    Default Source for power supplies?

    Anyone know of a source for replacement power supplies - besides Ebay?

    I currently am in need of the following (some multiple units):

    Sega Genesis
    Sega Master System
    Sega Saturn
    Sega Dreamcast
    Super Nintendo
    Commodore 64
    Colecovision
    T/I 99-4a
    TurboGrafx-16
    Atari Jaguar
    Atari XE
    Atari 2600 Jr
    Magnavox Odyssey 2
    Magnavox Odyssey 2000/5000, etc.
    Misc. pong / old school machines

    I got all this as a lot, and none of them had power supplies...

    Thanks!

    Radioshack has almost every power supply there is. Just get the correct mA and correct tip. If you need help on power tips or what they look like just email or pm me,hope this helps.

    Problem with radio shack is that its usually more expensive then ebay.

    I dont know about you, but I have a collection of old unused power supplies. Its somewhat risky, but it is possible to find one with matching/close values and adapt it for use on the console. Make sure the voltages and polarity are the same, especially.
    Rarest games in collection: (R8) Chavez II for SNES / (R7) Star Gunner (Telesys) for Atari 2600

    Yea, I would think that Radio Shack would be a little expensive - plus some of these tips are not standard - C64, TI 99-4a, and Coleco, for example...

    But, one of those all-in-one power supplies with all the tips would come in handy for a lot of the others.

    most common is that you can recycle powersupplies from other stuff that you dont use nomore.. for instance.. one of our switches died at work so we got a new one and i got a 1A 9V DC adaptor as a leftover (aka SNES power supply)
    Broken? fix it.
