Question about Power Computers & Internet

Open Question

The power adaptor of an old SimpleTouch SimpleDrive ext. HDD USB2 died. Its output specs say 12V, 1.5A, 18W max. I found an old one that says 12V, 1.2A, 14.4VA Max and it worked. Can I keep using it

The HDD was working fine for several minutes: what am I missing in terms of performances if I use this power adaptor regularly?

As I search the internet I found out no replacement for this kind of the adaptor model number 090-02180-13, there are some people looking for this kind of adaptor is a faulty a pervasive problem with the TV. There are literally hundreds of complaints on the internet. Most deal with a faulty AC Adaptor and the inability of the company to provide a replacement part.
I have a solution for this adaptor problem we better improvised the parts inside. The faulty parts of this adaptor arise in the transformer. This transformer is easily to burnt because of lower amperage. So we make it higher amperage so it can resist the load heat and cannot burnt easily.
Maybe you can do this for yourself, open the adaptor case, when open already look for the transformer, the visual picture of transformer is a bulky metal with many windings. Take this out and bring it to electronic shop that know how to rewind a transformer. Tell them to reworks or rewind the transformer, only the output voltage will be change input is the same. This is the

NEW SPECIFICATION:

  • INPUT 100-240 V
  • OUTPUT + 24VOLT DC AT 12 AMP
  • 12VOLT AT 6 AMP.
This is the result of new specification when the reworks or rewind is finish ,put it back to the adapter box,and then you can use it.This is higher amperage I mean it to you before,it can resist overheating.If ever happens that you can't find in your place know how to do reworks of the transformer here in philippines i do the rewind or reworks of the transformer ,but the problem is.very far to your place it needs shipment to carry this out .I price you 120 dollars including shipment and i assure it to you that adaptor will last long because of higher amperage .
When i search i found a site that can make an ac adaptor only you give the new specification and give where you are using the adaptor give the brand name PLTV-32 and they will make it..try this option also ..LCDPAYLESS.COM

SOURCE: Pioneer 12v car amp rated at 1200 watts max requires ? amp fuse

Hi I would suggest 40A (i know guys will disagree) but you shouldnt be running at full 50A. Fuse are often rate at 50% - 75% of the actual consumption. By the way, 8 guage @40A will give you about a 2% drop at 5 feet. Maybe consider heavier for 40A?? Just a suggestion

Lost power cord


I believe that you would be ok. Voltage has to be "Spot on." Amperage, however, needs to "meet or exceed." Think of Voltage as pushing something into something. Think of Amperage as pulling something out of something. It won't draw more amps than it needs, even if they are available. Allow me to thank you for including the powerpayless website as until your post I didn't know what voltage I was looking for. Exactly the same thing happened to me with my SimpleTech 1TB. Perhaps we both solved eachother's problems. PS: I'm going to check with Radio Shack for a 12v adaptor with at least 3.5 Amp capacity. They might can beat the $30.00 which is what the above mentioned place gets including shipping.

Ac adaptor on my 32 Protron inch LCD TV no longer work


What is the current output of the adaptor? If it is AC and you use only the 12v to 3v it is ok. But if the current output of the adaptor is DC and you use both 24v to 6v and 12v to 3v there is some danger if use the new one. Remember that DC current have polarity.
