Electrical question

I have no power on the wiring on a GFCI outlet. I tested the breaker and it has power. I also tested all other GFCI outlets and they are working. What could be my problem?

Electrical question

What exactly have you tested on the outlet that is not working?

How many wires do you see in the box with the outlet and what colors are there?

Electrical question

If downstream receptacles aren't working, make sure you didn't reverse the line terminals and load terminals of the GFCI with your wires.
