The power cord seems to be attached to the tv. Does this simply pop out of the tv? It seems to be surrounded by a small oblong panel.

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.

I'm looking into KDL-40U3000 (UK) manual that shows power cord should pop out.
Is it possible to provide me picture of that area to view small oblong panel?

Hi Susan,

If it is three prong power plug and TV was bought in UK then above power cord part number is correct and we need to remove back cover of TV by removing screws around back panel to replace the power cord in TV.

I hope these info will help, please post back if there is additional question.
Thanks.

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.

Is it easy to do myself or do I need an engineer?

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.

Its not tough job for a handy person, put TV facing down on flat surface and unscrew all around back panel to take out table stand (if it is attached to TV) and to take off back cover.
