Question Outlets

I was wondering about an outlet in my bathroom. There is power to it but not at the receptical. When I pluged in a tester it stated that i had an open nuetral. I have no idea what this means or how to fix it. Any help would be great.

No magic solution. It takes persistence. Shut off the breaker and open up every outlet (both switches and receptacles) on the circuit. Move any push-in connections to the adjacent screws, and tighten firmly. Check the connections of all wire nuts by trying to pull each wire out. Put a new wire nut on any that are loose. If you find any aluminum wire, post back for more information.
