[rescue] HP 9000 power problem

I have an HP 9000 715/100 (thanks to a listmember a while back).
It will not always stay powered on for more than a few seconds. I have
gotten it to run by plugging it into an outlet on a different breaker
where the voltage is just a bit higher. Seems that 121v will get it to
run, while 117v causes it to run for a couple of seconds and turn itself
This is with one drive in it. With a second drive it powers itself down
as soon as I hear the drive begin to spin up.
I suspect this is a power supply problem. This is reinforced by finding
some info in a comp.sys.hp.hpux archive about the same problem being
fixed by replacing the power supply.
Does anyone have a power supply for this beast, or have any experience
fixing this type of problem on a 7xx workstation?
