Hello , my name is JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem but first could yu please give me the model number of the unit that this is to be used with ?
Sorry but even harder to find
I`m afraid i will have to opt out now.
You don`t have to do anything , your question will be reposted for other techs. to see and jump in.
Well i actually thought of suggesting such because the specs are here .
So if you don`t mind doing a bit of work on this then i will be happy to help you with that
Could you explain those 2 pairs ?
You have 2 leads coming out of the adaptor beside the ac cord ?
Or do you mean 2 wires instead of 2 pairs ?
O.k and the original teac adapter , is it completely dead ?
Are you testing in AC or DC and by the way , the gauge (AWG) is not critical here to the point that it would work versus not working at all so the problem is definitely not there
That 18 AWG you are talking about anyway would be the AC cord ?
Remember the output is AC and it should be 12 volts so if you have that requirement with the other ac adapter you bought then the problem is not there .
Test for 12 volts ac while things are connected (loaded)
That is test the output of that adapter for 12 volts ac
When you say that the adapter you bought exceed the original specs , can you give me its specs ?
sorry but will step out for a bit , its been over 1/2 hour since your last reply
