I need to know the POLARITY of the AC adaptor to provide the correct setting using a universal adapter.


there is no polarity in ac current as ac means alternating current and that means alternating between positive to negative back to positive back to negative and so on
only dc ( direct current ) and the center pin of the plug is designated as the positive pole has polarity, the outer case being the negative
OR Are you asking the voltage of the ac adapter and the voltage of the dc output side of the adapter

Can someone help with the DC Volt, amperage and polarity of Altec Lansing 120i speakers please. I lost mine. Thanks.


Polarity and V are usually indicated somewhere near the plug. If not open the one with the plug, look at the wires connected to it, usually black and red, if still not clear follow one of the wires to the first connection point, if its to an electrolytic cap, the caps polarity will tell you what the polarity is at that input, the plug will be the same. The amperage really doesn't matter unless its too low, it can be much higher then rated, since trahsformers are self regulating for amperage.

I have lost my AC Adapter (HDAD15W101-124) to operate my Medion life USB 2.0 colour flatbed scanner. Can I use a different adapter?


There are a few items that are important when trying to substitute an adapter. Obviously the connector must fit. After that, it is not so much the input voltage/current that is important, but rather the output/voltage/current as well as polarity. The output voltage of the adapter must match the device's requirements. The output current of the adapter must be at least as much as the device requires. Lastly, and most important, the polarity of the connector MUST MATCH, otherwise smoke and flames will occur. On round connectors, most devices have the positive terminal in the center (but mot all).

I lost my GE Ultrasonic 2.1 Speaker power adapter and i need need ones but i dont know what to buy, the voltage it requires..6 or 9 volts?


at most electrical stores you can buy a universal power adaptors with a selection of socents to fit most connections. and which has a selector on it for various voltages settings.
take one of the little connectors and see which one fits. then checking the polarity on your device set the polarity the same when plugging the connector into the power supply cable. adjust voltage as needed.

Warning: when connecting a variable power adaptor alway connect on the lowest voltage setting and work up as too high voltage can distroy your appliance.

Where i find ac dc adaptor durabrand portable pdv 705


You should go to a local electronics shop with the old adaptor.
They merely need to match: Voltage in Voltage out Current requirements Plug size Plug polarity (center positive or negative) There is nothing "magic" about the original vendors power adapter.

I can't determine the polarity of my GPX PDL705 portable dvd


Hi,

I have uploaded the GPX PDL705 manual to this site today. If you check tomorrow they may have posted it by then.

If you look at the small print on the adaptor it should indicate by diagram Voltage output, current capacity, type and tip polarity by small diagram. Most adaptors are 'positive' -- but if you are unsure do not plug the adaptor into the device because it will fry it!

Won't work


oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera.

What is the voltage, current, and polarity of the power supply for the SC-D23?


You should use the original Samsung supply since it is a switching power supply capable of supplying the needed current to operate the onboard charging circuit. Many customers have tried to go with generic supplies and it opens the inline chemical fuse due to the unit drawing heavy current during battery charging. Hope this helps.
