My wife's flat iron had an issue with losing power while moving the iron around. I at first thought it was a cord issue, but before tearing into the cord, I disassembled her iron by popping off the two "CHI" covers from either side of the fulcrum. This revealed a screw which when taken out allows you to push the pin out releasing the handle's spring mechanism. Once opened, you can see the power-swivel thing-a-ma-jig and I saw the positive (red) wire had come off of the little flat board mounted on the swivel piece. I simply re-soldered the wire back on to the flat board and BAM! Good as new!

On my chi it was a black and white wire but they had a short before the swival part. you can get a new cord for 15 plus ship but a free fixx is allways good. the black tape isnt too pretty though.

    Where did you buy your cord from? Does it have to be a special cord?

Disassemble the straightener, pull out the round plastic piece connected to the circuit board. cut the red and yellow wires off as close to the circuit board as you can, and strip them. cut the power cord directly below the thick, ribbed part. strip the white and black (pos and neg). couple the WHITE TO YELLOW and BLACK TO RED. make sure to test out and make sure the LED comes on. please be careful and don't kill yourself.

seems to me that this was a planned failure.

I could not find a replacement cord either.

I had the same problem with a friend of mines CHI. The probelm was the neatral wire had broken at the bottom of the connector that connects it to the CHI. I cut back some of the rubber to find the actual break, **** spliced the wire back together and then rubber taped and the coated it with regulat vinyl tape, not real pretty, but it works now.
