The part it's in is called the DC IN port. Once this is removed the center bracket on the back of the unit can sometimes be pulled slightly out and the tip removed. If this cannot be done, it's a fairly simple procedure to replace it.

Here's the part: [linked product missing or disabled: IF153-021]
