Power adapter for Astra 2100U

I'm unable to locate the power cable that came with the scanner. If a universal adapter can be used, what voltage, etc. should I use?

    Thanks for your help! Sounds like I should stick to commandeering my friend's scanner & dropping the files on a disc, huh? Well.... it was worth a shot! :o)

    Thanks again for your time & brain-power!

The Voltage and Current/Amperage draw should be printed on a tag on the scanner itself. The scanner isn't worth replacing the power supply in my opinion as you could probably replace the scanner for a little more than what a power supply will cost.

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).

Fujitsu scanner fi-6130. i have an error DS42019 asking to check power cable, etc. cannot find a solution. it is a scanner

This is a 6130 model scanner? For power problems, it is either going to be the power adapter or the control pca board that is inside the bottom of the scanner. Make sure you are using the correct power adapter. If you happen to have a volt meter, then check the output voltage of the adapter with the meter.

Need to find replacement padapter no. JoD-41U-02 for pro-2018. Can't locate one. Do you know where I can buy one.

The exact replacement power adapter for your scanner is out of production. Power requirement for the PRO-2018 is 12 volts with a minimum of 300 mA. Radio Shack has a universal power supply that will work, or you can pick one up on eBay for under $20, including shipment. You can also pick up a voltage-specific power adapter on eBay or elsewhere, but you may have to change the DC plug to match your scanner.

Power to Toshiba L25 s1196 laptop

make sure the output wattage and voltage of the universal matches the original, if not you can damage the PC. look on the actual inverters, they take AC wall voltage and Transform it to DC power, the specs will be listed. some universals have switches to adjust the voltage, etc.

What do you mean by adapter?
If it is main power adapter then a universal one will do -simply select the correct voltage.
The plugs that come with these are colour and size coded so the one that fits is the one to use simply select the correct voltage,as mark4d on the scanner.

Printer cable

If you use an universal power adapter, you must use one that can provide voltage of at least 30V (25V will work, but better using proper one).

Your 12V adaptor is not enough to power this printer. Buy the proper 31V power adapter.

The replacement costs $12 on Ebay (click).

Or $16 from retailer.
