I recently moved and lost the power cord to my surround sound. I have been to every store and can't find one to replace it. My system is abouit four years old and is a Philips mx3900 dvd digital surround system, and where you would attach the power cord says -ac mains. I would like to order one if possible and would like to know where to do this. Any help would be greatful. PS am living in Ontario Canada
Check Techni-Contact in Montreal's website. Look for power cords. There are a few differently shaped ends but you should find one there. Also, call 416-482-2922 (Mt. Pleasant Stereo) in Toronto. They usually have all types.

Re: lost power cord
They list power cords for the MX3900D37, MX3900D/37S, MX3900D399, and the MX3900D/99.
The AC Cord Philips Part Number is 242207098246 and the price (without shipping) is $7.50. I cannot tell if the cord will work in Canada, since they do not show a picture.
Since you live in Ontario, I would give them a call at 1-866-925-7278. (If you can call a USA 1-800 toll free, 1-866 is also a toll free number.) They are based in Kingston, NY 12401.
I do not have any financial stake in this company. I have bought from them in the past with no problems.

In the past, whenever I needed a specialized replacement cord (as an electrical engineer) I went to this company: North American and International AC power cords and cord sets from... I have been able to find anything I ever looked for, and I see they have no minimum order. Another alternative is to find a local Goodwill or consignment store and browse through their older electronics (and hot plates and such). Old stuff sells so cheaply it's worth it just for the cord.
Hi, if you look on the back of the movie player while it is playing you'll see a steady red light on the back-that is the receptacle for a " toslink ": cable-a single fiberoptic cord that provides a surround signal to theatre system. Also there may be a " coaxial " surround out put to a receiver. this will not be lit up red. It will be an " rca " connection with black inside siver circle. The fiber optic Toslink is available at any department store/radio supply and the " rca " cord at any department store.I hope this helps and good juck,Prodzilla.
It looks like it just uses the regular spring-loaded clips to hold the speaker wire in place. All you need is regular copper braided speaker wire, nothing fancy. Then you strip about half an inch of insulation off the end of the wires, and pull back the spring loaded clip and put the wires in, then release the clip so it clamps down on the bare metal.
Speaker wire you can get from anywhere that sells the actual systems. I know places like Radio Shack (The Source by Circuit City) sells spools of it. Any other electronics store probably sells it too. It's common stuff.
Should be OK as long as it's capable of carrying the wattage the system is pulling. The TH-42PX60U is rated at 320 watts max - you should be OK as most computer cables are rated well above that. However if you're worried, us the power cord from a laser printer or copy machine - it will definately carry the load.
