>>933601 Since when do RCA connectors have plastic rings with a metal tip? It's clearly a male center pin DC plug (think nokia charger), no doubt this plugged into a power brick to run the light.
OP, pretty unlikely you'll find a brick to suit it, you'll need check the lamp for power ratings (a sticker on the underside of the base that tells you the power consumption of the unit) find a matching wall wart, splice it in and you're done. You're gunna need to open the lamp to work out whether that plug is supposed to be center positive or center negative; If there is no power rating sticker on it have a look at the voltage regulator in use while you have the thing apart, this should give you an idea of its requirements. Post pics of the component side of the PCB (if it has one) and an overall view of the lamp if this makes no sense.
Or something similar. I've actually seen IKEA lamps that used RCA connectors for their 12V connection from wall wart to lamp cord. Bad idea. Imagine digging around in that rats nest of cables behind the audio equipment and connecting your phono input to a 12Vac source.
>>933605 >You're gunna need to open the lamp to work out whether that plug is supposed to be center positive or center negative;
If it's a low voltage lamp (incandescent), they offten run on AC. No positive or negative. They also 'float' the 12 Vac with respect to mains grounding, so there is no hot/neutral to worry about.

op, did say floor lamp.. maybe there was not enough outlets and the previous owner did some nigger rigging and put a cell phone charger transformer inside the base of the floor lamp tied directly into the same cord that comes out of the floor lamp into the wall..
what kind of "floor lamp" are you talking about exactly op?
