Telling us what you intend to do is a good start.
What are you trying to switch?
Is this a two gang box?

If there is no power on any of the wires then you need to find out why. There is probably a bad connection upstream of this box. Unless you are capable and willing to start opening up boxes and checking connections this might be a good time to call in an electrician.


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
