Power adapter / transformer voltage, is this a safe combination?

I have a digital photo frame and lost the original power adapter. The sticker on the product says it uses 5V DC 2A. I found another transformer that will fit and power it but I don't know if this is safe. It is marked 5.4V 2410 mA. I don't know what the difference is and certainly don't want to damage the product or start a fire. Can someone confirm that is is safe to use the alternate transformer? Thank you!!

    thank you, but can anyone confirm the volatage values on the replacement adapter that I am using are safe when compared to the original specs? Is there 'that much' of a difference? Thanks!!

do not use a transformer that is not a match to the original. go to a radio shack or contact the company that made or marketed your frame for a replacement transformer.

    well 2410milli-ampers = 2.41 ampers, so you want to use a transformer that puts out .41 amps dc and .4 volts dc higher than what the equipment calls for ? unless there is a + or -- certain amount %in the instruction manual i would not use it.

Hi Dianne, Check your photo size, if they are a large file size then this may cause issues. Try re-sizing some of your photos and try that (make back-up copies! - just in case!)

Digital photo frame repair

That all depends upon what is wrong with the frame. I would start by contacting the manufacturer since there are no standardized parts for the frames. Each is made to or for the specifications of the manufacturor and parts may not be interchangeable.

Downloading pictures from pc to photoframe

First install the application which you receive with the picture frame on your computer. Connect the frame with your computer by using the USB cable. Once you have connected the frame, you will be able to see an additional drive in "My Computer". Just copy the pictures from your computer and save them in that new folder.

In some software, which come with the digital frames will create a program by themselves after the installation. In these case, you need to open the program and then connect the photo frame to the computer. After connecting, you will see that the frame will synchronize with the computer and you will see that the program which you have already opened will show you the drive of the frame, where you can just transfer the pictures from your PC to the frame.

Can't load pictures to Omnitech Digital Photo Frame Model #15242

A remote for a digital photo frame? Are you sure it is an Omnitech Photo Frame? Mine did not come with one, but here is what you can do. Just load your pictures onto an SD chip and put it in the slot in the back of the frame. Plug in the power cord and then press the exit button on the back to get out of their sample pictures. Just play around with the OK - Exit and arrows on the back of the frame and you will be able to set up a slide show with the pictures from your mem chip. If you want more help you can go to: or call them at 1-866-540-8831 with questions.
