    Thanks for trying, tokenred. I did try to do that, but these wires are different than conventional speaker wires. They're more of a cloth, or fiber, wire.

    I accidentally cut my cord of my Philips SPH2500. I was thinking that I could make the cord shorter. But, I noticed that the wire is different. So, when I tried connecting the wire. I noticed different colors. I did try to connect all the wires based on their colors. But, it didn't work. Besides that I found some fiber like wire. Is it still possible to reconnect the wire and make it work? Please help.

Yep. Same exact thing happened to my HD280's. Damn beagles!

Simply buy replacement cord from Sennheiser. It has a nice .100" pitch header so no soldering is necessary to replace the cord.

The trick is to get the phones apart. I almost destroyed mine before I realized you can take the ear padding off by stretching it from around the plastic earcup. Be careful not to tear the thin fabric on the inside of the pad. I believe you can buy replacements of the pads if you are not so lucky.

There are two screws that hold the phone parts all together. Take these out and you are there. Be sure you watch how all the parts come out because it is a bit of a puzzle to get it all back together. The tiny wire are also very fragile inside the phones so be very gentle.

Putting the pads back on was probably the hardest part. :/

Cheers.

You can repair the cord by cutting out the chewed section and reattach the wires to the corresponding wire on the other end and if you solder the connections then it will last longer. Make sure you isolate and exposed wire with electrical tape.

Can I replace the jack that my puppy chewed off


The puppy probably chewed off the plug. If the plug was molded on, it may be more practical to replace the entire cord assembly.

My puppy chewed the powercord to my tv, what can i do


Try a T.V. repair shop to see if they can replace the cord for you if it is no longer under warranty...and make sure puppy has plenty of rawhides or chew toys to gnaw on while teething. They can't help it. Those teeth need help breaking through.

Puppy chewed the cord. It is an internal cord and does not plug into the back of the tv. Can I replace it myself? Directions or diagram? Where is the best place to get the replacement cord?


Any polarized power cord will work----cautions: the cord where it connects inside will have either a white stripe on one side or a rough surface---that is the neutral side---replacement must be soldered to correct points---you get it backwards and set will work but shock hazard will exist-------if you have enough cord left you can do a splice repair-----I cut them back and offset so not next to each other(the two sides of the cord----get some heat shrink tubing--slide it over each side and down a ways---solder the two ends for each side back together (you will lose a little of the cord) and once soldered slide the shrink tubing down over the soldered parts and heat it with a hair dryer and it will shrink air tight over the solder connection's---you do not want the splices side by side to prevent any possible short----for extra protection once done use some black electrical tape and tape the whole area.

Either replace entire cord or splice repair it. Examine cord end to end for any bare wire showing---if chewed in more than one spot replace entire cord.

Our puppy chewed through the cord on our Rainbow. we paid $45 to have the cord replaced, got it home and it still will not turn on. Any ideas? Thanks!


The service tech who replaced it didn't know what he/she was doing. That's my first guess. If it was working before the puppy chewed through the cord, then if the cord was replaced, it should work. That leads me to believe the cord wasn't installed correctly. Take it back and have them redo it, then make sure it works before leaving the shop.

How to repair cord on sennheiser 590s?


a quick fix is to resolder the the wires and then get a glue gun and coat the wires thsi will keep them seperated when you retape the cable. if you **** the wire coating ie the outer black rubber sleeve first then peel this back so you exspose the wires you can use this to cover the repaired wires.

My daugher has a small George Forman grill and her puppy chewed the cord to it. Is there somewhere we can have it replaced??? Thank you.


Any appliance shop can replace it for you or you could replace it yourself it is not hard to do. Or you could just repair it if he did not chew it off at the housing.

My puppy chewed the electric cord! Can i buy a replacement? Model GGR200RDDS


This should be an obvious one. If the cord is attached HARD, meaning you can't remove it, you have to buy a new unit. punish your puppy as you see fit. If the cord is removeable, meaning there is some sort of lock-in plug end to the cord to the cooking unit, OR a magnetic lock, you can most likely buy a new one. just call up the number for sales that should be printed on your owners manual somewhere. And if you tell me its not there, look harder. every company wants a sale. and you know the company name anyway. GEORGE FORMAN GRILL. Also you can splice the cable if its a chew in the middle. it takes some electrical know-how, but if a puppy chews in the middle, a pair of wire nuts and some electrical tape fixes it. talk to people in the know. CONTACT CONTACT CONTACT! :) The world is not at an end due to a fiesty puppy.

My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones


Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.
