Just get one like the one that went out. id recommend a 600 watt power supply xion.com has good one
make a list or notes if you must or replace one lead at time and make a note of where it goes before you disconnect it '

the reason im recommending a 600 watt is most power supplies are marginal to begin with in my opinion. so getting a higher rated unit allows you to add accessories you might want to adds
i burned up a chief max 600 watt in a month for some reason replaced it with a 425 till i got a new one and bought a 600 watt xion.com power supply the original was 425 watt. i guess i got what i paid for the chief max was only 28 dolara from 3btech.net (a good site to bookmark

I lost my power adapter for my simple tech 1tb 96300-41001-172, what is the voltage, amp rating as well as what pole is the +?thanks.


Open it up and look inside. Some enclosures use screws others use plastic clips which may require a tool thinner than a credit card to release the clips.
The Internal Drive...Is it a 2.5" drive that runs on 5 volt or a 3.5" drive that uses combined 12 volt & 5 Volt power supply.
These drives don't use much current. 1 to 2 Amp
The adapter may have had a single voltage output for 2.5" drives or a dual voltage supply for the 3.5" Probably 12v or 5v
Anyhow, there are lots of hard drive empty enclosures that can be bought... as hard drives internally use a standard connection for data & power. Just swap the internal HD over to a new enclosure.

Hope this Helps

Just paid over 1,500 last year an has not rungood since. starts up real good, but once aair is turned on it stops running, or it might run one air at times. on my way back to michigan an not a happy...


This generator is a 5KW model. This means it can supply up to 5000 watts of power, total. Not all devices list the watts they need to be provided - instead these devices list the power they need as volts and amps. This can make it hard to determine what the actual watt requirements are for the device.

Overly simplified, watts is equal volts times amps (watts = volts x amps). A single 120 volt light bulb that uses .833 amps consumes 100 watts. If you checked a regular 100 watt light bulb with an ammeter, you'd find it does indeed draw .833 amps.

Working the formula a different way, we can learn how many amps this 5000 watt generator can supply at 120 volts, too. If all the loads you need to connect to this generator are 120 volt types, that means the total amount of amps the generator can supply is 5000 watts / 120 volts = 41 amps purely resistive loads (like a toaster or light bulb) maximum under ideal conditions. There is never a time when ideal actually happens, and not all loads are purely resistive - many are inductive. Inductive loads are motors (like your A/C), fluorescent lamps, computer power supplies, etc. - so figure more like around 30 amps total instead.

If you try to connect devices that require more than 30 - 35 amps, the generator will probably have problems trying to supply this load for any longer that a short length of time. Additionally, motors like those in A/C compressors draw significantly more power when first starting and can cause the problem you are describing. Try running the generator with loads other then the A/C to see how well it can supply the load(s). Or try running only 1 A/C unit and other non-A/C loads.

What I'm trying to tell you is that you may need to do some active load management to be sure that you aren't trying to get more power out of the generator than it is capable of supplying. You may need additional generators or swap this one to a larger size to handle the load properly and safely.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Lost power supply and the box doesnt state the voltage or amp requirement.


The power supply is 12 Volt, the center pin is +. i'm currently using a 1 amp replacement power supply(as the origional one burned out years ago), so anything > 1 amp @12 volts will work

Power adapter of Avocent SwitchView® 1000


All power adapters usually have a label on the bottom of the adapter that show voltage and current for both the input and output connector, unless that label has been removed. Your KVM switch may have the voltage and current requirements printed on a label on the bottom of the device.

I lost my power supply cord when I moved. Where can I find another for a model USB 1930-52?


Hello,you can buy one AC to DC voltage converter (usually 1000mA) - which comes with multiple output tips and you manual setting the Volt that are required by your burner(check behind of your burner near the socket that you plug the power it should right ..Volt and the mA or AMP) and adjust the converter

Gtx+ shorts out powersupply


1.Power supply doesn't have enough Amps for the 12 volt voltage rail.

2.Power supply doesn't have the required power cables/connectors required.
You NEED TWO 6-pin PCI Express power cables.
If you use just one, you will burn up the connectors down in the PCI Express x16 slot, and the power cable connection on the GTX card, and/or fry the power supply.

3.Cheap power supply that came in a deal when buying a computer case. Cheap case? Cheap power supply.

Got flat screen as a gift


This monitor requires a power supply with a POSITIVE tip polarity.
Monitor requires 12 Volt DC @ 3.3 Amps output.
Make sure voltage is 12 Volts DC [absolute requirement]

Power Supply can have greater than 3.3 Amp capacity. More amp capacity increases price, so I wouldn't go for more than 5 Amps [minimum 3300 milliAmps, 5000 milliAmps will be more than adequate].

Put a surge protector on your computer and monitor to extend their life....better yet, a power conditioning battery backup system, that can supply constant voltage, to compensate line voltage when A/C, furnace, or other major appliance kicks on.

Plugs for Astra Scanner 1220U


Ran across your request for information about the cables needed for hooking up the Umax Astra 1220U scanner. The scanner require a standard older version USB cable that hooks the scanner to your PC. The second cable is the Power Supply Adapter cable. The information listed on the Power Supply Adapter is listed below. P/N 490081-03 Input 120 Volt @ 60 Hz 0.3 amps Output DC 12 Volts @ 1 Amp Model # RWP481212 You should be able to get the scanner to work as long as you can find any power supply that has the listed Input/Output ratings, an adapter that will plug into the scanner. Hope this help you. disaksen
