2 Power Management Check

Power management devices, such as power strips, surge protectors, and power conditioners, wear out over time. This is by design; they take surges so your expensive home theater, video game, and sound system equipment does not.

As power management devices near or exceed their end-of-life usefulness, they can start to have problems providing the right voltages or enough amps to your home theater equipment, such as your Television.

The easiest way to test this is to simply plug your device into the wall, rather than into your power management device. If your device works when plugged into the wall, you will know your power management device has failed and it is time to replace it.
