First thing to try is unplugging power cord for five minutes, to see if it clears.
When it is the fuse the unit does not start at all (no light), try the unplugging, open all doors and close them back, after power surge some of the sensor can be stuck on error message.
If it does not clear the error you need to call a technician. He will connect a computer with code reader to the copier to diagnose the problem, in case of internal error.

I had a power surge in my house and my EMERSON 900W MICROWAVE OVEN MW8999RD control pad is not working. The lightbulb works and the tray spins slowly when I open the microwave door. However, nothing

I hope it's still under warranty. Think about getting a replacement, and about next time: Get a surge protection device between the oven and the wall plug! I have suffered from power surges in my house as well, and a surge protector is the only cure.

2 years ago I purchased a Boston micro-system cd /clock radio. It has worked fine but now it shows a slight light when I plug it it to a a power outlet but I try to activate them there is no response...

Thank you for your question.

There is a good chance that this radio got a power surge which may have been caused by the power going out and then when it comes back on, there is a surge. In some cases, a "brown out" does more damage than a surge.

For example, if a telephone pole fell over and the power lines were arcing in your neighborhood, your lights may flicker for several minutes. This can damage many electronic items in your home.

If this clock has a battery backup, try removing the battery and replace it.

If there is no response, you may want to take it to an independent electronics repair person and have him check the power circuit.

Chances are that the circuit board behind the ac power cord will be damaged.

Technician a says that a line condition protects a computer system from high-voltage surges and low-level voltages.technician b says that a surge suppressor protects a computer system from high-voltage...

Line conditioners and surge protectors both help to prevent voltage in your devices from shooting up and damaging computers, game consoles, or other machines which use a power cable rather than batteries. In everyday use line conditioners can prevent changes from voltage in making the lights or dim or brighten, meaning you can have a consistent supply of 120 volts per second.
Surge protectors on the other hand are smaller and cheaper than line conditioners, these prevent high-voltage from being transmitted to your device, so excessive power doesn't cause your machine to die, or suffer catastrophe. Surge protectors needs to be replaced every few years so in the long run this can make them more expensive than line conditioners.

I plug in the power supply the notebook doesnt power up but the green light on the supplier goes off?

Unplug the notebook, take out the battery.

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds

Now replug in your notebook

If it powers on, then the unit suffered a minor surge and you should from this point use a surge protector from now on.

If it does not power on, then the unit suffered a severe power surge and now the motherboard is blown and needs replacing or buy a new notebook.

Sounds like you should get estimates and turn in on homeowners insurance. Power surges are very destructive and you have lost the control board at least and maybe some switches. Eric

Power surg

If your machine has suffered a power surge it is likely to have affect the main board or ROM chip (On the mainboard) with symptoms explained. The ROM will make a pattern of beeps but if its continual it will probably be the main board. It will be more than likely not worth repair if out of warranty if it is the main board.

Frigidaire Tumble Action Washer - lights flash, beeps, does nothing else...

If you have had a lightning storm or power surge it may have fried the electronics panel. That is what happened to mine. Once it is fixed you should put a surge suppressor on it that is rated for major appliances.
