    Hi, guys new here I needed some help on figuring out what cord I would need in jucing this baby up. I tried a few AC adapters already without any luck. I also dont think this thing has and off switch I think the wire was one of those rotary. Ill upload the adapters that I have already tried. I also tried looking up information about this decoration but had no luck prob because its so old and there seems to be no offical company site. Thanks for any help.

    Is there any info on the back?
    You might have to take it apart to figure it out.
    There is also the possibility that the polarity is wrong on your adapter.
    (Positive and negative backwards)

    No info as far as looking under the bottom and also took off the bottom and nothing there either. Its one of those plug AC adapter ports you cant really mess that up lol unless you meant something else. I tried 3 different adapters and nothing. The light doesnt come on nor does the santa move or speak so idk if it getting under powered or what. Thanks for the feedback.

    What I meant is, the inside portion of the power jack may have been negative on the original ac adapter, and the ones you are trying have positive on the inside.

    Then again, it could have a blown fuse inside.

    I would not guess at the voltage as that could fry it.

    Might be worth taking apart and try and fix?

    Ahhh, I see what you mean. Ya..I wish the thing gave me more info in regards to power supply requirements. I think I might take more of it apart and see if there is a fuse I havent seen one yet.

    Hi Jamie,
    Adding to the above posts, what voltage is the bulb?
    It might give an indication of power requirements.
    Possibly even an AC adaptor..
    EDIT: AC/AC and not the AC/DC you are trying..
