Computer Leads

I have an old Cannon printer which has a printer lead in an 8 shape - not the standard type used for Printers, Monitors and CPU etc.   The type of lead is the same as the one in this image: http://image.bizrate.co.uk/resize?sq=100&uid=418052428&mid=130364 .   However, I am finding it impossible to source somewhere I can get this lead from online.   I purchased a printer from eBay and have reason to suspect that the lead is non-functional and hence am looking to purchase a replacement.

Kind Regards,
Raheel

General FYI: The problem is that it does not power on.   I am not clear whether the problem is with the lead or printer- it did come on once after an immense amount of fiddling and taking power lead out and putting back in several times. However, after that one time it hasn't come on again.
