Topic: Power cord questions
I have a few power supplies here, all invariably work fine with I8 units.
I have a couple of I3.5 units that I need power supplies for.
If I unplug the power supply from a working I3.5 and plug that in, the other I3.5s all work OK.
I tried the ones on hand, and they are very tight. I can jamb the plug in the back but it doesn't connect somehow, unless I push the plug in a downward direction while plugged in. Then it makes connection and the I 3.5 goes on. If I release it, it goes off.
So it's not a chumby problem, it's a power supply plug problem. And heck, for as small as all this is this seems quite critical.
So I am trying to understand the problem here.
It seems tight, so I assume the outside of the barrel connector works.
I can't imagine what would make the center pin not connect properly.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
I could order the proper plug from Digikey, CP-017-ND.
Or order the adapter the forum member makes, in which case I would have to get different power supplies.
But heck, it seems I am so close here.
