    Not enough information to let us help.

    If it is an AC cord for most of the consoles, you can pick up an extension cord from any hardware store.

    If it is a Leslie cord, these are available on Ebay or places like Tonewheel General.
    You will need to know how many pins, as there are several options.

    If it is for something other than these, you need to give us a model. Plates with this information is usually on the back somewhere.

    In reality, there is.

      Dude, there are about 100 internet image hosting sites. Take a picture of the plug outlet and post the page's internet address in the message so that at we can see what the outlet looks like. Don't act so damn helpless.

        In view of the complaints from members, I'll just say that there's no need to be rude, Delaware Dave.

        To the original poster. Follow Bob's advice. If it's a plug-in cord, it will almost certainly be a three pin 'kettle plug' type or a two pin 'figure 8' type. Look at the organ and you should see which one. You can get them at many electrical outlets or on line.
        It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

          You might try a simple computer power cord for three-pin, kettle type or the one powering your hi-fi, vcr (if you still use one of those antiquated things) or even your tv decoder cord for the two-pin type just to check before buying one. If your place looks anything like mine, there is bound to be one of these lying around somewhere... Of course if it is a permanent cord that had been ripped or cut off, you will need to get a piece of appropriate electrical cord and a wall plug to reconnect.

          Good luck!

            Well, Dave... thank you so much for your disrespectful response. For your information, I am an older woman who simply wishes to find some advice. I am not extremely tech-savvy and have no younger people around me who may help me. I simply wish to play the instrument that I have had for years. I have been playing since I was 8 years old and now that my mother, who is in hospice care, is in our home, I would like to play for her. So your disrespect is not appreciated.

              I hope that this will help with your request:

              As an alternative, you could take a photo with your smart phone or any other way to get a digital image of the identification plate and especially where the cord plugs in, then move the file to your desktop, your main screen when starting the computer, for convenience, labelling it "plate" and/or "plug-in"? A Jpeg file might be the most convenient, but first try whatever you have.

              Then when you respond in this forum, look at the tool bar just above your reply window, and select the icon third from the right, a square box with a green tree. If you hover over it, the balloon should read "Insert image." Clicking on that you will see a requester "From Computer." Select that. Then Choose File. You will then have a number of choices. Select Desktop. Then scroll through your desktop items until you see those files you have entitled. Select them one by one. They may take a little while to load. When you see them in your reply box, select them by double-clicking, then select the size, and I suggest choosing a larger size, which may be important for the gang here to read the details of the serial number or model.

              Please let us know if you are having problems with this, as I am sure you will succeed one way or another!

              Even those who are tech savvy here must admit there is a learning curve to posting items. I hereby publicly admit that I still have not found an ideal way to post just a sound file (no video).

              Respectfully,

              Dave (one of several in this forum; it seems that the other Dave's have helped others out from time to time).

                Here are two type of cords that are used and readily available If you lost the cord in a recent move You might recognise the type? By looking at the Organ mating part you should be able to identify if either of these are close. The problem for you might be that the organ is positioned against the wall and you are un able to move it to look and see the mating part. If anyone you know could take a picture of the front of the organ we should be able to identify the model and then get you started with most likely choices you have made it this far with technology , signing in and posting a message. it is easy - Give it ago.

                  Excellent idea PGR, to post the pics of the two different cables and connectors. I am willing to send the original poster the proper cable regardless of cost for probably being located 1000's of miles away. Even if you stand in front of your instrument write down all the names and model descriptions you can see (not the tabs, selectors and switches). Post those and maybe someone will recognize something that would enable us to research some in order to assist some more.

                  We love to assist fellow organists and musicians. Welcome to this Forum!
