LG 55LM6700 power cord

by BBuck67 / April 4, 2017 1:45 PM PDT

I had to disconnect my power cord for my LG 55LM6700 to route it through a wall. Unfortunately it's a non standard cable with three wires that connect to a circuit board connector. I removed the connector without remembering what the order of the wires were. I don't want to plug it back in and fry the TV without knowing if I got the wires in the right slots. Here's a pic of how I reconnected it. does anyone know if this is right?

I found some images of people working on similar sets and it works. From left to right it goes black, green, white as shown in this image:

Notice the ground symbol in that picture.

That's green wire as expected. And the black is going to the pin closest to the electrical danger symbol.

Seems there were clues that along with what looks to be a fuse on the left told us what went where.

You need a service manual or luck.

Anyhow the Green wire should be frame ground so you can Ohm that out. Remember I take it you are an electrical/electronics tech or have one on call so I'll pause here and hope you can sniff out the other two.

So the frame ground should be green.
https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100221070633AAuhuWs and other web content gives us a clue that black would be the hot side and I'd see if the Ohm meter takes me to the fuse in the set.

Sorry that I can't answer you directly but there are ways to divine such things.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
