I got one of these in a box at an auction but the plug was cut, does anybody have a wiring schematic for it? It looks almost new and I would love to resurrect it. Any help will be appreciated.

Can you post a couple of pics of the back where the power cord is or was or is cut. And how many wires were in the cut plug wire if you happen to know?? Is it a plug in the wall type unit or does it require 12vdc to power it. I can find pics of the front of it, but nothing showing the back of the unit. Speaking of that, is this re unit you have that I am speaking about as so I know I am not chasing stupid mistakes on my own part LOL!! Here is a pic of one I found searching, just a from pic.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170625/fc86851029cc9fff0519b3f8b1301671.png
Let me know if this is the one and if so, again, can you post up some pics of the back of the unit. And one with the case removed if possible. This will help us to help you. And last but not least, is it plug into wall type unit or is it 12VDC input?
Hope you get it resolved and fixed. Good day. And keep us posted about it!! Again, good day and God Bless.

It appears this had a Echo board inside it also. Interesting! The picture is correct but the system will not let me upload any pictures. It says wrong file format :(

Looks like it's missing a fuse inside. The gold pieces on the board appear to hold a fuse. Have you tried placing a fuse on that board? As far as the power wire being cut, as long as it has a power lead out of it, you should be able to power it off 12vdc from what I can see. Doesn't appear to be a plug into the wall unit. When you flip the top of the unit over and show the board, look at the fuse holder on that board. Get an auto fast blow fuse of like. 5 amps and place it in the fuse holder spot. Then power it off the red/black wires coming out of the unit. These wires need to go to 12vdc it appears.
I could be totally off base here with what I have said, but from what I see, I know it at least needs that fuse to get power across that area. Just don't know the amperage unless they printed it on the board itself. Just don't use a too high of an amperage fuse just in case there are any other issues. A 2.5-5. Amp fuse should do the job. Again, I could be wrong about this as well, but I am just going off what I can see in the video. Hope you get it working. God day.

Thank you for your help! All I need to know now is the wiring for the plug end. It appears to have 6 wire cord and inside they are marked C D G F E H A. D goes to White, G goes to Blue, F goes to Black, E goes to Red, H goes to Yellow and A goes to Shield
Something tells me this is going to be a challenge and a half
