Where can i buy a new power cored for my 47 inch rca projector tv at


the cords are usually fairly generic, large three pin like a computer tower no problem. If a odd shaped one go looking by model number on the internet, the older the set the more generic the cord will be.

plug the ps in with power cable only no hdmi. When turning on Hold down the power button until you hear a second set of beeps you have now reset the video settings. Turn the console off and plug in your hdmi and switch back on it should now work.

Everytime i try to plug the hdmi cord inot the playstation it shoots sparks out and flips my breaker. 2 times, t different hdmi cords...what do i do!? I cant use it..


You might want to try connecting everything unenergised. Shut everything down (turn off buttons on both ps3 and breaker). You may even try unplugging the breaker from the power line. Now connect the HDMI PS3 to TV, audio cables, etc. Energise everything and turn on.

It won't Power On at all, all wires hooked up to it.


try to hold down the power buttin for about 45 seconds, if nothing happens, after ensuring all the cables are properly connected and everything is plugged in, I would suggest taking it back to the store you bought it at so you can exchange it for a new one.

Sony PS3 will not power up -


1. First check the power cable by removing it and then plugging it in again. You may find it is not pushed in far enough.
If that is good then follow these steps
  • The console might not be turned on. Turn on the console using the main power switch on the back of the console.
  • Make sure the AC power cord is securely connected.
  • Visually inspect the AC power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
  • Confirm the wall power outlet is active (receiving power). Try a different power outlet.
  • If possible, test the power cord by connecting it to a different PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If possible, try another AC power cord on your PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PLAYSTATION 3 power supply and the PLAYSTATION 3 may need service.
  • Make sure the vents are not obstructed in anyway.
  • Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the PLAYSTATION 3. There should be at least four (4) inches of clearance between the air vents on the system and any walls, televisions, entertainment centers, etc. Otherwise the unit may not function properly due to what are actually environmental issues.
I hope this helped
cheers

Television will not turn on


My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
