The Sony TC-152SD and TC-153SD use the same VM1024 mains cable. This is a three-pin system with the top middle pin earthed.
As far as I am aware, this cable is irreplaceable, and found only with this product. If anyone recognises it, then please feel free to drop me an email.
This cable has Hirakawa marked all over the wire. Hirakawa is a city located in Japan. I would presume that this place was the manufacturing origin of the cable.
Replacement Mains Cable
As far as I am aware, there are no replacement cables, and if you have lost your cable, then perhaps one thing to consider is to use the unit with rechargeable batteries. The battery operation on this unit is very good.
Cable Plug Pinout
As you can see, it is a three-pin system, with the bottom two pins as live and neutral, and the top centre pin as earth.
