You need a 9V adapter capable of at least 500mA, more current capability is OK. Then there is the plug, you will need it to match the original one both in type and polarity.

The polarity may be shown on the device it powers. A picture of the old plug and the place it plugged into might help us help you.

That kind of plug is available with a small hole diameter and a larger hole diameter. Get the correct one.

I wrote up a little thing on this for my work and most are either a 2.1x5.5 or a 2.5x5.5 barrel plugs and if you have a ball point pen you can usually tell which is which as it will fit inside the 2.5 and it will not go completely in the 2.1. Works with almost all ball point pens.
