SOURCE: Changing electrical Cord from a 3 prong to a 4

Your 4 wire cord has green wires.
On the dryer terminal block,put the white wire on the center terminal.
The green wire goes outside the terminal cover to the nearest screw for grounding.
The black and red wires go to the outside terminals on the terminal block. It does not matter which is right or left.

SOURCE: need to change cord from 4 wire to 3 wire

All you have to do is make sure the middle wire on the strand of three goes to the middle screw the other two just go to either side. Your ground screw just gets tightened down without a wire. I do this everyday.

Changed motor car wont charge found 4 broken wires in harness 2 in ground repared them still wont charge was told pcm needs to be replaced and programmed. what about pigtail on alternator being bad

Yes, repair the alternator wire. The pcm does not control alternator output, it only uses and monitors it. I don't know if it is a problem, but maybe from the bad wiring you found may have affected it. Don't know who told you to replace the pcm, but think I'd get a second...well, a third opinion.
Sorry I can't help you more, good luck.

Need wiring digram

Some units the cord is actually detachable, if you don't think this one is, contact your manufacturer to see if they offer a replacement cord that you can purchase. Some do, some don't.

My skull candy ink'd left bud broke apart,how to re-wire it.

The wires inside the cord have broken, Unfortunately there is really no easy way to fix it, they don't solder well and replacing the cord is the only option but this also may not be successful. Replacing the headphones is the only proper solution

My sound not working on my headphones so how do I fix it ?

By constantly bending the cable back and forth at the same place, you've created fatigue in the cable and caused one or more of the small individual wires inside it to break. The only way to get the headphones to work again is to access the wires just above and below the point of the break. You'll need to have enough of the wire to strip the insulation, solder them together and then insulate with tape or heat shrink tubing. Unfortunately, the resulting repair will not look very pretty, but will work and should work for a long time with proper care. if you can make this repair inside the headphone then the ugly looking splice / solder can be kept out of view and not be subjected to pull strains.

Since you didn't include the brand and model - I don't know which type headphones you have. You may have better luck simply replacing the entire cord, or shortening the existing cord to the point of the break and installing a new plug at that point. If it is too short, you can buy an extension cord for the headphones. This will be the best looking solution, and will work nicely - as long as you don't pull too ******* it - causing the plug to pull out of the jack.

Please rate my reply & good luck!

Now you know not to do that anymore..

I need to change from a 4 prong to a 3 prong but I am confused about the bonding I need this?

Hello, my name is mike. If you are changing the 4 prong to a 3 prong , no you don't need the bonding strap. Yes it is nice to have. All it does is help secure it, However, if you want just wrap some electical wire around where wire goes through plate to help protect any vibration on the cord. As long as wires are good and tight, and secure your good to go, Mike.

If you ever want to talk to me in future and directly to me, here is my link to my page on fixya.

I need to change powercord from a g & e electric ends into like a square black block,going inside dryer.

It depends on what type of cord you are changing to. I think what you're describing as a sqaure black block is the terminal block.
If your new cord has four wires, should be black, white, red, and green. If this is the case, it goes like this:
Black to the far left screw (L2)
White to the middle screw (N)
Red to the far right (L1)
Green goes to the cabinet, usually behind a green screw.
If this is the case, you're changing from a 3 wire cord to a 4 wire cord, and your 3 wire cord is still connected; then behind the middle screw is probably a strap connected underneath it. When you change to the 4 wire cord, bend and push the strap up out of the way for future use if needed. It acts as the ground for the 3 wire cord.
With the 4 wire cord, the green mounted to the cabinet acts as the ground.

If i'm wrong with the above, and you're intalling a 3 wire cord; they could all be the same color (the wires). If so, just put....
The far left wire to the far left screw.
The middle wire to the middle screw with the strap attached to it.
the far right wire to the far right screw.

I hope this is helpful, and that I havent completely misunderstood you and wasted your time. I would be glad to help any further if you need it.

I just bought a top-end MacBook Air 13.3" 4 GB/256 GB for presentations. I also have a Dell M410HD projector, also quite new (a few months old), which works great with the two PCs (one new, one old)...

They (Apple) might be right. It could be that the projector is damaged, like the bulb, or it could be incompatible with your computer, but I don't think that is the case. Try taking the projector to a computer repair place.
