Question I Need Some Outlet Help

All the outlets on one side of my house are on the same circuit breaker. There is a GFI outlet first in the line that works fine, but every outlet after that has no power. I tried replacing the GFI outlet but that didn't work. I sure could use some ideas on where to go next!!??

The most likely possibility I can think of is that you reversed "line" and "load" when you installed the new GFCI. If not that, then you either made a bad connection at the GFCI or the nearest outlet to it has a bad connection. If the GFCI is tripped, you need to reset it. If it won't reset, then you likely have a ground fault.

Well, the GFI outlet is working fine though, I have tested and meetered it at 110v. Just all the outlets after the GFI don't work. I have checked the wiring at the other outlets and they seem to be fine??

Push the test button that's on the GFCI receptacle and then push the reset button. If this doesn't work, you'll need to evaluate your wiring connections to and out of the GFCI receptacle.
