Does it attempt to startup at all? Do you get any lights or any indication that the unit is trying to start? If not, there should be a small transformer inside that is the standby transformer. It generates the 5V standby voltage. I have seen these go open in the primary since there is a fuse built into the transformer. You may need to replace this transformer. You should be able to get to the primary winding. With the unit unplugged, measure across the primary side with an ohmmeter. You should read a low value. If it reads infinity, the primary is open and you need to replace the transformer.

Check for small fuse on circuit board:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
Water heater circuit boards are NOT protected from surge. And reset button does not protect from surge. Nearby lightning can put out any household appliance, especially since more of these things are electronic instead of mechanical.
Install single-use whole house surge protector and replace it after each surge event instead of replacing appliances.

The quickest solution for tankless is to replace whole thing with more reliable tank-type electric heater for $275 from local box store.

Following a power cut my tv has no power, have changed the fuse, checked and used another proven working plug and still no power .. Is this tv repairable ?


Sounds like the power supply has copped a mains-borne surge. Replacing the fuse doesn't always fix it unfortunately. The cost to repair the switchmode PSU depends on how many components have been affected within it and the extent of the damage as a result of the surge. If the damage is serious, for example burn marks/large cracks on the board, and the optocoupler is destroyed, the whole set would be uneconomical to repair.

You can never predict when or where a power surge is likely to strike.

Tv does not turn on after a thunderstorm and several attempts at power returning to the home. The power went on briefly then shut off several times, now the television will not turn on. We had the tv...


Check the main fuse in the power supply, the TV also has small surge protection devices (MOVs) installed after the fuse, any surges the come along and big enough will cause the main AC fuse to blow. When you surge protector, EVERY connections must go through the surge protector, for example, the AC cord of the TV is connected to the surge protector, the cable connection did not go through the surge protection, the surge then can get to the TV through the cables.

I believe my tv was involved in a power surge. red/green blinks


Hello:
U just may of blown fuses on the power supply of the television if you are sure it was a surge. If u can open the unit check all fuses on the power supply for open coniditions. If the future is a good Ideal to use a surge proctector as this will protect your equipment. Make sure power is off and remove AC power to check fuses. Sometimes just removing AC power for a least 2mins will reset the unit.

NO POWER, did not plug into a surge protector.


Hi...
If it get get whacked with a surge , it may have crashed the power supply.
There might be a small glass fuse on the power supply too.
Have someone check that 1st. Otherwise it'll be cheaper to buy a new one

Try unplugging the computer completely from the wall for 15 minutes. Plug it back in, and see if it will power on.

If it doesn't it's most likely a blown power supply, when the breaker tripped, everything on the circuit basically fed back into everything plugged in. This is something most computer power supplies do NOT like.
The good news is, a power supply is generally pretty cheap, you can get new power supplies atarting around 20 bucks, although decent quality ones are closer to 50 bucks. Bad news is, there is about a 1 in 20 chance the power supply took other parts with it.
Once you do get it running, or get another computer, make sure to get a surge protector strip and plug everything connected to the computer into the surge protector. A 15 dollar surge protector can save you 150 dollars in parts and labor. (or more)

The same problem even without wires on, "check sp wires" and turns off, or doesnt turning on.. ...yamaha sucks..


Your unit took a power spike or a brown out; big dip in power then a surge. Yamaha's receivers are pretty solid when it comes to power supply's! it takes alot to zap em! If that's the case, it's about a 275 dollar repair. They will replace main transistors and caps. If you don't have a serious Home Theater Surge/Conditioner (not a power strip) get one! any receiver with today's spec's will be toast!. If you need some guidance on receiver's or surge, post a comment and I can help you out. Sorry for the bad luck!

Sony Bravia LCD TV is tripping the fuse in the house


These things draw a huge surge current when turned on. What size fuse are you blowing? These things can surge 10-12 amps on turn-on. What about a fuse with a reset button. They will take alittle more surge before they go. Don't matter about the insignia working before because the cheaper sets tend to stay powered up more when off....thus not surging on from a dead start. Could you try a different plug on a different circuit/fuse? and see if that makes a difference. If you have a 15 amp fuse, then your pretty close with other stuff plugged in. What size is your service? Do you still have an original 60 amp box with screw in fuses? Is it an old house?

Emachine with XP home edition doesn't start


Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!
