I hae a Casio/Phonemate Work & Talk Speaker Phone Answering Machine, Model DC 11V, TA120 350mA.
A short occured and I need to purchase a new transformer/AC adapter. Radio Shack doesn't carry an 11V.
Can anyone tell me where I can purchase one?

Re: Need a new part
Radio Shack's universal (9V-13V, Model 273-1631) adapter should work fine for you. You can try setting it to the 10.2V setting, and if that doesn't work for you, you can try the 12V setting.
Given that wall current can easily fluctuate 10% or more, the 1V difference is unlikely to matter.
Make sure you get the polarity of the Adaptaplug correct -- inverting the voltage could actually damage your answering machine!

You can get the user manual for this unit from this link and then print it so you have a co[y.<br /><a href="http://www.casio.com/support/manuals/answeringmachines/ta160.pdf"><br />http://www.casio.com/support/manuals/answeringmachines/ta160.pdf</a><br /><br />
Look on the underside of the unit. You will see a three (3) digit number. When you remotely call your number and the answering maching picks up, immediately input the 3 digit number. The answering maching will then play the new messages for you.
The remote function will allow you to control your answering device from anywhere. On the Phonemate brand, you simply "key in" your answering machine's PIN number when your answering machine picks up your call. From there you can playback your messages, erase messages, record a different greeting and more. On some models the "default" PIN code is stamped on the bottom of the unit. Some units have a battery backup to retain messages if you have a power outage. If your PIN code IS printed there, and you have forgotten your PIN code, simply remove the battery from the bottom of the unit, wait a minute, and reinstall the battery. Your PIN code will be reset. I have attempted to get a manual for your unit and the best on the web so far has only come up with the address as follows Phonemate Answering Machine Sales & Service Center
