Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Lost the power adaptor for my Lumisource Boomchair SVC. Does anybody have one of these gaming chairs that can tell me what their power supply housing says on it? Maybe take a picture of yours and post it for me. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
No need to worry about positive or negative - it's 12 V AC, 2.5 A. If you unscrew the 6 screws in the plate with all the connectors on it, and gently pry it out, you'll see that the black cord with the power connector on it just connects to two wires, one yellow and one white, that run down inside to the power amp board. You can just disconnect the black cord, and wire in whatever cord works with the power adapter you find, or just cut the power connector off of the black cord, and replace that with the appropriate jack that fits the adapter you find.. You can use a DC power supply of at least 14 V at 3 A - but don't go much over 16V. A lot of laptop power bricks will do this, and they readily available. Since the wires go to a bridge rectifier, it doesn't matter which wire you connect + or - to.
Digi-Key part number HM1577-ND is available for immediate shipment at $20.57. It's a plug-in wall transformer with two screw terminals. 12v AC, 2.5A 40W.
Made by Hammond - a high-quality part. This would get you up and running in 10 minutes or less.

I need one too. I found the owners manual on-line and it says the AC/DC Adapter we need is 12volts and 2500ma (2.5amp). I wrote to the company to see if one is available. If not, I may just try to find one that matches the voltage and amperage, cut off that odd male end and wire it directly. the only issue will be finding the positive and negative.

I FOUND THE SOLUTION. Take a power brick from an Xbox 360 slim and cut and strip the ends of both the cables on the chair and the small cable on the power brick and solder the black and red wires to the corresponding wires on the chair. There will be two wires left over on the brick a green and a white one you will have to solder in a switch to these wires to turn the brick on so it will put out the full 12 volts that the chair needs.

I lost mine the same month I got it as a kid, having this answered would help me too, since its merely a floor chair and none of the electronics are useful since I don't have any idea what kind of adapter I aught to search for as a replacement. The online manual isnt helpful, so if anyone can figure out what in the world type of hookup the receptacle cord is, then i can begin trying to figure out what type of 12v adapter I need to find. The receptacle cord has a chamfered bar prong and a tiny tubular prong, and I haven't the slightest clue what kind of power supply block accepts those shapes.
