Need a replacment power cord. how do I order one?????

I'm not sure where to order an OEM cord, but if the cord is damaged between the unit and the plug, it can often be repaired and still be safe. It generally requires heat-shrink but(t)-connectors and/or a heat-shrink covering for the damaged insulation area. If you know anyone that has used those things, either in something mechanical or something electrical, the process is the same, and you could see if that person could look at the damage.

We had bad weather lights went out ..had tv plugged into a power surge plug that i have power back tv wont come on

Some will say a surge protector will save electronics. I can tell you they may not help at all. A power surge is extremely fast and can over ride the surge protector. If you think you can repair this TV, I would certainly remove the back cover and inspect. Occasionally the only problem for repair is to replace the main fuse. Remember, this happens rarely. Most cases after a surge the TV will need to be inspected by a TV tech. Almost anything, in a power surge will damage the TV. There is no certain area that will not be damaged, expect it any where. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

How do u repair a freeze plug or replace it

I would not recommend repairing it although there are materials out there that say it will fix the leak. You'll need to pull the old plug out with a slide hammer or pry bar. BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE the area that the freeze plug seats into on the engine block. After removal, clean the area very well. Use a sealant (auto store has a variety) and a socket or seal driver to tap in the new one. Rubber expansion plugs are used in an EMERGENCY, See this website for pics and details:

Good Luck

My aerial has had the plug pulled off and I want to fix it. Do you have a wiring diagram or can you tell me which pins go where Thanks Chris

Repairing MMMC or MMX plugs is no guarantee that they will work. Often when these plugs are ripped out there is other damage. it is such a minute area of solder you would need a special spot solder unit ($6000) as this is what is used to integrate components onto the board.
I repair GPS for a living but to fix this it is easier to change the whole board than to try and fiddle around with this.

Dropped daewood tv from bed. no pictures.

The circuit board inside is cracked and has broken circuit traces. This is common if a set is dropped. The usual area that gets damaged is around a part called the horizontal output (or "flyback") transformer. It's the part with a red wire leading up to a rubber cap connected to the top of the picture tube. The flyback is fairly heavy and usually there's not much support for the circuit board in that area. When the set gets dropped, the weight of the flyback can break the circuit board. This can sometimes be repaired depending on the extent of the damage. Often the breaks are very obvious and sometimes not. Some of the circuit traces are very thin and close together which makes finding and repairing the damage difficult. In some cases other parts and areas can be damaged as well. This kind of repair requires considerable troubleshooting and soldering skills, so you might want to let a professional shop give you an estimate for the repair.
