Hello pulled plug,

Having worked as a Bio-Med Tech I've seen many a pulled (yanked out with force) power cord on many a piece of medical equipment.

It would help to know what make & model # your TV set is so I can determine if the power cord "though-put" - at the TV set back cover itself - is hardwire soldered to the main circuit board, or if it has a separate screw "removable" plate assy.

The older sets or the latter means that you may have damaged that small ~ (3" x 6") plastic panel as well, beings there are usually 2 screws that hold it in place.

Note - Some older sets are this way, and most newer sets incorporate a different design altogether.

That through-put plate may also mount the Coaxial cable connect input, and may also have an AGC port to adjust that related pot control that is mounted on the (mobo) or motherboard. Older sets had this common design.

Newer sets have many more A-V inputs and connections due to the newer TV formats and newer technology changes.

Also that small power cord through-plate design may be one of 2 designs as well. Some older sets incorporated a quick-disconnect 2-pin AC power cord disconnect design from the (mobo) inside or behind that through-plate, while others had that 2 screw removable plate that had to be undone first, and then have the power cord passed through the back cover just to work on the TV board components as in a repair.

Which does yours have, or how old is your TV set?

Can you repair the ripped out power cord yourself?

If not you will have to have a qualified TV repair person re-solder the AC line cord connections back onto the (mobo) - unless the main (mobo) was damaged as well?

Let me know?

Best regards,

Only connection to the TV is the power cord and cable wire. I moved the TV and plugged it back sound !! Checked cable connection and electrical plug in.

Depending on the type of TV that it is, check your "menu" go to "audio" and look for "speakers" on/off or internal/external. if you still have an issue, post a reply with the make and model of the TV and I can pull the manual. Hope this helps.

Hi troymass this Mike Houston of DISH Network. The one thing we want to do is a hard reset by pulling out the receiver power cord for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. the receiver will power back on its own and reacquire to get the strongest signal. If the problem still persists you can run a check switch test MENU-6-1-1 and select Check Switch and then TEST. Once test is completed exit out of all menus.

Red light green light on off all time tv will not turn on

ok if you have just replaced the bulb, first try taking out the bulb unit and putting it back in, if you have already tried this, then disconnect everything from the TV unplug it find a nice sturdy place where you can place the tv, at the back of the tv remove the lower back panel ONLY, the screws you need to remove will have an arrow pointing to them, once removed clean all built up dust, remove cooling fan and clean from dust , check it spins ok, remove silver plate in the middle and remove any built up dust, just to the right of the fan there is a sensor unsrew and remove check it is free from dust, on the left of the fan is a micro switch unplug but do not pull on wires to the far right you will see a retainer bar upright (silver) remove this, gentley pull all the circuit board assembly back it will not come out far, on the back circuit board unplug the top two plugs top left but DO NOT pull on wires pull the circuitry board forward just a fraction more, and behind it is yet another multi plug, pull out the one to the left and plug back in but clear any dust in mean time, gently put everything back and plug all that you have unpluged back in gently, put all bars and covers back on, and re-install equip to tv........ this is what i did to mine when i had this probem today after bulb replacement and it now works fine

The tv is plugged in but the power isn't cutting on.. I used to cut it on with my old cable remote but now I moved.. and do not have it anymore. I tried to do it manually but it isnt working. Thanks

VCR/DVD prongs broken off in TV

unplug the tv then try to drill a real small hole in the broken off part of the cable that is inthe tv, then take a sharp pointed screw and try to thread it into the hole that you drilled if able to get it started then pull out on the screw to see if it will come out. If not able to do it this way you will have to take the back off and some of and see if you can push the broken part out from the inside. Be sure to unplug your tv from (AC) so you dont get hurt. If that dont work then u probley willhave to take to a shop to get fixed.

The electricy plug and cord

If The Unit Is Under Warranty There Is A Good Chance You Will Void The Warranty. But If The Unit Isn't Under Warranty I'd Go Ahead And Pull The Real Of The Tv And Repair The Power Cord Just Make Sure Everything Is As It Should Be Before You Put The Tv Back Together And Make Sure There Are No Exposed Wires Anywhere.

Samsung hl-r4667w needs power cord reset to turn on

How much was it moved? It could have jiggled something loose or made an intermittent connection, try removing the bulb/lamp and put it back in to reseat it, it might be detecting a lamp issue due to a bad connection, or a lamp thats starting to fail, if you have a spare lamp you can try replacing it. If thats not it then it may just be something is failing due to age/heat in the tv and moving it caused enough shock to the part to go intermittent. Most commonly when a projection tv does this its a problem with the lamp, or the power supply board.
