Here is what I see.

In terms of frequency of the bad things happening, Markham (stupidly also dubbed by the mayor as "Silicon Valley North") is as bad. There is not a single install that I do that I don't "force" an automatic voltage regulator for my customers' setup (I only design, installl and calibrate, btw, I only give a shopping list to my client and they can go wherever they want to go to buy the products, I make no comission from any of the equipment sales)

So my hdp 1800 monster power conditioner keeps shutting everything off and turning it back on every 45-1hr and now the screen display doesn't light up when it's on either. I really don't know much about power conditioners so I'm hoping someone can help me out here. Hoping its not dead. frown.gif it is an old house also.

Take my experience with a grain of salt: usually power conditioner last only around 5 years, after that they tend to be unpredictable. I've seen this happen maybe about 20 times in the past 10 years or so.

Remove the monster thing and see if it still happens. If not, that is the fault. If it persists, get an electrician to your house pronto.
