Loud pop from surge protector that results in intermittent sound on Samsung 46" tv

This surge protector is supposed to help with power spikes to all my components. The electricity has not gone out recently in my neighborhood. The "pop" is very loud as if someone knocked on a wooden surface with their knuckles just one swift time. Recently, it has kicked cable receiver power off. Sound has always returned, but I'm very concerned. Please help. Thanks.

I hope the surge protector is separate from your TV. It has Varistors in it that are supposed to pass overvoltage surges (it can happen without the power going out) then recover to normal. But sometimes they overheat, then they can become a fire hazard. Or the contacts in the sockets can get charred and flakey. Anyway sounds like it is fried, the only easy solution is replace it. A careful tinkerer with a good scrounge box could fix it, if you know anybody like that.

After a lightening storm, my power surge strip got hit and damaged everything that was attached to it (i.e. the internet modem, blu-ray player, and Samsung TV). Our TV only has a blue screen. Help


Yep, power spikes kill. Power spikes kill all. Power spikes kill all forever. Replace all and get a new surge protector that costs at least $99. If you never need it it is called insurance. I am in FL the capitol of lightning. High priced surge protectors are cheeeeep when lightning is there.

Had early morning power outage, when power restored the red pwr light comes on and a click is heard and the pwr light go's out. tried unplugging from outlet, no change


If you do not have a surge protector, when the power came back on, a high voltage spike probably damaged sensitive electronic components. Always use a surge protector for any device that has electronic components. The higher the joule rating, the more energy that can be absorbed.

Can anyone advise what might be wrong with my Acer Aspire L100. We had a power cut the other night and it knocked off her computer. The unit will not restart and is completely dead. Are there any simple...


I am assuming you weren't plugged into a surge protector when you lost power. During power outages, spikes in voltage occur, so what happens is there's no mechanism to interrupt that spike by grounding, which surge protectors are designed to do. Any laptop/computer components cannot handle this voltage spike as they are delicate to certain voltage tolerances. I hate to say it, but your laptop is toast.

Does not power up. was on a surge protector. lost power in building several times during hurricane Irene


A surge protector is there to protect against high spikes in electricity and not fluctuations.

The possibility exists that the components were damaged due to fluctuations in the electricity received by your computer. It is for this reason that an UPS or Uninterruptible Power Supply would most likely have saved your computer as it helps provide your computer with a smooth supply of electricity.

One would assume that the power supply is somewhat toast however in most cases it is unfortunately the most fragile component that goes first, being the mainboard. See my published guide to help and diagnose the faulty components, entitled
My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Make sure that the wall outlet is working, test it by pluging a device into the outlet, check that it is being powered. Also in some computer power plugs a Fuse is placed within the actual plug. If this is the case then you may be in luck as it would then be possible that the fuse is blown. One would then replace the fuse and presto good as new.

Let me know how it goes!

Take care!

32 '' CRT won't turn on afer power surge


Follow these steps to troubleshoot the television not turning on:

Make sure the AC power cord is connected securely to a working wall outlet.
NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, unplug 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.

Press the POWER button on the television.
Press the POWER button on the remote control that was supplied with the television.
NOTE: If the television turns on and off using the POWER button on the television but does not respond to the POWER button on the remote control, troubleshoot the remote control.

Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into a known working electrical outlet.
Attempt to turn on the television.
IMPORTANT for the following models only:

KDF-E42A10
KDF-E50A10
KDL-V26XBR1
KDL-V32XBR1
KDL-V40XBR1
Unplugging the above television models from the electrical outlet may only be a temporary fix. The problem may reoccur after several months of use. To completely resolve the issue, a software update is available.

For all other models, service will be required if the troubleshooting steps do not resolve the issue.

Hi,

Surge protector, minimizes voltage spikes or burst that could damage your electronics. You may not see it doing anything but it does. It clips those voltages to the right rating befrore letting them in to your system.

I hope this helps.

Surge protectors


Hey Laduell,

Before anything else, it's probably best to explain the differences between power surges and flux. Power surges (also called voltage or electrical spikes) are generally caused by a sudden, massive increase or decrease in the voltage flowing through an electrical circuit. Flux, on the other hand, can be defined as the actual voltage flowing through a circuit at any given time.

Whenever an electrical device turns on, turns off, or changes modes of operation, it can cause slight disturbances or differences in the voltage flowing through an electrical circuit. Exactly how much of a difference is made may be dependent on the type of electronic device attached, though major electronics and appliances will have a larger "pull" than smaller devices, like clock radios. The more devices are attached to the same circuit, the larger these voltage differences may become.

This fluctuation in voltage - combined with other electrical, magnetic or radio frequency interference ("noise") - has been known to cause problems or even damage in some electrical devices. To prevent such damage, many manufacturers may include "noise reduction" or "EMI/RFI protection" features in their surge protectors.

As both Dynex and Monster Cables appear to include such a feature in many of their products, the price difference you are seeing may simply be related to the number of additional features that the Monster Cable surge protector offers, though this cannot be guaranteed.

If you're in doubt about your purchase, I would strongly suggest contacting either manufacturer for more information. Most manufacturers are able to provide you with detailed descriptions of their product features, and one of the two may be able to point you towards an online FAQ if one is available. Dynex's toll-free hotline is 888-305-2204, and Monster Cable can be reached at 415-840-2000.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Panasonic pv-v4540vcr issue


You took a power SPIKE/SURGE, then the power went off, then on again. It might be fixable-at a cost. Happened to me when the electric company got their wires crossed while repairing a downed line. Actually melted my surge protector. Next time learn what I learned-buy a surge protcetor with the FASTEST response time.

Surge Protector


Surge Protectors are devices that usually you plug your equipment to.. and it protects it from Voltage Spikes that would otherwise destroy the device without it.. saddly not all Surge Protectors are the sam.. some are completely useless..

If you are really serious about protecting your PC not just the hardware but also the data and your work.. might as well invest on a UPS(Uninterrupted Power Supply) unit.. it has everything a surge protector can offer and more..

Thump at the time of shutoff


The amplifier in the sub as with any other amplifier has a capacitor in it. Essentially a battery that holds a charge. When you trun things off such as subs or amps with a powerstrip instead of the intended on off button, the power supply has been cut, but the capacitor is still energizing the unit. So it catches the noise in the line.
