I recently picked up a box of old power cords - I bought them for the 4-pin Sony connectors for my reel to reel, but there were a number of others that I can't identify. See the photos. Any help IDing these would be appreciated.

Those look like the cords used on AC/DC black and white televisions. The first round black one I believe is RCA, with that little protrusion that activates a change over switch. The gray one maybe Panasonic or Hitachi, only the two "AC" pins have contacts in the holes. The DC car cords would have the same female end, but use different connections. The last one may also be RCA, they used a similar one on a 9 inch color set.

Thanks for the quick response and great info. I found a 5" RCA tv that uses the round plug. Model AFR-057S. There are probably others as well. I'm still looking for the grey one, though. I wondered if it was from a piece of test equipment, but an AC/DC appliance makes more sense. . . .
