Hercules ProphetView 720 Power Adaptor Polarity

I have lost my LCD screen power adaptor in a move and need to replace it with another one. I have a power adaptor from HP which has the same specs, 220V AC to 12V, but am not sure of the polarity.

Is the (+) on the outside of the connector and (-) on the inside or vice versa?
I have surf the web to find this info but did not managed.

Thanks for your support,

Theo.

    For anyone else's potential interest, I finally found the polarity of my Hercules ProphetView 720 Power Adaptor.



    The Inner pin of the connector that fits into the bottom of the LCD screen is the Positive ( + ).

    As such, the outer part of the connector has to be the negative ( - ).



    In case you have to buy a replacement power adaptor for such a ProphetView LCD screen from Hercules, now discontinued by the manufacturer, output has to be 12V and above polarity respected.

Yes the adapter must have an output of 12vdc AND rated for a least 4.0A output!

I need to know the polarity of my Hp Pavilion F1703 monitor as I have just brought a new power adaptor and before I connect up to the mains it says make sure you insert the adaptor the correct way round...


If the monitor does not have a symbol (similar to the letter 'C' with a dot in the middle), the cheapest digital multimeter can be used on the 'diode' or 'continuity' setting to check the input.
If the meter reads between 600 and 900, you are measuring the forward voltage drop of a protective diode.  Any other reading will mean that the positive probe of the meter is on the positive part of the connector.     i.e. If you are placing the positive meter lead on the center pin and the negative on the shell and it reads 600-900, then the power supply needs to have the negative applied to the center pin and the positive on the shell. If the negative lead is held on the center pin and the positive on the shell and the reading is 600-900 then the center pin is the positive input and the shell the negative.
The readings shown above mean that you are measuring the forward voltage drop of a diode meant to protect the unit against improper polarization and it will probably either die or ruin the adaptor if misapplying the polarity.
You can buy such a meter at electronics or auto parts stores for under $20 US.

Need the polarity of the adapter for polyview v17e moniter


i'm guessing you don't have the original adaptor to test it... sometimes polarity is printed onto the case where the adaptor plugs in... get out your magnafying glass to see it tho.

Monitor cannot be turned on


You will need to check the power adaptor for voltage , if that checks out then you will have to check the power circut in the monitor, look at the protection component and diodes in the power circut
