comment How do I troubleshoot power receptacles?
True enough - I guess I just prefer to get the clutter out of the way and start with the simplest thing possible to find out what works. But you can certainly do some of the above testing without unwiring it, just if the wiring in the receptacle is all over the place, you might be chasing a dead end for a bit.
