Two items to check: 1) You must ensure the unit is set for 115vac and not the standard 230vac for the UK. I'm not too familiar with the Alpha 8 but it may be changeable as standard or require a transformer change. 2) The UK pattern power cord will have the following color code: Brown is "live" or "hot", Blue is neutral and green/yellow stripe is ground. The US pattern is white, black and green (hope I got that right..??). I also assume the "DC" reference is a typo and you mean "AC"..? Regards, Richard.
