A power cord is a power cord. They are not brand specific. They follow a type and standard on each end.
For expediency, can you provide the make/model number of your TV? A replacement power cord should be around $5......... if we knew the type of connector on each end (which is probably something I have in my junk cable box in my basement).
I appreciate that but its a three slot plug. I know what the cord looks like, I just can't seem to find any retailers that carry it locally. It seems I can only order it, which seems odd to me considering Samsung is a pretty popular brand, especially in the early goings of flat panel displays. Just seems weird to me.
Considering my son has a 19 inch Samsung in his room and the same cord works for both tv's (tried and proven) I was assuming that Samsung power cords were universal. I also assumed that someone out here would have had to replace one for one reason or another by now and would know the type of connector. I appreciate any help anyone has to offer, thanks.
It also makes things easier if you provide your location(or nearest large city) in your profile, then we know what stores to suggest.
In my city I'd send you to Microcenter, they have tons of cables with ends like that. You may or may not need the right angle end, depending on how close to the wall your TV is. I think what upset calearne was if you had noted the model number in your OP and maybe even location it could have saved 12 posts.....
As others have noted TVs can have several different ends, the one you have is one of the most common but there are others http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntt=right+angle+computer+power+cord&N=
People have been trying to help you but your not providing any useful information.
What a waste of time.
Seriously. Not only that, he's looking for the cord we've been talking about THE ENTIRE TIME! It's a basic power cable dude, not some obscure cable that is exclusive to Samsung. Radioshack, Walmart, Best Buy, etc... You can find one at any of those places. How are you unable to find one locally?
