Does it take batteries?
If so count the batteries it would take and multiply by 1.5
example if it took 8 batteries.   8*1.5 =12v

then just get an adapter.

it might be tricky to get the right plug but you could splice the old adapter to the new one and then check for polarity before plugging it in.
I can elaborate on any step if I went too fast.
