    the red, yellow and white wires that are inside the cord are exposed about an inch long right at the base of the cord where you would plug it into the headphones.  They still work fine, but is there a way to fix this?  Or should I just use some electrical tape?

    Same problem with the K271's.. which I'm guessing uses the same chord. Happened very early on

    I use my boyfriend's and the same thing happened to me. I don't know if I can just buy the chord or if I just buy him a new set.

Guitar center or sam ash can get them for you special order. I got mine from guitar center about a year ago and Im already due for a replacement.. about 20 bucks, you can get them coiled or straight
also I had the same problem with the wire slipping down exposing the inner wires. I would just reach down lower in the cord and slide the outer cover back up...

Try radio shack.

you could also take an 1/8 to 1/8 4' cable which will run about 10 dollars or close to it and cut one end off then splice it back in to your headphones.

Have a mity mite ps 120 a automotive jump starter but no chord to charge it. can i just use any chord or do i need to buy a replacement chord? And if so where can i purchase?


What Cord?

Your asking about plugging it into the homes
electrical outlet ?

Can't use just any cord,not a two prong lamp cord
type extension,no

You use a three prong grounded extension wire

Does it not have several feet of wire on it & a three
prong plug?

You use a standard outdoor extension, like you
would for a vacuum cleaner outside

If you use it a lot, buy a short 6 foot one,just to
use with it

How about the owners manual ?

I bought a creative 5.1 speakers for my destop but i'm not sure the connections going to the destop audio jack.


It depends on the output of the device. Is it the green chord that is stuck into a headphone jack? Since its 5.1 I doubt that. Its most likely an optical output, or a vga chord. In any case you should be able to match the chord you need to the back of your computer. Any more details will help.

Broken pullcord . cord is missing how long should new cord be and how hard is it to replace


Just went through this pain today. Here's how I did it. Use allen wrench with T handle to remove the shroud over the carb controls and plug. Then remove about 10 screws and split the case. Use tool that comes with the unit to remove the nut holding the impeller. Behind the impeller, use torx head to get the other bolts to remove the motor. There are two other screws on the other side that hold the motor on. Drop the motor from the case carefully. It is still attached by wires to the throttle and kill switch. Note how the throttle linkage is connected because it will come apart for sure. On the one side of the housing you are looking at the plastic cord spool with the spring unit behind it. My chord simply pulled out of the spool. It was held on with a 10mm nut and start washer (not a good design). If the chord broke, remove the remnant from the take up spool. To rewind the new chord or replace the one that pulled free, you need to wind the spring to put tension on it. Make sure the take up spool engages with the spring tang otherwise it will turn free and not tense the sprint. Once engaged with the tang, the spool should set to the bottom to be level with the metal chord guide. Turn the spool clockwise 3-4 turns until you feel it tighten. With a 2nd pair of hands, hold the tension on the spool and tread in your chord. Route the chord through the take up reel into the hole on the side. Loosen the 10mm nut with the star washer and route the end of the chord through it. Tie a simple knot in the end to prevent it from pulling through. Tighten the 10mm nut which clamps on the chord. Now, slowly, let the spring tension take up the loose chord until fully retracted. Make sure the metal chord guide fits in the slot to channel the chord properly into the take up reel. Hold the spool down and give the chord a gentle test or two. The chord should retract easily and fully. Simple as pie!!! Reverse the disassembly and you are back in business.

I can only get sound out of one ear. Sometimes, if I move the chord around, I can get sound our of both ears. It comes and goes.


I have had this problem several times. It can be due to a number of things
Firstly, try the MP3 player with a different set of headphones, if both ears work, then the headphones are the problem. Check the adaptor and/or cabling for any damage or defects. If the internal cabling is damaged, you will need to go and buy a new pair.
If the problem is the player itself, try checking the headphone port for dust or any other artefacts blocking the way. This can cause he connection to fail and therefore lose sound.
On a side note, if you love listening to music, i would suggest a high quality set of headphones. Sennheiser (my personal favourites) and Shure are both a VERY good brand to go for. You do pay a bit more, but sound quality and build quality are faultless.

I am missing the power cord for my Phillips R15 DVR and need to purchase a new one. Any suggestions?


Hello
You just buy one power chord which has made up with high quality meterials. That is all. The chord must be capable of handling enough current concumed by your product. A normal type power chord will meet your need. Take a power chord which has plughin compactability of your household plug point. OK.
