Replacement Power Supply

If you are looking to dump the printer and use a newer power supply you can use this one from Jameco (RQ-50B). I have made a number of them so far. It is very easy to do if you are willing to sacrifice the power cable from the printer (click here for a video on making your own cable). Just cut the two cables off the printer and then wire them up according to the photo on the left. I use a power strip for the on and off switch.

  1. You don’t necessarily need to sacrifice the power cable from the printer. I used the cord from an old joystick. It works equally as well. For the power cord from the supply to your wall outlet, I used a spare PC power cable, cutting the end off that goes to the PC and wiring it to the power supply.

    The important thing is that you WIRE IT CORRECTLY!!!
