I have a very old Maxtor external 200 GB hard drive. I can not find the power adapter for it. On the label, a part of it rads 12V 2A - does that's mean I need to look for a 12 volt, 2 amp power adapter?


Depending on the power adapter, you might be able to pickup one at Radio Shack..
If it is a single pin plug, check near the power adapter jack to see if it shows you polarity of the
center pin, which will either be "+" or "-" Take this information to your local Radio Shack along
with the voltage and amperage requirements

What external power does SmartDisk FireLite FWFL120-N take?


Many USB power supplies will have the right plug. I picked one up by buying a cheap USB hub, What you want to look for (most likely on the bottom of the power supply) is VOLTAGE Output: 5.0 VDC, POWER Output: 1.0 amp or (1000ma) and the center hole is the positive side. I have even seen some BluTooth earpiece charges that supply what you need.

Hope that this will help.

What kind of external power supply does the media speaker needs?


Juster-Avia 3D-107 Media speakers.

I wanted to know what kind of external power supply it needed. I open the case and saw 4 diodes which tells me is a bridge rectifier circuit. I also looked at the filter cap and saw ????uF at 28 volts. Therefor, I did the Scientific Wild *** Guess( A.K.A. SWAG METHOD)
12 volts AC out at 1.6 amps or higher.

Radio Panasonic RF-4900 - no power


Just spent the afternoon with an RF4900 with a power problem. The set was intermittent. Found on the back of the set where the ac plugs in, there is a switch that is ingaged when the ac plugs into the set. If the ac cord is old it might not be engaging this switch when the cord is plugged into the set. The switch controls ether battery power or ac power.

Voltage/polarity of power supply for NEC pcmcia 4 port USB2 card


If you KNOW it is 5 volts then you only need to make sure that the amp is higher and never lower. Higher amp only means it can work without getting too hot. But the VOLTS MUST BE precise. For polarity it is MOST common to have the center pin PLUS and outer NEG/GND. When I fix laptops and put the powercord wrong nothing happens. When I get it right then lights go on on PC.
