Last week I suffered a power outage.When power was restored my unit did not power on.Ichecked the fuse,it is ok because power is there,and I get readings throuhgout the power circuit,but the front of the unit shows no power and nothing works, can you shed some light.I checked for repair manuals around some shops and the closest I got was Maryland, and 12 days to ship.

If it's that delicate, but you still want to keep it, you could try changing-out the mains fuse in the unit for a really, really low amps one.
You might be getting a power-surge as the power goes off, or as it comes back on. A very low fuse, might blow on the surge, which will leave you needing to replace the fuse, but not the capacitors.?
Best of luck.
If the device was plugged in when the outage started and / or when power was restored - it may have suffered a power outage related voltage "spike" (or instantaneous rise in voltage greater than it is designed to handle).
Unplug it for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If it fails to function you may need repairs or replacement. Try a different monitor on the computer before condemning it - it may be a problem with the computer's video card instead.
Remove all power from the phone., batteries and the AC adapter for about a minute and if there is a reset button on the base reset it then reinsert the batteries (if it has batteries) and restore the 12 volt adapter. If that doesn't work the unit is probably toast and suffered damage from a voltage spike and fried the internal electronics. Good Luck!
Your home may have suffered an electrical power surge, check the end of the electrical cord, there you may find a built in surge suppressor with two buttons, depress the reset button. If one does not exist, then you must access the interior power supply and search for a low voltage electrical fuse. Inspect and replace if burned.
HI. this will happen during most outages. there is a fuse located inside the power supply device that is used to power your unit. simply remove the cover off the power supply box, and replace the fuse inside. this will correct the issue.
***((Now, if the fuse is OK, and not harmed, this will confirm that the power supply has failed. It should be replaced in this case))
Is the outlet ok? Can you plug somethng else into the outlet to see if the fuse or breaker controlling the outlet is ok? If there is power at the outlet, unplug the unit and remove the outside cover.
Look for a blown fuse on the motherboard. Replace it with the EXACT value of the original fuse. You can purchase a new fuse at Radio Shack or hardware store or auto parts store. Try powering up the unit again and see if it works now or whether the fuse blows again. If it blows again, the power supply may have been damaged. Was this a power outage or surge? Was anything else in your home affected?
