Hello,

Neither company sells this specific adapter but Radio Shack/The Source may have universal adapters. My advice however would be not to replace the adapter as universals are not 100% reliable and cost about the same amount as replacing the entire enclosure. Simply pop into Radio shack or any PC shop and ask the technicians to swap your drive into a new enclosure, they range from about $20 to about $50 but most of the $20 ones will have everything you need.

Once the drive is in the new enclosure you can use the new AC adapter that came with it and you're back in business.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

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

I don't have either cord to charge or use the light. What kind of charger cord and what kind of other cord (12 volts ?) do I need to use the light?


Black and Decker's website has downloadable OEM manual which gives part numbers to replace power adapter, also sold at Radio Shacks or RV places like Boat and RV which can be Googled. Best Buy also sells AC/DC relacement multi voltage universal adapters which are about $12.00 - $20.00. Hope this helps ! Matthew

What size power adapter do I need


According to several sites, the power supply is 12V, positive tip. You can find this at Radio Shack or your favorite electronic surplus store. You should take the Maxtor with you so you are sure the power connector fits.
Alternatively, you can check with a Maxtor vendor for the part.

Online: www.eBay.com

Any "big box" store: Office Depot, Radio Shack, Circuit City, Staples, Future Shop, Best Buy, Walmart, or even at some "Nothing Over A Dollar Stores" or maybe at a local "Thrift Store" or "Value Village".

Or, online, through the manufacturer's web-site: www.maxtor.com

Where can I get replacement parts for my D1708ES DVD player. I need a new 12V DC power source adapterand a new AV Adapter cable )one to three Female)


I'm sure Radio Shack can help you out in finding an adequate replacement otherwise there are many online stores that can sell you parts cheaper if you have the part numbers. Just do a simple search on google. Radio shack or any electronics store would probably the easier option. let me know if you need any thing else

my best to you
