There's some info here on the connector pinout, in case you haven't seen it 
before, but I've been unable to find any schematics so far:

There's an oddball 1700uF cap on the supply which has an additional third 
lead sticking out the top of the can - I don't think that's something I've 
seen before. I don't think the third lead is actually connected to 
anything, so maybe it's only there for structural support. Weird, though.
