Power Supply Jack (C264 series)
Note that a few Plus/4s came with the standard round DIN type connector, but
most of them have the mechanically incompatible square connector. If you have
some handicrafting skills, a pair of pliers, maybe a screwdriver, and 20
minutes of time, you can convert the plug of a standard C64 power supply into
one that fits into the square connector depicted below. That's what I did,
since I don't have the original power supply unit, and it works perfectly :-)

A | 9VAC

C | +5V DC
D | GND
Note: All pictures show the jack side.

Thanks to: Me/PK, who borrowed me his original Plus/4 power supply,
so that I could make my own one from a C64 PSU.
