Do you mean the cord from wall to transformer or the cord from transformer to laptop. If its the wall one just get a new cord which is easy enough to get from most pc shops or even right here on trademe and cheaper than a whole new power pack.

If you are electrically savy its not hard at all with a soldering iron and some heat shrink tubing. But if you are not comfortable with doing so get a new power pack.

errr..................a lead is cut........say it's gt a green wire a red wire and a blue wire..........i'd suggest you join the green to the green, the red to the red, and the blue to the blue ?.........what else makes sense ?

used to do this kinda stuff 40 years ago when I was a kid ...........anything broke it was always me who got to fix it.........

drcspy, May 26, 1:16am
probably quite illegal back then what I did (toasters,kettles, you name it got fixed) as it was 240v wiring I wsa playing with...........anyway if your wire is broken between the transformer and the laptop that will be perfectly legal for you to repair as it's NOT 240vAC it's most likely only 19vDC (at most)

Hi thanks for your help I have an electrician in the front shop where I work who are going to look at it and see if they can safely repair it otherwise I will buy a new one.
