BogMonster Posted October 11, 2007 Share Posted October 11, 2007 Apologies - entirely OT but I wonder if anybody has any suggestions. I have a HP Photosmart 8250 photo printer, predictably just over a year old so out of warranty, and I think the power supply is u/s, it is supposed to produce 32V DC at 2.5 amps and it wobbles around 9 volts when you first plug it in and then the light on the cord goes dim and then off completely when it is plugged into the printer. Any ideas where I could get a cheap 32V power supply that might do the job? The printer has only done about 50 pages and is exactly what I want so I don't want to throw £150 odd quids worth of printer and the spare ink I have away if I can solve the problem easily. The power supply has a funny 3 pin plug on it but nothing that 5 min with a pair of snippers and a crimping tool couldn't solve all I need is something that can suck in 240V 50HZ AC and spit out 32V and at least 2.5 amps DC. any ideas? going to ask around and see if I can find a 2/hand one looking for a home but not that hopeful as I didn't buy the printer here, it came from a Comet store in Sussex... having said that there might be other HP printers that use the same voltage.
