How can I get a replacement power supply?


What you are after is an AC adapter this model I found on ebay has 120 volts to 240 volts to 12 volts make sure the DC voltage output matches the Voltage of your hard drive. The current output has to be the same amount or larger in value. So if your drive needs 2A a 2A or larger value means it can handle the current load put on it by the Hard drive.

Will not power on


WELCOME TO FIX YA


i hope you didn't dropped it cause dropping it may cause to malfunction or no function at all
here are some steps you might follow if its not broken it may work
1. first of all check the adapter if it says Input:100V-240V~50/60Hz Output:5V/2A; 12V/2A ,
if you have the original adapter check for the values
2. if it doesn't powers your external drive then check for a adapter of same inputs and outputs
see if it works with another adapter,go to a shop and ask someone that you want to check ,
if it works then you have to buy it.cause our adapter is out.

if it doesn't your final procedure should be this

1. install driver from here
2. install it .and see if it detects the drive works.

now if it doesn't help ignore this post .cause i don't want to reffer you to a service center,cause i consider this as a help to you.

Best Regards
do tell me that how did you resolved the matter ....!??

Can you please provide me the power adapter specs? I need to buy a new one.


I found This power supply

It is listed as suitable for the Porsch drives, but the model number on your current unit should tell if it's the right one.

At 12V 3A it is rated higher than the common 12V 2A which is a common rating for hard drive power adapters, and also supplies 5V. These may be required for your drive.

The site has other LaCie power adapters if the model number does not match.

Second time this has happened, Apricorn ez bus dts power supply


You can use a universal Adapter.
All you need to do is to match the correct voltage and the correct Ampere.
Lets say for example the input of your adapter is : 100-240v, 50,60hz . and 0.5 A
the output is : 12vor 5v 2A
So check this that correspond to the one you already have.
But one thing :: don't use one that is of a higher voltage capacity.
It will burst out forever the disk........
If you need any further help please let me know.

Unusual Power Requirement


Should not be a problem, the theory here is Volts * Amps =Watts

5V * 2A = 10w

The alternative is to get a LM7505 ($1 or 2) from radioshack or any electronic supply and regulate the 12v down to 5v. its about 1/2 square IC chip.

Pardon my ASCII:
[_]
input 1.7V - 35V ________| | |_____ +5v (+/- 1%)
Pin 1 Pin 3

will accomodate 1 Amp (1.25 if heat sinked) for the CMOS version, slightly higher for the olde r(less effecient) version

The other pin is ground. OF course you will want to check the specs and pin assignment for the brand you buy, these are typical.
