Resmed AirCurve 10 VAUTO HELP

Resmed AirCurve 10 VAUTO HELP
Hello everyone 
  I am new here and looking for some help with a Resmed Aircurve 10 VAUTO Bipap.

  The machine works great and is out of warranty. The only issue i have is the power sometimes goes on and off. 
  I played with the cord (Like we do with a cellphone charge cable) and it would work so I thought it was the power
  cable and bought a new one. Still have the same issue. Its the receptacle inside the unit. I am good with electronics
   just looking to find a source for the part. I called a service place and described the problem and was trying to get an
   idea of the cost and time. I explained I thought it should be an easy repair. He indicated that if it could be repaired
   would be 80 BUT he said it was possible the receptacle was a part of the mother board it would be more expensive 
   and that I should send it to him today to examine. I asked if I provided the serial number could he determine if it was
   integrated or not. He said best way was to send it to him. He also was trying to sell me a new unit. 

  Can anyone help or give me an idea where to find the part?

  Serial Number is     23172780812   REF   37051  LOT  1276633  DN  421

     Much Appreciated

This video, at the timestamp I entered, shows a quick glance of the yellow power connector on an opened machine.
You may need to pause and rewind a few times to see what you can see.

AFAIK: All of the S10 machines look the same on the outside and look the same on inside too. Only the software changes from model to model.
However, I've never seen any repair manuals or exploded parts diagrams or places to source parts on the interweb.

It should be easy to open up the case and take a look to see if any wiring looks frayed or if a solder connection is loose or whatever.

Getting hold of any parts would be a whole different ballgame and it would probably be easiest to find a donor machine from the S10 series.  
Maybe someone is selling a high-hours machine on craigslist or a down-market model at a good price.
Presumably ANY model would suffice because the power connector parts will be identical across all models.

First things first... open it up and see what you can see.
If nothing obvious shows up.. it might be a problem on the motherboard or something like that.

P.S. The power connector is nowhere near the motherboard. The power is at the back, the motherboard is at the front.
As you can see in the video.. the black-white-red wires send the power from the connector to the motherboard.

A power adapter is relatively inexpensive. I have had one fail, and keep one on standby. I bought power supplies for my Resmed Aircurve 10 Vauto for less than $20 each from my local supplier. I'm seeing under $30 on Amazon.
