Earlier today I noticed a light go out, and of course everything else that was in the room went off as well. I went to the breaker box to check and see if the one for that room had tripped, but it had not.
I checked one of the outlets with an outlet tester, and it is telling me that the hot/ground wires are reversed. I turned off the breaker and replaced the outlet. Turned it back on, and I am still getting the same message on the tester.
One thing I noticed was if I turn off the light switch to the room, the tester message changes from "hot/ground reversed" to "open neutral".
Also, I tested the outlet with a multi-meter, and it is getting 120 volts on the hot side, but it is also getting 60-80 volts on the neutral wire. Any ideas as to what could be going on?
