Cordless is easier to use, but if you use the polisher for a big job the cord models are better for due to continues power supply.

Sounds like Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

The battery charge doesn't light.

Try plugging it into another outlet.
Then try wiggling the cables a little bit.
If it still does not light then the charger may have gone out and needs replacing.

What replacement battery can I get for my simoniz 18vbuf cordless polisher

You can either contact the people that made it and pay an outrageous price, or you can go to a place like batteries plus and buy a replacement that is what I call a re-pop for about half the price of the maker. You'll find a link to them attached

How do I find instructions?

you can try if this is a Black and Decker tool by going to their website at and with the model number you can usually find a breakdown or they also have a service center locator to locate one close to you. If this is another brand give me the model number and area you are in and I will try and find one for you.

How to replace the power cord on my DW849 Buffer

Yes. The ground will be green or yellow-green, the neutral will be white and the hot is black. This is the standard 110-volt wiring scheme. The neutral is either the white wire or the SILVER lug, the hot is either the black wire or the GOLD lug and green is always ground. some power cords have a green and yellow striped wire instead of the solid green. Just be sure to replace each wire with the same color as the one you are removing

Cord wrapped around unit while polishing and shut down. cannot restart

possibly ripped the wires from switch or broke the wires in the cord itself. You can go to for a breakdown on this tool, but would have to guess at the above.
