Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Got a Marlboro Power Pak at a yard sale. He said it was never used but it did not come with an AC power cord to charge it. I plugged in what came with it to my cigerette lighter and it did not charge. Does anyone know what is supposed to come with one and where I can get parts & instruction manual? Thanks

Charging via your cigarete lighter would be VERY SLOW, especially if the device has sat aaround and discharged.

If it has a place to plug in AC, often one can find cords at thrift stores that will fit the connector.

Some of these used wall transformer units supplying 13 or 14 volts to charge.

The battery may be so far down it may damage the charger.

    I got one of those at a yard sale also and it did not work. I just took it to a battery store and got a new battery and it has been working perfect ever since. If it is not used, I try to recharge it every 2 to 3 months to keep the battery alive. The replacement battery cost about $35.00.

    If it was never used, then that thing might have been sitting around for a long time, then the battery might need to be replaced. Also, you might be able to find an A/C charge that fits it at a thrift store, I had to do the same. It needs between a 12 to 14 volt charger or it can be charged through the cigarette lighter if you got the connectors with it for that.

I recently got a TCO'03 Display at a yard sale..it has a power cord but where do i plug in into my computer?


You don't plug the power cord into the computer. You plug the power cord into an AC outlet. You need a VGA cord for connecting the monitor to the computer. Walmart, K-Mart, Radio Shack, Staples, OfficeMax, and any of many other stores should have the cable.

The light wont even turn on when i try to turn mine on, it hasnt been turned on in a while so i yeh , does anyone knoe what i should do ??


  1. Make sure you are using a licensed AC Adapter (the system's power cord). The name Nintendo should be molded into the actual AC Adapter unit. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly. Also ensure all accessories connected to your system are licensed as well. (Expansion Pak, Controllers, Rumble Pak and Controller Pak.)
  2. Make sure you are not using any game enhancing devices. Such devices are unlicensed and are not recommended by Nintendo, as they may not let your system function properly.
  3. Firmly plug the AC Adapter into the AC Power Supply port on the back of the Control Deck and firmly plug the AC Adapter into the wall outlet.
  4. Make sure your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
  5. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
  6. If it still does not work, you'll need to RESET the AC Adapter. To do this, remove all the accessories (including the Game Pak and all controllers) from the deck. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet for at least 30 seconds, then plug it back in. If your system works without the Game Pak and controllers plugged in, there may be something defective with either the Game Pak or one of the accessories. Turn the power off and plug ONE accessory into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time to see if you can figure out which accessory may be in need of repair.
If these steps do not resolve the symptoms you are experiencing with your system, your system may need to be replaced. For more information on what options are available, please click here.

I just got a Marlboro Power Pack too and have not idea how to charge it. It came with a corn with a cigarette lighter plug at one end and a negative and positive plug at the other end. what does this...


The pac will have a door on both sides that hide the cables you hook to a battery to help jump start a car once it is charged up. The cord that you say has a cig plug on one end is used to charge it using your car plug. There is another door on the back of the Pac that holds all the accessories, extra fuses and the charging cords. It does not sound like you have the A/C adaptor to plug it into a wall outlet.. If this unit is old the internal battery may be bad these Pac's are notorious for battery failure. You can find these batterys on eBay for about $13.

I picked up this monitor at a yard sale it says dc input?? is this the power supply? how do i hook up a ac cord?


If it says DC input and there are no other socket which has three prongs(this is for the AC input), all you need is an adapter, which you will plug to a wall socket and the other end would be plugged to the flat panel, it works like a transformer, just like any power supply, like for laptops, just try to find the correct voltage, 12v,16v or whatever is needed by the panel. Often you can find the voltage require on the panel itself, reading as POWER INPUT, xx volts or Power requirement.

I need to know how to charge a marlboro power pak in detail


There are two different ways. You can use either an AC outlet in your home, or a DC outlet in your car (cigarette lighter). Your battery may be dead inside the unit, as these particular power packs are notorious for battery failure. I've had to put two in mine since I've owned it. You can get them on eBay for about $13.
