We've lost all power in one room. We Replaced all the outlets in the room and the breaker for the room. all breakers and outlets read hot but no electrical is working in the affected room.

  • You replaced the receptacles and then you lost power, or you replaced all the receptacles because you lost power? – Tester101 Jun 6 '15 at 1:09
  • I lost power before replacing the outlets and breakers – kristi Jun 6 '15 at 1:17

    How do the outlets "read hot"? With a multimeter, circuit tester, or ? What led you to suspect that all of the outlets and/or breaker needed to be replaced? It might give us some clues on how to help you. – TomG Jun 6 '15 at 2:06
  • Used a multimeter as far as why I replaced breaker and outlets.....because its logical – kristi Jun 6 '15 at 2:18

    Maybe one of the outlets in that room has problem with the neutral wire connection??? I read that. – kristi Jun 6 '15 at 2:37

This is almost certainly a neutral problem. The trouble will be in the last working device or the first dead one. If everything on the circuit is out it could be a bad termination in the panel.
