Quote from: Sykobee (Briggsy) on 13:38, 28 September 16Hi,I have a GX4000 and am getting a C4CPC.I have a Megadrive-compatible PSU - 9V 1.5A + outside. Will this be fine or is the amperage too high?(Oddly enough my Atari 2600 PSU is 9V 500mA + inside - so clearly that cannot work!)
Quote from: ukmarkh on 16:26, 14 September 17I purchased an RS 9V dc, 1 Output, 2.1 x 5.5 x 9.5 mm Centre Positive Switched Mode Power Supply, Plug In Power Supply, 1.22A, but unfortunately this doesn't want to power my GX4000, with or without my C4CPC inserted. The GX4000 powers fine from my Amstrad Plus monitor, has anyone experienced this as the above was actually recommended from the Wiki. I suppose it could be a faulty adapter, but just wanted to confirm as I bought it a few months back and have only just got around to trying it out.
Quote from: gerald on 22:26, 14 September 17Can you check that the PSU is working fine : multimeter or some other device powered with 9V ?It can also be that the internal 5V voltage regulator of your GX4000 is dead and luckily does not let the 9V pass through.That can also be checked with a multimeter :- open the GX4000 to access the power switch (which is doing the switch after the regulator).- plug the 9V supply (checked working) on the 9V power input and check that you have 5V on one of the 2 pins of the power switch.

Quote from: gerald on 19:10, 19 October 18You mean 2.1mm tip
Quote from: tjohnson on 20:56, 19 October 18I thought the 5v hole was smaller than the 11v hole?
Quote from: tjohnson on 10:04, 31 October 18Is there really no 9v psu available in the US ? Seems extreme buying a UK psu.
