    I purchased a Plasma HDTV and I purchased the following surge protector: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...ector&lp=3&type=product&cp=3&id=1110267376434

    I plugged it into the wall and connected my cable receiver plug and TV plug into it. The "ground ok" light is green but "protection" light is still red.

    The protector uses the screw hole that holds the outlet face cover and screws into the outlet. I removed the outlet screw so that the protector's screw can fit in.

    How do I get the light to turn green?

    the surge is fucked or your outlet is fucked...one or the other. Usually there is an issue with the ground.
