Unscrewed the cover off my 2015 Panasonic.CX802B. Looking at the bottom of the photo you can see where the AC power (fig 8) socket is on the PCB. What is a little disappointing is that I can't upgrade the fuse easily. To upgrade would involve taking the small risk of unsoldering the ceramic fuse to put in socket for a 20mm fuse which would then enable me to put in a quality silver one.

I may settle for just an upgraded power cable. For this I plan to by an Audioquest 90-degree fig adatpor (C7 90) becaus the TV is hung on the wall, with a gap of just 6cm. Then I plan to make my own braided silver wire and teflon power cable. I will share the results soon.

Has anyone else done this or other upgrades to their TV PSU?
