Yep. Also, I'd try a completely different outlet if possible to reduce stress on the wiring. Run an extension cord if you have to.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

you can flip your breaker switch's to see what outlets are connected to what circuits if you want to,then you no what outlets you can use~

forget about the fancy talk and just try plugging your light into other outlets until it works ,use a extension cord if you need to !

circuits are like channels ,you kitchen may be on one circuit while your living room my be on another and to flick the breaker switch's [the main power box]is how you can see what runs on what circuit ,and if you overload a circuit with to much power it will trip the breaker off or in your case your serge protector
