DC Power Connections

Problem: Due to the internal AC supply recently quitting on me, I need to wire up a DC cable for my MP. I've been through the manual, and all of the 1000MP archives, but other than disassembling the MP can't find a diagram showing how to wire the plug for the DC cable input. Anyone have such a diagram, or maybe how the plug is wired for one of the external supplies.

While I'm at it, the MP manual does not include a schematic of the internal AC power supply. The PS is made by Futaba, and has the number FP1406A on the circuit board. Does someone have a schematic they could email me, or know of a place where I could obtain another PS? I know I could get one from Yaesu, but $300 seems a bit much for a 25 amp switching power supply.

Solution: There is an internal fuse on the board where all power cables from the supply are connected. It is not visible, but under a small plate. I found this when I added an internal supply in an FT1000MP (DC) that were sold in Germany. Page 103 has information how to connect for DC operation. Mark ON4MA
