You will want a 12v 2A DC adapter and you will need to get the end fitted (RadioShack can do this for you).

Where I went they only had a 1.5A adapter and it does work, but it sometimes "clicks" a few times before starting up. It's probably bad for the drive so I highly recommend getting a 2A adapter if you can.

There seems to be no power to our shredder.

Beverly, the power supply for shredder is probably bad. If it has a external power supply, take old power supply with you to a electronics shop and have them match it up for you, with a universal power supply.

Notebook woks on battery but does not on power supply

Hello. It sounds like either...

1. Your Asus power adapter is damaged/not working. Look and see if a LED is illuminating on the power adapter. If it is chances are it is working fine and the problem may lie on your laptop. If not replace it. The easiest way to tell if your power adapter is bad is to go out to Wal-Mart or your local technology store and purchase one of their universal power adapters. They are expensive but you can buy it, try it, and return it if it does not solve the problem.

OR

2. The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50

I have a alesis dm5 drum module. I have lost the power supply so I bought a universal power supply buti dont want to harm the system. How do i set the power supply up?

NEVER use a universal wall wart supply... it is too easy for the settings to be changed and blow the unit.

It appears that the correct power adapter supplies 9 volts AC at 1 amp (1000 ma)

Most universal adapters supply DC rather than AC.

There are sellers on eBay selling the correct adapters.

The ac power adapter type cannot be determined,your system will operate slower and the bettery will not charge. please connect a dell 65w AC adapter or Higher for best system operation.

Dell power supplies use 3 wires. One detects the power supply. If you are using a Dell supply then that wire is broken inside the cord or at the connection. If this a universal power supply it only has 2 wires.

Acer laptop Aspire 7000 does not power on

If the laptop does not power up (not a slight sign of power flowing through it) even if the AC adapter is plugged into it, here are the possibilities:

1. You AC adapter might be broken and need to be replaced. Some AC adapters have a light on it to signify that there's power flowing from the power outlet to the power cable.

2. If your AC adapter is working fine, maybe your power supply is broken. If your laptop is with in warranty, have Acer replace it. If not, find a repair center who does.

I have a western digital elements external hard drive and my power cable has broken and i cant seem to find replacement parts anywhere

The power cable you are talking about--is the cable itself broken? Do you mean the wires are cut?
It requires an AC adapter. If you take it to an electronics store, there is a good chance they can come up with an adapter that will work. There are a bunch of universal adapters out there. All you have to do is make sure the voltage/amperage is the same and the plug fitsl
I suppose you could ask Western Digital for a replacement, but that might be expensive.

Power supply doesn't seem to supply power to Gateway labtop

Well its likely that you could have damaged the power cord. If one of the internal wires got yanked when your foot caught the cord it could have lost it's connection. Try going to an electronics store and asking if they have any universal adapters, look on the back and see if your laptop model is supported. Try it and see if it works, if not return the cord and the problem will be with the female plug in the back of the laptop. Like you said its probably not the laptop

Hope this helps, please comment back if you have any further questions or information about the problem. Feel free to leave positive feedback if this helps, thanks for stopping by at Fixya!
