Replacing Power Cord on Onkyo Receiver

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have scoured the net and these boards to no avail.

The power cord on my SR-304 receiver was chewed through by our rabbit. I need to replace it, but have not been able to find a suitable replacement anywhere, as one end plugs directly onto the board in the receiver using a unique connector. (I understand I'm using non-technical jargon here...I don't know how to describe it). Picture attached.



Does anybody know where to find this type of power cord, or at least the connector on the end? Radio Shack had a cord with bare wire ends, but I cannot find the connector to plug into the board on the receiver.

Any help is hugely appreciated.

Thanks!!

It looks like the connector is fine, so why not just splice it onto the new power cord? Otherwise, you're most likely going to have to contact Onkyo for a replacement.

By the way, rabbit goes nicely with potatoes and grits. Kill da wabbit! Kill da wabbit!

Well, it's more involved than that. You also need to properly crimp the terminals on the ends of the wire. Doing it incorrectly can damage the pins, housing, or worse cause a fire. I suggest you take it to a repair shop that can do this. Or just remove the mating connector pins from the PCB and solder the wires direct.
