You might be able to use the parts from an old cell phone adaptor. Have you tried that?
If not don't mess with any off brand adaptor. Get another one from Garmin at their website Garmin .com

Does my Casio g-200 keyboard have a fuse ? If so what type and where is it ?


I'd go exchange the power supply for the correct one (check the voltage, polarity and mA rating that's marked next to the power input). It may be too late, though.
There will be a fuse on the internal power input board, as well as one in the power supply, but if the instrument is turning on and lighting up, it's not a blown fuse.

My whistler quit working. How do I fix it?


What Quit? Does it not power up? If so, have you checked the fuse that is in the plug end of the power cord? The tip unscrews to reveal a 2 amp glass fuse. Does the lighter socket power other 12 volt devices? If not, check the vehicle's fuse box. Did you press or turn the power switch? (sorry had to ask)

The power electric was run over by mower -unit has no electical power


You could bring it to a repair shop where they will probably install a new power cord. The now-shortened power cord can be fitted with a new plug, and used as before instead - for a fraction of the cost.

From what I can tell, the pressure washer is a 120 volt type. Purchase a replacement plug - called a "cord cap". The most common configuration is pictured below:

steve_con_4.jpg

A 15 amp / 125 volt male cord cap made by Leviton.

Your's is likely rated at 125V/ 15A (like the one above). This means there's 2 parallel blades and a ground pin - like most grounded plugs in your home. If unsure, bring the cut off section of the power cord to a hardware store to select an identical cord cap. You'll want to purchase the type of cord cap that has terminal screws - not the type without screws. The packaging of the cord cap will indicate how much of the cord jacket and individual wire insulation to remove. A little more or less won't make it impossible to do - but don't deviate too much from these dimensions for the best results. Once the cord has been stripped correctly - Disassemble the cord cap body from the outer shell by removing the screws on the front. Loosen or remove the 2 screws at the cord grip end and slip the shell over the end of the power cord.

Bring the cord cap body to the cord. The body will have 3 screws. One each silver (or light colored), bronze (or dark colored) and green. Loosen all the screws - do not completely remove them. Twist all the strands of each wire so that they are bundled together and there are no stray wires sticking out. Do this for each white, black and green wires. The black wire will connect to the bronze colored screw, the white wire to the silver screw and the green to the green colored screw. You can either insert the stripped wires into the small holes at the back of the terminal screws, or wrap them around the screw terminals themselves. The best way is to wire from the back - but if you choose to wrap around the screws, be sure all the small wires are under the screw head. Tighten the screws and tug the wires one at a time to make sure they are held firmly in place.

Once satisfied that the wires are connected correctly and tight - slide the outer shell towards the cord cap body. Align the screws with the holes in the outer shell. The parts will only fit together one way - so don't try to force it together. Tighten the screws in the front and then install / tighten the screws at the cord end to grip the cord. This clamp should be firm - but not to the point of crushing the cord. Test in a ground fault protected outlet and you're done!

I hope this helps.. please rate this reply - thanks!

Hello I have a problem with my detector and that is, that the device just went off completely and won't turn on now?


Did you check the fuse that is in the end of the power cord? Does your lighter socket power other 12 volt devices? If the fuse in the power cord is bad, replace it with a new 2 amp fuse. If your lighter socket doesn't power orther 12 volt devices then check the vehicle's fuse panel.

When I plug the radar in the green dot turns on for a second then turns off, nothings on afterwards... I used a new wire and fuse and nothing....what could be wrong?


Does the unit work in another vehicle? If not, first thing to check is the fuse in the power cord. The adapter (part that plugs into the lighter socket) has a replaceable 2 amp 3 AG fuse inside it. The end of the adapter, which has the silver tip, unscrews to gain access to the fuse. CAREFUL: Unscrew slowly! The tip contains a spring which may fly out when disassembling. With use, screw cap on plug may loosen. Retighten occasionally.

No power for Sony ICFCD855V Dream Machine.


Power supply seems to be 12 volts. I have ICFCD855V's and the power cords on both broke just past the strain relief on the power supply. That shorted the supply and blew the fuse (1.6 amp). I soldered in a new fuse and the supply (with no load) puts out 12VDC. Since it happened to 2 in my house I can't believe Sony doesn't have a recall on these things
