Yeah okay,
Have no clue what your talking about. It still works, but where the cord
goes in to the square adapter is loose and also, part of the cord has a
split in it.

If it's screwed, pull it apart, chop out the bit of broken wire and
reconnect the ends - MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT CROSS THE WIRES - for that is
certain death for your jukebox.

If it is welded, get a replacement. You will need to match the voltage,
and some will argue the current too (the mA (milliAmp) number) ...but if
you need to mismatch the current, try to go just OVER rather than just
under, and don't leap by more than about 200mA.

Hope that makes sense,
