    Quoted from chefjoez:

    Do you have any electronics knowledge beyond replacing a fuse? A fuse blows for a reason, so you would need enough electronics knowledge to go beyond just replacing a fuse that would likely just blow again. Do you have a DMM or voltmeter and know how to use it?

    If you can't answer yes to these questions, you are best off calling a tech.

    It could be a fuse.
    It could be a loose connector.
    It could be a bad transformer.
    It could be a broken wire.
    It could be not plugged in.
    It could be a bad switch.

    What DOES it do when you turn it on?

    Any lights? Any sounds? Any LED flashes? Anything smoke?

    We'll be glad to help you out but we need a little more information.
