Ok if its only the rf cable and the ac cord yes you can do it your self.you have one cable out from the sat reciver going to the dish. Find an area that the pooch didnot chew through cut off the bad part of the wire. find the wire that goes to the tv set. if its the coax disconnect from the reciver on both sides and go to the store and buy a new cable (unless you have coax wire and know how to put on f fittings) also while your there buy a small extenstion for the other cable you cut. also your gonna need a a female barrel connector as we;ll as an rg6 type rf fitting for the end you cut. have the guy at the store explain to ya how to put on a f fitting. If the ac cord was chewed buy a simple cheap extenstion cord too. Go home and first put back on the cable you took off the output of the sat reciver and the other end to your tv set. then put on the f fitting the guy explained to ya how to put on and then install the barrel connector then the short extention wire to the other side of the barrel connector then the other end of the rxtenstion cable to the sat output. Now if the power cord is chewed im surprised the pooch is not fryed!!!lol Simply cut off the bad part take the extention cord and cut of the end you dont need take off about 1 and a 1/2 inches of the insulation on bothe parts(reciver and cord) twist together and tape separatly or use wire nuts on them . then you are good to go. BUt one more little thing are you using video cables between the tv and the sat. reciver?? well why didnt you say so LOL simplyu pull out of both ends and go to rat shack or something like them and buy an inexpensive pair of cables and remeber yellow is always video red is alway right audio and white is left audio Hope this clears things up for ya.!!!!

My dog chewed up the power cable. Any ideas for getting a replacement? Warranty has long been expired.


Most power cables are universal with only a handfull of different types. You could check if power cable for your sub woofer is the same with same amount of pins(2 or 3) and if its the same you could use your system without the woofer for now.. Just about any Electrical Dealer shop(ie.. sells tv's,computers etc) should have a replacement cable for you- just take in the end that connects to your stereo.

No power to computer speakers


if the cable is fixed correctly then it would seem when your dog chewed through the cable the cables met and caused a power short out that has blown some of the internal electronics components there fore the unit will not work. taking into consideration the price of jbl creature speakers it would be cheaper to replace the unit than to have repaired ..

i hope this helped

Yes there are ways to splice cables together, This depends on the extent you would like to go to. if splice needs replaced near end replacement end can be bought at radio shack. You can splice wires together by striping the wires back and reconnecting them together making sure all wires are connected together and not touching one another, Twist red to red white to white and ground to ground, wrap with electrical tape each by them self use heat shrink to make it look a lot better.

My wifes dog chewed the cable that is hard wired into the lcd .


If it's the screw on type on both ends (I'm assuming it's the video cable), you can unscrew both ends and get another VGA cable (under 10 dollars each).
If not, you might want to consider keeping the dog away from cables, it was lucky not to chew on charged wires.

No power


yes,this is repairable maybe when you replace the plug you must check the right cable for the tv set. some cable has a ground wire it means no contact in the power supply.also the power supply check first the fuse,so the power supply continous in the tv set.
