I'll look around but it is definitely a terminal that I have never seen before. We have to go to Sydney but it won't be for another 3 weeks. If anyone wants to pm me ( laudire2you at yahoo.ca ) I can send a picture.

Don't know about you, but to my eye the manual shows NOT a standard
computer power cord, but rather a common cord used in battery
chargers, radios, VCRs, DVD players, and at least the Playstation 1,
if not also other game consoles. Check your small appliances, you
might find several to test with.  They commonly have either one or two
notches, seemingly designed to create unnecessary incompatibility!

If you need a replacement, check your local thrift/second hand store,
they'll probably be some for a fraction of the new cost at a place
like Staples, plus you're recycling!
