Question about Durabrand PDV-709
1. Is the "short" far enough away (an inch or better) from either the adapter or the plug? If so, and you are willing to try a basic repair, you might be able to fix this yourself. If the wires are color coded (one wire may have a white stripe or ridges along the length) half the battle is done. If not, mark one wire with nail polish or Liquid Paper.
Determine exactly where the break is by bending or twisting the adapter wire. Cut the wire at this point. Now strip the ends of the wires back being sure to eliminate the broken portions. Here you can either do some creative soldering or use some tiny wirenuts (you can ask for these at your local hardware store in the electrical department). Gently twist the two color coded wires together and follow with your wirenut. Be gentle. These wires can break easily. Do the same for the second pair. If you get pleasure from neatness, wrap the entire assembly in electrical tape.
2. You can probably use a "universal" AC adapter on this unit. Best to find one at Radio Shack or Best Buy. Ask the sales person for help in determining the correct voltage, load handling capability (amperage), and polarity.
I offer these solutions since I seriously doubt you will find an OEM direct replacement. Or your could try Ebay, Craig's List, or Yahoo. . . .
