How do you chane the power cable on a LED TV???

I have recently got a LG LED TV to put in to one of the bedrooms but the power cable is quite short so I need to extend it. Normally its a simple case of unplugging the supplied cable and replacing it with a longer one but on these LED models the power cable goes into the back of the TV behind a removible cover and I am worried that if I remove this cover to invertigate further I may void the TV warrantry.

I did contact LG direct but they were of no help so anyone else had this issue and if so how do you overcome it???

The best way would probably be to attach a male IEC plug. Then you can extend it with any regular (or high performance) mains lead.

If you have a moulded on mains plug, which seems almost universal these days, you will have to chop that off first, and then follow the normal wiring conventions.

All that said, for a bedroom, wouldn't a normal extension socket (less than fiver in most DIY shops or supermarkets) do the trick?
