It's simple. Use a toshiba adapter. An IBM one may have the same pin but maybe not the exact voltage/amps. I have done this before and it messes up the battery so you cant charge it anymore.

Where can I get a travel adapter / charger for my Digimax A7


The A7 can work with standard AA batteries so you could just pack several extra sets.

Without knowing what country you're in and what country you're traveling to, I can't give you any specific recommendations, but a local electronics or office-supply store should have a selection of adapters to fit the plug of your charger into foreign power outlets. I found one at a nearby Radio Shack for my upcoming overseas trip.

IBM Thinkpad T42. About 1hr ago went black-dead. When the power supply is plugged in there is no icon illuminated. No power reaching anything. Recently have had some fan-error warnings and have been...


Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Hello pls help. My IBM x20 laptop always display "error 0198 power source is battery" during booting with no adapter plugged in. anyone pls help...


Hello,

I assume that you are trying to boot off of your battery and that possibly an update to your BIOS was performed and now you need to boot with a power adapter plugged in. IBM is touchy with this kind of thing. If you have your adapter plugged in, I might check to see if it has a light to indicate power on it and if it doesn't check the adapter where the power cord from the wall plugs into the adapter to make sure it is well seated.

Try taking the battery out and just use the AC adaptor.
Does the PC "come on" when you press the power button?
Does it show the animation bar at the bottom of the screen when XP first starts?

Thinkpad T43 wont get any AC power


I've run into this many times with IBM machines. The power management chip on the motherboard has failed. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix the problem.

IBM Thinkpad laptop wont start up


hi dear

Hi RD, Ouch! Have you tried taking the battery out to see if it will run on AC power when the battery is not installed? Sometimes a bad battery can kill the system.

Do you have a meter that you can measure the output of the AC adapter with to see if it is correct? If not, any chance you could swap adapters with someone for a while to see if theirs works on your computer and vice versa? A local shop may also be able to test your adapter to see if it's working.

oke

regards, cropp

Overseas Use


The operating voltage of the AC Adapter Kit/Compact Power Adapter/Battery Charger is 100V - 240V and conforms with international standards. Voltage may be unstable in some countries/regions. Please take care when using the device. The shape of the plug varies depending on the country/region. Make sure the conversion plug adapter is the right shape for your location.

If this is true, then why does the manual for my new PowerShot SD1100 IS say, "Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat generation, fire, electric shock or injury."

Is this just a standard disclaimer in case something weird happens by using a transformer to charge the battery?

Yes. The power supplies and battery chargers supplied with all Powershot Digital Cameras are designed to work on input voltages from 100-240 volts (50/60 Hz). The only item that you may need is a plug adapter that allows you to plug the U.S. type power supply or battery charger into the foreign type wall outlet. Plug adapters should be easily available at a local electronics store.
