Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.

Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 6 months ago.

Do you still need help with this?
*This is not your answer, just an inquiry to see if you still need help. I'm here to help when you're ready. Due to the nature of the problem, it may take a few tries back and forth before we finish the troubleshooting and fix the problem.

Ok, the first thing to check is the power cable. Does yours have a junction in the middle of the cord? If so, make sure that is plugged in tight. Tell me if that does the trick. That would cause the whole unit not to work.

Small cylindrical piece in the middle of the cord. It is attached on both sides.
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 6 months ago.

Yep, pull that apart, then push it together so it's very snug. Those cable's contacts can spread out, and go bad over time. I may need to find you a new cable. It should work if you push really hard to make sure it's making a connection. You may have one around the house, since it's AC, it doesn't matter which way you plug it in.

Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 6 months ago.

Unless of course one side is square, then it only goes in one way.

It does not plug and unplug. It is attached on both sides
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 6 months ago.

Ok, is there power at the outlet? Are you able to power a lamp at that exact plug in?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
have tried a few outlets that work with other items
