    My best friend lost her power cord and her usb attachment cord to her new scanner. I am wondering if I can give her the power cord from my old scanner instead of her trying to find a new one to buy. Is there a standard step down for most scanners or could it be different and fry her new scanner ? Hers is an HP and my old one was a Umax . Thank you for any advice .

    Thank you very much . That is what my friend is going to do. I just wish one could buy parts as easily in Canada as one can in the USA. I would hate to see her fry her new scanner .. so thanks again .

    If you was a old analog hacker like me you would know what to do..wall-wart's come in maney flavories (volt/amps)...most say what thay are or if you can read a dvm....and know a bit about ohm's law..go for it with caution..
    or dont risk a bit of adventure..buy a new wall-wart PS...but if a sub make sure it right
