How to hard wire the power supply for a 2.4 ghz wireless camera model 49-2535


Warning: not only would this void the manufacturer's warranty but it could also damage or destroy the product; & you should take or use the necessary precautions to avoid electric shock or any other health risks. Since the AC power cord plugs into the back of the camera, hardwiring a power cord would require unit disassembly & replacing the manufacturer's intended power cord connection with the same power cord or one rated with the same specifications at your own risk to cut off the camera plug-in, to separate the wires, & to anchor these wires to the power jack wires of the same polarity. This could require the use of a multimeter & the use of a plastic plug anchor at the border of the hole leading into the back of the unit. The plastic anchor would serve to further secure the cord to the unit & to reduce unintended entry of moisture, dust, debris, & so forth. Take further precautions if you intend to solder the power cable to the associated wires, & secure the wires at the connections, isolating each new connection with electrical tape, Plasti-Coat, or the equivalent.

Replace cord in Rowenta Iron


0) Unplug the iron.

1) Remove the (2 or more) screws holding the plastic bottom plate (that the iron stands up on).
The screws are likely to be #20 Torx "Security" screws -- for which you will need a special bit for your nut/screwdriver. A kit of various sizes of Torx security bits will cost you about $10.

2) Remove the plastic cord-holder assembly from the iron.
2a) If the cord-holder is held in place with screws (you are in luck!), simply unscrew them. If you see no screws, then it is being held in place by several (probably 4) plastic tabs that you must simultaneously release. This makes the job much more fiddly. Use a small/medium blade screwdriver to carefully bend and hold each of the plastic tabs out of the way of the latches. You'll need one screwdriver per tab/latch! Take care not to break the tabs...
2b) Carefully wiggle/pull/work the cord-holder assembly out of the iron taking care not to bend the pins of the integral plug (inside the iron) that are seated in the cord-holder socket. Basically, with the iron resting on its metal surface, pull/pry/wiggle the cord-holder straight upward until the cord-holder (socket) pulls free of the (3 or more) stiff wires that function as a "plug".

3) Note that there are 2 crimp-on connectors attaching the 2 wires of the cord to the rest of the wires in the iron. Take a photo of the wires and jot down notes of which wires are connected together. NOTE: One of the cord wires is "neutral" and is attached to the wider spade at the plug end of the cord. Typically the "neutral" wire is marked with a white stripe or ridge down length of the cord. Don't mix up the "neutral" wire and the "hot" wire when you re-connect them in a later step!

4) Cut off the crimp-on connectors and separate all the wires.

5) Remove the cord from the system of zig-zagging "strain-relief" notches that hold the cord securely in place. You may have to remove a small plastic clip first.

6) Cut off 6 inches of the cord. (Or supply a new cord, if the cord has been shortened too much in previous repairs.) This eliminates the broken section wire within the cord. You may use an ohm meter to verify that both wires have a low resistance again (less than 1 ohm).

7) Route the cord back into the "strain-relief" notches in the cord-holder. Don't forget the plastic clip (if there was one)...

8) Strip all wires, exposing about 3/8" of copper on each.

9) Referring to your notes and photo, re-connect all wires using proper-sized plastic wire-nuts for secure connections.

10) Re-attach the cord-holder to the iron body. Make sure you line up the stiff wire pins with the cord-holder socket. Push the cord-holder into place and secure it (via screws or snap-in-place plastic tabs).

11) Replace the plastic cover, taking care to position the wire-nuts and wires to allow it to drop into place without forcing it. Secure the cover with screws.

12) Plug in the iron and test it out!

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1
Locate the faulty connection along your cord. Plug in your headphones and play sound through them as you jiggle the cord at various points to locate what part of the cord is cutting in and out.
    • 2
Cut the cord using wire cutters an inch or so past where the fault in the cord is. If this is at the connector, cut the entire connector piece off. If it is near the headphones, cut off enough to eliminate the faulty section and still allow the cord to be reconnected.

    • 3
Strip the end of the cut cord. There are three wires in the cord: the left channel, the right channel and the ground. The left and right normally are colored, and the ground is bare.
    • 4
To repair a poor connection where the cord meets the headphones, match the wires with the correct leads coming from the earpieces and twist them together. Wrap the wires with electrical tape.
    • 5
To repair a bad connection at the connector jack, acquire a new 1/8-inch connector and attach the cord's inner wires to the appropriate points on the connector. Connect the left channel wire to the tip, the right channel wire to the ring, and the ground wire to the sleeve. Solder all the wires in place.
    • 6
Connect the headphones to a sound source and test for proper function. Jiggle the cord at the new connection to make sure it is secure and does not cut in and out.

Dome camra wire connection with bnc


Preparation
Before installing your RCA camera scout the area and confirm that you will be able to run the cable from your surveillance digital video recorder (SDVR) to your camera. You may want to use RG59 Siamese cable, which is a single cable system with three wires: a coaxial cable for the video and a positive and negative wire to provide power to the camera. If you are installing your camera outside, place it at least 10 feet high to minimize tampering, or put your camera in a dome or other protective housing.
Coax Cable

BNC connector
If you use Siamese cable to wire your RCA camera, you will run the cable first, and then install a BNC (bayonet Neill-Concelman--named for the inventors) connector on each end of the cable. BNC connectors vary by manufacture; install the BNC connectors according to the connector instructions. To get a general overview of the process, see the Resources section for a video on installing BNC connectors.
Power Wires
Plug with standard lamp-type cord

Plug with standard lamp-type cord
Your camera came with a power supply with an integrated power wire; the power supply plugs into a standard wall outlet and the other end plugs into your camera. The cord is probably not long enough, in which case you will have to cut it and splice the Siamese in the middle to deliver power to your camera. The power supply wire is designed like a standard lamp cord and must be cut in half and split. One of the wires will be marked with a stripe, a series of dashes, a rib on the insulator or some other marking (just like a lamp cord). The marking indicates that this is the positive wire. After cutting the supply cord, connect the portion with the camera plug on it to the Siamese cable at your camera and then connect the power supply portion to the other end of the Siamese cable near your SDVR. The positive (marked) power supply wire should be connected to the red Siamese wire and the other wire connected to the black Siamese wire. While many people use wire nuts to connect the wires, connecting the wires with a wire beanie (see Resources) will provide a higher quality installation.
Plug-and-Play
Plug-and-play cables make it easier for homeowners to install their cameras. These cables incorporate all three wires into one cable system and come with connectors preinstalled so that you will not have to install connectors or cut wires. This is slightly more costly than assembling your own cable, but it will save you time and you will not have to purchase special tools to install the connectors. Run your plug-and-play cable and connect it by following the instructions which come with your cable. See the Resources section for a video on installing plug-and-play cables.

E series was working came unpluged while running, pulgged it back in and now it wont come on. Why?


Hello,

This could be several things. Any time a vacuum cleaner doesn't start, it can either be caused by a bad cord, the plug on the end of the cord, the switch, or the motor on the vacuum.

Judging by what you said in your repair question that you were using the vacuum and it was working fine, and only when the vacuum came unplugged it stopped working. This definitely sounds like your plug probably went bad. When the vacuum is plugged into the wall, and the cord is pulled tight, this can caused too much tension to be placed on the actual plug that's in the wall. We see this quite frequently, especially from people that pull on the vacuum cord from across the room to unplug it. When the plug has too much stress on it, it will cause the prongs to either bend, or loose their connection on the inside of the plug, preventing the vacuum from getting electricity.

An easy way to test the plug without tearing down the entire vacuum is to just wiggle the prongs at the end of the cord. Are the prongs loose at all? If the prongs are loose, this is a sure sign that your plug has gone bad. If the prongs are tight, then it still may be the plug itself, or possibly the entire cord assembly. Again, because you stated the vacuum was working fine until it became unplugged, I tend to think that the plug is probably bad.

Since the plug is the easiest thing to fix, I would recommend trying to replace the plug first. If this doesn't fix it, it can only be the whole cord assembly (which you'll have a new plug anyways), the switch, or the motor.

This is step by step instructions on how to replace the plug on a vacuum. This was a repair that I helped with on a vacuum that had a three wire cord, but putting a two wire plug on will be the same repair minus the ground wire. Honestly, I use a three wire plug with all of the plugs that I repair, regardless of whether or not the vacuum has two or three wires. Typically the three wire plugs are better quality, and hold the wires better. It won't hurt the vacuum or your outlet if you don't have a wire connected to the third prong. You can pick up an electrical plug at any hardware store, or Home Depot.

Here's how to change the plug:

Step 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Then cut the existing plug off of your Rainbow, at the very end of the cord, right before the plug molding starts:

77aa24c.jpg

Step 2. There are typically three screws that hold the plug part into the base of the plug assembly, remove these screws to separate the two parts of the plug:

2aea1f0.jpg

moz-screenshot-3.png
Step 3. Slide the cord of your rainbow through the bottom part of the plug so the cord sits about 5-6 inches past the opening of the bottom part of the plug:

456ea85.jpg
moz-screenshot-2.png

Step 4. Carefully cut the outer cord jacket off, about one inch from the end of the cord with a sharp knife. Make sure that you don't cut into the actual wires below, and that you're only cutting the outer part of the cord. If you accidentally cut into the wires, just cut the cord again and start over. This is how you can remove the cord jacket:

104dc11.jpg

Step 5. After removing the cord jacket from the cord, cut the paper filling material off, so you have just the two wires (make sure that there is no copper showing through the wires) are the only thing sticking out. Make sure that you have cut enough cord jacket so the wires have enough room to fit into their respective terminals:

b883012.jpg

Step 6. Use a pair of wire strippers to strip the insulation off of the wires. Strip the wire insulation about about 1/2 inch down both wires.

Step 7. It's best if you twist the copper wires to keep them from fraying.

bcb847b.jpg

Step 8. When using a heavier duty plug like the 3 wire plug shown in this repair, the wire actually uses a clamping device to hold down the wire. Cheaper 2 wire plugs just wrap the wire around a screw, in my opinion the heavier duty three wire cords are much safer, and better:

7f3659b.jpg

Step 9. Put the White wire into the clamp that has the silver screw, and the black wire into the clamp with the gold screw, and tighten down the screws that hold the wires into place:

617f458.jpg

Step 10. Tug firmly on both wires to make sure both are securely fastened inside the terminals. If a wire comes loose, loosen the terminal, put the wire back inside, and then tighten down securely.

5332500.jpg

Step 11. Usually the 3 screws that secure the top of the plug to the bottom part, are aligned with two screws on the top, and one screw on the bottom. Try and line up the screws with the female receptacles on the bottom part of the plug. There may also be a notch on one (and only one) of the terminals, and similar notch on the bottom part of the plug to help you align the two parts correctly:

ab4f7e2.jpg

Step 12. After aligning the screws on the top part of the plug to the bottom part, tighten each screw until snug, then go back and tighten down completely only after each screw is snug. Screw all three screws until they no longer turn:

642e759.jpg

Step 13. The last step is tighten the lower part of the plug assembly down on top of the cord. This helps relieve stress on the end of the wire that is connected to the plug prongs, just in case the cord is pulled on, this will prevent the cord from pulling out of the top part of the plug assembly. Make sure that you tighten both screws on the lower portion of the plug as tight as absolutely possible:

484d1fd.jpg

And you're done! This is how the completed plug should look when you're finished:

820297f.jpg

Now just plug the vacuum cleaner into a wall outlet, and see if the vacuum turns on. Hopefully it does, and this fixed your problem. If it didn't, then this means that it can only be the cord itself, the switch (in 10 years I've never replaced a Rainbow E or E2 switch), or the motor. I'm fairly confident from what you explained in your repair question that this will fix your problem. If it doesn't however, please just use the Clarification Request form here on Fixya, and just leave a comment explaining that it didn't fix the problem. I will then follow up on how you can test the motor, the cord, and the switch on your Rainbow.

I hope this actually fixed it however. If this was helpful to you in figuring out what happened to your Rainbow, please be kind and rate my repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons on the repair page. This little gesture really and truly does keep me coming back to Fixya and helping people solve their vacuum problems. I really do appreciate it, and I look forward to helping you further diagnosis your Rainbow should you need it.

Thanks again,

Chris J.
