Question about Toshiba TheaterWide 52HM84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Two types of power cords--ones that are soldered into a board inside the set and ones that plug onto a socket inside.
Almost any standard POLARIZED cord will work for the soldered in ones---Polarized cords at the plug have two lugs--one larger than the other---
The large pin goes to the neutral side of the electrical outlet--if replacing a soldered in cord you MUST get them the same.
The larger lug on the cord will have a white stripe on that side or a rough surface.
Neutral to neutral and hot to hot---the hot side in the set goes to the fuse.
This has been around for decades--it prevents the cord from being plugged in backwards (Polarity) and if installed backwards the set will work but you will have 120 volts potential voltage on all external metal fittings like the CABLE fitting---sparks will happen when you try to put the coax to the set and it will feed this back to all sets via the cable in your home.
Get it right the first time----a cord that plugs onto pins will have this also but the plug on the cord if original (Toshiba in this case) will not permit this reverse polarity because of the shape of the plug itself at the end of the cord.
