Question about Televison & Video
My son was trying to move his tv without unpluggung first! So the two metal prongs snapped off of the plug! BRAND NEW TV!! is there a way to fix it??/
Most likely the TV has a two wire cord, the easiest way is to go to the store and replace the end with a new plug, this is pretty simple, cut just the end off the cord that is broken, do not cut too far back so you dont lose any cable length.
go to the local hardware or Walmart store, buy a new 2 wire pug and strip back the insulation from the wire about a half inch, then open the new plug housing feed the wire through the hole in the plug cap, pull just enough through to make sure you have enough to work wtih, twist the copper wire that is sticking out of the insulation and place one wire into each hole in the new plug.
then tighten down the screw to secure the wire in place, try and determine which side of the power cord is ground and wire that wire into the side of the plug that the wider blade.
reassemble the cap on the plug ,make sure there are no bare wires showing and that there are no wires touching each other.
if there are any questions or doubts, please do not attemp this yourself, find a qualified person to do it for you.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!wiring can be dangerous if you are not sure what you are doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One way would be to go to a store that sells electrical parts and buy a replacement plug and install it.
The other would be to replace the whole cord, much more time consuming and probably a bit more expensive. I'd just go and buy a new plug.
