I have a Pinguino AC
The portion of the plug that you refer to is known as a GFCI protector. It is designed to interrupt the flow of electrical current to the device if there is an imbalance of current flow in the hot and neutral conductors.
When you pressed the TEST and RESET buttons together, you essentially shorted out the sampling resistor, and blew the trip relay. Replace the plug / cord with a manufacturer spare.
For temporary use, as in testing only, you can remove the GFCI plug and replace it with a regular and appropriately wired plug. This will restore power to the unit, and allow you to continue to troubleshoot without being impeded by the GFCI affecting the outcome.
