wallplug switches only kill the live

the neutral and earth are not switched.

 

 

if the house trip [RCD] went

that means there was a voltage between the earth and the neutral

[thats what it monitors and trip at 1st sign of current flowing]

:???: do you mean then its the socket at fault? eg not properly wired/earthed

IMO

yes so are mine.

 

 

cost a bit more but worth it for safety

yu can sometimes get a nasty belt between neutral and earth if the phase balancing/loading factor is not correct

 

 

as for if I'm saying the socket is at fault - no.

only that it did its job, the RCD, trip and that's the important thing.

 

 

I've seen a laptop PSU giving 350v on the neutral before now.

 

 

what some people don't realise about swichmode power supplies is they

can run at upto a 1000v inside because of how they work.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hello, Just to update.

 

 

I ended up contacting the supplier HP directly who replaced the charger and have taken the old one away for investigation.

 

 

They were really nice about it and think its likely to be a fault with the charger.

 

 

I've been using it in the same socket since and having no issues.

 

 

Very still couldn't care less really and offered me £20 off as my complaint wasn't dealt with correctly.

 

 

They didn't really address any of my concerns at all but I'm just glad I've got a working machine at the moment. Thanks for all of your advice

sounds good. no faffing about, they sent a replacement straight away. ie what very shld have done/arranged.

 

sometimes better to go direct to the manufacturer.

 

maybe complain further re verys obstinence?

IMO
