You might be sol when it comes to the power cable! Try ebay or the Manufacture of the printer to see what they suggest.

Might be worth just getting a new printer... sad to say! But there cheap now a days and ink on some of the new models have gone down in price.

If it is just a couple of months old you should have no problem obtaining a replacement plug from the manufacture. Also if it is new then mostly the cord you need to have it connect to your computer, is just an ordinary USB cable. If you go anywhere that sells computer stuff and say you need a USB cable for a printer, they will hook you up with what you need!
