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,

Screen is blurred with horizontal lines when 1st turned on. Goes away after 15 mins. Also black cloud appears on screen....moves around then disappears after a few mins. What is going bad?

The fault should be with its supply voltage to video output section circuit. Check this voltage. Check the smoothing capacitor used there. The video output card stage, can be located at the back [neck] of the picture tube, will directly plugged on to it; and can be pulled back out gently. Take care. Check this link for more details.

Red light goes on and off

Needs the button put back into place. Look under the cabinet to see if there is an access panel below the switch, would go for all external controls. There would be a chassis with all the controls mounted to it.
Pull the plug before doing any repairs.
Look to see what it would look like in it's normal position. Something has moved out of place that holds the switch to the panel. Very tedious if you have to remove the whole housing.

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 plug to the tv broke off!

One way would be to go to a store that sells electrical parts and buy a replacement plug and install it.
The other would be to replace the whole cord, much more time consuming and probably a bit more expensive. I'd just go and buy a new plug.

No power in my toshiba

It's likely that it has pulled inside the TV. If you are confident enough, check inside. (WITH POWER DISCONNECTED), if not take to a service centre.
