Re: Need new power cord

Recommend against soldering the damaged ends together - it's ugly, will never be especially safe, and risks being unreliable too. Have a look at the TV end of the cable. Does it go straight into the TV, or is there a plug that goes into the TV. If there's a plug, just pull it out, take it along to shop that sells TVs and they'll sell you a new one off the shelf. If the cable goes straight into the TV, the solution is just a tiny bit more involved. First, look at the mains plug to check whether it is moulded on, or rewirable. If moulded on, you will need both a new plug, and some flex. If rewireable, you'll only need the flex. Either way, take the cut-off end to Home Depot or somewhere similar and buy something the same shape and size (thickness of the wires is the important thing here). To fit, carefully take the back off the TV and look at how the existing cord was connected and secured before removing it and putting the new one on in exactly the same way. Don't forget to push the wire through the hole in the case (if there is one) before connecting it up. Once the flex is fitted to the TV, fit the plug to the other end. Safety/reliability tip 1 - while the back is off, try not to touch any electrical or electronic components inside the TV other than the power terminals you're supposed to be working on. Saety tip 2 - when renewing a power cord, wire the new cord to the appliance before fitting the plug to the other end of the cord - amazing how many people have helpfully been plugged into the mains in the middle of a job.

My samsung turns on and off randomly

Same issue on my 55 inch Samsung DLP tv. Browsed youtubeand found 3 suggestions...tried all 3 together, don't know which one (s) worked: 1. After UNPLUGGING power cord and removing lower back panel and carefully removing bulb(1 month-old bulb -don't touch glass) thoroughly and carefully (using only plastic/rubber non-metallic vacuum attachments) vacuumed fans and all cavities- also used long, narrow feather duster for narrow spaces and fanblades. There's a hidden fan that I could only get to by sliding out a circuit board on the right side...don't touch metal parts and may have to disconnect a wired plug or 2. Be sure you know how to pinch connectors to pull them off and be sure you are capable of reconnecting them. 2. Inspected little blue switch that moves down when bulb entry door is installed. Dusted and vacuumed it and made sure it worked correctly when reinstalling the bulb door later. 3. Reinstalled bulb carefully, making sure the screw was installed tightly. One youtube guy said sometimes removing and reinstalling the bulb is all you need to do if the tv turns off by itself. Set works fine now, but can't say which things helped, but after 8 years, there was a lot of dust that could have interfered with the cooling, so vacuuming was a great idea.

The electricy plug and cord

If The Unit Is Under Warranty There Is A Good Chance You Will Void The Warranty. But If The Unit Isn't Under Warranty I'd Go Ahead And Pull The Real Of The Tv And Repair The Power Cord Just Make Sure Everything Is As It Should Be Before You Put The Tv Back Together And Make Sure There Are No Exposed Wires Anywhere.

Power cord came out the back of the tv

1. Replace the power chord.

WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE: Do not attempt to work on your set without another person present who is trained in CPR

If the power chord is a plug in type , plug it back in.
if the power chord was ripped out , you need to repair it.
if the power chord was broken before you discovered it, you will also need to repair it.

I do mean a proper repair not just an electrical tape job.

Thank you for selecting FixYa!

No Power

Try removing the Green CRt PC voard that is on the bottom of the green Picture tube which is the center one. Then replace the fuse and see if your set powers up if it does you need a new gree tube. Just be sure the crt board doesnt touch anything while you try it. then let me know what happened, if you need a tube they arent available new any longer but I have a source for good used picture tubes,

can you send a pic? if not, where there is two lines, you need to strip the wire, and then solder it back.
