Step 1 — Power Cord and Transformer ¶
Carefully de-solder ends of power cord from circuit board.
Keep track of the colors of the cords. The brown cord leads to the L on the circuit board, and this cord will lead to a fuse in the power plug. The blue cord leads to the N on the board.
Finally, pull the power cord through the rear panel to completely remove it.
