the multimeter. Sometimes it has an internal broken wire due to frequent pulling and bending. If the power cord is good, open the top cover of the unit and check the internal fuse. Sometimes due to voltage surge and aging, fuse fail. If this is the case, replacing with same current(ampere) ratings will cure the problem.

Let me know if the fuse is intact or blow again after the replacement to determine the next steps.

I have a omni 1000 lcd. power went off when it came on the thing won't work. When I bypass the unit and plug my TV into the power out let the TV works . Have any idea what could be going on ,is the...

The UPS is either off, has a dead battery or is dead. Does the UPS power anything at the surge only outlets? If it doesn't, it's off or dead. Turn it on and check again.

The Omni 100 VS does not have a user-replaceable battery or other parts. If the battery or UPS is dead, replace it.

I hope this helps.

If the battery is dead, but the charging system is working will that stop the Battery/Surge side from working?

If you still have your dead battery connected it will work as long as there's no power loss, there are rare cases this won't happen, you can replace the damaged one for a motorcycle one or even a car battery as long as they're 12 volts and polarity setup is right, inverse polarity will kill the UPS so be careful.

Micro 6654438991 power surge from pole, light works, panel dead

Sounds like you should get estimates and turn in on homeowners insurance. Power surges are very destructive and you have lost the control board at least and maybe some switches. Eric

Laptop dead. power surge.

Hi there,
You need to reset the Power Management Unit. The instructions for most models are here:
Choose the one for your model part way down the page. Once reset you should be up and running again.

All the best
