    Any word on what the required Volts and Mha are for each model? Best place to find universal power adapter?

    Okay thanks so much! I figured there must be some cheap alternative with all the multi-voltage options out there these days. Appreciate it.

    Newton Power Supplies

    Hello All; i have a chance to get a free Newton from a friend (finally, have wanted one forever!) He says "have the model 100, 120, even a 2000. You'll need to get a power supply for it." Is any of these models easier to find a power supply for, either OEM or realistically third party/generic? Thanks; and much appreciated if anyone has a source or links to the right supply that will fit any of these models. Was going for the 2000 because it probably has the most software/features/capabilities. Thank you!

    I have noticed the Imagewriter II trips my breaker for my office basement if i leave it plugged in. Is this more likely to be the power cord, or the unit itself? Seems to work fine but it's definitely this item, when i leave it unplugged not trip. When i leave it plugged in, the next morning it's dead down there. And this is into a power strip which is then plugged into an outlet.

    Wanted to let you guys know that those cheap $4 and change printer ribbons work great. I think they are new generics, not NOS from the 90's. Anyway for the price i feel like i did pretty well.

    For under $5 shipped I took a chance on it Will still try to buy new if anyone heard any members are still making them or have stock available. @maceffects mentioned to me he was out of stock.

    Thanks for the link; def going for box of tractor feed for old times sake. I think they still sell it at staples too of all places. I think if you do loose feed you have to feed it in one sheet at a time because there is no tray to support loose paper behind the machine...lol

    Thanks for the link! I also PM'd a member about ribbons that was mentioned earlier in the thread. I could feed in one page at a time but typically there is no way to use loose paper with these right? You have to use the connected paper? EDIT: Much better; made some space for it on the desk, now looks like a full 90's setup haha

    Dug out a Image Writer II Platinum and cleaned it up; hooked up to the 8600. It's a little old but there it was in the Chooser Prints okay; need to grab a new ribbon ASAP. Going to keep it setup and try to find a better home/location for it.
