    I know the voltage current etc - what I really need to know is the polarity - is the centre pin positive or negative? It's a 50/50 chance of kapowee, Goodnight Sooty.

Just bought an aditional DC-supply because I'm miles away from the original.

I can confirme that center pin is positive voltage.

Assuming you are in the U.S. you can buy the power supply directly from WD

Here is the link...

Surprisingly it is not that expensive $9.99 plus P&P

If you are not in the US, you should be able to buy a convertorvto suit your wall socket.

Hope This helps

Batteries wear out very fast, I need a 6V transformer


You can use any power supply with the following requirments:
output 6vdc, 400ma, plug 5.5mm x 2.1 mm with negative center.
You can buy one from your local market or from this link. In the last case you will get some various connectors and you have to check for the one that is better fixing. Also beware the polarity of this connector, the negative point HAS to feed in the center of the connector.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Buying a used Tascam 788. P.O. lost the power supply. How can I get a replacement? Couldn't find anything on TASCAM site.


Hi, Provided there is a tag on the back showing the units model number, on that same tag should be the power requirements for it-buying a universal power supply, or even a used working one to another piece of equipment is acceptable as long as the polarity is the same. Polarity is located right next to where the power supply plugs into the unit. It will be a " circle with a dash inside it with a line connecting to a C looking symbol with a line coming out of it connecting another circle with a plus sign inside. " that is a typical outer ground/inner positive marking. a power supply will be marked the same. If they match the polarities are the same. Next make sure the power supply says the proper DC voltage and Milliamps or amps-Ma/A example: 2400Ma, 2.4a. I hope this helps and thank you for asking FixYa, good luck and don't forget to write back and let me know how I did, Prodzilla.

I lost my GE Ultrasonic 2.1 Speaker power adapter and i need need ones but i dont know what to buy, the voltage it requires..6 or 9 volts?


at most electrical stores you can buy a universal power adaptors with a selection of socents to fit most connections. and which has a selector on it for various voltages settings.
take one of the little connectors and see which one fits. then checking the polarity on your device set the polarity the same when plugging the connector into the power supply cable. adjust voltage as needed.

Warning: when connecting a variable power adaptor alway connect on the lowest voltage setting and work up as too high voltage can distroy your appliance.

BEFSR41 power supply?


Both the voltage and the polarity should be printed on the case of the router. The polarity should be right next to where the power plugs in.

The polarity information will look something like this:
--(-(+))--

If you take the router into a local Radio Shack, the clerk will probably be able to tell you which power supply you need.
