Burned out the flyback transformer, I'll bet. Most common
failure I saw on those. Apparently they used a really cheap transformer.

MMJ is just another RS-232 connector. You can easily buy/build adapters
to connect up a 25-pin connector. BlackBox sells them, for example, but
they are more expensive there than from other places.

VT terminals are also available from many places for very little.
Just check ebay for example.
