While you can try to fix the fraying charger cord with heatshrink tubing available at a local electronics store, the best option is to replace the charging cable, because once the cord frays, the integrity and quality of charge is negatively effected and could damage your iPod with prolonged use.

My charger is indicating problem power line.i have checked power supply and is good .what could be my problem ?DeWalt cordless saw 28 v DC9000 charger.

There's a high possibility that your cord could be frayed or damaged in any way I'm sure it's not some sort of offset problem that just says there's something wrong when there's nothing there so I would recheck my line and I would definitely check for insulation of my voltage

I have a 6 year old Kindle 3G and the cord is frayed. I know that newer models are easier to read (more light) but can I transfer everything on my old one to a new one? Can I just buy a new cord?

I assume you're referring to the USB cord. Certainly you can buy a new cord at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. I have multiple cords (and chargers) all over the house so I can use my Kindle in any room and keep it charged. Naturally, there's another cord by the computer.

How do i fix a battery on a samsung tablet

The problem may be a frayed wire inside the charger cable right at the connector, or the charger jack may be worn or have a cracked solder connection. If it charges reliably with a different cable (such as a USB cable connected to the computer, it is probably the charger cable. If it has to be wiggled to get it to charge with a known good cable, then the charger jack should be replaced. This requires an expert technician; the solder connections are very small, and the circuitry requires special handling because it is easily damaged by static electricity.

It will not turn on or charge up. we have put it on the charger but nothing works.

typically it can be the cord has been frayed, the port is damaged, or depending on how old it is, it can be the battery. Can't offer much more help without more info.

Kenmore vacume

after turning the switch on, jiggle the electric cord at the vac end, not the plug end.
Anything happen?
Most of the time the cord gets frayed from repeated bending. To fix, you just unplug the vac, cut the cord behind the frayed place, and reconnect it to the switch after removing the housing.

Wire frayed at jack, can this be fixed?

This same thing happened to my charger, and I couldn't fix it. All I could do was find a solution.
Thankfully, Amazon sells this:

It's good and inexpensive, Amazon will have it listed for $1.25 one day and $9.25 another day, so if you can keep an eye on it for a couple days.
The problems with it: It doesn't have an indicator light, and the cord can come out of the power box a lot easier than I'd like it to.
It's not a fix, but it's a cheaper solution to buying another big charger from Apple.f (And I wouldn't recommend buying a second-hand one, I had to return two of' em. They say they're new, but they're clearly not.)
