Here is how you might check the polarity of a 7.5 volt DC replacement adapter:
Put the 5 batteries into the unit and verify operation. NOW using a DC voltmeter measure the voltage from battery negative and meter negative connected and meter positive to the pin on the power jack. IF you see 7.5 volts positive, then the pin is the positive lead for the adapter.
If you see zero, then continue testing.
With the 5 batteries inserted, connect the positive meter lead to the positive of the stack of batteries. Now touch the negative meter lead to the pin.
If there is 7.5 volts there, then the pin is the negative lead for the adapter.
READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
USUALLY the jack has a contact that disconnects the batteery when the plug with sleeve is inserted.. We are testing the jack without inserting a plug here so the plug should HAVE THE BATTERY VOLTAGE with correct polarity on the pin.

Testimonial: "Very clear explanation for a non-techie to understand. Many thanks."
Your adapter should be an AD12M. Some have tried a switching version of this and it has not worked. Make sure yours is the AD12M and not the "ML" suffix one.
The reason is that some of these have filtering built into the adapter, and others do not. The filtering is often required.
