I was whatching my daughters dog while she was away on business at my home. some how some way he managed to chew off the yellow connector plug for the speaker and chewed it up beyound use, as well as chew...

I was able to catch a glimpse of the back of this unit. I cannot tell by the picture but it is either a RJ11 connector or RJ45 Connector. RJ 11 is the connector on your landline phones and RJ45 connectors are used in computer networking applications. If you have either of these cable laying around you can verify which is which, after that if you do not want to buy the crimp tool for these connectors I would suggest sacrifice whichever cable it ends up being (RJ11 or RJ45) and splice your speaker wire to the two active leads, + and -. Good luck!

My dog ended up shewing the power supply cable. I bought a new one (original) and now It wont turn on. How can I fix it?

try a different wall socket and check the chewed cable and make sure it has no defects near the end where it plugs in. Double check the original cable as well and compare wattage, voltage, and resistance. Write down any model number and try to do an internet search on that number. If the first few hits are power cables, insure it is the one you ordered.

Charger for E1705 beeps and no green light

You are describing a classic wiring short circuit. Either the cables of your power supply or the jack on the laptop itself are damaged and need to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage. There is no logical reason it would work only in certain outlets, that is probably just coincidental to the way you have the cable running while plugged in to each outlet.

Your power supply has two cables, the side leading to the AC outlet is removeable and easily replaced but the side leading to the laptop's jack is not. Start with the AC plug. Leaving everything from the 'brick' to the laptop in a stable position, gently flex the AC cable until you see evidence of the short (usually a break in the wire, possibly chewed by the dog or snagged on the edge of a desk). If so, replace the AC wire. If not, try the same with the laptop side of the brick. If so you usually should replace the entire power supply unless you are real handy with a soldering iron.

If moving the position of the two power supply cables doesn't identify the short, you must suspect the laptop's jack of being loose. This is worst of all because the laptop motherboard has to be removed to gain access to resolder the jack, a professional job that will run probably $100.

My wifes dog chewed the cable that is hard wired into the lcd .

If it's the screw on type on both ends (I'm assuming it's the video cable), you can unscrew both ends and get another VGA cable (under 10 dollars each).
If not, you might want to consider keeping the dog away from cables, it was lucky not to chew on charged wires.

No power

yes,this is repairable maybe when you replace the plug you must check the right cable for the tv set. some cable has a ground wire it means no contact in the power supply.also the power supply check first the fuse,so the power supply continous in the tv set.

Hi Meanmama

Is there still enough cable left from the headphones to the chewed end for comfortable use? If not you might have to replace the whole cable length.

If not, you can just fit a stereo mini jack (3.5 mm diameter) on the chewed end.

For this you will need a soldering iron and some basic soldering skills.

Are you able to solder a plug onto a lead?
