U there Mike
Expert:  Mike G. replied 11 months ago.
Well the best thing possible is a visual inspection without a tester. You'll need to open the panel and look to see if there are signs of arcing and if there is corrosion on the terminations. Let me know what you find. It takes time to read and answer, I'll be with you till the end.

Looks fairly clean now the outlet that runs the TV wont work at all
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Any idea
Expert:  Mike G. replied 11 months ago.
Well without a tester there isn't anything more that can be done. Pick up a Volt/Con type tester at any home centers and we can continue.
