Question Timer light switch with 3 sets of black and white wires.

I removed a timer light switch and behind it was 3 sets of black and white wires. I have combined the 3 white wires together. I found the lead in power black wire and connected it to the switch and combined the left over black wires but now the light won’t turn on

Welcome to the forums.

Normally you would change the device without opening splices.

What was there..... a timer or a switch ?
How was the old device wired ?
Where all three black wires on it ?

More than likely...... there were two wires connected to the same switch terminal. They need to be reconnected again.
