If the power cord comes off the television you can replace it with a standard power cord. You have to tell the Radioshack employee how many volts and hertz. That should be on the back of the television. If the power cord does not come off the television you can find someone perhaps a tv repair guy that can attach another power cord to the one on the television. My dad actually did that when his older television would no longer power on. He took the bottom part of a power cord from a fan that was no longer working and attached it to the television's power cord. It has been working like a charm ever since for years.

Lg plasma tv 42PA4500 no picture


1) Make sure it is plugged in
2) check the power cord to make sure it is tight on both ends
3) plug something else into the wall outlet to make sure that it is working properly
3) If the power light comes on than it is not a power problem, check the cords to the cable TV or to the DVD player, or whatever it is you are trying to watch
4) If the power light comes on but the screen is black, use your remote to make sure you are on the correct input channel to watch whatever you have hooked up to the TV. For instance, if you are watching cable, and it is plugged into input 4, you need to make sure that you have input 4 selected or else you will get a black screen.

Help with insignia 24 inch flat screen? the av channel will not show the channel where i can play my ps3?at?


It sounds like yoru PS3 has stopped handshaking with your tv. It can happen. It's possible your brother disrupted the connection by unplugging the PS3 before it was shut down. You can try turning on the PS3 first, and then turning on the tv, or vice versa. If that doesn't work, you may need to invest in a cheap HDMI splitter, to plug the PS3 into, and then send the signal from the splitter to the TV. It has happened to me with a computer with the same hardware, once with an LED tv, and once with my surround sound receiver, completely out of the blue. You can try switching HDMI cables, sources, doing putting the tv into maintenance mode and resetting the software. If none of that works, your only option may be to use an HDMI splitter. I did extensive research and read numerous reviews before I settled on this model, due to many recommendations:
ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P & 3D ' Model: VHD-1X2MN3D
It's available on Amazon here:
Amazon com ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P 3D Model...
Just in case your HDMI cable was damaged when your brother unplugged it, go ahead and get yourself a decent HDMI cable. The Amazon HDMI cables work just fine.

Hi behind my new lcd where the power cable is the plastic as melted was shold i do?


LG TVs seem to have a problem with easily loose power cords. A loose cord probably led to an electrical arc, which is probably why you have melted plastic. Plug in the cord tightly into the TV and see if it'll turn on. If if works properly, you can use it as is; just find a way to make sure that the plug doesn't have any strain. What we did was tie the cord to the back of the TV about a foot away from plug; this way, when the power cord gets pulled, when force is resisted by the tie and not the plug itself. If there is significant damage to the cord, you'll want to remove the screws on the back, take out the back cover and replace the whatever damaged parts you find.

I am unsure on how to hook my Direct TV up to my TM. do i have to have another box for it or can i use an existing box of a nearby TV?


Just use a T-splitter and send the 2nd cable over to the machine. Whatever show is on the main TV will show up on the little screen

How do you hook up an additional set of speakers to this monitor so that I have four speakers working?


You'd need to get a 3.5mm stereo audio jack splitter (aka "headphone jack splitter").
It'll look something like the pictures below.
You should be able to purchase one for a few dollars pretty much anywhere you buy electronics or audio equipment (Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc.).

Once you have that, make sure both your computer and your monitor are turned off.
-Then, unplug the audio cord (that goes from your monitor to your computer) from your computer (you can leave it plugged into the monitor).
-Plug the splitter into your computer where the cord was previously plugged in.
-Next, plug the cord into one of the open jacks on the splitter.
-Plug the audio cable for your *second* set of speakers into the other jack on the splitter.

You should be able to turn on all the devices and have audio coming from all the speakers now.

The screen gets black in some minutes of working, the sound continues


My LG LCD HD TV was doing the same thing. I would turn it on and within about 10 minutes the screen would go black.

After much research and troubleshooting I ended up having to send it out for servicing.

Before you do that, try these steps
  1. Is your TV plugged in to a power strip, splitter, UPS or other power sharing device? If so, plug it directly in to a wall outlet. If the TV is getting low power it can cause issues
  2. Does your TV have other video sources plugged in to it? (Example, Digital Cable, DVD Player,XBox 360) If so, try a different source and see if the problem still happens. If the problem does away, it could be the source. If the problem still happens then its still a problem :-)
Hope this helps!

Telephone line connection


Two options:

1) Pick up a phone line splitter (Radio Shack or just about any other retailer has them) that has a plug on one side and two jacks on the other. Plug this into the phone jack where the line to your computer is connected. Plug the cord to the computer back into one jack on the splitter and plug the line to the fax machine into the other jack. (If it will physically fit into the space on the back of the computer, you can just plug the splitter into the modem connector, plug the line cord into one jack and the fax cord into the other.)

2) (Useful if the phone jack is behind furniture or just hard to get at.) Get a phone line splitter with all jacks (two on one side, on on the other). Unplug the line cord from the computer and plug it into the single jack on one side of the splitter. Then run a new line cord from one of the two jacks on the other side back to your computer. Plug the cord to the fax machine into the other jack.

ProScan wont turn on


PS52690 52" projection TV (CTC188 series) that won't power up. From what I have read here and other places, the most common cause of this is the HV splitter. Actually, when the unit was 3 years old, the HV splitter went out and had to be replaced but it was under warranty at the time. I have found that the part I need is 205064 and runs around $40-$70
A post in another thread said that you could test to see if the HV splitter is really the problem by disconnecting the HV anode (big red wire) from the flyback (not the splitter since that will arc), plug the TV in, power it up, and if the power stays on and you hear sound, replace the HV splitter to fix the problem.
