If you need a replacement, you have two choices. Visioneer no longer makes this scanner, but they do offer replacement power adaptors. They run about $20 plus shipping. It may be quicker (and cheaper) to look on the scanner (maybe on the bottom or on the back, probably beside the power jack) or on the current adaptor itself and see what the power rating is. It will say something like "6 VDC, 1A" or "5.5 VDC, 3-5A". These are the two power ratings you need. VDC is the DC voltage, and A is the amperage. You can take the power adaptor to a local Radio Shack or similar electronics shop, and they'll help you with an appropriate adaptor. You may also be able to find an appropriate adaptor at a large electronics store (like Best Buy) or a large discount store like Wal-Mart or Target. Just go to the electronics section.
A small speciality shop will probably take the adaptor and give you the choice of one or two that will work. In a larger store, you may not get as much help, so you just want to match both power numbers on the package, then make sure the plugs on the end of the power cords match, so the new one will fit your scanner (universal adaptors often include several tips that can be put on the end of the power cord; just make sure one of them is the same size and shape as yours).
