Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. I'm reviewing your details now and will reply shortly.
I need you to double check the model number off of the back of the LG- as the one you posted does not even yield a Google result.
Are you available to check the model number off the back of the set?
Thanks- that one is good. Please allow me a minute to search.
Okay, I know power cords- but this model does not even give a spec relating to the type of connector used. Is there any chance you can post back with a picture of the power inlet jack on the back of the TV (with the power cord removed)? It is one of three type of cords- but I need to see it to tell which of the three.
Remove the power cord so I can see the connector on the TV. Then upload a picture from your PC or laptop using the "Paperclip" icon on the page.
Okay. That power cord is not "meant" to be removed and as such takes a non-standard connection that is proprietary to LG. I've soldered longer cords onto these before, but I also build consumer electronics for a living, so unless you're experienced with that- I would not recommend it. With that type of power cord connection, you would need to use an extension cord in the wall to reach your monster power unit. I would recommend wrapping the junction of the two cords liberally with electrical tape and use zip-ties to secure the tape from unraveling. Other than that, I'm sorry there's not a quick fix for this.
Offhand, initially I assumed you had a consumer detachable power cord which is the IEC socket, figure-8, or clipped figure 8 connection. Yours is a proprietary cord with a PC board type connection that is non-standard.
You're welcome and that is the correct protocol with this type of cord. If you need further assistance let me know. Before you go, PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of your screen (scroll up the page to get to the STARS). That is how I am credited for my efforts by the site.
