Replacing The power cord for Zenith H3242DT

Okay so this girl i know has this TV and the power cable is cut on it. I told her to go and get a replacement plug real easy right? Well she buys a 3 pronged cable like you would use for an external HD cut off the female end and hands it to me to fix. Money is tight so this is what we have to work with.

Out of the TV the cable has blue, brown, green w/white striped wires and there's also what looks like a bare wire just hangin out in there. the wire she gave me to use to fix it has green, brown, and black wires and that's it. Which wires go to which ones? And if it's not possible would i be able to hooke the wires up directly in the back of the TV. then comes finding out how to connect it there as well.

Hey, Just follow the colors. Green goes with green Striped wire, Brown with Brown, and Blue with Black. The bare wire is called "Earthing wire, and can be ignored.

No sound when using coax...


Do you use AV inputs for your Cable box? If so, try swapping the audio inputs in the TV, that is, interchange the AV inputs for your DVD and cable box. If sound is audible in a different input, then the Audio input (for Cable) on your TV is faulty. One simple suggestion, Why don't you route your Cable signal through the Tuner of your VCR?
