I can't imagine all 4 phones died during the storm, but it is possible that the power adapters or the base stations internals were damaged. If all of the phones are plugged into a surge protector, try and directly connect one of the phones AC adapters directly to the electrical outlet. If it works, replace your surge protector or try the Reset button, if not, try a different electrical outlet.

I have a Mitsubishi air con that has broken down like this twice because gecko's have gotten in and shorted it out. We had to have the circuits replaced at $1000 a pop. I think it can short out after a lightning storm too.

Printer just doesn't work


lightning might cause the problem. if your printer is under warranty send it to them and they will use some tools to fix your printer. sometimes lightning interupts the electricity on your house. im experiencing that when stormy weather and we got no power. hope that helps!

Outdoor light timer by Intermatic in house when we bought it. Trying to program it after changing batteries, but there are no directions for it. how would I get some instructions for it?


1) Model number is unknown.

2) You have outdoor programmable Intermatic timer, and replaced battery.

3) Open following link to help identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#hb88

4) If timer does not show on link above, add a comment with clear description of timer and buttons for possible identification and manual.

5) Most battery operated timers require 'reset' after battery change.
Manuals usually say, the battery is replaced and programs remain intact, and then current time has to be set again.
In typical situation however, most timers lose functionality with battery change. That's why timer is reset, and then reprogrammed.

6) If functionality is not restored after battery change and reset, then timer has gone bad.

7) Newer Intermatic timers have 'lifetime' warranty against workmanship defect.
Older timers have 1 year warranty.

8) Electronic timers, low voltage power packs, plus electronic water heaters, and electronic water softeners and treadmills etc are each susceptible to power surge from nearby lightning and also from simple power outage.
Not always necessary, but safest to unplug outdoor timer during storm event and with circuit breaker trip, or power outage. Plug back in after power is restored or storm is over. This is true also if timer is on GFCI, and breaker trips. Unplug timer and then reset GFCI.
Add a whole house surge protector to main breaker panel. This gives 1-time protection from surge event.

9) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

Our telephone and answering machine quit working after a power outage. Pushed reset button but nothing changed. The letter E is in the window of the base unit. When unplugged the power supply and...


it sounds like the unit has taken a surge, which is a common side effect of power outages. unplugging and replugging make fix the issue but since you have already tried this, i would reccomend contacting the manufacturer. See if a replacement can be given or if you have warranty on the unit.

The E is most likly a refrence to general error. the main board for teh unit was probably damaged by the power outage.

My scanner stopped working yesterday. Tried everything and no luck. Its an MP830 and the printer works fine.


Did you have a storm or lightning? Try unplugging the power cable from the left rear of the machine (not the wall). I have had to do this on several occassions after storms. Good Luck!
