The power cord has been pulled on and wiggled around until now i feel that it has shorted out inside. the male portion of the plug inside the case is loose. before i lost all power i was able to bend the cord to one side and it had power as long as pressure was on it in that position. now that dosen't even work. if i could open the case maybe i could resolder the connection but i can't figure how to open the case properly. any help would be appreciated

Parts are few for these machines (all I found was the blower tube). That being said, you can carefully cut off and remove the faulty male plug and replace it with a repair piece like you would add onto a damaged extension cord (outdoor type). They are made of plastic, but are fairly sturdy. Just carefully cut away the old male connector (the shrod isn't really necessary and remove the wiring from it. After purchasing the male-type plug replacement, rewire it and you will be set to go. To eliminate the male cord and the female end of the extension cord you will use from pulling apart when in operation, just loop the female end cord around the cord of the blower and it will hold in place.
You can get an exact adapter from eBay link below, they are quite cheap. Sometimes the break is close to the end of the plug, and sometimes, the actual solder on the socket inside the unit is fractured, causing intermittent connections. Often we are able to use the old cord Plug, and graft on the new power Lead. However it is wired and regardless of how many wires are inside, the is only One - Negative, the OUTER contact. The INNER Contact is Always + Positive, sometimes there are three wire inside, TWO are Plus, and ONE, the shield, is negative.
Sounds like a bad connection on the inside of the power cord socket on the back of the monitor. If you feel confident enough to take the back off just remove the power cord, remove the back and then wiggle the pins inside the socket 1 at a time and look in the back of the socket at the same time to see if the wires are loose on the pins, or if the wires from the pins are loose on the circuit board. May just need resoldering. If you can find out what it is it could save you money getting it repaired, unless you can do it yourself.
It sounds to me like the power cord has a short. To test your power cord you need a multimeter. Test continuity threw the power cord, from the male plug prongs, to the wiring inside the vacuum. You should get continuity from one prong on the male plug to only one wire on the other end of the power cord. If you test one prong but get a readying on 2 wires, then it is crossed. If you dont get any continuity on one or more of the wires, you have a short. A common place for a short in the cord is the male plug, you can find a replacement male plug at a hardware store and cut off the old one. When wiring the male plug, black wire goes to the gold post, white wire goes to silver, and green wire goes to the green post.
If your carbon brushes on the motor are warn, then that could cause the motor to stop, but other parts of the vacuum should still work so I dont think it is that.
With the power OFF repeat POWER OFF GENTLY insert the paper clip until the drive tray starts to move open make sure you are pushing clip in the right hole, and when the clip is inside make sure you feel it touch a button that you can apply a little pressure to so, wiggle the clip around until you feel it resting on a button then push it in, suppose to eject the cd tray
I think you're goin to have to replace your" dc-jack" as it's called. This is where your AC cord plugs into your laptop.DC-jack problems are very common in laptops.Over time they wiggle loose just enough to mess up the solder connection on the motherboard.Try gently wiggling your AC cord where it plugs into your computer ,if you screen returns to normal when you wiggle the plug a certain way,then you've most likely got a bad dc-jack.
