Unhappy LED Curtain Light String Power cord

Hi, so last year I bought two curtain string lights for my wedding in Brazil and apparently the power chord is not working anymore.
1 of them has 3 pins (attached picture)
the other one has 2 pins, dont know the difference.

I was wondering If anyone knows If I can use a "LED ROPE light" power cord or if there is a difference between an LED ROPE light power cord and an LED Curtain light power cord?

I am attaching what the original power cord looks like that i am needing to replace.

It does look like a 'semi-standard' rope light connector. The problem is it's not a standard connector, and rope lights can use any one of the 162,038 connectors out there to make that connection. (a slight exaggeration)

Unfortunately buying a rope light from a different manufacturer or even the same may or may not use the same connection.

Your best bet is to give it a try from a store or mail order place that takes returns.

First check to see if there is a fuse somewhere in the plug or cord. If there is no fuse, with everything connected and plugged in wiggle the plug where it goes into the wall. Wiggle the 2 or 3 pin connector and flex and wiggle the power cord and lights looking for a bad or loose connection. And as a last resort a handy man could cut off the connectors and connect the cord back together (solder, wire nuts, butt splices...) without the plug and socket.
