I also bought my stuff from B&H.
All of the warranty and repairs need to be sent back to Ikelite.
They have fantastic customer service. They are a fairly small company so you need to be patient. But they will definitely try to accomodate you if you need your cord back by a certain time.
It has been my experience that it is better for you to send it directly back to them, rather than having your local dive shop send it. The LDS are not necessary good about sending it right away. Also, when you call Ikelite, they can find your stuff very quickly if it is under your name, rather than the dive shops.

Just cut the cable (this is the "DIY-section", not the "sending back-section"), unsrew the bulkhead, gently press the pins out of the connector and remove the pins from wires (with a solder-apparatus).
WRITE DOWN WICH PIN/WIRE BELONGS WHERE !!!!!
Then solder the pins on the wire were it is still in good condition and reassamble the whole thing. And ready is Kees (Dutch saying for: simple job done!)
You do have to have a litle experience with soldering, because the pins and wires are small.

And tell the boatworker to be gentle. You can use a little bit of silicon (LITTLE BIT) to slide in the pins.
Or send it to Ike if you want to be sure.
