If you try using a three prong plug in this you don't get the security of having the item grounded. Having the ground plug helps with situations like a lightning strike, etc. You would be using at your own risk.

Your question was worded poorly and it's difficult to understand what you are asking. As a guess, if you are looking for a 30-amp adaptor cord set, perhpas this will work:

If it's a 3-prong adaptor:
Camco 55333 30 AMP 3 Prong Generator Adapter

Or a 15 to 20 adaptor:

HI there! I am using a targus universal wall power adaptor for laptops, it has an output of 19.5 V and 90 W. I was wondering if I could use this to charge my UK laptop from ADVENT. The charger for this has...


The wattage is to different, the wattage for the adapter is 90watts, and the charge for the advent is only 65w.

You can always try it, but you risk damaging your battery, or motherboard.

We have s6000 generator and a 38 foot camper that runs on 30amp. Do we need to buy and adaptor and can we use the 30 amp plug on the generator. And do we use the 4 prong or three prong


You will probably have to buy an adaptor. Read the owners manual for the generator, the 4 prong should only be for 240V. The 3 prong should be 120V. But READ the owners manual. If it is this way you should be able to get an adaptor at your local hardware/electrical supplier or any RV store.

I am getting a lot of distortion feedback when I connect my computer to the mixer but the feedback only starts when the computer is connected to an electrical outlet. I have plugged the computer to a...


Sounds like a ground problem. Try to hook a ground strap or wire from the case of the computers power supply to the ground of the mixer. If it still has noise, try to touch the ground to the bracket of the computers sound card. Most likely, the computer uses a three prong adaptor and the mixer does not. Outlet grounds have voltages which bleed off from motors and other devices, which could cause the 60hz noise. If your mixer has a three prong plug do not plug your computer and mixer in separate outlets with separate grounds or you could fry your system. If you still have problems use a three to two prong adaptor and attach an isolated ground wire on the adaptor for the computer.

Gets dark wave in three waves,


The first thing I would suspect is a noisy AC supply. Try using a ground adaptor. Sounds technical, but if you every went to Grandpa's he may have been using a few and you just didn't know what they were. They are commonly used to adapt a 3 prong electrical plug to a 2 prong AC outlet. If your TV does have a 3 prong AC cord, give this a try before you do anything. It's a cheap solution and often works like a charm.

Trying to hook a 3 prong hook up with 4 prong cord how do i do it?


A 3 prong plug is for 240 volt (hot-hot-ground) the 4 prong plug is for 120/240 volt (hot-hot-neutral-ground). If your device requires a 4 prong plug, it is not a good idea to connect it to a 3 prong circuit (you will create a possible lethal electrical condition). If your device requires a 3 prong connection, a 4 prong cord can be used by not connecting the neutral (white wire). If you have any questions, let me know.

Lack of Power


1) Battery can be derect.
2) Power adapter can be defect.
3) Power jack can be defedt.
In about 50% of such cases it is the power jack.
Bring it to a repair shop. They can check very easily the battery and the adapter to find out the problem.

Wall plug is 3 prong, dryer is 4 prong...is there an adaptor available?


The following link explains the wiring scheme for 3 and 4 prong power cords. I know the instructions are for converting from a 3 to a 4 prong, but if you look under the "Additional Notes" section it explains how to convert back to a 3-prong if you are currently using a 4-prong.

I hope this helps you. If you have any questions, please let me know.
