Where can I buy a replacement ac adapter for my pvs 133 dvd player


Radio Shack sell universal AC adaptors. Just be sure that you select the correct voltage and that the polarity on the power plug is set correctly. Most AC adaptors will have the center of the plug as +, but not all. The Radio Shack universal unit allows you to switch the polarity of the plug by just changing how it's connected on the end of the wire. Incorrect settings could destroy your player.

Power cord/AC Adapter


Unless your have some technical background and a multimeter, you are risking at least the battery pack of your laptop and worst case, the laptop itself.
Most devices that accept an external adaptor are somewhat protected against applying the wrong polarity of voltage but that protection is primitive and depending on the 'universal' (this really should be 'multipurpose-not 'universal) adaptor used, the protection itself can fail, exposing the circuitry inside the laptop that controls the voltage from the adapter to damaging voltage; this would get much more expensive than replacing the original adapter from the manufacturer of the laptop.
You did not mention the brand/model of laptop you have and with only the adapter listed, we can't help you much.

I lost my battery charger thinghy ......... can I buy another one? Where?


The charger needs to be 9.5 volts DC,2-1/2 amps. The polarity(plus or minus) is shown on the side of the unit. (It is negative on the outside and Positive on the inside) DO not reverse the polarity or you will damage the device.

You can buy universal changeable chargers at places such as Radio SHack, Best Buy, ABC Warehouse, and other stores.

I lost the Adaptor for charger where I will buy it?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, most replacement AC adapters could be purchased from electronics, A/V shops/stores. All that is required is to state the secondary voltage requirement and the current rating which normally would be printed on the power specifications of your unit (rear or bottom). For your model something like 9VDC, 3.0Amps.

Alternately, pls try Wal-Mart for a universal adapter less than USD20. Being universal, it comes with different selectable voltages and plugs to match your requirement..

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I can't determine the polarity of my GPX PDL705 portable dvd


Hi,

I have uploaded the GPX PDL705 manual to this site today. If you check tomorrow they may have posted it by then.

If you look at the small print on the adaptor it should indicate by diagram Voltage output, current capacity, type and tip polarity by small diagram. Most adaptors are 'positive' -- but if you are unsure do not plug the adaptor into the device because it will fry it!

Where can I get a new charger, I lost mine


Hi,

You can try calling Target Customer Service 1.800.440.0680 and inquire cost & availability of the charger for the TruTech PVS12701.

Alternately, you can just look for an AC adapter/charger that has the following specs:
Input Voltage - your country's standard AC mains;
Output Voltage - 12VDC
Output Current - at least 1.5 Amp (the higher the better)
Connector - one that will fit and match the polarity of the TruTech PVS12701. (am guessing crown type center positive, pls confirm with the store. It may also help to bring along the unit when doing the purchase over the counter)

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
