Get a new hand controller cable. They fail regularly. If it still does not work then it is a problem with the hand controller or the internal circuit board.

If after you replace the cable it still does not light up-- borrow a hand controller and see if it works with a different controller. Beyond that you must return the scope to Celestron for repair.

Input is 240V-50Hz 250mA Output 12V-2.9A. The current adaptor is listed as Inspire M5300. It is for a Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 speaker system


In electronics, don't believe, be sure. When it does not say AC, see what is next to it. The ~ sign means AC. The = sign means DC. I know lots of speaker systems use AC, but check the sign.

Where can I find a replacement 120v ac adaptor for a Thor X flashlight?


My Thor X 10 million candlepower spotlight takes a standard 12 volt, 1500 mA, center positive AC adaptor. You should be able to find one with an appropriate tip at any Radio Shack store, but you may find a cheaper universal adaptor at a Walmart or even at a "Dollar Plus" kind of store. An adaptor with a lower mA rating will take longer to charge your light, but it should still work (down to about 750-800 mA, I'm guessing).

Double-check the charging port of your Thor light to see whether there's any information about the input voltage requirements. On mine, the light itself has the charging port labeled for 12v, though I was reading the more detailed specifications off the adaptor itself. I can't recall whether the 2.5 million candlepower light also uses 12 volts of power (I think it does), or whether it takes 6 volts (a single battery vs. two batteries wired in series).

Batteries


I think you will find that one 9 volt battery would not last any time at all. the 6 AAs have a big capacity and that's why they use them, a little 9v battery is intended for low power equipment.
I see it is supplied with a 12v AC adaptor, if you connect a 12V battery via the adaptor socket you may get a longer run time if its a rechargable battery even better.

Ac adaptor on my 32 Protron inch LCD TV no longer work


What is the current output of the adaptor? If it is AC and you use only the 12v to 3v it is ok. But if the current output of the adaptor is DC and you use both 24v to 6v and 12v to 3v there is some danger if use the new one. Remember that DC current have polarity.

Lightning strike ac adaptor is fried


Your phone did expirence a surge that probably blew the ac adaptor which happens most of the time, u can buy one of those universal adaptors and look on the back of the old adaptor for the output voltage it will usually read between 3 and 8 volts DC.Set the universal adAptor voltage to the setting right below the voltage output on the back of the ac adaptor.

I recommend bringing this laptop into Best Buy for repair. This has several hardware related issues from what you've described. If the repair quote is any more then $200 (which i anticipate it will be) I would consider investing in a new laptop and not throw good money after bad.

Thanks
