    I have an old rca pro942 camcorder that needs a cable that is no longer
    made. The cable goes from the adaptor to the camcorder, and there were
    4 stock numobers that would fit. DC Cable 221364, 206731, 221284, or
    226601. I have the adaptor, it's the calbe that I need.

    Does anyone have one that they could sell me?

    How many pins are on each end of the connectors?

    Both the adaptor and the camera have a small hole with a post in it.
    Someone measured it for me, and said it was an unusually small
    measurement (I've temporarily misplaced the paper), something like
    2.55? The adaptor says DC OUTPUT, and under that (from left to right)it
    says 6V then there's a line with 3 dots under it, then 2A, then under
    that it has a diamond with a horizontal line through it, connecting it
    to a circle with a smaller circle in it, which has a horizontal line
    coming out of it which goes to a diamond whith a + in it.

    The camera says DC IN, under that it says 6V. Under that is the same 3
    symbols, but the circle has a solid dot in it.

    sounds like a normal DC to Dc power cord. Did you check with Radio

    I've checked with everyone. The problem is they are an unusually small
    size. I think someone once mentioned 2.55 mm. Does that make sense? No
    one could find anything that small in any electronic catalogue. A
    friend said he could make a cable for me if we could get the plugs (or
    whatever they're called), but it seems they were custom made for this
    model of camcorder.

    Hence my post.

    I just went to the URL and saw the three cables you're talking about;
    I've emailed the company asking about the cable. Thank you so much for
    the lead. I'll let you know if it pans out.

    BTW, I found the measurement that a guy at an electronics store made of
    the holes that the plugs would go into. I was way off in what I wrote.
    The figures were 1.55 plug x 4mm center.
