1) test the outlet box and plug a desk lamp if work, if does the circuit is o.k if NOT reset the c.breaker from your home
2) test the power cord for open or break
3) see for a blown fuse inside and replace, or c.breaker tripped reset.
4) test for short in transformer+coil+filter+diode+rectifier and ground chassin.
5) test the Horizontal output for +125vdc +HVREC+FLYBACK+vertical output for 80vdc+all they go to the CRT. measure the color circuite +12vdc+other circuite+12vdc+audio 24vdc. see the block diagram oTHERWISE you must to the repair shop TV

Is there a reset button for Frigidaire AEQ7000EGO? Had a power surge/outage and now dryer has no power, although plugged into electrical outlet.


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you had a power surge at your home, and now your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model#, AEQ7000EGO, has no power. I do see that you have checked to make sure that it is plugged in. I suggest checking the circuit breaker or fuse that the dryer is on. Make sure that the fuse is not blown or the breaker tripped. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The power wont come on we've cheked the power point and it's fine. Just the walker wont start no lights no sounds


Dear Sir:
Thank you by your question, here some answer:
PROBLEM: The power does not turn on SOLUTION: a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor is plugged into a properly grounded outlet . Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications . Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped outlets. b. After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is inserted into the console. c. Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord. If the switch protrudes as shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset the circuit breaker, wait for five minutes.and then press the switch back in. d) Please check the power cord maybe is broker Testign with DVOM(Digital Voltimeter). e) Test the circuit breaker of the House, and Reset, see in outlet box if some wiring is loose.
Thank you in advance, sincerely. Blessing.
If you need additional Help, please contact me.

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

After a power outage the TV will not turn on. The reset light flashes continuously. Pushing the reset stops it, but it resumes flashing as soon as the reset is released. I tried unplugging the TV for...


i have encounter many of these issues with TVs going bad after a power outage which i something that can be complex. Actually almost all the TVs go through this issue sometimes in their life time.
What happens is that TVs have a circuit that controls the on/off phase; the circuit has resistors, diodes and capacitors to do the job. When there is a power surge, which is what happens when the power come back on, a diode, resistor or capacitor goes bad. Capacitors are the main ones that fail under a power surge/outage because they have a set of value assigned to them. The worst that can happens also is that a power transistor can go bad. The unit controls or regulate the power going in to the set.
So, if your TV does not turn on, turns but goes dean right after, or has the standby light flickering; you would need to have it check by a technician. On the other hand, you might want to check if its not just a reprogramming that the set needs.

No picture or sound?? status light flashes in four blinking intervals. I was told it could possibly be the lamp it has never been replaced.


The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television.IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

Change the batteries on the remote, point the remote at the Sony, and hold in the power button for 5-7 seconds. Then depress and re-press the power button - see if you can get the tv remote to respond again.

Then, always try the quick reset:

Do you have power to the base? I've seen this message on several cordless phones if the base is unplugged, the power brick has failed or the power adapter was plugged into a power strip (or surge protector) that has been turned off. It can also happen if the circuit breaker for that outlet has tripped.

First check that the power adapter is plugged into an outlet and the other end is plugged into the base. If the power brick is cold, check that the outlet has power by plugging in a different device (like a lamp) and turning that device on. If there is power, than you need to replace the power adapter or the entire phone (if you can't match the amperage output of the adapter). If there is no power at the outlet and the adapter is plugged directly into the wall outlet, check your circuit breaker for that outlet.

If you used a power strip or surge protector, check if it is on. For a surge protector, check if the surge protection circuit light is on. Replace bad surge protector.

I hope this helps.

(I have seen someone intentionally turn off a surge protector during an extended power outage and then fail to turn it back on after power returned. The individual forgot that they had turned things off before they called for assistance with their phone.)
