A quick fix is to resolder the the wires and then get a glue gun and coat the wires thsi will keep them seperated when you retape the cable. if you **** the wire coating ie the outer black rubber sleeve first then peel this back so you exspose the wires you can use this to cover the repaired wires.

I has a dog chew on my cord.is .I'd like to fix it


If the bare wire is not showing, just wrap with black electric tape. If the bare wire is showing then
1. remove the insulation from the two wires about 1 inch on each side of the cut.
2. Go to a hardware store and get some wire nuts (small), twist the two ends together and screw on the wire nut.
3. Do the same thing to the other wire. Now take black electrical tape and tape each wire nut down the wire about 1/2 inch.
4. Tape both wire nuts together with electrical tape and the wire strands to the insulation and up the insulation about 1 inch.

Fliter queen repair


Hi there,
I generally don't like answering questions like this cause it could lead to unwanted problems. But I will say that if the individual wires are color-coded (each wire is a different color and can easily be determined which go to which) and you are handy with some electrical tape and know about how to make wires connect, then you may be able to do this yourself.

If you are NOT able to determine which wires go to which wire, I definitely do NOT recommend you trying to this yourself.

If it is obvious to you which wires go to which, splice them to clean edges, connect metal to metal, wrap two connecting wires tightly with electrical tape, then once all wires are wrapped to one another, bunch all together and wrap all with electrical tape. That's it.

It's fairly simple, but again, YOU MUST, I STRESS MUST be able to distinguish which wires match which wires from the detached (thanks to dear sweet puppy) wires. :) Bad puppy!

Hope this helps at least some. A good repair person shouldn't charge that much to do it for you.

Best, Jenn

How do i splice the power cord back together


Hi,
You will need to cut away the outer rubber insulation. Be careful not to cut the insulation on the 3 separate wires. Then you will need to remove about three fourths of a inch of insulation from each of the three wires. If you can solder, then solder the black to black, green to green , white to white. Then Tape with electrical tape each wire separately. Do a good job of taping. If you cannot solder, then go to a hardware store a buy # Wire Nuts. Take the loose end of the cord with you so as to get the right size of Wire Nut. The wire Nut repair is bulky , but secure. You are using a lot of Amps with the Steamer so you want a good job, lest the repair gets hot. Either repair I mentioned will work safely and well.
Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!

My dog chewed the cord in half! ?? dog is ok


Yea yea yea ... blame it on the poor dog ...

Is this printer a 110 VAC into the device or is it powered by a transformer?

If by a standard cord, use any computer cord. If by a transformer, there is that possibililty you can repair the broken wire by removing the damaged portion and reconnecting the two ends. Pay attention to the marks on the wire (white mark or ridge or color of the conductor). Make sure the two wires are insulated from each other.

If you are not able to effect this repair yourself, or by a neighbor with a such skills, get yourself to the computer repair shop around the corner from where you live and plea your case. Expect to pay $15.00 for this repair job. If you require a new power supply, please check www.hp.com/support for your model, e-bay or Craigs List.

There are a few emergency ideas for you. If it is really really really critical and you can't find or make the repair ... you can always get a new, economy printer to use until you can get this one going again.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Dog chewed the cord;its the kind that plugs into back of motor. Is there anywhere to get a replacement?


I feel it would be cheaper to replace the fan cord than to the dog.
As this is a DIY site, I would recommend that you repair the cord. Cut both the ends of the cord such that you have about a foot of the cord left with the wall plug and the fan socket. Procure a few meters of a double or triple cord depending what you have in your fan presently. Peel off the insulation on all eight or twelve ends of the wires and join them one by one to the wall plug and the fan socket to both the ends of the newly acquired cord. And insulate each joint with insulation tape individually and then collectively. So you have two joints on the cable if you look at it casually. What you need to procure is:
1. A cord double or triple core depending on the original one in the fan now.
2. A small roll of insulation roll.
3. A dog leash.

My puppy chewed the electric cord! Can i buy a replacement? Model GGR200RDDS


This should be an obvious one. If the cord is attached HARD, meaning you can't remove it, you have to buy a new unit. punish your puppy as you see fit. If the cord is removeable, meaning there is some sort of lock-in plug end to the cord to the cooking unit, OR a magnetic lock, you can most likely buy a new one. just call up the number for sales that should be printed on your owners manual somewhere. And if you tell me its not there, look harder. every company wants a sale. and you know the company name anyway. GEORGE FORMAN GRILL. Also you can splice the cable if its a chew in the middle. it takes some electrical know-how, but if a puppy chews in the middle, a pair of wire nuts and some electrical tape fixes it. talk to people in the know. CONTACT CONTACT CONTACT! :) The world is not at an end due to a fiesty puppy.

Dog chewed cord on bissell model 6579-2 how do I replace it?


You can cut the bad section of wire out of the cord, cut the insulation on the cord to get to the wires. Match your colors, strip the insulation from the individual wires and twist together. Wrap each wire with electrical tape (making sure no wire is exposed, can be a fire hazard), then wrap the cord with electrical tape. The cord will be a little shorter, but should work fine.

Puppy chewed the cord on my Philips shp2500 headphones. Is there any way to repair the cord?


Yep. Same exact thing happened to my HD280's. Damn beagles!

Simply buy replacement cord from Sennheiser. It has a nice .100" pitch header so no soldering is necessary to replace the cord.

The trick is to get the phones apart. I almost destroyed mine before I realized you can take the ear padding off by stretching it from around the plastic earcup. Be careful not to tear the thin fabric on the inside of the pad. I believe you can buy replacements of the pads if you are not so lucky.

There are two screws that hold the phone parts all together. Take these out and you are there. Be sure you watch how all the parts come out because it is a bit of a puzzle to get it all back together. The tiny wire are also very fragile inside the phones so be very gentle.

Putting the pads back on was probably the hardest part. :/

Cheers.

Tdk mp100 headphone jack


Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.

Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing

Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.

Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.

  • You need to plan a way to relieve the pulling stress on the solder joints where the two headphone cords enter your replacement headphone jack.
  • Try shrink tubing if you have it.
  • If you have some thermal shrink tubing, slide a piece over the headphone cord end before stripping the wires.
  • Slide the headphone jack casing over the headphone cord also.
Strip each headphone cord 5/8" using the 18 gage setting of your wire stripper..

Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.

Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.

Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.

Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
  • Plan where you can crimp the headphone cord. Crimp it when ready.
  • The green == left channel wire goes to the tip of the 3.5mm jack.
  • The red==right channel wire goes to the middle of the 3.5 mm jack
  • The copper colored wires go to the ground of the jack..
  • Measure resistance, 31 ohms per earpiece.
  • Screw the jack cover on and finish the strain relief craftsmanship.
