Introduction

The device's power cord breaks easily, stopping it from delivering power to the device. In this guide, we will test for power by using a voltmeter.

Make sure the device is unplugged before beginning disassembly!

Color coordinating wire groups make it easier to identify the wire groups during reassembly. Inside the device, there are three junctions with wires joined by Phillips-head screws. The first is connected to two wires, and the other two are connected to three wires each.

  • Inside the device, there are three junctions with wires joined by Phillips-head screws. The first is connected to two wires, and the other two are connected to three wires each.

  • Unscrew the screw at the junction near the opposite side of the device from the front panel.

  • Label each of the two wires at this junction with a single color of tape.

Locate the two wires which are connected directly to the power cord. Unlike the other wires, they are sheathed in a particularly thick, dot-textured plastic.
  • Locate the two wires which are connected directly to the power cord. Unlike the other wires, they are sheathed in a particularly thick, dot-textured plastic.

  • Make sure the voltmeter is on and set to a setting beween 120 and 500V. For most voltmeters the proper setting for this is the 200V setting.

  • Attach one of the voltmeter's probes to the metal portions of each of the two wires connected to the power cord's end on the device

  • The voltmeter should read a number significantly above 20V. A reading between 100 and 150 V indicates that the device is getting enough power. A lower number indicates the power cord is broken.

Conclusion

This guide alters no parts of the device, so no reassembly is needed from these steps.
