lol, "I don't read this thread"

Also, thanks, this worked perfectly!
Weird how we had the same issue in such a tight time period.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Weird question/request. Somehow I've lost the power adapter for my scanner—makes no sense, yet it's gone—so I need to buy a new one. My problem is that I can't find an exact match for what the manual says I need—DC 24V, 0.75A. An eBay auction lists this:
Type: AC to DC Standard
Input: AC 100V - 240V 50-60Hz
Input Connecter standard: 2 or 3 Pin US Plug
DC Output: DC
Connector Size: Barrel Tip

Can anyone point me to an adapter that'll fit what I need?

edit: Never mind. Apparently posting my request was a sufficient offering to the gods, who revealed the existence of a working adapter in a box of junk.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

Cool because there isnt enough info in what you provided.

That was my fear. I found adapters that plugged in properly but didn't power it up. Annoying as fuck.

There is no standardization in this area, different manufacturers use different connectors so even if your voltage and amp out put was correct you could still have a plug mismatch. You can buy ones that come with an adjustable voltage output and a variety of tips that you can use.

Just tried scanning and it doesn't work. I have no idea if it's a power issue—enough juice to power up but not enough to scan?—or the scanner is broken. So, fuck.
