    Help Panasonic telly mains lead

    So, I’m looking to wall mount my sexy new Panasonic 58DX750B.


    Problem is, the supplied mains cable is too short.
    Sourcing a 2 core mains cable isn’t the problem, the problem is the plastic clip connector that goes into the tv
    and I’m pulling my hair out trying to find one. I can’t even find a single one (so I could fit one to each wire)

    Even talking to a couple of online cable specialists has drawn a blank.
    There has to be a Molex, or Dupont clip out there that will do the job, surely?

    I really want to keep the original cable intact, in case of any warranty issues further down the line.


    Anyone have any advice/experience as to how to achieve what I want?

    Thanks chaps

    This 'might' do it. Message the seller and ask to measure the pin distance.

    I would say the power adaters for panny's are generic - although the one pictured above is only 2 core, this one is 3. But the clip is on the correct side and hopefully the middle will just fill the void?

    Found this one too for a 32"

    Almost, but the connector shown is slightly different to mine. Mine is hollow between the 2 pin sleeves. - Edit, just read all of your post. you may well be right bud. I'll message them too for pin distance

    Can you not just cut the wire just after the connector and attach your own wire from there, either by solder or a small male and female connector of your choice? Buy two though and reconnect the original if needed, I hardly think they're going to check inside the cover (assuming there is a cover over that)

    Yes, there's a cover, held by a single screw. Your suggestion is an option, I agree, but if I was to splice/solder, I'd want it well away from the TV itself.
