    Dear All,

    Wondered if you'd be kind enough to clarify page 258 bottom paragraph on testing AC outlets. Sorry - it's more than likely to be me but he doesn't seem to be describing what he means when he refers to testing the outlet - what is the outlet or that which needs to be tested as suggested in this paragraph ???? Any suggestions ??

    Many Thanks

    Well i have never seen the book, but I would suggest Mr Meyers, is refering to the mains socket on the wall.. ie 240V, 13amp. Though the author is American i believe, so this would be 110V over there.

    Yes this is correct 110V, but I imagine he means testing the socket as in try plugging the device into a different socket if power is restored to the device then that socket is janky, and should be repaired by an electrician, but I do not own the book. This is just the advice they said in the Sybex, when troubleshooting power always start at the wall. and work your way down the line.

    I noticed that as well. The text is wrong, the diagram is right.

    EDIT: Just noticed, that wasn't the question. Never mind, now you all know.
