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.

Looking to replace power cord on a hilti TE 6 S hammer drill


you can go to any repair shop and match the cord with a suitable replacement. There is a screw holding the back cover where the cord enters the tool. Hilti uses ferrules to crimp on the cord end for better contact if not you can solder them and after installation give them a slight pull to make sure tightened sufficiently.

Tower won't turn on. There is a green light on the back near the power cord that's flashing green.


Pull the power cord out and allow it to reset. If you still have issues you may need to replace your power supply.

Pull cord


Yes. Most any hardware store can sell you a new cord. If you want to replace both the cord and the pull mechanism you may have to contact a dealer.
