    Is it the Xbox 360 power cable (Power brick piece of connector piece), or is it the Audio/Video Cord? I know how to get both of these.

How do I reboot aCuisinart BKR-400C breadmaker?

sounds like you may have a broken wire in the cord. cut the end of the cord approx 4 inches from the "plug end" strip the wire and plug the bare wires back into the outlet and see if your unit works, if it does the plug end has a broken wire, if it doesnt then the unit is bad.

Connecting jumper for start up

That would be connecting a jumper wire, from the Green wire to ANY Black wire, in the 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

If this problem is in direct relation to a Dell E210882 motherboard, it uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

Example of a 24-pin power cable, and it's respective connector,

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)
ANY Black wire is Ground wire.

With the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and the power supply,(Computer), plugged into power, the jumper wire is inserted into the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Looking at the photo to the far right in the link, shows the ATX main power cable plugged in.
Where the wires go into the connector is the BACK of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.
The other end goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire in it.

The end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable connector, has a metal terminal end.
This metal terminal end is pretty far down into the connector, from the backside of the connector.
For this reason the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch the metal terminal end.

The most widely used jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. Black plastic electrical tape is applied to the center of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers.

(One wrap of black plastic electrical tape will insulate you from 600 Volts DC)

The 'legs' of the U-shaped paper clip then go down into the socket holes.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
The voltage is VERY low, but there may be a small spark.
Warning you in advance.

Power supply comes on?
You have a bad Power On switch.

Power supply does Not come on?
You have a bad Power Supply.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.

On the right side of me JBL headphone doesnt work pulled the cord by accident

You must have broken the cable somewhere. If you move it around you might get it to come on, try it all over to determine where the break is. If very close to the headshell you might want to consider a new cable. If in the middle you can cutt it off before the break and fit a new plug. Then get an extension cable to complete the length.
If at the plug end follow what follows:
Cutt the old ******** and buy a new plug. Cutt it off 10cm before the plug end if the break is the plug section. Most hadphones are fitted with a 3.5mm jack. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

My computer light turns on then off, no fan no screen

Changed the power supply and Power On switch?
New parts? Okay. We'll come back to them. For now, lets look over some simple things.

I can tell you that even after 20+ years as a tech, I still get a little zealous, when it comes to building computers. Sometimes we get into a rush, and overlook the simple things.
1.Are you sure the 20/24-pin motherboard power cable, is in tight, and down in there?

2.Are you sure the Front Panel connector, is connected right on the motherboard? Some Front Panel's have individual wires with terminal ends, that go on separate pins on the motherboard Front Panel header.
I'm asking are you sure the Power On switch is connected to the right pins, on the motherboard Front Panel header.

Everything good so far? Okay, lets look at the motherboard.
Look at the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. Specifically the ones that surround the processor. See if they show obvious signs of being bad.
Here is a link that will show you what Electrolytic Capacitors look like, and the visual signs of failure of them,

Good so far? Okay, lets check out that power supply, and at the same time, check out the Power On switch. Even if these items are brand new, they can still be bad.

I need you to make a jumper wire. This is to jump the Soft Power On, part of the power supply.
Wire needs to be like the power supply connector wires. That thick. It needs to have insulation on it. Should be 3 inches long, and have about 3/4th's of an inch of insulation, removed from each end.
Twist the ends tight, and into a pointed shape. Bend the wire into a U shape.

The 20/24-pin motherboard power cable, needs to be plugged into the motherboard. Where the wires go into the connector, there are socket holes. For every wire going down in there, there is a metal terminal end, on the end of each wire. The metal terminal end is pretty far down in there. Your jumper wire must go down in the socket hole, with the wire that is in the socket hole now.

You will see a Green wire, and a bunch of Black wires. The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire.
ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.
You want to jump across the Green wire, to ANY Black wire. (You can use the Black wire that is next to the Green wire. Just wanted you to know that you could use ANY Black wire you see)

Computer plugged into power. You may want to wear a glove on the hand that plugs the jumper wire in. The reason is that there will be a spark.
Not a big one, but I want you to feel safe.
Just stick one end of the jumper wire, down in the Green wire socket hole. Make sure it's deep enough to touch that metal terminal end. Now since the jumper wire is a U shape, just stick the other end in the Black wire socket hole.

You only want to touch it momentarily. Around 1 to 2 seconds. Then remove it.

If the power supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch, or bad Front Panel header on the motherboard. If the power supply doesn't come on, you have a bad power supply.

With the power supply running, you can see if your motherboard is bad or not. I have seen VERY FEW motherboards, that have a bad Front Panel header. (Header is a -> Connector <- when referring to the motherboard)

The blender coupling on my oster snapped in half. I have the replacement part already I just cannot figure out how to get the broken coupling off the base of the motor. I also got a replacement square...

10-01-2009 Sara - see solution for rlaymon 1-9-08 "Top part of base broke off" by TanyaCS on 1-20-08 - good ideas. I just fixed mine - 2 hour job + half hour to put a new cord in. Like TanyaCS my broken coupling was rusted to shaft - used WD-40 twice and let sit - meanwhile took out motor and removed fan - kept screws and washers in order on workbench (kitchen counter) - the fan hole is "D" shaped - fan end of shaft also "D" shaped - I filed a "flat" on the other side of the factory "flat" (side of 'D' that is straight) - Used big pliers on broken coupling and adjustable wrench on on the "flats" on fan end of the shaft. Broken end came right off. New cord is 18 gauge extension cord capable of at least 6 amps. Cut off the un-needed end. Or order a replacement cord $4 when you order the rubber drive coupling $4, pin with slinger washer $3. Bet you also need new rubber feet - didn't buy for mine - wish I had. Bert

I replaced heater and thermostat and I'm trying to assemble....

There should be an open plug in for it where you removed the old one from. The flag you referred to on the end is a male spade connector. You should find it is a female end on a white wire.
