Introduction

Is there a tear or cut in your cord? If so, refer to this guide to replace the power cord. This guide will require some soldering experience.

Before beginning, make sure the device is unplugged. With a Phillips head #2 screwdriver, begin unscrewing the four 10mm screws located on the bottom of the power base.
  • Before beginning, make sure the device is unplugged.

    • With a Phillips head #2 screwdriver, begin unscrewing the four 10mm screws located on the bottom of the power base.

It would be better to switch these points around because if someone begins unscrewing the screws and the device is plugged in, who knows what might happen. It's better to put the warning first instead of second.

I would correct the first line to read, "With a Phillips head #2 screwdriver, begin unscrewing the four 10mm screws located on the bottom of the power base."

Once the screws are removed, pull the plastic base up gently.
  • Once the screws are removed, pull the plastic base up gently.

  • Once the plastic base is removed, there is a fan located in the center of the powerbase. Make sure the cord does not get caught or frayed by the fan.

"Once the screws are removed, pull the plastic base up using slight tension as you pull."

I will leave the second line as it is

With the Phillips head #2 screwdriver, remove the two 10mm screws that secure the white bracket. The white safety bracket holds the cord down. After removing it, the cord will be free.

Conclusion

Since this guide replacement requires cutting wires, if you want to reassemble this device, you must first re-solder new wires before following the steps backwards to reassemble the device.
