Help with sourcing Power Supply for Printer

  Bagsey 08:30 07 Mar 2003

I was recently given a HP 660c printer for our school but I find that it needs a special transformer power supply. Can anyone suggest a source to obtain one. It obviously must be cheap as I could possibly buy a new printer at the price I was told that it would cost (If I could find One)Perhaps somone could suggest an alternative to the regular HP unit.

Internal power units are invariably of special design and not available other than from the manufacturer of the product (as you have found out) at a price comparable to a new printer (as you have also found out).

Don't hold too much hope out for getting a replacement.

I presume you are talking about an external power supply - a transformer on a lead effectively. I recently bought a similar item for an HP 690 and I agree the new cost can be high.

This site is a good one for HP printer parts and are very good click here however I bought mine in the end from an ebay auction for about £10, however they don't come up that often.

Thanks for the info. The site you sent me Bandy proved as I thought, it will be cheaper to by a new printer. I hoped that somone would know the voltage needed etc. so that I could adapt a different power supply but so far I have not been able to find this info.
Once again thanks.

I think, but haven't had chance to check, that the 669 uses the same power supply as the 690.

If that's the case its a 30 volt,400mA, 12 watt, supply.

On the 690 I'm using a C2177A supply

I'll confirm as soon as I can check the 660
