Broken ac outlet from board. where do i get parts?
The outlet where the ac adapter plugs into broke off the board ( the prongs broke). The scanner will not work on batteries either. Where can I get a part for this so that I can re-solder it to the board?

YOU DONT ADAPT IT, U REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE OR USE THE CORRECT PRONG CORD. THE CORDS ARE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE FROM 20 TO 30 BUCKS AND EVEN CHEAPER ON LINE. IF U HAVE A NEWER HOME IT IS MANDATED BY LAW THAT YOU USE 4 PRONG CORD NOT 3 PRONG UNLESS THE HOME CAME WITH A 3 PRONG OUTLET.
If the prongs are shaped incorrectly then you might have a European model (or if you are in Europe then you might have an American Model). The AC adapter (the big block) should be rated for use in North America and Europe (input 100V - 240V) so you might just need to replace the plug half of the laptop charger. It might just be easier to contact the seller and ask them to send the correct plug for you AC Adapter.
Please rate if this helps.
P.S if you have any other appliance with a different prongs coming off the plug DO NOT PLUG IT IN!!! laptops chargers are ok because they are built to work in different voltages.
If you have an on-board charger for your power chair this outlet is for your charger cord. One end of the AC cord plugs into the wall outlet and the other end plugs into the trapezoid shape outlet on the side of the chair. This is the same shaped AC cord used to power computers and other devices. You can buy one a most hardware stores and places like Radio Shack. If you are using an off board charger which plugs into the front of the joystick (round plug)to charge the chair, then you don't need to use the on-board one and you don't need another AC cord. Hope this helps.
Most likely the AC Adapter has a short in either the cord or the black box which contains the board which converts the power from your home outlet to 12V or 19V which the laptop motherboard uses. This would cause thebuzz or hum coming from it. I suggest getting a replacement AC Adapter and see if it fixes the issue. The other thing that could be causing this is that the DC Jack that you are plugging the adapter into, could be broken. Most of these jacks have 3 prongs that are soldered onto your motherboard and if any of them break and lose contact to the motherboard it will result in your battery not charging and possible feedback to the AC Adapter. If that is the case then it can usually be repaired at a PC Repair store or Electronics Repair store for around $200. Let me know if this fixes your issue.
The first thing I would suspect is a noisy AC supply. Try using a
ground adaptor. Sounds technical, but if you every went to Grandpa's
he may have been using a few and you just didn't know what they were.
They are commonly used to adapt a 3 prong electrical plug to a 2 prong
AC outlet. If your TV does have a 3 prong AC cord, give this a try
before you do anything. It's a cheap solution and often works like a
