If you would like to power off the device, you need to unplug the power cable. Be sure to unplug the power cable from the socket if you suspect either the cable or the device is physically damaged in some way.

For your own protection and protection of the device, EtcherPro comes with a grounded AC power cable which only fits a grounded mains socket. If you don’t have a grounded socket installed, you should contact a specialist who can safely install an appropriate grounded socket. Do not attempt to power on the device without a connected grounding wire or with a power cable that does not meet the original specifications.
