Does anyone know where I can get a power cable / adapter for an Epson 1660 Scanner I have been given.

It is a USB scanner it gets power from the USB port on the PC it is connected to but remember to install drivers for it before you connect it

Try another suitable power cable.

Check that other electronic devices connected to same power socket have power and try another mains socket and another power cable if necessary. Failing this try another suitable and known-working power cable. Depending on your scanner, a standard "kettle lead" or "figure of eight" power cable is used. If there is power to the scanner (indicated by an illuminated Start light), when a different power cable is used, then the fault is with the original power cable.

If the unit does not power on after following the checks above, contact Epson for support. If your scanner uses an AC adaptor, then this may need to be replaced. If your scanner is over 12 months old, you can purchase a replacement AC adaptor directly from Epson.

I've got an Epson 1660 and it isn't powered by USB.

I've just crawled under my desk and it requires an Epson AC Adaptor Model A171E.

The output would appear to 24v DC 0.8A.

This is what you want click here. However a Google search hasn't found any UK sources yet. Perhaps this why you were given it!

The closest I can find but would it fit and work? click here
