Re: parts for EWL20S5
By chance does it use the same type of cord as a computer or monitor? These cords can be found at local Radio Shacks, or if you live near a business which has a number of computers, and upgrades machines regularly, they might have extra cords lying around in their closet.
Otherwise, take a pic of the connection on the TV, take it to Radio Shack, and make a match there.
You could look in the TV's documentation- maybe get help there too.

It will be best to buy a new one, rather than trying to repair the damaged power cord. Some times, it might be risky. Power cords are of different types, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops, and wont cost more. Keep the damaged power cord with you as a sample, when you to to buy a new one.
How old is the tv? This is a power supply symptom. You will need to take the back of the tv off and check for puffed capacitors on the power pcb. This is the board where the power cord plugs into. Lay tv face down on a cushioned surface large enough to support the tv frame. You do not want to damage the panel. Then remove the back. If there are puffed capacitors, replace them with equal or slightly higher valued capacitors. The value rating for capacitors are mf and voltage, printed on the capacitors. If they look good, you will need to check the dc voltage output from the pcb usually about three connectors in the same area. One way or another, it is a power supply problem, usually corrected by replacing caps, but if that doesn't work, you will need to replace power pcb
Google bad or blown capacitors image and you will see what you need to look for on the boards primary bad caps are on the power board where the power comes into the computer. inverter board can also be issue but rare.
