Question about Gateway FPD1810 18.1" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Can't get power cord

I got this monitor at a thrift store but it didn't have any kind of power cord. I have tried every power supply that says 12 volt but nothing will fit. We have also been told that other cords will work, but have not found one that will fit. I have tried calling Gateway but can't get help because it's not under warrenty. I have tried looking for replacement parts but can't find any that are even close

I assume this model comes with an external power supply- that is a package that plugs into the out let. you can buy at places like Wallmart a universal power supply, that has a variety of connectors and a switch to change the voltage. the connectors have a colour code and match the voltage slider which also has a colour patch. Take a look at the monitor to see if the operating voltage is mentioned- but is does not matter. what you do is take a connector- not plugged to the cord and fit it to the power inlet- you get several connector and only one will fit -the right one. Match the the colour to the voltage slide on the power pack and you are in business- well maybe - I bet first time it will not work That's OK simply unplug the connector from the cord and reverse the pins [reverse the polarity] come back

What type of power supply is required for this speaker system? If available, how much can I expect to spend for the power supply? I have the speakers but no power supply.

Check the power-connector on the speaker for the rating:
* AC versus DC
* 4.5 versus 5 versus 9 versus 12 versus 18 volts
* 0.5 versus 1.0 versus 1.5 amps
* pole-negative-ring-positive versus pole-positive-ring-negative

Try the local "Thrift Stores", once you have the specifications. You may get the correct suppy for less than $5.

Finding lost charge cords, connectors, & adapters for 1$

Thrift Stores usually have bins full of all kinds of cords; chargers, connectors, adapters-you name it-and only a dollar each! I've found everything from expensive, top-of- the-line USB to USB cords to the oddball power cord to my old waffle iron. No matter how old or how new, common or uncommon, digging through the bins at your local thrift store saves not only money, but time and effort as well.

Someone gave me an old Sylvania monitor (L15) Model no. PD-70FA but the 12V DC power cord is missing. It is not a standard type of powervcord and none of the stores I've been to (Staples, Office Depot,...

The power chord for this monitor is attached to a power adapter which converts mains voltage to 12 volts.
Check the power label on the monitor for the amp rating of the monitor and get an adapter that has an output of 12 volts and with the amp rating on the label or higher. Make sure the 0.3" power plug fits the monitor.

I need a power cord for a Scanport 1920S 19 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

It uses a "standard" power-cord.
Look in any "Thrift Store" or "Dollar Store",
or buy at any small "mom-and-pop" computer-store -- they probably have a box-full of them.

Don't pay more than $2.

I dont have a power cord for a monitor a friend gave me....what kind do i need? Model# 780 Product# E17Tr

99% of monitors use a "standard" PC power-cable, exactly the same as is between your computer's power-supply and the wall outlet.

Go to any "Thrift Store", and don't pay more than $1 for a power-cable.

Need one 12v 2500mah power cord for flat screen monitor xenon is the brand name and is prob kinda old cheap if possible

I had a similar problem. Here is what I did:

I went to the computer store and I did purchased a generic Laptop power supply that provides 13 Volts @ 2Ah. y display was working fine with it.

You may be able to take the display information (Voltage, amperage, connector size, positive and negative information) and get assistance from a computer store (maybe radio shack, circuit cit... oops, they closed stores, never mind that one. Best buy or any electronic store in your area).

If that doesn't work or you can't get a similar power supply, you can check in e-bay and get one similar like this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/12V-DC-Power-Supply-4-Amp-12-Volt-Adapter-LCD-CB-4A-HP_W0QQitemZ380155972539QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item58830fcbbb&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

but you need to be sure about the positive and negative connector.

Good luck.

Try the Gateway Tech support team or look on their site for accessories - they may well sell the power supply you need.
