The part of the ribbon cable that goes to the color wheel itself is soldered, but the other end of it connects to the DMD board. You will insert the connector shiny side towards the front of the TV. If it is incorrect the set wont work and at that point just reverse it as it will not harm the TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

Unless the wires were equipped with specific connectors, ordinary speaker wire will do.

You may need to clip off more wire--try to pull on the copper wires one at a time. If one is broken back inside the wire insulation, that wire will pull out of the insulation fairly easily. Cut both back and re-strip the insulation as before. The silver ends are just rosin-core solder applied to the wire strands to prevent fraying when tightening the screws. Light appliance cords sometimes have fabric strands woven in with the copper to increase flexibility of the cord. If that is the case here, then the bare wire ends should be wrapped with a copper strand and then soldered to hold everything together. Try to find a friend that has a soldering gun or a regular stick soldering iron if you don't have such. Hope this helps!

Cooper Industries Cooper Wiring 274W Switch and Outlet I need help installing this switch/outlet combo...I have 3 wires...a black, a red, & a copper. I hooked the copper to the green terminal, the...

You are replacing single pole light switch?
Single pole switch has 3 wires: black and red and bare copper

New device has 4 different colored screws: green, dark, brass, silver
Bare copper goes to green screw.
Black wire goes to dark screw
Red wire to brass screw
Nothing on silver screw for a moment. Test circuit and make sure light turns on-off.
If lights works, then good so far.

Now let look at silver screw. Neutral wire has to connect to silver screw.
In back of your electrical box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These are neutral wires.
You must connect another short piece of insulated wire to these neutral wires and run that wire to silver screw.
The neutral wire will complete circuit to receptacle.
If you do not have neutral wire, then receptacle will not work in that box without additional wiring.

Hook up neutral wire to silver screw.
Now turn on power and click switch again.
If circuit breaker trips, then reverse your red and black wires.
Otherwise this should be correct wiring.

Wiring instructions for a two switch

If I understand correctly, you have a dual switch with one switch stacked above the other.

If this is not correct, add a comment and I will help further.

On each side of the switch are screws with different colors.
The brass screws show in photo above.
Sometimes these screws are dark-colored.
The brass screws are connected by a brass plate so both screws are the same thing.
Your black hot wire from breaker goes to the brass screws.

On the other side of the switch are two independent silver-colored screws.
If the screws on other side of switch are dark-colored, then the screws on opposite side are brass and not silver colored.
Your black wires going to Load (fan, light, motor) go to each of these screws.

Each switch receives the same power source through the brass-colored screws on one side of switch, but on the other side of the switch, each wire is independent as each switch controls a different Load.

Lamp Light still on after replacement

First, A common mistake made is when you insert the orange ribbon cable from the Color Wheel into the DMD bd. To correctly insert the Ribbon Cable you need to look at both sides. You will see a shiny silver side and a dull black/orange side. You must insert the shiny silver side AWAY from the Color Wheel or towards the rear of the set. Now for the Ballast. When you power up the tv,Do you hear a short Buzzing sound? If you do that means that the Ballast is trying to fire up the Lamp and is working. Next, do you hear the Color Wheel spin up? If you do not then you have installed the Color Wheel incorrectly and you need to repeat the installation while making sure that you hold the rubber gasket in perfect place or else it won,t work. Chances are the gasket is in the wrong position and is binding the Glass Wheel. The Ballast is on the right side of the engine and on top of the Lamp Housing. You will see two RED High Voltage wires coming out of one end. Don't worry, there is no stored voltage in the ballast so you won't get a shock providing you have unplugged the tv from the outlet. That is the first step before you change any parts any way. Listen for the correct start sequence. With the rear backing off and the Safety Interlock Switch is being held in the up position, turn on the set. First sound you hear is a clicking which is the power on relay engageing. Then you will hear the fans turn on and then the Color Wheel spin up. Once the Color Wheel spins up and comes to full RPM then the Exciter on the Ballast will Buzz for less than half a second and then the Lamp should light up. Now if you have installed the correct Lamp and correctly installed the Color Wheel and you either are holding up the Interlock Switch or have reinstalled the rear cover and tightened all of the screws you should have a working tv.
