A neighbour just gave me a tv she said she doesn't need.
At this point we dont know if it works.
It's a Samsung ue46c8000
No remote or power cable.
I dont know if the cable is missing or it's been cut off.
Funny thing is I cant find a psu port anywhere nor any evidence that it was cut.
Modern TVs this big dont normally have a fixed power cable so I'm assuming it plugs in somewhere.
This sort of thing is hard to google so I'm left scratching my head.

i actually have one of these TVs, LOL look at the specs below, pay attention to the Sockets one, it tells you every port on it. They are on the side in back. Should have 2 usb, but the power cord is different. this is a fantastic tv i paid 1200 bucks for back when it was brand new on the market. Super thin and ultra high performance for gaming, movies, whatever, we love it.

The previous post with the picture shows where it is but on my tv it has a funny port there definitely not a standard power port. Unless someone took the power port.

The person that gave you the TV does not know what happened to the power cord?
No, its my neighbour and she's an old lady. Her son moved back in with her for a while and left recently so she's given me his old tv. She said that he said he 'cut' the power cable off. God knows why, she doesnt have a clue and they dint speak anymore so, I'm left with the tv. I'm still trying to figure out how to share a picture here. What is the latest site people use?

He may very well have done exactly that, I mean there are only so many places you can see on the TV where a power cord may have been. If it's not a video/audio/usb port, should be where the power cord was.
