Will any 9V power supply work for my Sony D-36?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Got a Sony D-36 pcdp and it didn't have an AC adapter. Specs call for 9V. Will any 9V power supply work? I can't find the originals anywhere-(AC-E6M). Thanks.

Most 9V AC adapters will work provided you find one with a 300mA or higher rating and has a centre negative   File:Centre-negative.svg  polarity tip.

Looks like the standard polarity on 99% of the power supplies is center positive. Would this work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-PLUG-500mA-UNIVERSAL-AC-DC-ADAPTER-1-5V-3V-6V-9V-12V-4-5V-/380457774351?pt=Travel_Adapters_Converters&hash=item58950ced0f

Check the polarity symbol near the ac adapter tip on your D-36 to see what polarity it is. If the polarity symbol matches the one I've posted above, it will only accept a centre negative polarity adapter. It the symbol on

your D-36 is positive polarity Thumbnail for version as of 11:04, 30 November 2011 then you can use that adapter that you're looking at on Ebay. There's also 9V ac adapters that will allow you to switch polarities.

 

Edit: upon looking further in that Ebay auction you posted, you can use that adapter as it will allow you to switch between negative and positive polarities. Just make sure you have the right polarity set on the adapter before using it.

Thanks. Strange Sony uses that model when it seems like most others do not. I guess they wanted you to buy their power supply.
