Prestige Chess Computer

I am a proud owner of the Prestige Chess Computer which I purchased back in 1981. I just found out the transforme (power supply) no longer works. Can someone recommend where I may go to find another one or an equivalent. I would deeply appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks Les
