    I'm hoping someone can help me with something. I recently came home to find that the power had gone out and some breakers had been tripped. Several electronic appliances would not power on using any outlet. It was later discovered by the the electric company when they came out that night that a neutral wire had become disconnected from the weather head attached to the house. The result electrical issue took out an air conditioner, an oven, three digital alarm clocks, a dvd player and a few other devices It seemed to mostly disable things with an electronic display.
    I took apart a couple of the clocks but could see no visible damage on the inside (fried wires, singed boards. Why would there not be anything obvious to see? Can they be saved?
