    60 years old residential installations did not have grounded circuits or receptacles in most cases. If the home was not rewired after around 1960 or later, chances there is no ground wire in the cables.

    Do the duplex receptacles have a ground (U-Ground duplex receptacles).

    Circuit checker: indicated open ground: likely no ground wire in the cables.

    Tabs removed:

    These tabs are not easily removed. I have never seen one break of due to age and normal usage. The receptacle body would break first. Someone has deliberately removed the tabs.

    Are the tabs removed on both the Brass terminals (Live side) and the Silver Terminals (Common). Normally, the Brass tab should be the only one removed.

    Is there a wire connected on both Brass screws (Live side).

    If yes, then: Is the a switch that does not seem to do anything in the Living Room or at the Living Room entrance?

    If you find such a switch, plug a lamp into the receptacle not working and turn on the switch.

    Good Luck.
