I`m no expert here but the specification for that monitor is:

Power Source DC Input: 12VDC 3.5A Power Adapter Input: Universal 100~240VAC, 50/60Hz Power Adapter Output: 12VDC 5A (Max) which I found click here

The closest match in the Maplin Catalogue is click here but please, please check with Maplins before you buy.

I'm afraid that the power supply mentioned by Taff™ is nowhere near man enough for the job. It has a max. output current of 1Amp. Your monitor needs 3.5 Amps. minimum @ 12VDC.
You could try the one below - it looks adequate (5 Amps. output)but you will probably need to adapt the low voltage output connector to suit your monitor (be very careful about polarity)

Why not contact the manufacturer and check if it can supply the correct power supply?

Thanks for the help - I am out of my depth here hence my proviso`s. Fortunately I find the Maplin`s staff very knowledgable and always willing to help too!!
