Topic: Can I Bypass a proprietary DC Adapter Tip? (Read 811 times) previous topic - next topic

One other question. I do have a PSP power adapter and the tip fits in the CD player. However the PSP adapter says it outputs 5v. Is the difference between 4.5v and 5v enough to do serious damage to the player if I plug the PSP adapter in briefly to see if it will at least power on?

Thanks for the help thus far

Have you looked on the player to see if there's a sticker giving the power requirements?

There is a sticker on the bottom that says DC 4.5v External DC Supply, Battery Supply 1.5vx2 R6 Size AA or Equivalent

Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)

Hmmmm, back when I was at school, 1.5 x 2 was 3....  8) .... assume that's a typo.

.... usually those stickers show the external supply polarity
