Default Samsung un60d8000yf - worth diagnosing?

Neighbor's kid got it to fix up and never did. No power cord. Can't tell me what's wrong with it.

I have average troubleshooting (with help) and sdering skills.

Not worth it, right?

I have a power cord for my ancient Samsung HP-T5044 50" Plasma. What are the chances it would work?

About 50/50
LOL, you're on a forum that gives help to people trying to fix their electronics expecting us to come to reenforce the decision you've already made to junk the TV.
