Power cord problem

I have had a Y550P for a year and half now, and it is now out of warranty.   The power cord has developed a break in the plastic coating just below where it plugs in to the power "brick" and a wire is exposed.  

I consider this a significant defect and potential fire hazard, but can find no information here on how to get a replacement power cord.  It is obviously a defective cord, for I have not seen any other cord do this before and have seen no mention of this issue on the boards.  

Need some help here!

Thanks.

Re: Power cord problem

if the ac adapter & power cord is defective, it's better to replace it with new one. you can buy it on ebay.

Re: Power cord problem

I looked at your Ebay link and saw several different models listed, all for use with the Y550P.  How do I know which is the proper one for use with my machine?  I looked at my power supply and could not match numbers on it with the items listed on Ebay....
