This is an area a technician should repair,faults in other areas of your computer may occur if not carried out correctly,
Warrantees are definately void if you attempt this type of repair and kill your motherboard (costly replacements)without prior experience I would give it to the technicians,
Solder is solder but comon sense must also prevail first.
Technician repair $100nzd replace mother board $400nzd(approx)check out some prices yourself,you may be pleasantly supprised.
I am an Electrician and have serviced many laptops over the years,,

Your question which one is the data line?
None of them are data lines at all,they are power not data.

>>>>Power Kills,Instantly,Anyone & Without prejudice,
>>>>Please Be Extremely careful.

the colour codes you explain describe the voltage supply colours which are governed by standards worldwide,different colours for different countries.

In New Zealand the wiring codes for these colours are specific,Brown = Live , Blue = Neautral , Bare = Ground/Earth

Tools required,
Multimeter,Small screw driver, solder iron,solder

Assuming you dismantled this unit,
the same process of connection will apply but in reverse ,
put the connections back the way you found them,
just taking extra special care not to short any connections thru excess solder,testing should be with a multimeter,
condinuity first then voltage,
output voltage of the charger is printed on base or body
you can check output before connection to jack and input of new soldered part for consistancy of circuitry,
Leave on charge if alls well and enjoy.

I have a kenmore dishwasher with blue and green power wiring,and unknown how to connect it to the black and white wiring plug

You are missing a wire. On the Euro influenced stuff there should be a BROWN, BLUE and GREEN STRIPE.
BROWN goes to BLACK (hot)
BLUE goes to WHITE (neutral)
GREEN STRIPE goes to bare ground.
Here's a website for clarity -

Do you know what the pin layout for the charger (Dell Latitude CPx PA-9) is?

I am replacing the a/c blower motor and capacitor. The old motor has 1 brown wire to the capacitor, 1 yellow wire to the capacitor (the yellow then loops from the capacitor over to the wiring panel), 1...

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

Wiring on a RCA RJ-45 wall jack

the RJ45 wallplate is not meant for ethernet. It's an 8P8C connector for a phone. Will it work as a network jack? Maybe. I wouldn't use it, but if you really want to try, wire it thusly:

1 Blue --- Orange/White
2 Orange --- Orange
3 Black --- Green/White
4 Red --- Blue
5 Green --- Blue/White
6 Yellow --- Green
7 Brown --- Brown/White
8 White --- Brown

I'd still recommend a CAT5 wallplate with a CAT5 jack.

Cat 5 wiring issue

I know this is an old thread, but for the sake of helping someone else in the future, I just got off the phone with the Phillips Help Desk and this is the way they told me to wire it up the RJ-11 & RJ-45 combo jack I bought (PH60037):
  • RJ-45
  • Jack colors - CAT 5e
  • Blue - white/orange
  • Orange - Orange
  • Black - white/green
  • Red - Blue
  • Green - white/blue
  • Yellow - Green
  • Brown - white/brown
  • White - brown

  • RJ-11
  • White - white/green
  • Black - white/orange
  • Red - blue
  • Green - blue/white
  • Yellow - orange
  • Blue - green
He said it was the standard configuration used by the phone companies for some time.
Phillips Help Desk # for phones/PCs (800-233-8412)
Hope that helps someone else down the road.
