Question outlet dead

One of our outlets just went dead on us. I tested it and there is no power going to it at all. I changed the outlet to a new one first. I've tested the lights, outlets and switches all around it with no luck. It is not a GFI.

Any suggestions?

Even a receptacle that is not a GFCI receptacle can have a GFCI problem.

Exactly where is this non-working receptacle?

What do you mean by "with no luck"? Do the things around this work or not work? Or do you mean you were unable to conduct the tests for some reasons?

What kind of tester are you using?

I had a major brain fart!!! The plug in was in the back bathroom. I checked everything around it and they all worked fine. Then I thought about the GFI thing again and remembered that the front bathroom had one. I went in, reset it, and what do you know? It worked. I'm sorry for the waste of your time. You guys are great.

Thanks for doing what you do.
