Question Help, Unusual power cable old Panasonic TV (TK-P0E488)


Novice Member
Hi, I have a very old panasonic TV and the power cable got lost when I moved house. I can’t find anywhere the right type of power cable, it’s not one I’m familiar with. Can anyone help?
many thanks,

It will help if you can provide the model number of the TV set (normally found on a product label on the rear casing)
Is it a plasma TV or an old CRT TV or LCD ?
Do you know roughly how old the TV is ?

Looking at the state of the plastics there it is pretty old.

That's not designed to be a removable power cable. I doubt you will be able to buy one off the shelf, but it might be possible to find the connector and make a new one from scratch. Ideally you need a picture of one to identify the wiring, or failing that open up the TV to work out live, neutral, earth order.

Are you sure that model number is right ? According to Google, there is literally only one mention of that model number on the whole of the internet and that's in this thread !
