Sounds like your amp is not getting enough current. Did you wire with at least 10 or even better 8 gauge wire? Do you have any type of a capacitor on the system. If you are looking for huge power the cap keeps the power level up when you have those sudden big draws.

    The remote wire only carries a signal to turn the amp on and off and a heavier wire will make no difference. How good is the battery and alternator in your car?

Should the interex surge protector have both red and green light?


the red may indicate a surge controlled but will no longer protect the equipment
most surge protection is only good for one hit and that fails the protection for more surges
read the user manual on it or go to a retailer and read the instructions on a new unit

Toshiba 55 55S41U Black screen no back light no picture green power light


have you checked for dry joints or blown capacitors , with a power surge depending what kind voltage or amperage the circuit received it might have even blown screen connect it will certainly fry a lot of components ,have you looked for holes in capacitors ,resistors or burnt tracks between components . that's about all I can think of to check also some power panels have built in fuses to stop surges if you could obtain a circuit diagram that should help you also you could google your query and see if you get any assistance it costs nothing and you could get your TV up and running again . All the best .

ATX-300-12Z was hit with a power surge (thought we had a surge protector). Green light on power supply blinking at 2X/second. No power at USB devices (or anywhere else.) PC was on when surge hit.


There were 2 Switching power supply circuit inside the ATX PSU. There's a Standy PWM circuit whichSupply +5V to the PWM IC of the Main PWM. Stand by pwm still working or insufficient voltage, lower than +5V. This is the reason you still have Green light. Check or replaced small filter capacitor around 100 MFD 16V, open resistor or shorted diode that was nearest of the PWM IC..
Watch out for charge voltage on big capacitors.

LUXOR V16LCDHD AFTER POWER FAILURE, STANDBY LIGHT CONTIUOUSLY FLASHING, NO DISPLAY, REMOTE HAS NO EFFECT, ON OFF BUTTON ON TV DOES NOT RESPOND.


Since nearly all of our entertainment electronics is 'computerized' to some extent, unstable AC can cause lockups so when this occurs, the first thing to try is to pull the AC plug, overnight at best, and plug it back in the next day. If that doesn't work, the power supply has taken a hit and will likely need repair or replacement.
We like to call every power outage a 'surge' when sometimes it doesn't surge but drops out momentarily. Surges are mostly caused by lightning strikes that don't even have to be that local and may be miles away but send high voltage spikes down the lines before any mechanical breaker can interrupt the power. A cheap 'surge protector' will help for lesser events but if they are subjected to several hits, they start to lose their effectiveness and should be replaced. In a single family residence, a 'whole house surge protector' is good insurance and can be installed as a DIY project for under $200 US and even include insurance for 5-10 years against losses of powered equipment.

Power surge caused wine cooler to quit cooling


Power surges, spike and brown-outs are a nemesis to small refrigeration units. The capacitor for the compressor likey was affected and possibly the start components in general, especially if the unit was operating when the surge occured.

HP M1050Y - not powering up after power surge


The green light at back is probably the NIC or network interface card, which means the computer is receiving power. Just not enough apparently. Try changing the power cords from being plugged into the surge protector to being plugged dirctly into wall socket. When you do this take the ethernet cable out before turning it ON.

Mits 65" wont power on


set could have a short and be in shut-down mode ...making just a blinking green light on the front.

remember your standby circuit is always on waiting for a remote command and can be damaged by surges in the line from storms.
please add a surge protector in future after you found the failure.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
