        Wiring trouble Sign In/Join 
        posted
        I just replaced the outlets and switch in a bedroom. The switch also controls one of the outlets. I made sure to put wires on exactly the same as they were with the old outlet/switch. Now the switch does not work the outlet, however the outlet has power. I checked the switch and there is no power to it now. Any help with a fix?

        Bet you did not remove the tab between the two black wires like the old one was.
