I have an outlet in a bedroom that won't work if my hallway light is on. Not only will it not work, but when I plug something into it you can see a small spark occur. What could be the problem?
I would contact an electrician it could be a fire hazard.
I installed an outlet off of a light switch and it only gets power when I switch off the lights. Please help.
Well, you have the wires connected incorrectly. I suggest you find someone who knows how to do this to come and fix the problem. If you do not know a home handyman who can help you, call an electrician. Hopefully, all you have is the wires switched about, but you may have live wires attached to something else like the metal box, since you don't know how to fix this yourself.
