I hae a Casio/Phonemate Work & Talk Speaker Phone Answering Machine, Model DC 11V, TA120 350mA.
A short occured and I need to purchase a new transformer/AC adapter. Radio Shack doesn't carry an 11V.
Can anyone tell me where I can purchase one?

Re: Need a new part
Radio Shack's universal (9V-13V, Model 273-1631) adapter should work fine for you. You can try setting it to the 10.2V setting, and if that doesn't work for you, you can try the 12V setting.
Given that wall current can easily fluctuate 10% or more, the 1V difference is unlikely to matter.
Make sure you get the polarity of the Adaptaplug correct -- inverting the voltage could actually damage your answering machine!

1. Remove the AC adapter plug from the back of the base unit (not from the wall); leave tel cord connected.
2. While holding down the "set code" button under the cassette lid, plug the ac adapter back into the base. The screen will then display some numbers (110) etc.
3. Hold down the HANDSET keys 1 and 2 simultaneously and then press the speaker button on top within 20 seconds.
4. Press any 3 digits on the handset i.e. 1-2-3.
5. After hearing a BEEP from the handset and base, press 2 on the handset. The base should then say "twenty-five", and the handsets will beep, confirming the new security code is enabled. Press talk or speaker on handset to confirm communication.
6. The time/day stamp and remote access code will be cleared.
7. Best to do this with the answering mach turned off.
8. Restart this procedure if anything goes wrong (may hear a series of error beeps).
I saved my manual and in it I had a fax Casio sent me with these instructions (i had this prob a few times years ago). Good luck!
