power outage - many components not turning on

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
victim of a 3 day power outage here, but when power returned a few things would not turn on: in my room connected to 2 different power strips were a panasonic plasma TV, a computer, a small portable heater, a small lamp, and etc all stopped working (will not turn on). other things did work though, and i checked the outlets on the strips -- all working according to my cell phone charger. also, computer in another room not working.

however, 2 tvs in 2 other rooms are both operating fine. just seems to be the ones in my room. now i thought one reason might be that the current is too weak to power everything now but that doesn't seem logical (things won't turn on at all). i took my little heater to other outlets in the house and it wont work -- the little led light is on when plugged in, but turning on the heat = no effect.

i also had small touchpad charger w/usb cable connected during the outage/power return, and that does not work.

my new theory is that sometime during the outage/return of power a lot of components in the electronic devices were ruined. are fuses still used in modern electronics? PSU = busted for computer?

if you have any experience with this or knowledge, please let me know. also, what can i do to fix or replace my items?

mobo/cpu = gigabyte ud2h and intel 2500k. does intel have any warranty?

was your stuff on a surge protector? Power outages have a bad habit of killing stuff because of the surges that come back into the lines when they turn things back on. Also the sage on the lines can hurt stuff too before the outage.
