I bought a deckcell universal laptop charger. The product I received, has a plug that does not fit into a standard wall outlet. The two prongs that come out of the plug have a unconventional shape and they do not fit into the wall outlet. Here is the information for the product MODEL ST-A-090-002U002AAT SKU AL-3140-6 ORDER NO 105-6073436-1373069 REF NO- 507984 DATE Shipped- 3/3/11 If this is the wrong plug, I will send it back.

If the prongs are shaped incorrectly then you might have a European model (or if you are in Europe then you might have an American Model). The AC adapter (the big block) should be rated for use in North America and Europe (input 100V - 240V) so you might just need to replace the plug half of the laptop charger. It might just be easier to contact the seller and ask them to send the correct plug for you AC Adapter.

Please rate if this helps.

P.S if you have any other appliance with a different prongs coming off the plug DO NOT PLUG IT IN!!! laptops chargers are ok because they are built to work in different voltages.

The wall plug does not fit in the wall socket, it has weird prongs


If the power plug prongs are not the same as what you normally have, (assuming the prongs were not messed up, i.e. they are from a foreign country) you can get and use an adapter ... that fits the "weird prongs" on one side and has the "normal" prongs on the other side ... to plug into the outlet.

I just bought a frigadaire affinity dryer. Well my plug is a standard plug. Is there any where I can find a plug to have it fight my outlet?


Dryers in the US come in 2 varieties.
A 3 prong and a 4 prong plug.
The 3 prong is older, the 4 prong newer. (The 4 has been made about 10 years)
A hardware store or an appliance store will sell both cords.
If you wish to order it online, you can buy one off of e-bay.
The cords can be switched back and forth from machine to machine.
To find out how, ask "fixya" after you buy the cord that fits your outlet. Be blessed.

Power does not on my laptop


This could be one of several reasons. The most common reasons that a laptop won't power up are a dead battery, or a non-functioning charging chord. My first step would be to plug the laptop into an outlet in the wall that I know for a fact works. If I am unfamiliar with that specific plug, I will plug something into that outlet that makes noise or light. Such as a lamp, stereo, or phone charger. After you have verified that the wall is giving electricity to the charging chord, the next step is to check the next step in the power chain. That would be where the chord from the wall plugs into the transformer box, that plugs into the laptop itself. So the first step is to check that the outlet that charges the laptop is receiving power. As a side not just because a top plug is getting power does not mean that a bottom plug is as well in my experience. After power received, next check connections. Those connections will include the transformer connection, and the laptop connection. Also you may wish to check for cut, loose, frayed, taped, kinked, or otherwise dangerous looking chords. I also do not recommend using third party Universal laptop chargers bought from the store. I only would use one of these in an emergency situation. I don't trust the power regulation. And on top of that a laptop charger chord is so much cheaper on-line if you buy from somewhere like e-bay. That charger will be laptop model specific. Generally a new charger is about $15-35 on e-bay, and a new battery could be as cheap as $50. Although I would also recommend finding out if your laptop is under warranty. If it is within a year old this is a good possibility. That route takes a lot of patience, but it is usually free.

Jassy 1103, will not start charging the battery.\r...


the 1103 uses an onboard charger. Charger's life span is about 3 years; some fail in 6 months, some in 6 years keep in mind. You can charge the 1103 using an offboard charger which are available for about $50.00 on Ebay. Search for electric wheelchair charger. You want one that has a 4 to 6 amp rating.

The offboard charger has a 3-prong connector on one end and the other plugs into a grounded wall outlet. Plug the charger into an outlet and the three prong connector into the female three prong connector located at the bottom front of the joystick. Give it a good overnight charge and it should be back up to snuff in the morning.

Computer recharger


Hi,

To my knowledge most current laptop AC adapter are designated/designed to be autovolt. This refers to the capability of the adapter to accept (without any problem) any voltage anywhere and still process it to a useful output that the laptop can use. This could be verified by looking over the sticker/nameplate of the adapter. If it says 1--~240VAC, then it is auto volt. The next area of concern would be the way the AC plugs are designed. US standards differs from European and for the AC adapter/charger to fit the European wall outlets, some sort of mechanical adapter is required. Most US AC plugs are parallel polarized flat prongs whereas Europeans would be small circular prongs.

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

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
