How do you Rethread a lamp?

Unplug the lamp and remove its shade, harp, and bulb. With the folded blanket or towel beneath it, turn the lamp on its side and peel back or remove any felt covering the base. Turn the lamp right side up and look for a screw at the base of the socket. If there is one, loosen it with the screwdriver.

In respect to this, can you fix a lamp cord?

While it's possible to cut a damaged cord and splice on a replacement, it's usually easier to simply replace the entire cord. It's usually connected to the lamp socket by screws -- all you have to do to get to the connections is separate the socket.

Also, how much does it cost to rewire a lamp? New socket, $30; rewiring lamp with retro cord and plug, $35 to $55; plug only, $20; 10-inch custom shade, $70 and up.

Similarly, can you convert a touch lamp to a regular lamp?

A touch control lamp lets you control the light by touching metal anywhere on the lamp and even turns a regular light bulb into a three-way bulb. You can make any lamp into a touch lamp by wiring a three-way touch control module inside the lamp base.

Can you splice a lamp cord?

Cut the damaged length of lamp cord away, then strip back about a half inch of insulation from those wires too. Here I've slipped the tubing into place over the splice. Twist one wire from the extension cord onto a wire from the lamp, then twist the other. Bend the twist so it's parallel with the insulation.
